Ed Hawkins (@cricketbetting) says the Australia opener is a terrific price for the gong at Lord’s on Tuesday
<div><h2>England v Australia</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/int/world-cup/england-vs-australia-3738808/?mtid=6" target="_blank" title="England vs Australia Odds Board"><strong>10:30 AM - Tuesday 25<sup>th</sup>, June 2019</strong></a></p><p>England go into their crucial, not to mention mouthwatering, clash against the old enemy that is Australia with their reputation as the No 1 side in the world beginning to come under scrutiny.</p><p>A loss to Pakistan in their second game, when their bowling unit was, as expected, taken to the cleaners, could have been dismissed as a blip. But there is no way the defeat by Sri Lanka could be excused. It was a stunning implosion. World Cup winners do not lose to such a poor outfit.</p><p>The result is that Ladbrokes have made India favourites for the title. England have been pushed out to 2/1 (3.0) with Virat Kohli’s side shortened to 15/8 02.88). Now, it could be argued that India don’t look like winners either after they got out of jail against Afghanistan but the tide is turning against the hosts.</p><p>Perhaps the big movers are Australia, who are now 5/2 (3.5) with the firm. What price England if the Aussies down their rivals at Lord’s on Tuesday?</p><p>There is a lot of sense to the logic behind<a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/int/world-cup/england-vs-australia-3738808/?mtid=6" target="_blank"> betting Australia to win the match at 6/5 (2.2) with Betfred</a>. Australia have momentum and confidence. England don’t.</p><p>There are bigger prices to take advantage of, though. Chief among them is the 12/1 (13.0) that <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker">Bet365</a> offer about David Warner taking the man of the match award. With ton after ton, Warner appears to be in the form of his life.</p><p>He has put behind him the ball-tampering row, the possible negative reaction of his team-mates and, most importantly, a poor record against the moving ball in England, to dominate. The top tournament runscorer market is almost over with him at No 1.</p><p>We like the match gong price because, on career numbers, Warner has a 14 per cent chance of success. That’s closer to 6/1 territory so we’re getting double bubble. For England, Jofra Archer could come of age and we note his price of 14/1 (15.0) with <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Get in the game with Ladbrokes">Ladbrokes</a>.</p><p>Jason Roy, the England opener, is expected to miss the match with a hamstring tear keeping him on the sidelines. Roy’s absence means England could once again be a little bit unsure with the bat. They desperately miss his attacking intent.</p><p><strong>Best Tips for the Match:</strong></p><ul> <li>Back David Warner man of the match 12/1 Ladbrokes</li></ul></div>
