Types of bets on cricket

On the outcome. In first-level cricket, there is a draw, so the odds on the outcome in test matches are three-way. A draw is not as common as in football, but still its probability is relatively high and comparable to hockey. In the one-day format and the “twenty” bookmakers offer two-way outcomes without the possibility of a draw.

Double chance. The same as in bets on the outcome, only in a double chance, you can sum up two outcomes for a lower coefficient — for example, that there will be no draw or that one of the teams will not lose at least.

For a head start. Here you can make a forecast on what advantage the team will win or more than what handicap will not concede to the opponent. For example, in test matches between strong teams, a zero handicap is very popular.

Totals. A bet on the number of runs per match or for a single segment-after 5, 10, 15 overs, and so on. This can be both General totals and individual totals for each team.

Player statistics. In the lines for top-level cricket, there are usually enough offers for personal achievements of players. Indicators are very diverse: the number of runs or 6-point strikes, various titles at the end of the match — the best batsman or the best player of the meeting.

Statistics of the match. Cricket is rich in various statistics and minor events. It is not difficult to find quotes for the number of runs-outs or the best result of the first partnership in the lines for big matches. Also, many offices offer to bet on how the first gate will be destroyed.

For the first innings. A fairly popular betting market in long test matches, because you don’t have to wait several days to find out the result of the first innings. In the first-inning line, you can usually find all the types of bets indicated above.

To the draw. The most primitive forecast that can be made by bookmakers at all major matches. The odds of guessing the attacking first team are 50-50, and you will still lose money on the betting margin when playing for a long time.
