2013 Ashes Series latest odds – England vs Australia First Test odds

July 9, 2013

cricket-clarkeDavid Warner may have won the punch up, but it looks like Joe Root will have the last laugh, with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au pricing him as a $1.50 favourite to score more runs than Warner during the Ashes.

With some question as to how much Warner will even play, he is $2.55 vs Root.

It looks as though new opener Chris Rogers will have better luck with the bat, priced at $2.50 to play every Ashes Test of the series, with $10 priced for him to get the boot after the First Test.

And in good news for all involved, the weather isn’t tipped to play a massive part in the series, with $1.50 priced for there to be only 0-5 sessions lost due to rain.

“It looks like Warner is a decent chance to work his way into the team and take on Joe again but the betting says the Aussies are rooted!” said sportsbet.com.au’s Shaun Anderson.

England enter the First Test as $1.81 favourites with more than three times the money bet on them compared to the Aussies, who are $3.65 underdogs. The draw is the outsider in the market at $3.80.

Alastair Cook $4.33 and Michael Clarke $4.00 head the top runscorer markets for their respective teams, with sportsbet.com.au refunding punters top runscorer bets if their player makes ten or less runs!
