Ashes 3rd Test Betting Tips
England to win 3rd Test @ 5/6 (BetVictor)
England will have the feeling that they should have won the second Test at Lord’s. The issue was that they failed to take the final four Australian wickets left Australia needing 267 runs to win. After the tourists were reduced to 19 for 2 and 47 for three, the whole focus was on avoiding defeat. The partnership between Travis Head and Marnus Labuschagne delivered 85 run.
Labuschagne was able to score with 59 before Joe Root caught him and he is likely to replace Smith at Headingley which has been ruled out. Without Smith’s runs, Australia look an average team and it is not surprising that England are the favourite. England cannot afford to lose this Test and can be backed at 5/6 with BetVictor to secure a win in front of the boisterous crowd at Headingley. This will allow the home side to level with Australia before the two final Tests that are due to be played at Old Trafford and the Oval.
Top Three Betting Offers To Take Advantage Of In the Ashes Third Test
Jofra Archer top England bowler 1st innings @ 3/1 (William Hill)
Ben Stokes was the man of the match in the 2nd Ashes Test at Lord’s. He was unbeaten 115 in the second innings with England that looks settled to secure a win against Australia. Archer, however, should be considered after he was able to strike fear into the Aussie’s batting order with a magnificent display of fast bowling.
Surely Archer would have had bowled more than 44 overs in the match if the umpires didn’t deem the light to be too bad for Pat Cummins and Travis Head. Archer is at 3/1 with William Hill to be top England bowler. He was able to deliver a devastating debut in the Super Over to lead England to their first-ever World Cup success. Archer can expect top to be given the ball early at Headingley. Surely he will have learned a lot from his first-ever Test match and will use that to try and cause more trouble to Assie’s batting in Leeds.
Joe Root to score a first innings 50 @ 11/8 (William Hill)
Both sides batsmen have been disappointing for both teams. David Warner for Australia has scored a total of 18 runs while fellow opener Cameron Bancroft has managed 44 in four innings. England have had Jason Roy struggling to adapt from one day cricket to Test cricket and this was clear in his 40 runs. Many have also been surprised by the disappointing performance of England skipper Joe Root. Despite starting with a good 57 at Edgbaston he only delivered a 28, 14 and a duck in the second innings at Lord’s.
Probably playing an Ashes Test at his home ground should see the Yorkshireman performance improving. The move to number three in batting order might have well been the reason why Root’s runs have dried up. If we see the same pattern as in the first two Tests, Root should make his way pretty quickly as England’s struggles with the start of the innings are ongoing. Last time England opening partnership had 100 or more was in the fifth Test of their tour of India in 2016. Since then they have been very disappointing with 54 opening partnerships that have averaged just 22.7 runs. Only 8th partnerships have got over 50.
Root will need to be an example, and a half-century will grow England’s camp motivation. If he can turn into a century, the chances of England levelling the Ashes series will increase significantly.
