How to bet on Cricket

Head to head – The most simple way to bet on cricket is head to head. Simply bet on the winner out of the two teams playing.

To Win the Toss – Bet on one side to win the toss at the start of the match.

Top Team Runscorer – Back a player on a team to be the highest run scorer. It’s available for all cricket types, such as test cricket, one-day internationals and twenty20. For test cricket, bookmakers will generally just offer the first inning. The top runscorer markets can offer value cricket betting and it’s recommended to stick with the top four batsmen.

Man of the Match – Cricket betting also allows for punters to predict the man of the match in any cricket match. It comes with value odds, but can be a tough bet to win.

Multi-betting – Cricket multi-betting is popular during twenty20 tournaments (Big Bash, IPL etc) when multiple matches are played on the same day or within a couple of days.

Futures – Bet on future cricket betting markets such as Cricket World Cup, Ashes series winner and Big Bash tournament winner before the season even starts.

Player props – Some bookmakers can offer odds for players to score a certain amount of runs or taking a bag of wickets.


Cricket Betting Strategies

Home ground advantage – The Home ground advantage is arguably the biggest consideration for cricket betting. The reason being is home teams generally perform much better on their home pitches. Take India for example as they dominate test cricket at home but struggle in Australia on bouncy wickets. But the same can be said for Australia. They have a hard time winning in different away conditions such as spin in India and swing in England.

Injuries – A cricket team consists of 11 key players and a missing batsman or bowler can make the difference for a team. For example, if Steve Smith or Virat Kohli is missing from their respective teams, the other team is a much better chance of winning.

Weather – The weather can play a huge part in cricket betting. For example, if the weather is showing signs of rainy conditions, both teams are expected to struggle in tougher batting conditions. But if the sun is shining and the pitch is hard, batting will be easier. So it’s important to check the weather forecast and base your cricket bet on the expected conditions.
