Following their comprehensive and largely unexpected 381-run win over England in the opening Test in Brisbane, Australia are now odds-on to win The Ashes.

Ladbrokes have slashed their odds to win the series in to 4/6 and England are now available at 5/2.

Furthermore, money has come in for Australia to complete a 5-0 whitewash, which is now a 16/1 shot from 50/1.

However, England are given a 20/1 chance that they come back and win the series 4-1.

"The patriotic money is still coming for England as punters write off the result at The Gabba as a formality," Jessica Bridge, Ladbroke's cricket betting expert said.

"Australia's outright price is being nibbled at, but it's the bigger prices on offer for the whitewash that's attracting the most cash for the home side."
