Betting Guide For The 2013/14 Ashes Pt 3

Ryan Harris and Stuart Broad are also both trading at 5/1 just a shade behind Anderson, who will likely win it if he plays to the level he did during the last series and manages to stay healthy and play all five tests. 


Graeme Swann and Peter Siddle can both be backed at 6/1 while Mitchell Johnson is the last really plausible winner with a 13/2 price tag being floated by bookmakers. The odds then take a big jump up to Nathan Lyon who is at 12/1. 

It’s interesting that Michael Clarke is the favourite to be named top Ashes Series batsmen and thats either a testament to the bookmakers belief that Clarke will take lots of betting volume, or it’s the fact that they only have one plausible winner from the Aussie batting contingent. After Clarke’s 5/1 price tag, you’ll find Alastair Cook at 11/2, Kevin Pietersen at 6/1 and Jonathan Trott trading at a 7/1 margin. 

Ian Bell had an excellent series last time and was easily England’s stand-out batsman at the key moments in the series. His grit and guile was able to steady England on more than one occasion when they were getting pummeled by the Aussie attack. 

England are favoured by the bookmakers to win two tests with a 7/4 margin being the shortest-priced option in the Number of England Wins market. Three tests to England’s credit trades at a 5/2 margin while one can be backed at 11/4. A four test smashing of Australia rewards at 8/1, which the bookmakers consider as plausible as England not wining a single test. 

A five win series whitewash, which would rank as one of the greatest English sporting achievements of all time, is priced by the bookmakers at a 25/1 margin.
