What Is The Cricket World Cup?

The Cricket World Cup is a festival of cricket that sees all of the top cricketing nations come together to battle for supremacy.

The tournament is played in the ODI (One Day International) format for practical reasons. An ODI is a format in which each team is given 50 overs (300 balls) to bat, and 50 overs to bowl. This means the match is completed in a single day, which is a far more exciting format for the fans, who see explosive cricket in one day rather than spread out across five days, such as in a Test Match. 

The Cricket World Cup is arguably to most popular cricket tournament for betting turnover as it is viewed as a an open contest, with any of the sides capable of winning. However, this has not stopped Australia from winning the four of the last five editions of the competition. 

The next World Cup will take place in 2019 with England and Wales hosting the tournament. Last time, Australia were able to beat New Zealand in the final in an event the pair co-hosted. This time around, they will find it tough to defend their crown as England are superb at exploiting the conditions on their own turf, while the likes of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and South Africa all have a very good chance of lifting the trophy, meaning any punter should have a long-hard think about who they will back in the Winner market.

2019 Cricket World Cup Outright Betting Tips

Cricket World Cup Winner

Here, you simply bet on the side you think will win the World Cup, it is as simple as that. Teams such as England, Australia and India make up the usual suspects, and they are at the head of the betting, with England the current favourites. However, this does not mean it is impossible to make a good profit by backing one of them as the bookies don't tend to shorten their odds too much before the tournament has even begun. This means that you can turn a profit if you back the successful team, while you can bide your time and place a bet once the action has begun as this market is usual open until the final. Of course, you risk having to take worse odds if you are backing an England side that have won all three of their opening three games. 

Name The Finalists 

This market gives you the chance to back two different sides that you just cannot choose between to instead both reach the final. You can get the chance to make some good profit in this market but only if both sides make it to the final. This of course means there is a lot more risk as the Cricket World Cup is incredibly competition. You can wait to see how the teams are doing in the competition before placing a bet, but the odds will likely shorten quickly. You will also need to map out potential routes to the final which can be very difficult as all the teams are in one group. You may want to do some research before backing England to play India in the final if the two look likely to meet in the semi-final instead. 

Top Batsman 

In this market you simply back the batsman you think will top score across the tournament. You may think Chris Gayle will score the most runs, however, you should remember that if the West Indies are unable to make it out of a very competitive group, then Gayle may play two less games than a rival. For example then, Gayle may have scored 650 runs in the group in comparison to Jos Buttler's 500. However, if England make it to the final and he scores 95 and 105 in the semi-final and final, he will end the tournament on 700 runs, seeing your bet return nothing. 

Top Bowler 

Much like the Top Batsman market, here you can back the bowler that you think will finish at the top of the standings. Perhaps Stuart Broad is the man you think can exploit the conditions best for England, or maybe Sunil Narine will get everyone in a spin across the tournament. This is another market you can bet on pre-tournament or during, which means you can hold-off on making any bets until you have seen how is making the ball talk. 

2019 Cricket World Cup Match Betting Tips

Betting on the Cricket World Cup and Cricket in general has never been easier with the mass array of market that are available to potentially make a profit on. 

Bettingpro offers Cricket betting tips for all manner of games from Twenty20 matches, to Test Matches and, of course, the World Cup, and the following markets are prominent in our previews:


This is the simplest market of them all. Here, you simply back which of the two teams will win, or if the game will end in a draw. This is the standard market in which every game will feature. However, it goes without saying that sometimes it does not offer good value. If you are backing an England team that has won six games out of six and are the favourites to win the competition against a Bangladesh side that have lost all of their games so far, then backing England will not offer particularly appealing odds. 

Highest First 15 Overs

This market is one that can often be very difficult to call due to the nature of the game. The first 15 overs consists of 90 balls, and this market lets you bet on which team will score the most runs in that time. However, backing South Africa to out-score Pakistan in the first 15 overs may be a good idea on paper, but if the Proteas lose three wickets inside the first five overs, they will then have to look and consolidating their position and re-building, which could see just 50 runs scored in that time.

Top Team Batsman

Here you will back which batsman from a certain team will top score, it is as simple as that. If New Zealand are playing India, but you are not sure whether New Zealand's Kane Williamson will outscore India's Virat Kohli, you can instead back Williamson to top score for New Zealand. This market may see the odds of your pick shorten, but it means he only has to outscore 10 other teammates, rather than 21 other players.

Top Batsman

So backing Buttler to top score for England in the game isn't quite offering good enough odds for you? Well, you can invariably see those odds stretch by backing him to be the top scorer on either side. This market brings added risk as if Buttler top scores with 20 as England collapse to 95 all out, then you could see the opposition's openers easily cruise past his score to the win.

Highest Opening Partnership

Here, you will back the opening batsman that you think will score the most runs for either side. You may feel that Pakistan's openers have the edge over Sri Lanka's and you would therefore back their openers to outscore their counterparts. 

First Wicket Method 

This is a market in which you need some real knowledge, and a lot of luck! The available options for how the first wickets will fall are caught, bowled, LBW (Leg Before Wicket), run out, stumped and others. With so many options you are best to do some research on the bowlers for the side you are backing. For example, you may feel that Stuart Broad will get a lot of joy when it comes to swinging the ball away from the batsman, therefore, backing the first wicket to fall as 'caught' would make sense. Although, sometimes batsmen can have moments of utter madness, with a lack of communication seeing them run out, which means all of your careful research was for nought. That's where the element of luck comes in. 

Total 6's

This is a market I would say is best utilised in the  limited overs format of cricket. You simply bet on how may 6's will be scored in the game. You will usually be given an option such as 'under 7.5' or 'over 7.5' so, simply put, you bet on whether you think there will be more or less that 7.5 6's.

Cricket World Cup History

Due to the array of formats in the game, it is difficult to say which is the most coveted. More tradition English and Australian players may claim an Ashes victory is the most coveted prize, while a win between India and Pakistan, in a game that is always hotly contested, may rank highest for players from the two nations. 

In Twenty20 cricket, perhaps winning the World Cup or IPL trophy is the biggest achievement, while the World Cup in the 50 over format may be the main trophy players want to win. 

Regardless of this, there is a rich history in the 50 over format of the World Cup.
