Betting Guide For The 2013/14 Ashes Pt 1

We are just a mere 24 hours away from the kick-off of the Ashes and it looks like things are heating up on the pitch and in the press as Kevin Pietersen has been engaged in some banter with the Aussie journalist corps. There is a lot to like about the way that this series is setting up with the Australian’s now looking comfortable in their role as underdogs and you get the sense from each of the players that they genuinely believe they can get the Ashes back from England on their home soil. That always adds a bit of spice to this epic sporting rivalry. 


Matt Prior is the big question mark for England and he has been working extremely hard in training for quite some time now to come back from an injury sustained a while ago. Expect him to maybe not make the first test but to play the bulk of the test matches going forward after this one. 

Michael Clarke’s struggles against England have been well-documented and he has just had a tough time getting things coordinated and together when he’s facing at the crease. They must be confident going into the Gabba but it’s certainly looking interesting, especially if he doesn’t do so well on his first session. 

The English are priced at evens to win the Ashes 2013/14 series outright and they’re facing off against the Aussies, who trade at 6/4 - those are fairly customary money lines at this point. A drawn series, which would see England retain the Ashes, is trading at 9/2 and some might jump on that early just because it’s a hefty price at the moment and represents some outright value - though we are unlikely to lose entire tests due to rain or poor conditions. 

A series draw no bet (which refunds your stake if the series is drawn) sees Australia trade at 11/10 and England priced odds-on at 4/6. Punters looking to add a little bit of value might do well to back the “Series Result and Both Team To Win A Test” Market, which sees England enhanced to 6/4 - you reckon that Australia will win at least one test match on home soil, while they trade at 2/1 to win it and England to win at least one test. In that market, a drawn series logically trades at 4/1.
