Online Cricket Betting Tips: Key things to keep in mind

The internet has taken the world by storm. We can communicate within seconds, do our shopping without leaving our seat and engage with more content than ever before.

Another product of the rise of the internet is the rise of online cricket betting. Betting can be a way of having some extra fun when watching cricket. However, it can be an issue too, and I am not referring to the possibility and rise in the cases of fixing over the years. I am referring to betting on an individual level.

I am not a betting person myself, but millions of fans are. So, I thought I would share some key tips to keep in mind when looking to win!

1. NEVER chase your losses

You play to win, but winning is not always the result. Losses are part and parcel of betting. However, how you respond to this situation is actually crucial to individual well being.

This tip is number one before anything else because of the damage chasing losses can do. $10 can then become $50. $50 can then become $100, and so on. As you try to recover, it can be very easy to spiral more and more out of control, especially as your phone is right in your hand. Give yourself a daily or weekly limit and stick to it.

So, have a strategy in place where you plan and track your finances. If you feel you are at risk of gambling addiction, there is help out there. Cricket Betting should be something you can enjoy and not be a cause of harm!

2. Do your research

Your betting strategy should include research. It is important you do your research before placing a wager.

Cricket is not only a game of statistics, but a game of conditions, strategy and individual battles. Understanding previous matches between teams, records and statistics puts you in a better position to make a call. You want to take the necessary amount of time to consider all alternatives before placing a bet. Cricket Previews, like those available on CricBlog, explore key stats and avenues for victory for teams. These can provide important information to you ahead of matches.

After all, you want to give yourself every possible chance of winning. So, place a bet if you feel confident on the back of research.

3. Always place a Head-to-Head bet AFTER the toss

The toss is more important than ever before in cricket. This is often the case in Test cricket, where teams who won the toss often going on to win the Test match.

Waiting for the toss and and insight into the conditions is crucial. For example, in the ongoing 2019 World Cup, teams who batted first won 28 of the 41 completed games in the group stage.

4. Ensure the site is safe and reputable

Always bet through trusted providers. The internet is a place where scammers run ragged, hunting their prey at all times. It is crucial to ensure the website or app has the appropriate security measures and encryptions in place to ensure you are at ease with where you are placing your money.

5. Look for good promotions

You can’t beat a good promotion.

With competition rife in the online betting industry, bookmakers are always working on promotions to increase their client base and loyalty. For example, provides some offers if you fancy a bet on the cricket. These are opportunities for you to minimise your losses whilst enjoying betting on the action.

6. Learn about the different types of bets and what works for you

The game of cricket has a number of betting options. From runs in an over, to next man dismissed, to the result of a match, the possibilities are endless.

However, it is important to:

  • Understand each option, taking into consideration the probability of the event occurring.
  • Know what works best for you from previous experience. For example, is it simple pick-the-winner betting that works best for you?
  • Use this to develop a betting strategy, keeping in mind point one: always have a financial plan and limit.

A 100% winning strategy is not realistic. If it was, bookmakers would not exist.

Bookmakers are around to make a profit. It is important to keep these tips in mind to ensure you are safe and that your individual well being is intact.
