Although the weather in England is typically bleak in the winter and arguably not much better in the summer, international cricket is watchable at all times of the year. England cricket odds are therefore available in virtually all of their 12 months as they play Test, one-day and T20 matches with some of the other best nations in world cricket.
England cricket betting best in Test matches
England are undoubtedly at their best in a Test environment, most notably because the likes of Alistair Cook and Jonathan Trott flourish more when they are not rushed at the crease. On home turf, England are arguably even more formidable because of the dynamics of their bowling attack. Overcast conditions often suit the swing of James Anderson, while the added height of Chris Tremlett, Stuart Broad and Steven Finn means they get plenty of pace and bounce, which is something many overseas batsmen are not used to.
Lack of all-rounders means England less of a one-day cricket betting prospect
The fact that England lack a dominant all-rounder in the mould of Ian Botham and Andrew Flintoff of old often hinders their chances of winning in one-day cricket. However, there are still plenty of cricket betting opportunities relating to England in one-day cricket, whether it be top runscorer of a particular match, top wicket taker or whether a certain batsman will score a 50 or a century.
As well as backing England to triumph in a particular Test or one day series, odds will also be available for bigger showdowns, which includes the Ashes every two years against Australia or a World Cup, where they face the likes of India, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
