Many cricket fans in the UK are going to be tuning into Sky Cricket for that is the TV sports channel that will be showing the England vs India 1st Test Series match, and will in fact be showing all other Test Matches too!
However, fans of that sport who also want to place a bet on who they think will win the match and a range of additional betting opportunities are also going to be making their way over to the BetFred betting site, for there are some very appealing odds on offer on all of their cricket related betting markets.
Take for example the outright winner betting market offer at Betfred on the 1st Test match between England and India, they are offering higher than average odds on the match ending in a draw for example and those odds are 8/1.
But due to the sheer volume of money currently being bet on England they are the very firm and solid favourite to win that match, but having said that you will certainly find the 10/11 odds Betfred are offering on England winning appealing.
You may however be of the mind that it is going to be India that will win that match, and if so then the sooner you place your bets the better, as that way you are going to be able to secure the high odds on offer on India winning and those odds if you are interested are 13/10
There are plenty of additional betting markets you can also make use of on this cricket match, and one you may find appealing due to the higher valued betting odds attached and associated with is the Top India Run Scorer in the 1st Innings.
As for some of the players that could score the most runs, consider backing the likes of Virat Kohli at 2/1 or backing Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul or Murali Vijay at 4/1 or consider placing a speculative bet that may just pay off big style and back the likes of Ajinkya Rahane at 11/2, or consider betting on Dinesh Karthik at 9/1!
Today’s Friendly Football Matches
Later on this evening you are going to be able to watch two friendly football matches, and they are also both matches that many of our featured betting sites are going to be offering you odds on.
The first of those friendly matches is the one in which Istanbul Buyuksehir Belediyespor will be taking on Bayer Leverkusen, and the match will be starting at half past five this evening, so if you do fancy placing bet on the outcome of that match you have plenty of time still left to do so.
As for the way that match will end, well the home team do look like the current underdogs and their win odds are 13/5, the draw may be appealing to some of you as the odds available are 16/5, but the away team look like they are soon going to be betting the upper hand in that match, and their win odds of 4/6 do very accurately indicate their chances of winning it too!
At 8pm tonight you are also going to watch the CESabadell v Girona friendly football match and from a betting point of view there is really only one way that match is going to end, and that is looking likely to be a win and quite a decisive one for the away team!
However, you can of course back on the draw or the home team to win if you prefer, and in fact by doing so you will be guaranteed of securing some above average odd son either of those two outcomes.
As for what the betting markets indicate on this match, well the home team are currently available quite readily at odds of 9/2, the draw is on offer at odds of 15/4 and the favourite who as I have already mentioned up above should win this match fairly easily are currently on offer at most betting site at odds of 4/11!
However, as is often the case with football matches like this one, if you do want to guarantee that the odds you will be getting are going to be the very highest ones available, I would urge you to check out the betting exchange on offer at Betfair.
By doing so you ate not only going to be able to bet on the draw or the team you will think will win, but you do also get the opportunity of laying odds yourself and take bets from other punters, so do consider doing just that for even more potential winning opportunities!
Evening Race Meeting at Epsom
As is always the case in August, the racecourse over at Epsom does hold a few evening meetings throughout the main summer months, and tonight they are holding one such meeting.
Whilst it is very true and fair to day that most punters will be concentrating their betting efforts on the Glorious Goodwood race meeting today, you should never overlook this race meeting for the bookies do tend to offer some fairly decent odds to get punter betting with them into the evening.
As far as just which horses are likely to perform well this evening, well in the very first race of the evening at Epsom racecourse tonight I do have to say that Iconic Belle has an outstanding chance of winning, especially when you look at the form of the other runners.
In the second race of the evening over at the Epsom racecourse, the top weight Never Surrender may just win at some fairly decent odds too.
The form of that horse is by no stretch of the imagination amazing, it does have plenty of racing experience and has also been improving in its last few starts, so do take a look at what odds are available, for you could be able to secure some fairly high ones if you do hunt and shop around.
