Cricket One Day International Odds
Like all forms of cricket, there are lots of things to consider ahead of looking at one day international cricket odds.
The team playing at home must be given a slight advantage as typically their players will be more accustomed to the conditions, while analysing conditions on the day of the game could also impact the result.
Finally, waiting until the last moment after the coin toss may be worthwhile as the team winning the toss will have the benefit of taking advantage of the most favourable conditions.
England improving in the one-day international cricket odds
England have not always been the strongest one-day cricket nation and although they still have a higher ranking in the Test environment, they are certainly improving.
They now have four bowlers each offering something different and that are all capable of taking wickets. James Anderson gets plenty of swing, Stuart Broad finds extra bounce, Tim Bresnan skids the ball onto the bat and Graeme Swann causes problems with his spin.
Even though Kevin Pietersen’s retirement from one-day cricket is a blow, there is also still a nice mix of patient scoring and quick runs in the batting department.
This bodes well for 2013 Cricket World Cup, where England will be optimistic of bettering their result of four years ago when reaching the quarter finals.
