A result venue, which can produce big first innings scores. Although the last Ashes Test here was fairly low scoring with both side seamers doing well. Must be Lyon's fav ground. He always gets wickets.

Some rain forecast last 2 days.  A back draw to lay. If Aus win the toss, we may see Eng batted out of the match by day 2. Anderson and Broad not the bowlers they were 3 years ago.

I have not been betting just watching but I have laid 100/245 England as I would give 250 for an England win and will cop the compensation if we only draw........ It would need to be a monumental Aussie collapse for England to win and I just can't see it in the time available.........

Good advice that. I'm more or less level now with a slight bias on Eng, which I'll drip more onto if the odds drift out quickly again.
