Cricket markets we tip from
We will look across all markets to find the best bets for you. However, with the stats, we use we are often found in the same markets. We avoid markets such as who will score x runs in which over and trying to predict the over of the first wicket as we feel these are more punts than calculated bets.
Here are our most popular tipping markets for single matches
- Total match wickets – under/ over
- Total match runs – under/ over
- Top bowler or batsman – Either whole match or team
- Team total runs – under/ over
We also do a number of tips from Betway India #Betyourway markets as the off something different than the standard markets. These give you the opportunity to place multiple bets on the same match by combining the markets.
Match – Kohli to score over 49.5 runs, India to win the match, Rohit to take over 0.5 wickets.
IPL Tournament – Over 149.5 tournament sixes, Mumbai Indians to make the final, over 0.5 5 for wickets, Gayle to hit the most sixes.
Over time we will be selecting our own picks that you will be able to bet on in the major tournaments.
As well as individual match markets we look to the tournament markets for our more long term tips. As well as the who will win the tournament there are often over 20 other markets to pick from. These are not as popular from a betting perspective as the to win market but offer some good value and add some interest to the tournament.
The markets we often look to from our stats are as follows –
- Total sixes (T20 tournaments)
- Top score by any batsman – under/ over
- Total tournament runs – under/ over
- Total tournament wickets – under/ over
