Here are four cricket betting tips that Adam Drury thinks you should consider for the first ODI between India and England in Pune on Tuesday.


India v England first ODI betting tips & odds

England to win

England go into this series with close to their full-strength ODI batting line-up and plenty of their frontline bowling options, too.

The world champions are well worth backing as underdogs.

Ben Stokes to score over 29.5 runs

Stokes played one innings of 46 in the T20 series that further proved his class, but he will still feel he needs a big series with the bat.

He hasn’t played an ODI since the 2019 World Cup final, but that event serves as a reminder of his brilliance in this format.

He has also played three ODIs in India and reached 50 in two of them.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar to take over 1.5 wickets

Kumar can be backed purely on form from the T20 series.

His 2-15 in Saturday’s decider was an outstanding effort, while he has been a constant menace with the new ball.

Adil Rashid to be England’s top wicket-taker

Rashid is always in the wickets, which gives him a good chance in this market.

He hasn’t gone wicketless in seven ODIs, earning us some profit in this market in three of them.
