The Ashes 2015: Australia short odds to beat England

I know we’re talking the Aussies up, but let’s face it – England are ripe for the picking, and online bookmaker is offering punters the chance to back Michael Clarke’s side to break some long standing Ashes records, like $17 for someone to take more than Brad Haddin’s 29 catches in a series.

It’ll be hard for even Steve Smith to outdo Sir Donald Bradman’s 974 runs in a series which is priced at $276, but for the same price you can bet on a team (presumably Australia) to beat England’s record of 903 runs in one innings.

At $41, Dave Warner wouldn’t have to bat too long to eclipse Len Hutton’s 364 runs in a single innings, and the legendary Bradman/Ponsford stand of 451 could be in danger of being smashed ($151) if he gets going with any one of our top 7.

“90% of money placed on the series winner has gone on Australia and a 5-0 scoreline is the second most popular option. Several records could fall by the wayside if punters have got it right,” said’s Christian Jantzen.
