Betting Coach - England vs India Third Test Day Two
A week or so ago, The Trumpet brought you the ante post value available for the Third Test. Despite the consensus being that it was India's day, with England doing as well as could be expected (assisted by the rub of the green with the umpiring), the bookies have shifted their stances quicker than Paul Nixon essaying his signature shot. England's favouritism is but a memory. The best odds available for an England victory are 11/2 (Sporting Odds), which might be worth taking hedged against Laxman as next man out available at 8/11 (Stan James). You can get 7/4 about India winning the Test (VC Bet), but with only a draw required by Dravid, I can't see him pressing for the win.
Perhaps the best value is found in the market for India's first innings - Stan James offer evens about any score above 505. Unless England's flogged bowlers can snare both Tendulkar and Laxman before lunch, I can't see England getting away with less than 350 to avoid the follow-on. The Trumpet's 10 Swedish Kronor would be with Stan James now were he able to access the British version of the site and therein place a bet on cricket!
