2019 Ashes Cricket Betting Odds and Tips

There’s no greater cricket rivalry than the Ashes, with England and Australia getting ready for the 2019 series which takes place between 1 August and 16 September.

England will be smarting after getting thrashed 4-0 in the 2017-18 Test Series, although it’s now clear that home advantage is playing a massive part in the outcome of results and it’s the hosts who have been installed as favourites to regain the famous miniature urn.

When do the Ashes Tests Take Place?

The first Test between England and Australia takes place at Edgbaston in Birmingham, with that match running between 1-5 August.

There is then a short gap to the second Ashes Test which is scheduled to take place between 14-18 August. This will be held at Lord’s in London which is the most prestigious of cricket grounds in England.

The third Test Match will take place at Headingley in Leeds, with the event taking place between 22-26 August and this could be a pivotal match in the context of the series.

The fourth Test Match will be between 4-8 September, with England and Australia meeting at Old Trafford in Manchester.

The Ashes Test Series could still be up for grabs between 12-16 September when England clash with Australia at The Oval in London.

England Favourites to Reclaim Ashes

Despite a 4-0 drubbing Down Under, the bookmakers think England will take the beating this summer and bet365 offer 3/4 that the home side regain the miniature urn.

Home advantage has clearly become a deciding factor in recent years, with England winning the latest series 3-2 in 2015, while there was a straightforward 3-0 win in 2013.

Indeed, the last time that Australia won The Ashes in England was in 2001 when they triumphed by a 4-1 scoreline, although things have been a good deal tougher for the Baggy Greens since then.

The bookies anticipate it to be a fairly close Test Match series, with Australia trading at 7/4 to win the Ashes in England this summer and they’re sure to make it a competitive encounter thanks to their quality personnel.

The draw is trading at odds of 11/2 for those that expect it to be a close encounter, while punters will be able to bet on Correct Score, Top Batsman and Top Bowler as we get closer to the action.
