Test Series Betting

Test Series Betting

England captain Andrew Strauss has hit well over 6,000 runs in 89 Test matches

Siding with the home team is usually a solid strategy when getting involved in any Test series betting. Particularly when two teams are fairly evenly matched, home advantage could prove the deciding factor on the end result. This is not only because the players in the home team will be more accustomed to the types of pitches being used, but ground staff will even purposely set up a pitch to suit the hosts.

Analyse conditions ahead of Test series betting

With overcast conditions more common in England than many other countries, English batsmen in particular are typically better at playing swing bowling. This is something that proves especially problematic for batsmen from the likes of India and Sri Lanka who are far more used to dusty and slower pitches on the sub contient and therefore hold the upper hand when the pitch is better suited to spin bowling.

Lots of options with Test series betting

The majority of Test series’ are played over three or five matches and therefore it may pay to wait until the end of the first game before placing bets. This is because a clearer knowledge of the form of the players will be observable.

In terms of terms of Test series betting, the obvious market is what the correct scoreline of a particular series will be. Punters extremely confident of a team’s chances may want to predict a whitewash, although this is often dangerous as only a spot of bad weather and rain is required to virtually ensure one of the Tests’ ends as a draw. Other markets include which batsman will score the most runs in the series or which bowler takes the most wickets.

England are currently ranked the number one Test side in the world
