The Cricket World Cup futures market is available to bet on years out from the opening ball of the competition. This makes it a popular option for punters who think they can get an advantage by predicting the outcome of the World Cup in advance.

Cricket World Cup Head-to-Head Betting
The 2019 Cricket World Cup will see a total of 48 matches played and head-to-head betting on each of these games will be a popular choice among punters.
Given that cricket is one of the most wagered on sports in the world, there is sure to be a massive amount of money placed on each and every match in the upcoming World Cup.
It’s expected that there will be quite a few one-sided markets when teams like England face outsiders like Afghanistan. However, over the years there have been many World Cup upsets so be wary before betting and bet within your limits.
2019 Cricket World Cup Top Run Scorer Betting
This market is pretty self explanatory but often there can be good value to be found if you can pin-point who will score the most runs in the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup.
Something to keep in mind when betting on this market are that while each side will play a minimum of nine times, teams that make the Cricket World Cup final will get an advantage of two additional games over those that miss out on making the knockout stage.
For this reason players from the favoured nations like England, India and Australia are at a shorter price.
Players who are higher up in the batting order also have an advantage as players who don’t open the batting can often have a limited time to make runs.
