Just laid England at 1.65

They were around 1.95 before the first test so are they now that much better?  I think this is a big over-reaction to 2 hours of mayhem yesterday when Broad blew NZ away for just 68Cool  The thing is England were supposed to win the match so it wasnt exactly a shock result.  They were expected to be the better side in the match but after 3 days the match was even.  At the start of day 4 then you would have said England should be higher odds to win the 2nd test than the first based on the first 3 days.

Stuart Broad is a 'hot and cold' bowler and yesterday he was red hot.  The odds for the 2nd test seem to imply that he is going to be red hot in the 2nd test also but this cannot be relied on.  Also England are now 1-0 up to a 2 test series.  This means they only need a draw to win the series.  Im not suggesting Cook wont be trying to win but he is less likely to take as many risks i.e. scoring fast runs and making risky declarations to set up a win than if the score was 0-0.

the reason for it is simple - the umpires think that there were just two wickets to go - you can guarantee if NZ were just 3 wickets down, they would not be out there

I was 3k all green at 7.30am this morning after backing the draw again last night and looking at 5 if it had been a draw. I escaped with just over half this mornings green but have learned so much today.
Sky news weather about 8am this morning screwed it, the draw went from 1.6 to almost evens in a breath whilst I was making breakfast and not really concentrating.
It was a day long battle from then on, trying to get it back and getting it wrong as I just didnt realise how bad the panic gets when the market goes tits up and I missed too many breaks

Thats me done until the Ashes.......noticed the market for the first test is up and running!
