How do you place a bet on a spread of cricket?

A ‘spread’ refers to a range of possible outcomes. If you believe the outcome is likely, you can ‘buy’ the spread. However, if the outcome is unlikely, you can’sell’ it.

This type of betting can quickly result in a large win or loss.

Let’s take a look at it with a cricketing example.

It’s the first day in a test match at the Gabba between Australia and India. The pitch is fast and hard for bowlers. India’s aggressive openers, Mayank Aggarwal or Rohit Sharma, are at the crease. Australia boasts a world-class bowling team.

35-40 may be the spread for the fall of the first wicket. You can purchase the spread if you believe India’s openers will score more runs before they are out. You will make more profit for every run they score that is higher than the spread.

However, your loss will also increase if Australia’s bowlers strike quickly.
