It is crucial for bettors to understand online cricket betting odds when they are looking to bet. It is easy for an experienced punter but you can really scratch your head if you are trying to bet as a rookie. It is always smart to go through the guidelines and betting strategies which can help you bet on the right team or a player.

We take a look at some aspects which you should consider before putting your money on a particular player or team

 

Player:

Batsman – It is crucial to consider all the aspects. What makes a batsman successful – technique, form, class, conditions. There is no doubt one must back a top order batsman if you are betting in a ODI or T20I game, as they would have better chances of facing more balls and hence they can score more runs.

 

The conditions matter a lot as the home team’s batsman will hold his wood on the visiting team batters. He would know the conditions better and thus has higher success odds.

 

Furthermore, one can also take into account a batsman record at a particular venue or against the particular team. For example if batsman A is scoring consistently against Team B at venue C, it makes sense to put your bets on A. The form is also crucial and can help the bettor in finalising his or her bet.

 

 

Bowler:

 

Bowlers’ success mainly depends on their skills and the pitch conditions. So if the matches are taking place in English conditions, you back a bowler like James Anderson, who can swing the ball. Similarly if the matches are being played in Australia, where there is bounce in the pitches, you pick a bowler like Pat Cummins, who hits the deck hard. You can pick a spinner like Ravichandran Ashwin if India is playing at home and the tracks offer all the help.

 

Again consider which format of the game you are betting on. For Test matches, pick bowlers who can bowl a consistent line and length whereas pick bowlers who have more yorkers or have variations in their arsenal if you are betting in limited overs format.

 

Team:

 

The home team generally has the advantage in cricket especially when it comes to Test matches. All the top five or six teams like England, India, New Zealand and Australia are dominant in their own conditions.

 

A lot also depends on the collective form of all the players in the team. The team which has shown more promise of handling the pressure can be the team for your safe bet. Recently a trend has been noticed that a team which goes after a run-chase in limited over matches, wins more games than the team batting first.
