Why England is a good bet at -149?

Although Australia did beat England, the English have bounced out of the loss with two straight wins. They took down the top seed in the Cricket World Cup final four, India, before beating fourth seed New Zealand.

The win over India was particularly impressive as they pushed India to 50 overs while scoring 337 runs. The win over India proves that England has what it takes to take down second seed Australia.

England vs Australia Cricket World Cup Final Betting Analysis:

Australia has played like World Cup winners, but things change in the semifinals. The Australians have used some luck to make it this far. Then again, when a team is on a roll, they’re hard to play against.

The real key lies with what’s happened recently with both teams. Australia lost their last match by 10 runs to South Africa. South Africa went 3-5 during World Cup play. They had no real shot to win the ICC Cricket WC. That’s a sign that Australia’s form might be heading south.

England’s form is on the upswing. The English followed up a win over India with a victory over New Zealand. India and New Zealand also made the World Cup final four. That means the English beat the two other semifinal teams to stamp their ticket to the Cricket WC semifinals.

Australia can win, no doubt, but Jonny Bairstow accounted for 111 runs against India. Versus New Zealand, Bairstow accounted for 106. With Bairstow playing well, England should gain revenge over Australia on Thursday.
