England 11/8 to claim ODI series whitewash in West Indies

| 01.03.2017

England are favourites to win their upcoming three-match ODI Series against the West Indies, and our latest odds suggest they could well claim 3-0 whitewash.

Eoin Morgan’s men are 1/4 for the series, with 11/8 saying they win 3-0.

The hosts are 3/1 outsiders, with 4/1 available on a 2-1 Series result for the Windies, and an unlikely 20s saying they claim a full house over England.

The two warm-up contests both went the way of the tourists, although Monday’s second encounter was only achieved by a two-wicket margin.

It hasn’t been plain sailing so far though for Morgan and England, who are without a number of key men.

David Willey, Mark Wood and Reece Topley are out, while Jake Ball was injured in Monday’s clash in St Kitts.

Surrey bowler Tom Curran has been called up to take Ball’s place for his senior debut.

And Alex Hales is joining the team in the Caribbean this week, but only to continue his recovery from a broken hand.

Meanwhile, the Windies will be hoping Carlos Brathwate can recapture his magic from the T20 World Cup, where he memorably walloped four straight sixes off Ben Stokes in the final versus England.

The tourists are 4/11 favourites for the opener this week, with West Indies 9/4.

With Hales out, Joe Root and Jason Roy share top billing at 5/2 each to be England’s highest runscorer in for the series.

And the duo share the betting for Friday’s opening encounter in Antigua, with 11/4 apiece saying one of them picks up the most runs.

Adil Rashid is 3/1 favourite to claim the most wickets for the tourists over the next three matches, ahead of Chris Woakes at 7/2.

It’s 4/1 that Curran enjoys a dream debut by taking the most wickets for England on Friday, with Rashid and Woakes again favourites at 7/2.

With June’s ICC Champions Trophy rapidly approaching, this three-match series in the Caribbean kick-starts a big year England, and they’ll want to start it victoriously.
