Betting on the T20 World Cup

There are various markets available on T20 World Cup matches. Check out your favourite bookmaker to see all of the T20 World Cup markets are available. We will discuss the most popular bet types.

Outright Winner Bets

All bookmakers will offer odds on the outright tournament winner for an upcoming T20 World Cup. These markets can change drastically once the competition begins with upsets or poor performances from top teams changing the market.

Match Betting

Punters will back the team they think will win the T20 match. This includes preliminary round matches all the way through to the T20 World Cup Final.

Top Team Runscorer

One of the biggest markets available on the T20 World Cup is the top runscorer market. These will be broken down by team. For example, if Australia is playing against England, there will be a Top Australia Runscorer market and Top England Runscorer.

If the player you selected is the highest runs scorer for their side, you will be paid out as a winner.

Top Team Wicket Taker

Bookmakers offer markets on which bowler will take the most wickets for a team. Compared to top runscorer markets, there is a far greater likelihood of a tied result between two or more bowlers for this market.

In the event of two players taking three wickets apiece as an example, dead heat rules apply and bets will be paid out at half odds for both players; if you backed a player at $6.00 and they were tied, you would receive a $3.00 return.
