Cricket World Cup Betting Advice and options


New Zealand and England go head to head in the Cricket World Cup final at Lord's. Jason Roy is backed to lead England to victory with another instrumental innings.

England Form & Talking Points


England have been in sublime form recently. Jason Roy has been instrumental with 50+ scores in his last four innings. His 85 helped them beat Australia in the semis.

Earlier in the day it was Jofra Archer (2-32) and Chris Woakes (3-20) who made the work easy for England's batsmen.

The odds are short on an England win but as they are favourites at 1.33. Home advantage no doubt plays its role.

New Zealand Form & Talking Points


New Zealand made the 2015 Cricket World Cup final but were beaten by Australia. They looked set for a rematch before England beat their great rivals for them.

New Zealand can be backed at 3.50 to cause another upset after beating India in the semis but they are likely to struggle to keep that momentum against the hosts. They have struggled with the bat with Martin Guptill in particular not quite looking his best self.

England vs New Zealand Key Players


Jason Roy's return from Injury has turned England's fortunes around while Jofra Archer has also had a big impact with his menacing pace.

New Zealand have bowled well but struggled at times in the batting department, even in the semifinal win over India.
