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