The Ashes Betting

Betting on the Ashes is popular even for non-cricket fans during the semi-annual clash of England vs. Australia. Pride and international bragging rights are on the line as two sides compete in a lengthy tournament that involves a five test series and a one day series as well as a number of twenty20 fixtures.

The original Ashes series started back in 1882 and the name stems from when an Australian touring side beat an English side at the oval for the first time. An Aussie newspaper released an obituary stating that English cricket had died and its ashes would be taken to Australia. Legend has it that the ashes of a ball, bail or stump was placed inside a terracotta urn and presented to England captain Ivo Bligh.

Alternating England and Australia every two years, the Ashes Series represents one of the biggest sports betting events of the year. For tips on betting on the Ashes, head to our guide: How to Bet on Cricket.
