Free Cricket Betting Tips

The English cricket season is just a couple of weeks away. There’s a packed calendar of both domestic and international action, meaning there are going to be plenty of opportunities to take advantage of free cricket betting tips. With that in mind, here are three general pieces of advice to consider whenever you look at free cricket betting tips.

Lay the draw

Draws used to be commonplace in cricket, but due to the speed of the game improving and batters being less willing to preserve their wicket at all costs, the number of draws in Test cricket and County Championship games has halved in the last 30 years. However, around a quarter of Test matches still result in a draw, so a share of the spoils isn’t entirely out of the question.

Generally speaking, there are two reasons why a Test ends in a draw. Firstly, you occasionally get wickets that offer absolutely nothing for the bowlers, combine that with strong batting line ups and a draw is very likely. Secondly, and more commonly in England, the weather can ruin things.

The draw is often a short odds bet with bookmakers, despite it being relatively unlikely. You can take advantage of this by ‘laying the draw’, in other words betting against a draw. If rain or the wicket subsequently mean that a draw is more likely, you can hedge your bets by betting on the draw. Thanks to the length of the match, you will have plenty of time to carefully consider if and when to do this.


Watch the game

Cricket scorecards can be misleading. For example, India are 270-2 after 40 overs in the first innings of a One Day International. This looks like a fantastic position so the natural inclination is to back India regardless of the price. But had you been watching the game, you might have noticed a few mitigating factors  - maybe India have been really lucky with umpiring decisions or dropped catches, maybe the wicket is a batting paradise and the opposition are loaded with attacking batters. Or maybe there’s heavy rain in the background and the game is likely to be abandoned. 

Unless you’re watching the game closely, it’s very hard to know how it’s progressing.



Bet after the toss

The toss in cricket can be absolutely pivotal to the outcome. In Test matches, a deteriorating wicket can give the side batting first a huge advantage. Whilst in T20 and one day cricket, most teams prefer to chase. There’s also the weather factor to consider in one day cricket. A forecast of rain for later in the day can give the side batting second a helping hand thanks to the Duckworth Lewis method. 

In evenly matched fixtures, the toss can have a huge impact on the outcome. So it’s sensible to wait until it’s taken place before placing a bet.


It promises to be a fantastic season of cricket. Enjoy the action and look out for more free cricket betting tips in the next few weeks.
