If you enjoy watching and betting on cricket matches, then there is a very good chance you are already aware of the Test Series between New Zealand and England that will be starting tomorrow, and there are certainly a huge number of different betting opportunities available on that event!
With that in mind to allow you plenty of time to pick out the bets and wagers you may be interested in playing on the New Zealand versus England matches I will give you an insight into just which ones are currently on offer below.
I would point out though that from doing a little bit of research this morning, there is plenty of value to be had if you are prepared to shop around and carefully select just which betting sites and bookmakers you place such bets at, so make sure that is something you do.
The outright betting market is of course going to give you a long-term interest in this event, and as such you need to be aware that New Zealand are currently on offer to win outright are odds of 11/5.
You may however think it is going to end in a draw and that is something which could happen if the betting markets are anything to go by, for the draw odds are currently 7/4, but if you think that England are going to win outright then there is a little bit of value to be had currently, for their odds of doing so are most betting sites are 6/4.
Top New Zealand Batsman Betting
Another betting market that is going to be of interest to you if you like one player in any side, are the top batsman betting markets and there is of course plenty of players that could take that honour.
Therefore, let me now give you an insight into the associated odds with each player regarding the tops batsman betting markets that are currently live in relation to the 1st innings.
The odds available on the New Zealand players to be named as the top batsman based on how well they perform are as follows. The current favourite is Williamson, Kane and his odds do certainly reflect his chances and those odds are 5/2.
The next two players who are both second joint favourite to be the top batsman for New Zealand are Taylor, Ross and Raval, Jeet whose odds are both 7/2, but another player who may just take the top spot is Latham, Tom and his odds of doing so are currently 9/2
Nicholls, Henry and Watling, BJ can be had at 8/1 and if you fancy placing a bet on de Grandhomme, Colin you can currently take advantage of odds of 12/1.
The other players include Astle, Todd at odds of 20/1, both Southee, Tim and Henry, Matt are on offer at odds of 66/1, and Wagner, Neil is possibly not in with a chance for his odds are 100/1 and Boult, Tren is market up at odds of 200/1 to be named the top batsman for New Zealand in the very first innings.
Top Batsman 1st Innings England
Let me now move onto giving you an insight into the associate odds of each of the players that make up the England cricket team regarding them being the top batsman in the first innings.
Keep in mind that in the event of two players taking the top spot, then dead heat rules will often apply at the betting sites and bookmaker’s sites you have placed such a bet at.
It will probably not surprise you to learn that the odds on Root, Joe are low and those odds are 5/2, but if may be worth taking a chance on Cook, Alastair at 10/3, or even having a bet on Malan, Dawid at odds of 5/1 or possibly Vince, James and Stoneman, Mark who are both 11/2 to be the top batsman for England in the first innings.
The odds on the other players are Stokes, Ben at 6/1, Bairstow, Jonny at 13/2, Livingstone, Liam at 7/1, Foakes, Ben at 8/1, and for those of you that are prepared to take a punt of those players with much higher odds then you can bet on Ali, Moeen at 16/1, Woakes, Chris at 25/1 and Overton, Craig at 50/1.
For players that will probably have no chance what so ever of being the top batsman in the first innings are Broad, Stuart, Wood, Mark and Leach, Jack all on offer at odds of 100/1 and Anderson, James whose odds are huge at 200/1!
