CRICKET BETTING: Ahead of the start of the English County Championship season, Durham are once again tipped to triumph in Division 1; they are 2/1 with Totesport to make it a hat-trick of titles.
Hampshire are deemed to be the nearest challengers at 5/1 with 888Sport. Nottinghamshire will once again look to seriously compete and turn two consecutive 2nd places into a shock win, aided by the signings of Hashim Amla and experienced first class player David Hussey. They can be backed at 6/1 with Totesport
In Division 2, it’s a tight call between Sussex and Surrey. Sussex are 5/2 with Betfred and Surrey also 5/2 with Stan James.
Middlesex lead the chasing pack (13/2 with Bet365) but Northamptonshire, who only missed out on promotion last season by a single point, help prop up the field at 16/1 with William Hill, though this probably reflects the loss of Monty Panesar.
