6th June Update – England still the best bet for Cricket World Cup 2019
It’s been a fantastic start to the Cricket World Cup, with some great games already.
Pakistan produced the shock of the tournament to date in beating host nation and World Cup favourites England in a thrilling game. For England, the game will act as a wake-up call and they still look the team to beat at 2/1 with bet365*.
Prior to that, the West Indies produced a blistering bowling display that was reminiscent of days gone by as they thrashed Pakistan in their opening game. The West Indies could be worth a small bet at 10/1 with Paddy Power.
It’s never wise to write off Australia and they started off with a comprehensive win over Afghanistan. At 7/2 with bet365*, they are sure to have plenty of backers. India also started with a good win over South Africa and will have plenty of support at 3/1 with BetVictor.
It’s already looking dire for South Africa after three straight defeats and having lost key pace bowler Dale Steyn for the remainder of the tournament with a shoulder injury.

Our 2019 Cricket World Cup Betting Tip:
Outright Winner – England @ 11/4 with Coral
Cricket World Cup 2019 Betting Preview
Cricket World Cup 2019 betting at this stage consists of the outright tournament winner or making the final. As we near the start date more markets will become available for 2019 Cricket World Cup betting, such as the top run-scorer and wicket-taker in the tournament and who will top the initial group stage in which all the teams play each other.
There will be a wide variety of other 2019 Cricket World Cup betting markets available too and, as with any major tournament, there will be a significant number of Cricket World Cup Free Bets on offer too.
England the favourites?
The host nation England are the current favourites to win the tournament at 11/4 with Coral, which is understandable given their status as the number one ranked team in ODIs at present.
In recent years England have adopted a far more aggressive and modern style of play in ODI cricket and the batting line-up contains a number of big hitters well down the order. There’s not much of a tail in the England batting line-up, which means they are usually capable of retrieving a game from a position of seeming hopelessness.

Fancy an Indian?
The second favourites in the 2019 Cricket World Cup betting are India. The Indians are a well-balanced team, led by the legendary Virat Kohli and with arguably the best pace attack in the ODI game, with Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami capable of inflicting serious damage on any batting line-up. India can currently be backed at 7/2 with William Hill.
Can Australia retain the trophy?
Australia are the current defending champions of the Cricket World Cup, having defeated New Zealand in the final by seven wickets on home soil in 2015.
Australian cricket isn’t in good shape at present, but Steve Smith and David Warner will be back from suspension ahead of the 2019 Cricket World Cup and that will give them a significant boost. The Australians are 5/1 with bet365*. and you write them off at your peril.

Other Cricket World Cup 2019 Betting Odds
Another potential candidate for the outright market for Cricket World Cup 2019 winner is South Africa. Quinton de Kock is capable of scoring at a rapid rate and, although now past his best, Dale Steyn remains a dangerous customer with the ball and now has some exciting back-up bowlers to aid him. South Africa can be backed at 7/1 with bet365*.
The other teams involved in the Cricket World Cup 2019 are:
- New Zealand, who are 9/1 with bet365*
