England v New Zealand Cricket World Cup Final Latest Betting Odds
July 11, 2019
England produced a brilliant all-round performance on Thursday to thrash Australia in their World Cup semi-final and power into Sunday’s final against New Zealand. The eight-wicket demolition of the Aussies at Edgbaston means England go into their first World Cup Final for 27 years as strong favourites with UK bookies fearing a popular home win.
A strong bowling performance restricted Australia to a very moderate total of 223 and England led by 85 quick runs from Jason Roy never looked in any danger of falling short of the target.
England captain Eoin Morgan was in celebratory mood afterwards telling reporters: “This final is a huge opportunity for us.
“Looking back to where we were in 2015 compared to now it’s such a dramatic improvement and everyone in the dressing room deserves a huge amount of credit.
“Making the most of it would be brilliant but getting to the final alone is awesome.”
Betfair Sportsbook now offer the best odds of ⅓ an England World Cup win in the Lords Final which will be televised live on Channel 4 and Sky Sports.
For those understandably looking for higher odds there are plenty of other betting markets to consider including :

Man of the Match – Durham’s Ben Stokes could be value at a generally available 14/1
Team To Score Most Sixes – England odds on for this but probably not great value
New Zealand of course also produced a great display earlier in the week to defeat India in the rain-delayed semi-final and the Black Caps should not be underestimated. Having finished fourth in the World Cup Group stage just one point behind England they were big underdogs against dominant India but produced a superb display to surprise the pre-tournament favourites.
Best odds of 11/4 are currently available for New Zealand to lift the World Cup Trophy for the first time with Betfred , Skybet and Bet365.
