Casino News: Australian Odd to Hit Another Century is 500/1

Australian Odd to Hit Another Century is 500/1

 January 18, 2007, 10:56 am (12 years ago)

At present this doesn’t seem too outlandish a possibility, as England slumped to a humiliating 5-0 whitewash with a 10 wicket defeat in the final test in Sydney. William Hill has already quoted England at 14/1 to lose the next Ashes Series by the same 5-0 score line, following the trend of punters taking advantage of the 6/1 offered pre-series on a whitewash this time around.

The opening batsmen of the Australian cricket team have become accustomed to hitting centuries against their English counterparts, but William Hill has made them 500/1 to achieve a century of a different kind; to hold on to the Ashes urn for the next 100 years.

However, the stand-out bet must surely be the 500/1 against England ever winning back the Ashes over the course of the next 100 years.

In all some £5 million was gambled on the Ashes Series which was down on the 2005 series, “partly because of the time difference for English punters and partly because the writing was on the wall literally from the very first ball of the series,” added Sharpe.

William Hill spokesperson Graham Sharpe explained, “England have been so abject in defending the Ashes which took them so long to acquire that we are now betting that they won't hold them again in this century - and are offering 500/1 about them failing to regain them until 2100 at the earliest.”
