England are the 6/5 favourites to defeat India in the third test which starts on Wednesday but despite this, William Hill punters are staying away from the home side, instead lumping on India at 7/2. One London punter has staked £2,000 on MS Dhoniâ€™s men and that is only the crest of the iceberg with an Indian victory costing Hills a five figure sum.
England are now just 1/6 to become the top ranked test side in the world according to Ladbrokes.
Following their second victory against the tourists they are slashed to 1/100 to win the series with the draw the only other option for India at 16/1.
Sachin Tendulkar is 8/11 not to get his 100th International century during the current Test series and bet365 have chalked up 33/1 about a hat-trick in the 3rd Test after Englandâ€™s comprehensive victory over India at Trent Bridge.
bet365 cricket betting spokesman Steve Freeth said: "We saw money for the draw when it drifted out to 21/10 and India were well supported in-play after their flying start on Friday, so an England victory is a decent result for us."
Much has been made of the controversy surrounding Ian Bell at Trent Bridge on Sunday and bet365 have reacted by going 20/1 that he is run out during the 3rd Test.
bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth said: "Something tells us that Ian Bell will be a bit wiser between the wickets at Edgbaston."
The draw is now a 21/10 poke with bet365 as England and India prepare to face each other in the 2nd Test at Trent Bridge on Friday.
On the latest cricket betting odds, bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth said: "A good weather report and a ground renowned for producing a result has seen the draw drift from 13/8 out to 21/10."
England have been trimmed from 11/10 to even money to win the second test according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies report a reverse in punter sentiment in the absence of India bowler Zaheer Khan and it's the home side who are now backed following the gamble on the draw earlier in the week.
The draw has again been well backed ahead of the second test according to Ladbrokes.
A stalemate represents 75% of the money taken for the match so far at 7/4 as punters shun India at 3/1 and the hosts at 11/10.
England are now 1/4 to win the India Test series according to Ladbrokes.
The bookies relished the host's victory having laid the draw consistently at top price from 6/4 upon announcement of the series through to 4/6 on the morning of the game and have come out in front thanks to several five figure bets on a stalemate over the weekend.
The draw is a best priced even money with Ladbrokes in the upcoming 1st Test between England and India.
The bookies then go 2/1 England with India the 10/3 outsiders. The series betting is tighter and hosts England currently trade as 6/5 favourites. India are 2/1 chances from the draw at 5/2.
Run machine Sachin Tendulkar is a century away from his 100th international hundred and bet365 are 9/4 about him making it in the 1st Test at Lord's.
bet365 spokesman and cricket betting expert Steve Freeth said: "Some people will feel it's all set up for the 'Little Master' to reach the milestone at the home of cricket."
bet365 are seeing money for both England and the draw but very little for India (13/8 out to 11/5) in the forthcoming Test series which kicks off at Lord's on Thursday.
bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth, on the latest cricket odds, said: "India have had very little time to get to grips with the English conditions and Sehwag will be missing early on - we're seeing very little interest in the world's number one side."
England take on India this Thursday in the first Test of a series that could send them to the top of the rankings. The hosts are the 6/5 favourites with Paddy Power to prevail in the series over India starting this Thursday at Lordâ€™s, following the release of the latest cricket betting odds. However England need to win by two clear Tests to oust India from the Number 1 Test ranking spot, currently a 5/2 shot.
The draw has been well backed for the opening test match against India according to Ladbrokes according to the latest cricket betting odds.
The stalemate opened at 6/4 but a steady flow of support has seen its price move into even money leaving an England win at 15/8. It's 3/1 the tourists win the opener.
England are narrow 4/5 favourites with Ladbrokes to win the fourth ODI at Trent Bridge tomorrow and bounce back from a disappointing performance at Lordâ€™s.
Jonathan Trott and captain Alastair Cook are 7/2 joint favourites to top-score for England, while Graeme Swann is 5/2 favourite to be leading wicket taker at his home ground.
One Betfair punter is celebrating after placing £5 on England to beat Sri Lanka at the maximum odds of 999-1 on Betfair.
In one of the most stunning turnarounds in cricket betting - if not cricketing - history, the draw was also backed at the minimum price of 1-100.
England are 4/9 with Ladbrokes to win the Test series against Sri Lanka.
It's 10/11 they win the opening test with 4/1 the price the tourists cause an upset. It's 13/8 the first match is drawn with 10/3 the entire series ends all square.
Punters aren't in a rush to back England to beat Sri Lanka on the forthcoming Test series.
bet365 spokesman Steve Freeth says: "It's fair to say we havenâ€™t been bowled over with punters wanting to back England and most of the money we have seen has been speculative bets on Sri Lanka to win the Series and to win in Cardiff."
