Betting in cricket is very common and popular. We are not talking about spot-fixing or match-fixing but betting by cricket fans on the outcome of the games. We do not believe any of the major matches in any tournament around the world are fixed and spot-fixing seems to be very rare as well. How does betting work in cricket? It is quite simple and works much the way that other sports work.
How does betting work in cricket?
To bet on cricket, you need to:
- Make an account with 10Cric or another such trusted cricket betting website
- Deposit money into your betting account
- Choose a betting market, enter your stake, and confirm your bet.
There are a number of things that you can bet on in cricket. Let us take a T20 match between India and Australia as an example. You can bet on the winner, a popular option. You can also bet on the batsman who scores the maximum runs, the number of sixes/fours/wickets/wides/no-balls, man of the match, dot balls, and more.
Every single aspect of the game can be bet on. You can also bet on what is going to happen in a certain section of overs.
All of these bets are referred to as ‘betting markets'. Different bookmakers will provide you with the odds to bet on these markets. These odds will also continue to change as the match goes on and the circumstances change. In fact, the odds can change with every passing delivery.
You can see the odds available at the time you want to place a bet and then go ahead to lay your stake. If you win, you will get paid as soon as the bet is settled otherwise you will lose the amount you staked. It is very simple.
