Back any side that bats first.

I was going to lump on Pakistan for the series but decided against at the last minute when England won the toss. I cannot see either side chasing anythig over 230-240. I got on England today at evens when we were 80 odd for 2.

I repeat the toss will be crucial in all games.


Bang goes that theory. ;) ;)


Read the thread on old lad -

Slightly different pitch, plenty of carry which with two new balls makes our attack dangerous. Pakistan will miss Younis Khan....I've backed England. Only £22 at 10/11 - not quite as confident with us chasing!

;)


I was going on your theory of bet on the side batting 1st. ;) ;)

Bet 5: £220 on South Africa at 10/11 in first test v NZ.

Can't see NZ getting enough runs against this attack. Saffers prob got enough already.

Well I lost the money, but at least the Number 1 ranking remains ours, for now.

Down to £1065.

Bet 6: England to beat Windies first Test £300 @ 1.75 on betfair.

Potential winnings = £214 after comms.

I may live to regret it if a much better price arrives nearer the time due to weather. If there is rain etc forecast then the draw may be close to evens and england odds against. Whatever the forecast the draw will be too short at kick off.

Weighed in, weighed in.

After 6 bets, bank = £1279

England went off at about 1.4 in the end. Haven't checked prices but if England are over 1.55 I'll be piling in again. Not sure if the relatively (to expectations) good performance of the Windies will mean that the England price lengthens. Either way the draw will almost certainly be too short, so if I don't like the england price I'll lay that.

Bet 7: Test Match finish days 1,2 and 3. available at 5/1 on betfair which seems very generous to me, though there isn't much available in fairness, though i'll pretend there is. £50 @ 5/1

bet 8 weighed in.

Balance after 8 bets = £1371.50

bet 9 lay draw 2nd Test Eng v Saffers: £150@2.5 = risk of £225
bet 10 lay draw 2nd Test Windies v NZ: £150@2.7 = risk of £255

Big troubles if both of these go down, unlikely though.
