2015 Cricket World Cup Final Betting Tips PT 1

The final that virtually everybody wanted to see at this year’s Cricket World Cup will kick off at the MCG on Sunday morning as Australia take on New Zealand in what many expect to be an epic clash. The tournament co-hosts round out a very exciting tournament that saw a number of records fall and many subplots will reverberate around for the next few years at least until the next World Cup. 


The two sides met during the group stages and the Australians were able to just get the better of New Zealand - and only by a single wicket. 

Australia come into the fixture with a significant amount of momentum as they were able to get the better of India by a considerable margin in their semi-final match-up. They jumped out to a good early start and never really looked back - bowling India out on a flat pitch that favoured the batsmen and winning by nearly triple digits. 

New Zealand on the other hand were not favoured going into their match with South Africa and it literally came down to a six off the final ball as the Black Caps were able to pull off a massive reverse against the Proteas in a rain-affected match. 

The contrast between the two couldn’t be more obvious and that’s why you’ll find the bookmakers listing Australia at a price of around 4/9 right now for the outright victory and that’s significant considering the margin of the last victory. New Zealand can be backed for a 7/4 payout and that’s not a bad price tag as the margins can swing pretty quickly at the start of these types of matches. 

The bookmakers appear to be up in the air about whether a century will be hit in the match or not as they have the “yes” and the “no” options trading at 5/6 prices. The over/under on New Zealand’s fall of first wicket sits at around 28.5 while Australia’s is sitting closer to 30.5.
