The Ashes: Free Bets & Offers
England won the opening test match of the Ashes series last Sunday by just 14 runs and if you managed to use a free bet offer on this result then you’ll be one happy cricket betting fan!
After such an exciting 1st Ashes test the 2nd test got underway yesterday with England losing three late wickets to end the first day with a pretty average 289-7.
On the back of England’s success in the first test and their indifferent form in the second, you’ll now find online bookies offering some really competitive Ashes free bets, betting odds and promotions on England's performance in the 2nd Ashes test.
England's Ashes Odds
The best betting odds on England to win the 2nd Ashes test come from 888sport, who are offering them at 2/9 for the win. If you do plan to bet on England make sure you check out the new account offer from 888sport which is broken down into eight free bets and worth up to £88.
If you’re a cricket fan who plans to place a number of bets throughout the Ashes series then this is the bookie offer for you as it rewards you the more cricket bets that you place.
Australia's Ashes Odds
In terms of Australia, Bet365 offer the best odds on them winning the second test at 7/1. There’s also the Bet365 free bet offer which is worth £200 and could net you £1,400 in winnings if Australia do take advantage of England's poor start to the second test!
Best Odds on the Draw
The best odds on the draw are 8/1 at most bookies with our tip being PaddyPower.com as you'll be able to take advantage of an exclusive £100 free bet offer as well as their live-betting PaddyPower betting offer. Bet on a players 'runs' market in the Ashes and if your player's out LBW, PaddyPower offer to refund losing stakes on the market as a free bet!
England have stuck with the same squad as the first Ashes test and with James Anderson as man of the match who can blame them! Of course there were a few threats in the Australian team – namely Shane Warne and Glenn McGrath who were the heroes of the day and Ashton Agar who played up a storm in his debut game.
Bookies offer some really competitive odds and attractive betting promotions on the top English or top Australian batsman betting markets at the moment - especially for punters betting on either Alastair Cook or Michael Clarke who seem to be high on the list.
Another interesting Ashes betting market that bookies offer is 'series correct score' betting which can be a lucrative way of using free bet offers due to the high odds.
Whatever way you choose to use bookies free bets make sure you choose the best offer for your needs and keep and eye out for free Ashes bets in the cricket section on bookies websites.
