Betting on cricket can appeal to all types of punters – those who like a quick fix and others that prefer a more patient approach to winning money.
The nature of the sport, with its short, continuous flurries of action, lends itself to a huge array of betting opportunities on just about every possible outcome.
Bet on a range of Ashes markets
The types of bet available range from those that will be settled over a period of months, e.g. winner of a Test series such as the Ashes, to whether a wicket will be taken in the next over of a match.
Those that prefer the longer format of the game have the chance to take a view, for example whether England or Australia are more likely to win the next Ashes series and what the correct score will be.
You can also bet on who will lift the County Championship trophy and the other domestic titles up for grabs in the one-day game such as the Yorkshire Bank 40 and the Friends Life T20.
And overseas there is the Indian Premier League, which has generated huge betting turnover since its inauguration in 2008 - and lots of punters have won big on this competition which comprises the highly popular and exciting Twenty20 format.
Bet In-Play on the cricket where the odds change all the time
For punters who prefer to bet on the outcome of a match, there is the possibility to win big if you can predict what is likely to happen. Cricket matches can tilt from one way to the other in a very short space of time if a bowler gets on a roll and there are numerous examples of huge in-play odds being landed.
Perhaps the best example of that was when Ian Botham inspired 500/1 shots England to beat Australia at Headingley in 1981, but more recently there have been other occasions in the Ashes series when punters could win big thanks to the exploits of Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pietersen.
The emergence of online bookmakers has transformed cricket betting and means there are now much greater opportunties for bets that can be quickly settled while a match is in progress, such as Method of Next Dismissal, Fall of Next Wicket and Total Batsman Runs even when he is already at the crease.
You can also help yourself to money-back promotions that are offered by several bookmakers, such as stakes refunded on your Top Batsman selection if he is run out, or alternatively if he is clean bowled.
And when you have placed your bet, you usually get the chance to watch the match via the bookmaker’s live streaming service.
If you enjoy betting on cricket you have come to the right place. There will be a flow of information on this site on all the big events, as well as the best free bet and money-back offers and promotions to help you maximise your betting experience.
