You are probably going to be put right off betting on the England v India 3rd Test if you are a big fan of the England team when you check out the early betting markets! For it is fair to say that England are going to take that Test in their stride and will win it easily.
That is not only a view shared by the majority of cricket fans by also by the odds compilers who work for every single online, mobile and land based betting company too!
The aim of a bookmaker is of course to make a profit, but whilst at the same time offering odds high enough that a punter will be interested in placing a bet on whatever sporting event has caught their eye and imagination.
However, having spent an absolute age this morning trying to find the best win odds on an England win in that 3rd Test, the highest odds I have found, which are not that high at all are 1/33 being offered by Betfred! India by the way at that betting site is on offer at odds of 25/1 and the draw odds if you are interested are 16/1!
How About a Bet on the Top England Series Run Scorer Instead?
As Jonny Bairstow is on offer at odds of 8/11 and Joe Root can be backed at odds of 6/4 to be named the top series run scorer in the series, it may be beneficial for you to bet on that betting market instead of the outright winner betting market.
What may also interest you to know that there are some even bigger odds available on players such as Alistair Cook, Chris Woakes and Keaton Jennings who are all pencilled up at odds of 16/1! Jos Buttler’s odds of being the top England series runs corer are 28/1 and Ben Stokes and Same Curran are easy to back at odds as high as 33/1!
Betting Opportunities on the Top England Series Wicket Taker
There is an odds-on chance that James Anderson is going to have earned the honour of being the top England series wicket taker, and that is something you can actually bet on at betting sites such as Betfred and the odds they are offering on him are 1/5.
Even though he is such a short odds-on player to take that honour there is also the chance that one of the other team members could take the most wickets in this series and some players to also consider betting on to do so are Stuart Broad at 7/1 and even Sam Curran and Ben Stokes at 12/1.
The odds on two other players that could take the most wickets in the series are high and do represent their realistic chances of doing so and as such you could choose to back Chris Woakes at 20/1 or if you like throwing caution to the wind when betting you can back Adil Rashid at 50/1!
