Here are four cricket betting tips that Adam Drury thinks you should consider for the third Ashes Test, starting on Boxing Day.


Marnus Labuschagne to score a first-innings 50

Labuschagne’s astonishing record continued in the second Test, with a score of 103 meaning he has passed 50 in 11 of his last 14 first-innings knocks.

The three exceptions on that run are 48, 47 and 48.

Steve Smith to score a first-innings 50

There’s every chance of both of these bets landing, but it would be a surprise if neither did.

Smith scored 93 at Adelaide, meaning he has made 50 in 10 of his last 12 first innings against England.

Mitchell Starc to be Australia’s top first-innings wicket-taker

Starc bowled as well as he has done in Test cricket for a while at Adelaide, taking six wickets in the match.

He is the joint-top wicket-taker in the series so far and took three first-innings wickets during the Boxing Day Test at the MCG last year.

Ollie Robinson to be England’s top first-innings wicket-taker

Robinson can be relied upon to be in the wickets, so is a solid shout in this market.

He took three in the first innings in the first Test at Brisbane and three more across the match at Adelaide.
