Both England’s men and women’s teams are in action this week. Check out our free cricket betting tips to find out how you can make a profit from the action.
England v India 3rd Test Match
After a hugely impressive first test victory, England came crashing down to Earth with a 317 run defeat in the second game of the series. Despite Joe Root’s comments to the contrary, the spin friendly pitch was clearly a big factor in that heavy loss and it would be a big surprise if India did not opt for a similar surface this time. However, the third test is a day night game, something that could play into the hands of England’s seamers. India have only ever played one home pink ball test before, in that encounter with Bangladesh their spinners failed to take a single wicket.
After rotating them in the first two tests, England could be tempted to play both Stuart Broad and James Anderson this week. With the pink ball expected to swing, the odds of 3.5 and 4.5 respectively on Anderson or Broad being England’s top wicket taker look very tempting.
As for India, Ishant Sharma is celebrating his 100th cap this week and the conditions may help him celebrate it in style. The wily veteren is a tempting looking 5.0 to be India’s leading wicket taker.
With the bat, Ben Foakes impressed during England’s otherwise dire first innings effort. Coming in at seven means he’s most likely to be facing plenty of spin, something he is accomplished at. Odds of 11 on him being England’s top run scorer in the first innings are too high to ignore.
In terms of the result, India are big favourites at 1.53, but given their struggles in the first test that seems somewhat short. England are equally fallible but their odds of 4.0 represent much better value in what could be a close contest.
New Zealand Women v England Women
Amazingly, World Cup holders England have not played a 50 over international for over 400 days. That ends in the early hours of Tuesday morning when they face New Zealand in Christchurch.
The bookies make England slight favourites, largely due to the experience of the likes of Nat Sciver and Heather Knight. But New Zealand have world class players of their own in Sophie Devine, Amelia Kerr and Amy Satterthwaite.
It promises to be a close and high scoring affair on a flat batting wicket, but if you’re looking for free cricket betting tips, then it might be wise to focus on the bowlers. The key difference could be England’s deep spin resources. Sophie Eccelstone is the number one ranked bowler in the T20 format of the game, so it’s no surprise that she is as low as 11.0 to be named Player of the Match. The more tempting price is the 26.0 on offer for leg spinner Sarah Glenn.
If you’re going for a New Zealand player, then Lea Tahuhu looks well priced at 21.0. She’s the hosts best seamer and one of the quickest bowlers in the women’s game.
Whichever free cricket betting tips you opt for this week, make sure you gamble responsibly.
