The range of cricket odds available is wide-ranging, an encouraging sign regardless of how experienced you are.
The average pre-game IPL offering consists of 64 different betting markets. While this isn’t the biggest selection on the market, it makes Sportsbet.io one of the leading Indian betting sites.
Each of the most popular betting markets was well covered, as well as some more obscure options. This applies whether you’re backing who will win the match, score the most runs or how many boundaries there will be. There are also dozens of futures odds priced well ahead of each series or tournament getting underway.
At the time of writing, odds were available for the following tournaments:
- Indian Premier League
- Big Bash League
- Pakistan National Cup
- Cricket World Cup
- T20 World Cup
BetBuilder is Available on Cricket Odds
One of the unique features that Sportsbet.io currently offers is BetBuilder. This allows bets from a single match to be combined into an accumulator.
This has become very popular with many major European sportsbooks but it’s usually restricted to other sports such as football. This the first instance we’ve seen of it in use on cricket odds. It’s certainly a reason to consider using Sportsbet.io if you’re a fan of cricket accumulators.
Some of the markets on offer include:
- Player to score 10+ runs
- Match result
- Player to take a wicket
- How many runs will be scored in the match
- Player to hit a four or six
- Team to hit the most sixes or fours
Competitive Odds on Cricket
Sportsbet.io’s odds are competitive. They are operating at a similar margin compared to the competition. Not every match will have the same “house edge” built-in but understanding how much is being added to the potential outcomes of big events is a good guide.
Given that there is a daily price boost available too, these odds can be improved even further.
Here’s how the regular odds compare to several other betting sites in India.

Live Cricket Odds
The range of live odds was impressive. During several live matches from the IPL there were over 20 different markets to pick from. On top of this, there were several betting options with a big selection of outcomes.
For example, instead of offering just one line on the number of runs in the first six overs of an Indian Premier League match, there were three different lines, each with the option to back over or under the current number. This allows bettors even more control over their picks.
The choice of odds will reduce when a wicket is taken, but this is to allow the prices to be adjusted. Each of the markets will re-appear in a few seconds so there are minimal delays in placing any bets.
Scorecards and Ball-by-ball Tracker
As well as the latest odds, Sportsbet.io have a ball-by-ball tracker that shows what’s happening on the pitch at any given point.
This forms part of a scorecard that includes which batsman are at the crease, the bowler and the current score. Although not a revolutionary addition, it’s a useful tool if you’re betting in-play.
