England v Australia 1st ODI betting tips & prediction
Welcome to our England v Australian betting tips, prediction & odds update for the first one-dayer being played at Old Trafford on Friday.
England are riding high after winning the best-of-three T20 series 2-1, after taking an unassailable lead into the final clash on Tuesday. But they will be disappointed to have dropped the final game which allowed Australia to hold on to the No.1 T20 ranking.
Now the attention turns to the 50-over format, with England and Australia two of the most powerful one-day teams in the world.
The home team, the current World Champion, has been installed a 1.72 favourite to win this clash and Australia are priced at $2.10, with this probably a reflection on the home ground advantage.
England will again be without their star all-rounder Ben Stokes as he deals with a personal issue, but their playing stocks appear to be more match-hardened than those of Australia, who made their return to International cricket in the T20s.
England have recently defeated both West Indies and Pakistan in Test series, on top of playing shorter-form fixtures against both nations.
In contrast, Australian paceman Mitchell Starc has come out in the wake of the T20 series loss and said the lack of match practice had definitely impacted their performance.
Australia will be hoping their top order can lift with their batsmen struggling to find a good tempo at times in the 20-over format.

England v Australia tips – 1st ODI
Here are our best bets for the 1st one-day international between England and Australia at Old Trafford:
Aaron Finch top-score for Australia at 4-1
Finch got three starts from three knocks in the T20s but didn’t really cash in and get a half century. Importantly, he looked to be in good order and will appreciate the extra overs with the white ball to build an innings. He is paying 4-1 to top score for the Aussies.
Adil Rashid top wicket-taker for England
The English leg-spinner was probably the pick of their bowlers during the T20s and he looks to cause the Australians problems in the shorter formats. He snared three wickets in the final T20 and was landing them well. With Jofra Archer leading the white ball charge, there is every chance the Finch-Warner combination will bat conservatively early before attempting to accelerate in the middle overs when the likes of Rashid are bowling. He is paying 5-1 to top the wickets for England.
England v Australia prediction 11/9/2020
England deserved their win in the T20 series, but we think the absence of Stokes might be more telling in the longer format. While undoubtedly England’s middle order is better in white ball cricket, they still look a little frail without their talisman. The toss could be crucial here, with the second innings to be played in the evening. In the end, we think Australia look a little stronger on paper, despite the odds. Our final England v Australia prediction? Australia by 66 runs.
