T20 World Cup: Most popular markets

Several nations will travel to Abu Dhabi and Oman for the tournament – postponed for a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic – with a serious chance of lifting the trophy. India, with Virat Kohli in the line-up and several players hardened by extensive experience in the IPL, will be well fancied by T20 World Cup betting sites. They’re favourites but faltered in the knockout stages of both the 2015 and 2019 World Cups.

Champions in the 50-over format, Eoin Morgan’s England have developed an extremely impressive T20 squad and have shown the important ability to win from any situation, whether batting first or chasing. But Jofra Archer is out injured and much will depend on Ben Stokes’ availability.

After those two, it’s much of a muchness between Australia, the West Indies and New Zealand when it comes to outright odds. The sheer number of all-rounders that the Black Caps boast mean chasing down big totals shouldn’t be beyond them which makes us think there’s where the extra value is.

In-play betting on the T20 World Cup

If you want to bet on T20 online, you will have many opportunities before and during the tournament, even while games are underway. Modern sportsbooks have taken advantage of digital technology and update their odds immediately to reflect the shifting fortunes of a match.

That means they can keep trading with confidence and their customers can enjoy all the benefits of in-play betting.

For instance, if Australia lose two wickets in the first over of their opening match, you can still bet on them to win the game – and the tournament as a whole.

T20 World Cup betting tips

Try to find some value. Most sportsbooks have Australia at shorter odds than New Zealand, despite the likes of Aaron Finch (picked up by nobody in the IPL) and David Warner struggling for T20 form. The Black Caps, however, are blessed with great batting depth (as are England) and a balanced, lethal attack.

For wicket-takers think spinners, and don’t be put off by big run chases when betting in-play, especially given the hitters involved.

There are so many ways to get closer to the action when you visit T20 World Cup betting sites. Have a hunt around because there’s a wide variety of bets, including outrights on match and tournament winners and more complex markets such as over/unders and handicap betting.

You will also find a generous choice of offers to tempt new and existing bettors. Many sportsbooks use prominent events such as the T20 World Cup to acquire new customers. They will often offer a free bet, which is done by matching the stake of your first bet – or even multiplying it – and placing that amount in your account.
