What Are the Typical Offers Available for Betting on Cricket?

Cricket is one of the sports which bookmakers don’t have so many offers available for. You have to keep a watchful eye to spot them when they do appear.

They are more common for higher profile cricket competitions. You are more likely to see them for T20 than you are county cricket.

Based on the offer in 2017, there are two types.

1) Get money back on losing bets

This is the most common. Receive money back on losing bets when a certain condition is met. For example, Paddy Power offered money back in the ICC Champions Trophy this summer. When your backed team scored 300 runs, but failed to win the match, losing bets would be refunded.

Unibet ran offers this year for both the T20 Blast and the ICC Champions Trophy. For the for former, Unibet issued money back if your backed batsman wasn’t the top batsman, but did achieve the second highest score.

For the ICC Champions Trophy, they gave money back on losing bets when a player was ran out.

2) Get bonuses on your winnings

Both Betfred and Totesport in the past have run offers providing extra winnings on cricket bets on certain conditions.

For the ICC Champions Trophy this year, they gave double odds if your backed top batsman scored a century.


What Are the Best Betting Sites for Betting on Cricket?

Less choice of betting offers for cricket makes personal preference more important.

Use the offers when available, and consider other factors when not.

There are a couple of bookmakers that have loyalty bonuses which include cricket. If you bet £10 five times weekly with Paddy Power, you will receive a £10 free bet. Winner has a similar promotion, but not as strong. Full details on both are found in this loyalty bonus article.

All bookmakers featured on My Betting Sites have cricket markets and leading odds.
