Ashes 2nd Test Preview Pt 2

Australia are trading at a 13/8 price tag right now to win the second test while the draw is the next most-likely result with a 7/5 price tag just a slight shade behind an Australian victory. A drawn test isn’t really all that likely as a huge amount of rain doesn’t appear to be factoring into the forecast as we get closer to the next test. 


England are an 11/4 shot to pull off the outright victory and you reckon that’s a price that will definitely see the English punters get a bit more involved financially at the outset than the last test. It looks as though the interesting aspect of it could center around the live wagering and how that shapes up as there are a lot of different permutations in the mix. 

You get the feeling that England will prefer to field if given the opportunity, even if it means that the pitch might be a batters wicket. Coming in and immediately dropping a series of cheap wickets would be an absolute disaster for the English side and would see the momentum shift even more starkly in Australia’s favor. 

It is up to Alastair Cook and the rest of his men to figure out how to get the better of the Australians and get the momentum back in the favor of the three lions. 

England are available on a draw no bet at a 5/4 margin and that looks pretty good from an outright wagering perspective. Australia on a draw no bet are an 8/13 shot and thats not bad insurance for true believers of the Australian side. The Aussies are also favoured for the first innings lead with bookmakers pricing them at a very slim 4/6 price tag with England trading at 11/10. 

One thing we didn’t see in the last test was the stereotypical Aussie collapse that happened on a few occasions during the last Ashes series in England. If the Aussies don’t play nearly as brightly as they did the last time, it could well and truly be game on for both sides.
