Now That's Just Cricket!Published January 7, 2013 by OCR Editor
With some serious international cricket action happening right now, here's everything you need to know about online cricket sportsbets.
It's all very civil, crispy clean and sometimes a little confusing...but cricket, with all its stats and figures, probably offers the most interesting sportsbet options on the market: Who is the top team runscorer? Who got the most sixes? These are statistics which are readily available and therefore, bet-able!Types of Cricket Bets
To start, you can always place a straight cricket betting wager on which team will win, also known as an outright bet. You've also the option of betting on the probability of a draw, known as tied match.
Or there is the detailed proposition cricket betting wager on particular game details, say, the number of combined runs, or to take a different example, how well a specific player will do.
On Over/Under scores, you predict how many runs will be scored by both teamed combined, usually betting on whether it will be above or below a given benchmark.
Batsman Matchbets play off two batsmen against each other, (even two batsmen from the same team). It is a bet on which of the players will score the most runs, get the most sixes and other head-to-head propositions.
It's really a very extensive list of options: Which bowler will score the most wickets? How many runs will a team score in an inning? Who will score the most sixes? Which batsman is the top team runscorer? Will a century be scored in the course of a match? What will be the first wicket method?
Then of course you can bet on the outcomes of entire cricket series and cricket tournaments.
Placing bets during the course of the match
To keep you really on your toes, you can also place bets during the course of the match. Who will be the next man out? What will be the next wicket method? How many runs will be scored in the next over?
These bets are particularly suited to the mobile live betting services provided by the major bookies.Cricket Bets for 2013: Upcoming matches
