Cricket Betting Strategies 0

Posted on September 06, 2021 by Varun Kumar

Cricket is a popular team sport with a large fan base. Cricket is the world’s second most popular sport, after football. Cricket is a notoriously tough sport to grasp, with numerous variations in the regulations. Matches take place all year, and the betting options are nearly limitless. In many countries, cricket betting is a multibillion-dollar industry. When you place live cricket bets, you are very certainly also watching the game, whether at the stadium, on TV with friends, on the radio, or in some other way. Unfortunately, you probably don’t have access to your desktop or laptop at this time, so you’ll have to do your cricket betting on your phone or tablet. This is the ideal time to take use of cricket betting apps to increase your delight.

The popularity of cricket betting

We can claim that professional bettors are interested in cricket because of its national qualities. The line moves here not only because of many causes but also at the expense of the supporters. Fans from the United Kingdom, Australia, India, Pakistan, and other nations are influencing the outcome by betting on their preferred side. As a result, the odds on the bookmaker’s line don’t always reflect the substance of what’s going on the site.

Cricket bets must be placed based on a thorough comprehension of the sport as well as the ability to work with big amounts of data. You’ll need to know everything there is to know about the teams competing in the match, as well as the ancillary aspects such as weather and climatic conditions.

Different bets in cricket

  • Normally, bookies only accept bets on team victories, but a draw is possible in cricket. There are two sorts of draws: score-based and time-based. Almost all bookmakers do not accept bets on a tie, and if one occurs, they will refund all players who placed bets on a win.
  • Due to the small number of players in cricket competitions, you may examine the teams and place a wager on this market.
  • Bet on Batsman / Bowler of the Year; It is quite rare in cricket for one player to be significantly stronger than his colleagues; therefore, such a wager would be extremely dangerous.
  • For the best player in the match’s overall points. A wager on each player’s performance.
  • You can wager on the total number of wides or run-outs,
  • the total runs of a side’s first pair of batters, or which team will score the most runs or run-outs, among other things. It’s best to put such wagers only after you’ve thoroughly studied the game’s regulations.

There are many strategies for sports betting, especially cricket betting. Some of them are;

Posted on August 31, 2020 by John Harris

If you are an Indian sports bettor, one of the most vital decisions that you need to make is choosing a betting site. The site that you choose can determine whether your betting adventure will be smooth or rough.

With many established and upcoming IPL betting sites on the internet, getting a good one isn’t easy. On top of that, receiving adverts and promptings to place bets on their platforms can even be more confusing. Many of them can tempt you to place bets on their sites using attractive offers and bonuses. It’s, therefore, vital to know how to identify the best betting sites in India that can enable you to make money.

Here are things to consider before making a choice

  1. Offers and Bonuses

Some websites will give you a welcome bonus when you register, while others will provide you with the first deposit that you can use to place a bet.

How Will IPL Betting Change Because of Coronavirus? 0

Posted on April 02, 2020 by Suman Kabeer

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is packed with moments nobody expected, but perhaps never more so than right now. The spread of coronavirus, also referred to as COVID-19, has led to the suspension of the IPL until April 15, 2020.

In truth, many experts don’t believe the IPL will resume on that date, and that it will be pushed back even farther. Right now, we can’t predict when cricket will be back on our screens – but there are some things we can predict, like great betting opportunities!

Typically, it’s pretty easy to guess who will be the favourite and who will be the underdog in an IPL match. Pitch the Mumbai Indians against the Rajasthan Royals and it’s safe to say we know where the smart money goes.

However, could coronavirus lead to different patterns of betting in the IPL?

For one thing, we need to think about government policies. Different countries are employing radically different approaches to this new threat. Some countries, like Italy, have gone into full lockdown mode, trying to kill coronavirus by keeping people indoors as much as possible. Others are taking a different approach, with the introduction of herd immunity floated as one theory to help beat the virus.

  • Vintage Athlete of the Month

    • Drew Pearson: Mr. Clutch
      August 7, 2021 | 6:59 pm

      Drew Pearson

      The Sports Then and Now Vintage Athlete of the Month is a former NFL wide receiver know as “Mr. Clutch” for his penchant for making big receptions at crucial moments of the game. After waiting for more than 30 years, he is finally earning his rightful place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a member of the 2021 Hall of Fame Class.

      During his decade with the Dallas Cowboys, Drew Pearson had a habit of making the big catch at the right moment to help the Cowboys time and again snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.

      The favorite target of Hall of Fame quarterback Roger Staubach, Pearson was widely recognized as one of the great receivers of his era. Though at the time of his retirement many expected Pearson to easily breeze into the Hall of Fame, his enshrinement was derailed by changes to the game which artificially inflated receiver stats and made the numbers he produced during a time when wide receivers weren’t catching 100 passes a season seem inferior.
