Anyone else been betting on this tournie? I've been trading quite a few bets on it at betfair, only for small stakes tho. Wish i'd have had the conviction to go at it a bit harder cos the swings in the odds seem completely overboard.
Biggest earners on tournie bets so far are:
£20 matched on Pakistan after England game @ 19's, now 9's
£10 Afridi leading wicket taker @ 35's, lay in queue at 6's
£100 Lay on Aussies @ 5's, Paid out
£150 on England @ 16's, now 10's
I've not traded any of these out yet, will wait before start of next round as these teams are all done til then.
Watching the England/ Holland game on betfair too it seemed that the odds on each team went out past evens after almost every ball! I didnt really fancy risking betting in play like that tho!
I reckon there are still some decent value bets going in to the next stage. I'm probably going to lay of big on South Africa, currently @ 3.9.
I know they have an immense batting line-up, but they are in a group of WIndies, England and India in the next stage, which will all be difficult games, and then they have to get through the semi's and final in games which can easily go either way. There odd's have come down a fair bit since they started the tournie and all they have done is beat Scotland. Also spin bowling seems to be a lot more effective on these wickets and a few of the other teams are far stronger in that department.
I also will keep an eye on the NZ odds, as I fancy laying them if ods fall much further. Again there odd's have plummeted after it looked like they would have an easy group in the next stage, but with Pakistan and Sri Lanka in there I think they are well worth a lay
