Champions Trophy Cricket Betting 2013

It's good news for cricket betting fans as the cricket season is just about to kick into overdrive with the imminent arrival of the ICC 2013 Champions Trophy. This intense and prestigious competition sees the top eight cricketing nations battle it out for the prize of being the best International cricket team in the world.

Australia start as the number one seeds and favourites to lift the 2013 Champions Trophy. With heaps of exciting fixtures and Australian bookies offering free bets for those cricket betting, there's never been a better time to join a new bookie and make money predicting the outcome of cricket fixtures.

The Champions Trophy begins with a group phase, as the eight teams are divided into two groups of four. Australia have been grouped with Sri Lanka, New Zealand and England and so there’s bound to be some exciting games, particularly with the rivalry between England and New Zealand.

The best bookies usually offer some decent early odds for those games, so you may have a better chance to win big especially if you utilise the latest Luxbet free bet which can be worth up to $500 in free bets which is dependent on the value of your first bet.

The other group sees current world champions India paired with Pakistan, South Africa and the current T20 champions West Indies. This will be a hotly contested group and it’s difficult to see a clear favourite.

Betting on a team such as Pakistan, who are not a favourite, could bring great rewards and there are heaps of free cricket bets for this group's games. The match everyone is looking forward to is India vs. Pakistan, as their rivalry always produces great games.

Bookies odds will probably be fairly low as it's such a hard game to call and so won't offer as much profit potential for free bet use as other Champions Trophy matches.

Along with Australia, South Africa are one of the favourites to win the 2013 Champions Trophy. They're currently seeded third by ICC Cricket but come into the tournament in great form.

The likes of Graeme Smith and AB de Villiers are desperate to win an international tournament to cement their cricketing legacies and so using a cricket free bet on South Africa could be a smart move.

Although they’re one of the best teams in the competition, the bookies odds are enticing enough to encourage cricket betting fans to place a few early bets.

The great thing about cricket betting is that there are so many different variables, scenarios and possible outcomes. For example, you can take advantage of bookies' cricket betting offers to bet on who will win the toss, how many runs will be scored, or what the winning margin will be.

Make sure you take advantage of any free bets that your bookie offers and get the best odds by comparing bookies before you bet on the 2013 Champions Trophy.
