Be careful when making your selection. You might think that Sri Lanka (for example) have a great bowler who will take loads of wickets, but you have to bear in mind that they might get knocked out in the round robin stage and therefore, their top bowler will play less matches than at least 4 other team’s bowlers.
Another thing to watch out for is the dead heat rules, as this will vary from bookmaker to bookmaker. Some bookies might pay out on half the odds if there is 2 bowlers who end up with the same amount of wickets.
Another way of deciding who wins the bet in the event of 2 (or more) bowlers ending up with the same amount of wickets, is by declaring the bowler who has the lowest average runs conceded per wicket as the winner.
It’s best to check with your bookmaker which way their dead heat rules work before placing your bets. Other popular betting markets are Champions Trophy Outright Winner Betting, and Top Champions Trophy Run Scorer Betting.
