The Sri Lankan cricket team was humiliated in the recently concluded five One Day Internationals away series against India and will be facing England at home in seven limited over games. England got a stick at home from the visiting Men in Blue who conquered the five ODI series at 3-1 and will anticipate better results in the forthcoming matches against the Islanders. Two teams have faced each other 56 times and each one of them has attained a fifty percent result so far. The Lankan Lions were at the driving seat on their last trip to England where they grabbed the five ODI series at 3-2 and will try to win against the visitors again.

Mahela Jayawardene and Tillakaratne Dilshan were among runs whereas Kumar Sangakkara, Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Perera and Dinesh Chandimal will form a strong batting line-up. Their bowling department will revolve around Thisara Perera, Seekkuge Prasanna, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara and Jeevan Mendis.

Joe Root, Alastair Cook, Jos Buttler, Moeen Ali, Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan were the main scorers against India last summer while Ian Bell and Ravi Bopara are capable of playing big innings. James Anderson, Steven Finn, Chris Jordan, Chris Woakes, James Tredwell and James Taylor are dependable bowlers for the visitors.

      Its best for online betting all games

  4. Hey mate, I've been following you for quite sometimes and amazed how you manage to make profit in every match. I've tried hard but can't sustain long term profit no matter which strategy I follow. Mind sharing some of the secrets with us unfortunate ones? I'm sure that you keep the most important secrets with yourself and publish only the hints.


  5. munnabhai is series me profit mangta hai, apun loss me ja riya hai. help karo. series betting ka kuch batao

    • SL follow 7 odi
      U will be +

  6. Bet on england
    England will win
    Sri lanka will be fav
    Ul will get nice rate for england

    3 -2
  7. England per lagao puri series me. Agar ek bhi match jeeta England to profit me rahoge. SL ka bhav 1 Rs se kam rahega hamesha to profit ka chance nahi hai. Agar haar gaye to agle match me double kar do. Jaise hi eng jeeta profit le ke nikal lo fir aage mat lagana is series me. Kewal ek profit banane ka ek series me.

  8. Guys calm down. I'm going to impart some more wisdom of Cricket betting.

    There are two man strategies to follow in a Cricket series and it work with local bookies or online bookmakers.

    The first one is backing the favourite and second one is backing the underdog. Both have their own pros and cons.

    Cricket series are more or less predictable up to some extent. Home team is always the favourite unless a visitor is way above them such as SA visiting Zimbabwe or India visiting Bangladesh.

    When home team is favourite and visitors are not in good form then who do you back? Home team or visitors? Obvious answer is to back home team. And this exactly what I explained on my blog post.

    Even though both Sri Lanka and England have been humiliated by our blues Brothers, Sri Lankans are favourite thanks to them being the host.

    England are not a 3rd tier team, they always have habit of nicking few matches in any series anywhere in the world. They might not have a strong team unit but they always carry few match winning players. It's their history. England were never a strong team unit but always relied on brilliance of few individuals.

    Combing back to original question, who to back in the series. Let's do some math. Let's assume England will nick at least 2 matches in the series.

    Let's say SL odds will be around 1.57 which is 0.57 profit per match. 5 match winnings will give us 2.75 profit and 2 losses will give us -2 and we will make 0.75 profit backing Sri Lanka in the series.

    Let's see other side, England's odds are 2.37, 2 winnings will give us 4.74 and 5 losses will give us -5 which comes out to be a loss of 0.26.

    So if you back underdogs England with 1.37 bhav per match then it might be losing strategy. You can make profit backing England only if England are expected to win 3 out of 7 ODI matches. Ask yourself this question, can England win 3 ODI matches in Sri Lanka when they were thrashed by India in their own backyard?

    Answer is no. England are not likely to snatch 3 victories out of Sri Lanka.

    This leaves us with only one strategy and that is backing favourite i.e. Sri Lanka. This is safer strategy.

    There are punters who swear by their strategy for backing underdog but this strategy doesn't work in Cricket where one team is always clearly the favourite which happens in over 90% of Cricket matches.

    Backing underdog can be more effective in Football but certainly not in Cricket.

    There is another strategy - Doguna which I've explained on my blog

    In this strategy you pic a team whose odds are always going to be over 2.0. Keep backing that team by doubling your stake after every loss and as soon as this team wins you make profit. Take that profit and disappear. Don't continue betting again in the same series. There is huge risk in this strategy, if underdogs don't win then you will end up with huge loss and there is no way to recover such huge loss.

    That is why I never recommend beginners to take this route. I always recommend low risk strategy.

    There is another variant of backing Sri Lanka in this series. If you can ensure that you always back Sri Lanka at odds more than evens (2.0) then even if Sri Lanka wins only 4 matches you will be in profit.

    So how to get Sri Lanka's odds of more than 2.0? BetfairBetfair my friends. I've been telling you all along. Get account there and start making profit.

    • bhai, how to deposit on betfair using nettler account ??? plsss help me

      • NETELLER is not good, try Skrill. Did you read my guide?

        • it`s not able click gambling !!!! maybe my country fking law !!! can i deposit using neteller ??

      • any other deposit method pls teach me !!!! help

    • bhai, smal confusion !! If England bat first i have to start backing with them or srilanka

      • Wait and see how Captain Cook and Ali start the inning. If they are going solid then back England first and if all goes good then cashout at interval. Risk will be if they collapse. If it looks risky then wait for the interval and then start trading on SL. They have good batsmen till 6th wicket down so you will have plenty of time to greenup. Don't take trade towards the last 10 overs.

  9. I did some research on the past records at this ground and conclusion is, as usual, first innings score. A score of 300+ will be difficult to chase. SL chasing have more chances of winning the match than England. England can be fav only when they make 340+ score. They are not known for chasing down runs. England will fail to chase 280+.

    SL is favourite to win. Follow series betting.

    • bhai, i`m facing problem on opening betfair show " You already have an account one person one account can use !!!"........but i dn`t have any account and my friend also facing same problem pls gve some solution !!!

      • ....

    • On spot! one down. Match followed my script. As predicted England almost got away thanks to our colonial cousins. Looks like England are going to be be two men team - Ali and Bopara. Butler and Bell might shine on few occasions. I doubt Captain Cook's capability to contribute significantly on desi pitches. Lankan bowlers are looking slightly improved, fielding is still a concern.

      And guess what they are playing during the receding monsoon. Rain might ruin few matches or delay them or or get screwed under D/L.

    • who will win the game.

  10. bhai, pls help me this time skrill account it`s not able click gambling !!!! maybe my country fking law !!! can i deposit using neteller to betfair ??

            ( more information ask our king
            Munna Bhai )

            • Tx mate! That's new information to me as well. I'll put it into my guide. And be careful in posting such information on the net. We have very limited avenues available for eWallet and if Indian banks find it out then they will close those routes. Never mention bank names in online forums or comments. This is the reason I'm not posting the guide online on my personal blog.

      • bhai, pls explain about……..when we lay it`s shows–>>> (Payout, Liability) why we have to click the options ??
        second qus : if they offer 1.72 for man utd in back bet !!! if we change the odd to 2.10 and place the bet what could be the result !!! 3rd qus : if lay bet empty & we lay some odd if no backer than what will happen !!!

        • This post will help you to understand lay betting.
          Bookmark that blog.
          Regarding your query for placing bet on higher odds - This is called unmatched bets. When you place back bet on higher odds than the current odds it is put into the queue and called unmatched bet. Don't forget to select the option to Keep the bet when event starts. When event starts (goes in play) and odds increase and hit 2.10 your bet will be matched provided there is money available on the lay side. If Man U wins you will earn profit of 1.10 (2.10 - 1) for odds of 2.10.

          If lay bet is empty then it means market is not active yet. You can place bet but it will remain unmatched. In such case you should wait when event is about to start as you don't know what the odds going to be. Don't bet much in advance unless you are sure that odds are correct. 1.01 odds are not actual odds but dummy ones or it shows when event has concluded etc..

          • it`s really helpful and thank you so much !!!

    • Google search for Tatkal scheme, you will find a way out of it. If they have so much requirements then why it's called Tatkal scheme? If you have your DL then it might also work on bookie sites.
      Once you have your account ready I'll guide you on how to make money. Chill out till then. Don't waste your money with local bookies.

  17. Flat wicket SL will make runs but eng will score low in confusion to save wicket

  18. If Eng batting then runs will be 250/260, easy for chase down for Sri.
    If Sri Batting first then runs will be around 300, Eng isn't capable to chase it down.
    Guys Srilanka is fav.

  19. Bet on england
    Sanga and malinga not playing
    England have good players
    Moin Ali Morgan root bopara hales cook

    • Ok shetty bhi..i trust u

  20. Though Srilanka lost their last series against India but this time they will give no chance to the English player. In their home ground they can easily win it and make it 1-0.

  21. England will win
