Australia are out to 9/1 with bet365 to win the Ashes after they were beaten by 14 runs in a thrilling first Test at Trent Bridge.
In a topsy-turvy, sometimes controversial contest, it was England that eventually edged it, James Anderson taking his match tally to ten wickets by removing Brad Haddin in a nail-biting finale.
The hosts are now just 2/9 via Unibet to retain the urn while a 5-0, series whitewash for Alistair Cook’s troops is now 7/1 courtesy of Stan James.
Anderson’s ten wicket haul means he’s now 8/15 (Skybet) to be England’s best bowler and Coral rate Ian Bell at 5/2 to be his team’s top batsman following his second innings century in Nottingham.
The teams head to Lord’s now for the second Test, with Sportingbet offering even money about another England triumph and the Aussies 10/3 at William Hill to level the series at one-apiece.
Betrescue spokesman Chris Hutcheon said, “The first Test could’ve gone either way and both teams enjoyed spells when they were on top but the visitors’ creditable performance hasn’t persuaded punters that they can win the Ashes and the Baggy Greens have been friendless in the outright betting since Jimmy Anderson took that final wicket. Lord’s offers a different test to Trent Bridge but the feeling seems to be that the outcome will be the same.”
