The Indian Premier League is underway, into its 4th season, growing every year and as a betting market its potential has never been better. This lucrative competition attracts only the biggest and best names from the world of cricket and online bookmakers are in a big hurry to make sure these big fixtures translate into bets and profit.
888sport is no exception and this particular online bookmaker provides a variety of markets to bet on for every single match as well as taking bets for the outright Indian Premier League winner, which after just 1 game is the Mumbai Indians at 9/2.
With an increasing following not only from India but worldwide, as the passion of the Indian nation captures the imagination of the world, 888sport gives odds on every aspect of each game to make sure that the thirst for this growing spectacle is quenched and punters can spend their Free Bets as well as bet in general with continued enthusiasm.
As I write this, Pune Warriors are about to line up against Kings XI Punjab and these two sides that make up the last game of this round of fixtures in the first week, are receiving an abundance of betting punters who are receiving odds on: top run scorer (for either team), biggest opening partnership, most run outs, which team of the top scorer and so on.
The internet is buzzing in the UK with not only interest from its big Indian community but from cricket lovers everywhere who are watching it live on TV but betting with their favourite online bookmaker.
If you want a tip on how to bet on this market, you don’t have to be a great predictor of results to choose from a bet that only has two outcomes, in other words, a binary bet. For instance, betting on a specific cricketer to get more or less than 38.5 runs, especially if he has settled into his batting stride, can make your job as a punter a lot easier, improving the results of your bets, far more winners! Just make sure you are watching it live and not the highlights…
888sport feels that it has the edge in its betting coverage of the IPL as it has as its 888sport ambassador, the spinning legend that is Shane Warne, one of the greatest bowlers in the history of cricket and an icon on the sub-continent.
Warne is once again playing and coaching the Rajasthan Royals who he led to the top of the final standings three years ago and the 888sport man’s teams are well worth a free bet if you have one spare as they will be there or thereabouts at the season’s end.
888sport is also the place to make live bets and with the Indian Premier League being shown all over the world, your predictions on the winner as the match unfolds has never been easier and highlights how much ‘in play’ betting has developed over the last 12-18 months.
When the final IPL standings are revealed in a few months, you will see a world that is cricket obsessed and willing to stake more and more money on the outcome of the games.
