Where to use your free ICC Champions Trophy bet
The winning team will be what attracts most betting at the ICC Champions Trophy and as ever in tournaments only involving eight teams there is often little to separate the teams in the odds. The likes of India and South Africa will often commend some of the shortest odds in limited overs competitions and New Zealand and West Indies will be nearer the foot of the list, but any team is capable of lifting the trophy as has been proved in the past.
With the nature of the two group stages there is also plenty of opportunity to have a flutter on who is to be the winner of each group and who is to be the team qualifying in second. As mentioned every team is genuinely capable of beating any other in the Champions Trophy so there is plenty of money to be made on the qualifying or not qualifying markets.
The top batsman and bowler markets are also always an interesting topic of debate amongst the cricketing fraternity, they are often tricky to predict and can be considerably affected by just one performance. A big century or a demolition of a tail and someone can be shot from outsider to favourite in either of these markets in no time at all.
Thanks to the rise of Twenty20 the scoring is now quicker than ever and there are opportunities to profit from this by backing the batsman who scores the quickest half-century or hundred in the tournament. With stars of the international scene like Virat Kohli, David Warner and AB de Villiers all on show in the Champions Trophy there are plenty who look tempting to back with a free bet.
