    Question

    My dad had a bet on Glamorgan to be the venue which gets the most runs scored at 11/1. What do you think of his chances?

    Looks like free money to me - that means for it to be a break-even bet Cardiff needs to have the most runs scored once out of every twelve times. If all five pitches were even, it'd be 1/5, so 1/12 must be good value.
    Or something.

    Would that all venues were equal.

    The Oval, and in particularly Lords, are more likely to provide the highest number of runs.
