Betfair Traders offer Price Boost for First Test of the 2015 Ashes series

Betfair are offering new punters the chance to bag themselves an enhanced price on either team to win the First Test of this Ashes series in Cardiff.

England are the definite underdogs in this Ashes series, but players like Joe Root and Alistair Cook will perhaps be hoping to make the most of having the pressure off them, particularly following some underwhelming tests against beatable sides like New Zealand and the West Indies in recent months.

With Australia hammering England with a 5-0 whitewash in the last series just a year and a half ago, a restructure of English cricket was required, but two coaches, a terrible World Cup showing and a media circus surrounding a certain Kevin Pietersen later, and England don't seem any closer to finding the answer.

A more aggressive batting approach against New Zealand paid dividends in the first Test of that series and will have given England hope but they know if they're to stand any chance of winning this series, they'll have to get off to a good start by securing a result in the First Test in Cardiff and the best price available on the home side to kick off with a win is 12/1 on this enhancement.

But the clever punter will be going with Australia in this first test and by helping yourself to 6/1 with this boost, you'll be helping yourself to the best price available on the Kangaroos to earn the win in Cardiff and take a huge step to winning their first series in England since 2001.

The Baggy Green go into the first test of the series in Wales on the back of consecutive Test Series victories against the West Indies and India and as recent ODI World Cup winners, they'll be feeling confident of ending their 14 year wait for an away series victory against their arch enemy this summer.

In short, everything is pointing towards an Australia win in this match. They've won four of their last five tests (with England winning just one of their last five) and we can see the great form of a strong batting order including Michael Clarke, Steve Smith and David Warner proving too strong for the home team in this First Test.
