Australia’s act of chivalry that’s seen us gift England one of our best coaches has had no effect on England’s chances of Ashes success according to the market with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au.
Trevor Bayliss has mentored 9 of the Aussie squad in his role as NSW coach but despite knowing the players’ weaknesses, England remain the $4.33 outsider to win this year’s Ashes.
Australia are the $1.36 favourites, and Sportsbet is offering $9.00 for a 5-0 clean sweep!
The Aussies are priced at $1.20 to retain the urn while Bayliss and his fellow overseas-born team are $4.33 to wrestle the precious Ashes off us.
“The appointment of Trevor Bayliss has been hailed as a coup but you wouldn’t know it looking at our market because 90% of the money has been on Australia to win the series,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
