How to Increase Your Winnings When Betting on Cricket?

Getting an edge over the bookmakers is very difficult, especially if you’re betting on cricket. Bookmakers use means and have all the statistics available have an advantage over you. They can easily draw conclusions on how to make their profits on you. So, in order for you to try and outsmart them and make your betting more profitable, you’d have to become a researcher and do all the statistics… or, you can use these 4 tips and start improving your game.

Check the Weather Conditions That Day

You’re not going to outmaneuver bookmakers by googling the weather forecast, because you can be sure that they will do that as well. No, the best scenario involves you checking the ground and seeing what the weather conditions are. Assuming you know the basic cricket rules, you should know that if the day seems humid, then you should not bet on many runs and put your wager on the team that has stronger bowling attack. On the other hand, if it’s a rainy day, you should expect more runs and favor the team famous for the batting.

Speaking About Betting on Runs – Be Careful with That

Betting on runs is actually the trickiest and riskiest bet you could possibly make. This goes especially for bets on the team you support. First of all, please check the weather before you even attempt betting on the overs or unders. There are two things that can happen. Bettors bet on overs more often than unders, and this is not something that bookmakers haven’t noticed so far. So, they are automatically tempted to make the markets unfairly high in order to balance the books. That’s why betting the unders will give you a better chance of getting the edge.

Try Betting on Both Teams

Everyone’s afraid of betting on both teams. Why? If you do it right, you’ll have a very profitable betting. The secret is in the game’s momentum – it shifts all the time. So, betting on the team that has reached 2.5 odds first, and then as the momentum changes, betting on the second team can give you guaranteed winnings. Be wary that this works when betting on limited overs.

Stay Away from Draw Bets in Test Matches

Especially if you’re a beginner in cricket betting, you should avoid betting on draws. I know it’s tempting and you’ve heard that this is the most popular bet, but for now, stay away from them. As you have read so far, there are many factors that intervene with the final result. The advice is to observe and wait for the momentum. See which team has it and bet on it. Don’t underestimate the pitch deterioration due to days-long matches, which can make batting pretty difficult during those last two days. You can click here to observe the results of the draws and wait patiently for the game’s momentum to shift. This is when you should place your bet. As soon as you put these tips into practice, you’ll see why they are essential. With time, you’ll understand the betting process and be good betting on your own.

Boyd Rankin 8/1 To Be Top Ashes Bowler

There’s now less than two months to go until the start of yet another Ashes series, and with the England squad now named, I thought I would have a look at the cricket betting odds for the top English bowler.

The name and the odds that immediately jumped out at me, was that of Boyd Rankin. Until the start of the recent ODI series against Australia, I would imagine Rankin would have only been an outside bet for a place on the tour.

Such was the performances of Rankin against Australia, he hasn’t only played his way into the squad, he may well have played his way into the starting XI. With this in mind, I think the 8/1 on Rankin being top English bowler looks a half decent price.  

A quick look at some of the other runners and riders tells me that the pitches probably won’t suit Graeme Swann, Monty Panesar won’t play unless there are injuries, and Ben Stokes will only play if England need to change tactics to get a result, so in theory he will only have a realistic chance of playing one to two Test matches.

Chris Tremlett is probably behind Rankin in the pecking order, leaving Steven Finn and Rankin vying for the final Test place. Steven Finn’s form hasn’t been great, but he does have Ashes experience down under. That said, I can still see Rankin possibly getting the nod ahead of Finn for the 1st Test.

That just leaves two smallish spanners in the works, in the shape of Anderson and Broad.

Jimmy Anderson seemed to struggle after the 2nd Test last summer, I don’t know whether he lost some of his edge, was fatigued, or was just a bit out of form. I know Anderson had a successful tour last time down under, but on the whole he hasn’t had his most successful times overseas, and the conditions aren’t going to be tailor made for him in Australia.

And finally Stuart Broad, who I think is the more in form of the two bowlers. The pitches will suit Broad, and he looked in reasonable rhythm at the end of the last Ashes series. He could also thrive under the expected pressure he looks likely to be put under. So I certainly wouldn’t rule Broad out of being top English bowler.

Personally, I wouldn’t be backing Anderson or Swann at their current prices, and while I think Broad could be the top performer, he is only 3/1. It would be some achievement for Rankin to be the top wicket taker, and just to clarify (as I don’t like giving tips), I’m not saying I think he will definitely be top the English bowler, I’m just commenting that he looks decent value at 8/1, and that I am going to have a bit of it.

A small hint….. if you open a William Hill account, you are entitled to a £25.00 Free Bet. This free bet could then be used for series bets like top bowler, or top batsmen, etc. These sort of bets are more ‘bit of interest bets’ to me, so free bets are ideal to use for them.

Cricket Tipster

For any visitors coming to this site looking for cricket tips, I’d like to point you in the direction of Cricket Tipster, a cricket tipping subscription service I have recently stumbled across.

Personally, I don’t like giving out cricket tips, as in the long run I believe they can lead to trouble. A couple of losses, and you have people on your back, your tips are rubbish, you’re a fraudster, etc, etc……

It’s for these reasons why I tend to try and avoid tipping and just stick to giving a view on how I think things might pan out, ie, weather, form, pitch, or if a price looks value or not. That way I’m not giving a definitive view on what I think might happen, so therefore I can’t get hammered when I (usually) call things wrong.

Cricket Tipster is a subscription service that can be bought in many differing currencies. It is £37 + VAT, which equates to around 44 British Pounds, 55 Euros, 68 US Dollars, or 4,300 Indian Rupees, to name but a few currencies, Paypal is also accepted.

Cricket Tipster also comes with a 60 day, 100% Money Back Guarantee, so you can effectively try it out free for a couple of months, and if you don’t like it, just get your money back.

This is what I usually look for when I am considering purchasing a betting system. If the systems owners/developers are willing to basically let you try it for free, then they are obviously confident that their product is good, and will stand up too scrutiny.

The man behind Cricket Tipster is Anth Raine. Anth is a former Ladbrokes betting shop manager, and as a result of this, Anth knows which markets generally don’t get the required attention from odds compliers, so he knows that mistakes happen in these particular markets.

Predicting Team A to beat Team B will most probably be priced up correctly. It’s the more obscure markets that the mistakes will happen in, and this is where Anth’s knowledge comes into play. A quick look at the screenshot below shows how Anth can spot a misaligned price in one of these such markets.

I’ve spent years following cricket betting, and I have to agree with this view that bookmakers can get these things wrong more often that they would like to admit too… not just with cricket as well.

Cricket Tipster claims the success of his system is down to the bookmakers inability to price up these cricket markets correctly, and I would believe that there is plenty of substance in that claim. And as a result, plenty of opportunity to profit.

So if you like the sound of this, and wish to try out the Cricket Tipster service, please click here….  PS, don’t forget there is a 60 day back money back guarantee, meaning you can effectively try the service free!
