Every Aussie knows the Poms will do anything to dodge a ‘shout’ at the bar and sportsbet.com.au agrees.
The online bookmaker reckons an Australian cricketer, at the end of the Ashes series, is $1.80 to shout the first round of drinks ahead of an Englishman ($2.00).
The favoured drop is Stella Artois ($3.00) and the predicted venue the Lord’s Tavern ($2.00).
The Aussies are tipped to be in a better frame of mind for a beer as they are $2.35 favourites to win the second Test, starting at Lord’s tomorrow, England ($2.80) and the draw is $3.55.
“The Poms stood up in the first Test, but it seems when it comes to buying a beer for someone they disappear. If the Poms happen to regain the Ashes trophy they might be a chance of defying the odds, but history shows that’s a longshot,’’ said sportsbet.com.au’s Will Byrne.
