Cricket Betting: India vs England ODI Series

January 15, 2017 by Posted in Cricket Tips

India and England resume their hostilities with the three-match ODI series set to start on Sunday, January 15. A short series is never an indicator of the teams’ capabilities but this one promises to be exciting – especially with the two teams entering the series under different circumstances.

India completely decimated England in the Test series preceding this and will look to continue their upper hand. Virat Kohli assumes charge as captain in ODIs in this series and going by what we saw in the Test matches he would be aggressive both with the bat and his captaincy.

All eyes will be on MS Dhoni the batsman and the returning Yuvraj Singh who should be eager to make his chance count. Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja will look to continue their stranglehold with the ball although flat pitches will pose a challenge.

This England side nevertheless, is a completely different outfit from the ones that toured in the past. Over the last couple of seasons, Eoin Morgan’s team has played fearless and entertaining cricket in all conditions.

The tourists also have a plethora of ODI specialists to call upon – Moeen Ali, Ben Stokes, David Willey and Adil Rashid add versatility to this line-up. Jason Roy and Alex Hales is a fearsome combo at the top and together with Morgan and Buttler, England have all the ingredients to match and defeat India.

India start as favorites and are offered odds of $1.44 (Ladbrokes) to win the series. England’s series win is offered at odds of $2.75 (Ladbrokes) and has value for punters. The market may not prefer England’s win but don’t be surprised if they win the series – especially with the talent they have in the squad.

Morgan is under pressure – although undue – after his absence from the Bangladesh series. Back him to answer the critics with his bat and end up being the top scorer for England. Odds of $6.50 (William Hill) look enticing.

TIP: Eoin Morgan England series leading run scorer – $6.50 at William Hill

This English side lives and dies by the sword and believes to be aggressive all the way. Back them to score more than their counterparts in the first 15 overs of the first ODI – odds of $1.91 (Ladbrokes) look worthy to punt on that.

TIP: England to score more runs in the first 15 overs – $1.91 at Ladbrokes
