If you are a fan of one of the oldest sports that originated in England, here is the article to read and dig deep into the cricket betting. Even if you are a die-hard fan of cricket who never misses any match of his favorite team or a person who watches cricket in his leisure time, you need to brush up some stuff before betting in a cricket match. The following are the types of cricket betting that will be included in any cricket betting software usually. After going through this article, you might find something useful for your cricket betting.
This is a commonly known type of betting. The bet is very straightforward, with only three outcomes that we can expect. The first outcome is that the home team or your favorite team can win, the second outcome is that the opposing team can win the match. The third outcome is the match ending in a draw. The last outcome is extremely rare and cannot happen in certain situations. For example, the match will not be concluded as a draw if it is a final match of a tournament or a knock-out match of a tournament. This wager is extremely popular and is practiced for a very long time.
This is a tricky wager as it requires one to predict the exact number of runs scored by a team in an innings. This is considered as an under-wager as the probability of predicting the score in exact numbers is extremely low. So to avoid such scenarios, the sportsbook will post an estimated score, and the wagers can be placed on it whether the score of that innings would be over or under that number mentioned.
If you are looking for a particular player to bet on, then top bowler is one such wager to place. You can select the bowler that you have predicted will take the maximum number of wickets in the match. Sometimes the odds can extend to several matches or the entire tournament.
This is another player specific betting wager in cricket. You will have to select the player whom you have predicted to score the maximum runs in an innings. Similarly, this can also extend to the whole tournament because the IPL, a popular limited-overs cricket tournament in India offers special recognition to the player who scores the maximum runs in that tournament.
Tournament outright winner:
This is one of the wagers in which the winner of the tournament is predicted. You can select any team from the tournament that you think will end up as the winning team. This wager needs to be placed before the commencement of the tournament.
Method of dismissal:
If you are betting on at the live session, then here is the ideal wager for you. You need to predict the dismissal of a batsman. The options that you have in this wager are caught, bowled, run out, LBW, and stumped. You can also predict the score of a batsman at the time of his dismissal.
Odd or Even runs:
In this type of wager, you need to decide whether the final score of innings will be either an odd number or an even number. Even though this is a simple wager with only two outcomes, this is quite a popular wager.
Man of the match/Man of the series:
This is a wager to decide which player will be awarded the ‘Man of the match’ or ‘Man of the series.’ But these kinds of bets are mostly placed in international tournaments.
Voila! That’s the end of the article. You would have gained a greater understanding of the types of cricket betting. Best of luck with your bets in cricket tournaments.
