I've got a $20 with a Pommy mate of mine Australia VS England in terms of retaiing/winning the Ashes.
And he has given me a 1 Test headstart!!!!
eg: 2-2 result and I win the bet.
Quite happy with the start.
Just bet $50 Hussey won't last the series. Fairly good chance here. Reckon he'll be gone after the third test
Matt Prior paying 15/1 to be top English batsman is a decent bet I think.

Depends on what one believes the percentages of Australia winning are.
In my view Australia are at least a 50% chance. So anything significantly over $2 will be value in my view. Australia are inching towards $2.20 on Betfair. Some good performances by England in the practice matches should ensure it goes over that.
Edit: Sorry that's the first test odds

Sorry excuse me, I'm looking at the first test odds, not series odds. Rookie error.
Don't think Australia will get to $2.20 before the first test, which is what I'd say is value for the series.
I think Aus at 2.20 is damn good value, anything over 1.8 I'd say is worth a go. Maybe that's just me being pessimistic.
I betted on England in 2009 at 5.3, I wish they'd stop getting backed so as I can find a good deal on them again.

Just put another bet on with a mate
Gave him 7.5-1 on Hussey making two centuries at $50
Managed to get 7.0 on Siddle to be the Aussie top wicket taker in the series before it was announced that Bollinger was being released odds shortened to 5 at the mo so quite happy with that.
Am thinking of putting a few quid on KP to be overall top run scorer at 8.0 got a gut feeling he will do very well.
