2019 ICC Cricket World Cup odds - England favourites to capture World Cup at home

England are favourites to capture the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup which begins on May 30.

The host nation are currently $3 favourites with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au to capture the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup. Their campaign will begin by taking on South Africa ($8.50) at The Oval on May 30. It will be the first of 48 matches played. 

England have a strong ODI outfit led by captain Eoin Morgan, fresh off making 70 against the West Indies. All-rounder Ben Stokes will be a key figure during the World Cup, as will batsman Joe Root, wicket-keeper Jos Buttler and opening batsman Jason Roy. 

India are second favourites at $3.50 and Australia witnessed first hand what India are capable of in Test cricket. The upcoming ODI series between India and Australia will be a good lead-up to the World Cup with both nations expected to perform well. 

A 4-1 ODI Series victory for India over New Zealand in January and February showcased some of their best talent, with their opening combination of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan a force to be reckoned with. Throw in the world’s best batsman Virat Kohli and a strong bowling line up where every bowler is a wicket-taking threat, and India will be one of the teams to beat in the tournament. 

Australia are $6.50 and they are expected to be bolstered by the return of David Warner and Steve Smith. Captain Aaron Finch captured a Big Bash Title with the Melbourne Renegades and will be looking to lead his men against India in the upcoming ODI series. 

South Africa and New Zealand ($9) are the other nations in single figures with Pakistan next best at $10. Afghanistan may have spinning sensation Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and captain Asghar Afghan, but they are $81 rank outsiders alongside Bangladesh.
