Ashes: Betting Support Switching To England

With the start of the Ashes just days away, William Hill can report a reinvigorated English public are getting behind their team with 70% of all wagers struck since the New Zealand ODI series win being for a victory for Alastair Cook’s side.

Despite the renewed support for England, they are 7/2 to win the series with Australia 4/11 and the draw 7/1.

“For the first time since last year, punters are getting behind England,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “All of the money over the winter was for Australia and given the woeful World Cup and  the Baggy Greens’ dominance in the Tri-Series, it was easy to see why. Since the New Zealand series, however, it has been nearly one way traffic for England.”

Australia are 10/11 to win the first Test with England 3/1 and the draw 5/2.
