Match Betting

This is a straightforward bet, because you only have to pick from three different outcomes.

Bet between: Away team win, Tie (draw) or Home team win

Completed Match

For one-day matches, you can place a bet on if you think the game will be finished that day or not. If you believe that the weather or some other outside factor could impact the game finishing that day, then you might place a bet that the match will not be completed. For this wager, you’ll merely bet yes or no if the game will be finished on the day that it is officially scheduled.

Tied Match

Another straightforward Cricket match bet is the tied match wager. For this wager, you’ll merely bet yes or no if you think the match will end in a tie. If you select correctly, then you’ll win your bet.

Innings Runs

For this wager, you try to predict the number of runs that will be scored in the first innings of the match. This is a over/under wager. Here, we will post a specific number of runs and then you’ll wager if you think the actual amount of runs scored will be over or under the number displayed in the bet line.

Top Bowler

If you’re looking to wager on some specific players, you might consider a top bowler bet. Here, you’ll select the player you believe will take the most wickets during a match or series. It’s up to you to decide which player from either team will earn this title. If you’re able to pick correctly, you’ll be rewarded with a nice payout.

Top Batsman

Another player specific wager is the top batsman bet. For this wager, you must select which player that you think will score the most goals during a match or series. You can pick from any player on either team. Since this wager is more difficult to predict than just picking which team will win correctly, it often has higher associated payouts if you’re able to get it right.

Team of Top Batsman

If you don’t want to pick the exact player that will be the top batsman, you have another option that makes it a little easier to get it right. With the team of top batsman bet, you just have to decide which team you think the top batsman will come from. Since you only have two options to select from here, your odds of winning this bet are much higher than correctly picking the top batsman himself.

Bowler Match Bets

If you’re looking for an easier version of the top bowler wager, check out the bowler match bets. With these wagers, you’ll just have to pick one of two players. You’ll be deciding which of those two players will take the most wickets in the match or series.

Batsman Match Bets

Just like the bowler match bet, batsman match bets make it easier to take part in the top batsman wagers. Here, you’ll be given two players to choose from. Just select the player you think will score the most runs during the game to place this type of wager.

Tournament Outright Winner

If you’re looking to wager on a Cricket tournament, one of the wagers that you can place is on the outright winner of that tournament. Here, you must select which team you think will rise above all the others to win the tournament. When you go to place the wager, MyBookie will list the associated lines for all the teams in the tournament. Just select the team you think will win it all and hope for the best.

Series Winner

If you’re new to watching or betting on Cricket, you might not know that it is very common for two teams to enter a series of matches. Instead of just playing one game, they’ll often play multiple games in a row. With a series winner wager, you’ll be picking which of the two teams you think will come out on top at the end of the series of matches. Don’t forget that you’re choosing the winner for the entire series as opposed to just one of the individual matches.

Over/Under Score

Another favorite version of a Cricket wager is the over/under bet. MyBookie Sportsbook will post a total score that we think the team will have by the end of a match or series. Your job is to decide if you believe that the team’s actual score will come in over or under that number posted by us.

Series Score

Another way that you can bet on a Cricket series is to wager on the score of the series. Here, you’ll bet on what the final overall score of the series will be. The options will be around how many matches each team will win in the series. Just pick the one you think will be the result and wait to see if you selected correctly.

Method of Dismissal

If you’re into live betting on Cricket, check out the method of dismissal wager. With this bet, you’ll decide how a batsman in the crease will end up being dismissed. Most often, you’ll be able to select from the following potential outcomes: caught, bowled, run out, LBW, stumped, or other. All that you have to do it pick the one you think is how that player will be dismissed and then hope that you selected correctly!

Win Toss

For a Cricket wager that isn’t really tied to performing any actual team or player, check out the win toss bet. Here, you’ll just be picking which of the two teams you think will win the coin toss at the start of the match. This can be a fun way to bet on a coin flip, literally.

Toss Combination

If the win toss wager above sounds attractive to you, then you might also enjoy placing a toss combination bet. For this wager, you’ll start by picking which team you think will win the coin toss. However, there is a second component that you also must decide. Once you’ve selected the team, you think will win the toss, you also have to decide if you think they will opt to bowl or bat first. To win this bet, you must pick both parts of the combination correctly.

Odd/Even Runs

For this type of Cricket wager, you’ll decide if you think a team’s runs for a match will either be an odd or even number. We consider a score of 0 being an even number for this bet. With only two potential outcomes for this wager.

Most Run Outs

Another uncomplicated Cricket wager is the most runs out bet. Here, you’ll just need to decide which of the two teams will have the most runs out in a match or series.

Man of the Match/Player of the Series

It’s common in Cricket for a single player to be tapped as the Man of the Match or the Player of a Series.

With these two bets, you can select which player you think will earn the title. Mostly, these wagers are only available in major markets so you might not come across these if you’re betting on smaller market Cricket matches.
