Despite England’s impressive victory on Tuesday, William Hill make Australia the slight favourites for the 2nd ODI. The visitors are 4/5 whilst England are even money. England are favourites for the series at 4/7 with Australia 5/4. Following his impressive century, Eoin Morgan is 4/1 to be England’s top batsman having been 5/1 in the first ODI and is 3/1 to score another century in the series. Hills are offering a match bet featuring Kevin Pietersen (8/11) and Morgan (Evs) on who will score more runs. The price for any player to hit a century in the 2nd match is 7/4 with no century priced at 2/5.

“A lot of people fancied Australia in the first ODI and that really worked in our favour. England have looked like a totally different prospect in shorter forms of the game recently, and we would be happy for people to continue backing the Aussies,” said Hill’s spokesman Rupert Adams.
