2017/18 Ashes Betting Preview PT 1

We are just a day or so away from the kick-off of the widely-anticipated 2017/18 Ashes Series in Australia and England come in looking to defend the coveted urn once again - while also trying to avenge a series whitewash the last time they played on Australian soil.

While the Poms have had plenty of good results go their way over the last couple of weeks and months, the fact remains that the bookmakers seem to fancy the Australians to get the better of them.

Looking ahead at the test series - which is always the focal point of the whole competition - you will find that it’s the Aussie side who command all the respect and you can expect their price to drop significantly should they be able to get a victory in the opening test.

Taking a look at the outright price for Australia to secure the Ashes, you’re looking at a listing of about 4/9 with a number of top bookmakers while England are available at a price hovering around a 7/4 margin. There is a lot to like about that price for the English at this point in time but you’re going to be waiting a while until you actually cash it since you can expect them to go pretty deep into the series before securing a victory.

The favoured series correct score seems to be listing Australia at a 3-1 margin and a 5/1 price to secure the Ashes on home soil. A 4-1 victory - which would be something because it would imply zero draws throughout the entirety of the test match series - pays out at a slightly higher price of around 13/2 or 7/1 depending on whom you’re wagering with.
