Australia Pile On Pressure

Live on Skysports 1: Sat 23.30: With the momentum firmly with Australia, the hosts have to be fancied at 6/4 (Coral) to win the 4th Test.

In warmer conditions Down Under, England have drifted to 2/1 (Betdaq) to win the Ashes after Australia (13/8, bet365) levelled the series with a convincing victory in Perth.

The Fourth Test gets under way in Melbourne in the early hours of Sunday and again it’s the hosts, buoyed by their success at the WACA, that are slight favourites at 6/4 with Betfred. The tourists are quoted by Partybets at 9/5 to retain the urn by taking a 2-1 into the final showdown in Sydney and Sportingbet post 12/5 against the draw.

Momentum could be with the ‘Baggy Greens’ after their Third Test success and with their bowling attack now revitalised, they’ll be hard to stop, especially infront of over 90,000 festive Australians.

Mitchell Johnson took a total of nine wickets in Perth and looks decent value at 5/2 (Coral) to be Australia’s top wicket taker at the MCG while Graeme Swann is 11/4 (Stan James) to be England’s best bowler. The pitch will not be as fast and lively as Perth and the MCG groundskeeper, Cameron Hodgkins, has guaranteed a slower strip. The seamers and spinners could come into play therefore.

With the bat for Andrew Strauss’ side, in-form Ian Bell could be moved up the order to number 5 and he’s overpriced at 6/1 with bet365 to score the most runs for England.
