Cricket World Cup Betting Preview PT 1

The 2015 Cricket World Cup is just around the corner with fixtures finally set to kick off today as New Zealand take on Sri Lanka in a battle which should set the tone for one of the co-hosts of the tournament and one of the big fancies coming into this widely-anticipated event. 


The opening stages of the competition will see some really pace-favouring pitches and that should make the entirety of each match be really interesting. It would be tough if each of the surfaces were slow and spin-favouring from the outset. Keep in mind that many sides might be playing with an experimental attack here as they will be a bit out of their element in the current setting. 

You’ll find New Zealand going into this match with a distinctly short price according to the bookmakers with a slim 4/9 on the outright match betting against Sri Lanka’s 7/4 price tag. 

In regards to the top New Zealand run scorer it looks like a three-way shoot-out between Williamson, McCullum and Taylor who are 3/1, 10/3 and 7/2, respectively. Not much is separating them and it’s going to have to be solved on the pitch. At this point, anything can happen. Mcclenaghan and Tim Southee are both favoured as the top wicket takers with the pair of them being priced at 3/1. 

In the second fixture of the tournament we have one of the best clashes in all of cricket as Australia play host to England. The Aussies are, understandably, getting the big edge from the bookmaker with a slim 4/11 price putting them in a good spot to move forward here with plenty of momentum. 

You can’t completely discount the English here and they had a pretty decent start to the pre-season with a few decent results before losing out to Pakistan in their final preparation fixture. Bank on England to at least outperform their 9/4 price tag though they may not be able to actually wrap up the win against the in-form Australians in front of their own fans.
