With both sides announcing their squads last week, the anticipation for the battle builds by the day.
Australian viewers will have to lose sleep to watch the action in the UK, with match days commencing around 8pm AEST and running until 3am.
England vs Australia top runscorer odds
Jonny Bairstow – $6.50 at Sportsbet
What Bairstow showed during the 2019 Cricket World Cup was nothing short of brilliant. The versatile Yorkshireman hit the ball around the ground, targeting weaker bowlers and patiently building his innings. Set to play in the middle order, he won’t be fazed by the likes of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins.
David Warner – $4 at Ladbrokes
The opening batsmen are often the best bets in the leading runscorer markets, and Warner is always a good chance to top the pops. The hard-hitting lefty regained plenty of respect with his performances at the recent ICC World Cup, but a big Ashes knock against the English is the only way to truly win over the Aussie public.
England vs Australia top wicket-taker betting
Stuart Broad – $4.33 at Sportsbet
Broad did not feature in England’s successful Cricket World Cup campaign, but he is expected to play a significant part with the red ball this summer. The 33-year-old seamer is coming off a four-wicket haul against the Irish that will have boosted his confidence tremendously.
Josh Hazlewood – $4.33 at Bet365
Hazlewood was filthy to miss out on Australia’s ICC World Cup squad and will want to shove it up the selectors with a big Ashes series. The Tamworth lad’s Test record over the last year or so is not too flash, but his unerring accuracy makes him a dangerous customer when there is a bit of movement in the wicket.
Ashes 2019 – First Test betting predictions
England will be on its home deck with all the confidence in the world after winning the Cricket World Cup. Jofra Archer will make his Test debut and should be a key component to the England side. The Aussies will fight hard but won’t make enough runs.
