Australia vs England 2015 World Cup Betting Preview

The 2015 Cricket World Cup gets underway with a bang at the MCG tomorrow and Australia will host England in the opening game of the tournament on Australian soil. cricket-03

Australia have dominated the recent meetings between the two sides and they are clear favourite to make a winning start to their World Cup campaign after they beat England on three occasions during the Carlton Mid One-Day International Tri-Series.

England gave the Aussies a scare when they posted a total of 303 in their second meeting at Bellerive Oval on January 23, but Australia were able to chase down the total and they bowled England out for just 166 in the final at the WACA on February 1.

Based on their recent meetings the $1.35 on offer for Australia to start the tournament with a win with seems like a fair price, but it must be noted that England upset Australia in their only previous World Cup meeting on Australia soil and could represent a bit of value at $3.20.

Punters not willing to take the $1.35 on offer need to look a little bit further for value, but thankfully Ladbrokes Australia are offering over 40 different betting markets for every single game during the tournament.

Australian Test captain Steve Smith has been in absolutely scintillating form over the past 12 months and the $7 on offer for him to be the highest scoring batsman in the match represents outstanding value.

Don’t forget that with if your top run scorer bet in any World Cup match is out either bowled or LBW you will receive your stake back in the form of a bonus bet.

England have been completely unable to cope with Mitchell Johnson in all of their meetings since the start of the 2014/0215 Ashes Series and the Australian fast bowler is priced at $10 to be named as man of the match and $3.50 to be Australia’s top wicket-taker.

English captain Eoin Morgan has been in awful form since arriving in Australia and I would be more than happy to take advantage of the $1.87 on offer for the Irishmen to score less than 24 and a half runs.
