Australia vs England Ashes First Test Odds and Betting Markets

November 21, 2017

dave warnerThe 2017-2018 Ashes Series between Australia and England will commence on Thursday at the Gabba in Brisbane.

Punters at Sportsbet are all over the Aussies heading into the First Ashes Test with the online bookmaker reporting more than four times as much money placed on Australia to win in Brisbane at $1.75.

One $6,000 bet on Australia was taken at $1.77.

While the money says the hosts will get off to a flying start, the generous price of $4.00 for England to win the series has been too much to resist for some.

Twice as many individual bets have gone on England to triumph over the five matches.

“No one wants to put their hard earned on England at the GABBA,” said Sportsbet’s Christian Jantzen.

“Punters are even more interested in the draw rather than the tourists, which isn’t surprising given the Aussies haven’t lost a Test in Brisbane since 1988.”

We highly recommend Sportsbet for betting on the Ashes Series as they have great odds and some of the best Ashes promotions online.
