The Hundred Betting Tips

The Hundred is entering its third edition in 2023 and with August of the cricketing calendar dedicated to the competition, expect the tournament to ride the back of the Ashes wave.

Trent Rockets are the defending men’s champions and have been priced up as favourites for a repeat but there is little to separate the field in what looks like an ultra-competitive affair, with Welsh Fire the biggest price at 15/2.

In the women’s competition, Oval Invincibles have lifted the trophy in the first two editions of the tournament and will be hoping for a treble, although they have been knocked off their perch at the top of the market by Southern Brave.

Tip 1 - Oval Invincibles to win the Men’s Hundred @ 6/1

The Men’s Hundred has been a difficult-to-predict affair, with the inaugural winners, Southern Brave, finishing seventh last year.

Teams can take a big step forward from one season to the next and the draft system, which gives the side with the worst record the year before the first pick, has helped to level the playing field.

With that in mind, it would be foolish to write off any team and the outsiders in the market may provide more value than those at the head of affairs.

Oval Invincibles have finished mid-table in both previous editions of the competition but have kept together a solid core of their Surrey players, including Sam and Tom Curran, Sunil Narine and Jason Roy.

They have overseas stars Adam Zampa, Heinrich Klaasen and Ihsanullah and highly-thought-of youngster Tawanda Muyeye.

Their balance of youth and experience looks just right and Surrey’s experience in this year’s T20 Blast, in which they were pipped in the semi-finals by Somerset who went on to lift the trophy, should stand them in good stead for this competition.

With a stacked batting line-up, Oval Invincibles are fancied to put their mid-table days behind them and secure the silverware this time around.

Tip 2 - Southern Brave to win the Women’s Hundred @ 13/5

Oval Invincibles have won back-to-back editions of the Women’s Hundred, beating Southern Brave in the final on both occasions.

However, the Brave could reverse the form this time around. Danni Wyatt is in red-hot form after the Ashes and will be joined by Indian superstar Smriti Mandhana. The Brave have added pace in Maitlan Brown and have exciting youngster Freya Kemp in their ranks.

Lauren Bell and Anya Shrubsole will be charged with carrying most of the wicket-taking responsibilities and can give the latter a perfect send-off as she nears retirement.

Oval Invincibles have lost Shabnim Ismail and are also dealing with the injury to Tash Farrant, so they look weaker than last year and it may be third time lucky for Southern Brave as they look to finally get one over their rivals.
