I think England, NZ and even WI could have a great day against Ind, Aus or SA ( Jew factor, Batting first on a wearing pitch, chasing on  a great batting pitch ). Bets on the favourites are always tempered as FREE money is a commodity limited to the filthy rich.

Foinavon, NZ's problem is they don't have a decent spinner, and I can't see a team without at least one getting to the semis when the games in lowland India start. My outsiders would be England, Windies and Banglas.

Just hoping for a run for my money pxb, could be a back to lay. Only small beer compared to what I would outlay on a test and not advising anyone to follow suit. England looks somewhat short but Windies are my kind of price.

Badree is very good, which is the reason a give WI a chance at the semis. Plus their batting of course.

Banglas are 40. They need to win their qualifying group first, but they are very short priced to do so.

If as expected we get spin friendly dry pitches then subcontinent teams could do rather better than some expect and conversely Aus, SAf, Eng and NZ could struggle. Not a prediction, but something to consider.

If Banglas don't burn out from the number of matches they have played, I quite fancy them to do well.

Pak's price is mainly to due to the ongoing security problems. Have they arrived in India yet?
They could pull out at any time and who knows how Bfair treat that!
I think they have only played a few games in India in the last 20 years in any format.
Pak's batting has reached an all time low but the bowling is still strong and I expect them to roll over a side or two.

SL have really surprised me. I saw a few acorns in the batting dept in NZ but they seem to have disappeared. Also, they don't seem to have any top class spinners.
Herath is more of a test bowler, Dishan is the standard batsman who bowls a bit of filth & Senanyake like most has been neutralised by a change of action. He just rolls the ball out now & has hardly any variation.

Bangla's batting is their problem at the moment. Their two best batsmen are massively out of form, Shakib & Mushfiqur.

India are the stand out team by a distance imo. All bases covered for all pitches. 90% of the players are in form & at home they will be formidable.

Yeh England have Rashid & Ali v Zampa & Maxwell.
My only concern with Rashid is that I think his leg spin/googlies are much more effective in Aus.
He was getting bounce and fast spin.
How quickly will he find the correct length and speed?? And even if he does that will be effective? He thrived in Aus on those wickets, we shall see how he fares in India.
IF he bowls well I think England are second favourites as the seam bowling isn't that strong in this comp. Eng, NZ, SA & Aus haven't got the firepower of yesteryear. Spin and changes of pace from the seamers will probably be the key.
The much vaunted "deep batting lineup"Cry has got to start to fire. Stokes, Morgan, Buttler & Ali in the middle order can't keep throwing their wickets away.
England really need to top the group or they will probably face India.
I don't like Aus at 6s at all. Their bowling looks weaker than usual.
I'm surprised they haven't taken Lyon as he has become a top spin bowler. He's a decent fielder too and not the worst number 11.
All the Aus batsmen play with hard hands & they are going to need time to adjust to the slow turning conditions. They have been playing in Aus, NZ & SA recently and that could be a problem. Maybe worth backing against them in the first game.
SA like NZ have a lot of lefties who play spin poorly. Miller, Roussow, Berhardien (RH but still sh1t!) & Duminy are very iffy against spin.
Also AB is not in great nick & Steyn is coming back from injury.
NZ have no spin to talk about  & Southee/Boult have been pretty poor now for quite a while. Henry & Milne look more threatening imo. Santner's bowling is real buffet stuff but they seem to favour him over Sodhi.

To a lot of Indians, just the thought of Pak playing in India is incendiary, imagine if Pak dared to win, there would be chaos.

I am not sure if you are serious about saying that or just joking. But I can assure you, all India Pak games at the world cups are a drama. And you cannot even imagine beating India in India. That is simply not possible. Not in World Cups I mean. Otherwise Pak has a great record in India and they even won the last ODI series they played there.(Exactly the reason why India doesn't want Pak v Ind in India)

Anyone remember the 2011 WC and the four dropped catches? I remember Younis Khan had a tough time trying to make his drop look genuine :D That was a mighty fix at government level and Afridi was given a proper shutup call by PCB after he opened his mouth on TV. he was fined and his NOC to play county was revoked. Remember, Afridi was the highest wicket taker at the world cup yet he was fined and removed from the team! All because he got angry at a reporters question and its hard to to keep him quiet.

Just for your info, the current Pak PM is into cricket as well(making money through it). Its the same guy who made the team lose to Bangladesh in 1999(was PM then as well). My guess is, they are not getting the desired amount of money in return, thus threatening a pullout. Its not gonna happen though, there is too much money to lose for Pakistan if they pull out. And money is what matters here, neither cricket nor security. My guess is we are gonna hear the good news tonight.

Don't really buy that the two sides that are about to slug out an effective quarter final should be first and fourth favourites of the five remaining but I'm not sure I'm sold enough on the WI to lay both hard. 

Hmm, Aus slipped to 5th of 5 while cogitating on it but still both seem very short.  If you go on the tournament so far, surely WI have outperformed England and NZ been the best by a street so it can't make sense to have WI a very clear underdog against either India or Aus and NZ only moderately favoured against England.  Course, that's not the only way of judging it but don't see India or Australia's overall merits as clear enough either.

so india take up all of the australian slack and the other 3 drift a tick and you have 100% book aslong as india dont go as short as 2.34...  anything bigger than 2.34... and the other 3 take up the rest of the slack so possibly very similar to what they are know...  maybe the windies drift with the upcoming semi but eng / nz stay very similar.

but if australia beat the indians, or even look like getting on top....then all four teams i think will shorten to various degree's.     

aus 3.0
nz  4.0
eng 4.5
wi  5.0.....ish.   Id prob have the windies / nz a little shorter with the upcoming semi's, form so far... but again...all shorten. 100%

Cant work out this market.

How do you guys price up both india and aus winning please??

My analysis is. India with 3 matches to win is too short at 4.1, which drags Aus too short, which makes the other three value.
Report YOMOMMA March 27, 2016 9:32 AM BST
too big disparity between match odds ind v aus and on the outright. india should be 4.5.
Report lanza March 27, 2016 7:04 PM BST

india 2.30
nz    4.60

England look a nice price. Why outsiders? they can EASILY turn over NZ

Lanza was spot on with the India price. Well done sir.

Yesterday's over 1.8 will be the last good price we see on India. Currently 1.46 to beat WI. A bit short IMO if Gayle plays, but not by much.

At the semi final stage, if the top 4 get through I would price as follows: This is based on Eng v India & SA v AusIndia - 2.40SA    - 4.25Aus   - 5.00Engl  - 6.50I can't see past India to be honest. If they are playing SA/Eng at the Feroz Kotla they will probably prepare a dust bowl. Guess who wins that contest?Then the same in the final and the same result.Look at the Test tracks they have been preparing in recent times against Aus/SA. Absolute snake pits. Ravi Shastri has orchestrated this after being sick of losing 3/4-0 in Aus/Eng/SA on seaming decks.They have shied away from the boring flat tracks with sponsors in mind, to bunsens, with the M.O. to make India a fortress again.They have two perfect spinners for home conditions & now they have some swing/seam that has settled into a good groove. Nehra is swinging it, Bhumra is unorthodox & Pandya is bowling some good aggressive stuff as the 5th bowler. If any of them are take apart then there is a bit of filth from Yuvraj & Raina.SA, Eng & SA cannot beat India on turning tracks. Not sure they can beat them on any tracks tbf. India even outgunned Aus in Aus a few months ago in T20s. With the other subcontinental sides appearing weaker than usual in the spin & batting depts there is no real opposition to India on slow turners in home conditions.


Not far off, just the wrong teams!

I feel only a Gayle special can derail India from here.

West Indies 9/1(no bowlers but lots of firepower)in the final

Foinavon, NZ's problem is they don't have a decent spinner, and I can't see a team without at least one getting to the semis when the games in lowland India start. My outsiders would be England, Windies and Banglas.


That was a good call pxb. Two of your three outsiders contesting the final.
West Indies were, I think, priced around 12 at the time.

Foinavon, I was keen on WI pre-tournament, but got spooked when some top players pulled out and their price went from 8 to as high as 15 I recall. Made decent money on the Winner market, but could have made more had I stuck to my guns.
