We are less than 48 hours away from the first Ashes Test between Australia and England at the Gabba. Latest Ashes 1st Test betting tips can be found below.
Australia start favourites for mine and it's all down to their record. The last time they lost a Test at the Gabba was in 1988 and the last time England won a Test at this ground was in 1985-86.
Both squads have selection issues but I think Australia, at home, have lesser issues and the odds on offer at some of the bookmakers, look too tempting to refuse - for instance 5/6 with BetFair - and I would have my money on that.
Things could change as the Test goes along, so I will look to keep updating the Ashes tips on a daily basis, because I firmly believe a Test match gives a lot of opportunities to trade and avoid losses.
Once I have had a look at the toss and the pitch conditions, will return to add to my tips. Always wait till after the toss in cricket to get a fairer assessment on what to put your money on.
Edit: David Warner has suffered a neck injury & could be ruled out of the XI. Shaun Marsh has had a sore back too. Glenn Maxwell has been added as cover in case either of them gets ruled out.
England Playing XI:
Cook, Stoneman, Malan, Root, Vince, Bairstow, Moeen, Woakes, Ball, Broad, Anderson.
