Australia Massive Favourites to Win 2021-22 Ashes

Australia’s pre-Ashes preparation was dealt a blow recently when Tim Paine stepped down as Australia Test captain due to historical tweets, although it hasn’t really affected the overall betting odds when it comes to the forthcoming five Test Match series.

The Ashes start on 8 December and it’s likely that Paine will retain his place in the team despite being stripped of the captaincy, with Australia a best price 1/3 to claim a series win and it’s easy to see why the bookies are making the Baggy Greens strong favourites.

Australia Predicted to Enjoy Easy Ashes Win

It’s now regularly the case that the Ashes side with home advantage often has the edge when to this competition and the 2017-18 Ashes series saw Australia claim a 4-1 triumph, with this success coming after the Aussies enjoyed a whitewash during the 2013-14 series although the personnel have clearly changed quite a great deal since then.

When Do the Five Ashes Tests Take Place?

The First Test will kick off the series and this traditionally takes place at The Gabba, with the Brisbane ground hosting a keenly-awaited affair and this will run between 8-12 December. The Australians are strong favourites to make a winning start against an England side who have recently been shaken by a racism enquiry in recent weeks.

The action will then move to the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide, with this Test Match being played between 16-20 December, while there will then be a Christmas Test Match at Melbourne Cricket Ground which is set to run between 26-30 December.

Australia clash with England in the Fourth Test between 5-9 January 2022, with Sydney Cricket Club hosting this match before the final game takes place at Perth Stadium in Perth.

England Betting Outsiders at 4/1 to Regain Ashes

England are outsiders for a reason although there’s a strong case for the tourists being competitive this season. Joe Root will hope to lead his team to success and he certainly has some quality attacking bowlers who can cause problems for the Australians, despite the latter setting their own pitch.

Stuart Broad and James Anderson represent the old guard and now have a wealth of experience when it comes to heading Down Under to perform for their country, with the bigger question being whether there are enough players who can score runs with the bat. Joe Root will lead by example but has often run out of partners.

Ben Stokes will clearly be required to perform to a high level in order for England to stand a chance, with Dawid Malan and Jonny Bairstow the only players to have scored a Test century in Australia although that happened four years ago.
