Australia vs England - both sides to score a century

Cricket - ODI - 19 Jan 03:20

Price boost from Skybet.

ODI cricket in Australia is played on absolute roads these days, the Aussie administrators think the public want to see 300 plays 300 and they're probably right. Since the beginning of the last Australian summer (December 2016) they've hosted 9 ODI's and an Australian has made a century in 8 of those games.

Warner has a formidable record in ODI cricket of converting 50's in tons, Finch can bat deep on his day (as shown in the 1st ODI) and Smith was in very good touch in the tests.

Their middle/lower order is a little underwhelming on paper, but Head has made a ODI ton (batting up the order) and both Mitch Marsh and Stoinis have shown they can score centuries when getting going late on in the innings.

The part of this bet that would have struggled last season was the opposition batsman getting a century, with Pakistan and New Zealand struggling.

England have the batsman who are more than capable of getting a century though. Bairstow has opened 7 times in ODI's, and already has made 2 tons in that time.

Roy bounced back to form spectacularly in the last game.

Hales at 3 gives the top order even more firepower, if he gets going then he's difficult to stop.

Root at 4 can bat deep if early wickets fall, Morgan has a good record vs Australia, Buttler can score a ton even coming in with 15-20 overs to go and whilst Moeen has looked in wretched form with the bat he showed vs the Windies at Bristol that when he comes off he too can contribute big runs in a short space of time.

Given the strength of the Aussie top 3 and the depth of England's hitters i thought this was slightly over-priced. Both sides to make 300 in 9/4 and the century double comes out at 13/2 so I'm happy to have a small investment here at 7/1. Half stakes, as it's more a hunch than anything backed up by stats.
