Ashes amongst largest cricket events for PlayUp

Ahead of the First Test of the Ashes Series, PlayUp customers have shown significant support for the home team.

Overall, 55% of the money for the First Test has been placed on Australia, with the majority of other bets going on the draw as opposed to an outright English victory.

PlayUp Head of Wagering, Tristan De Luca, said The Ashes is one of the most popular cricket events for PlayUp customers.

“We’ve seen limited support for England as our customers look to stay away from Joe Root’s team and are only focusing on Australia and the draw.”

“We are anticipating an increase in interest from our customers based on the fact the series is on home soil. So far there has been plenty of patriotic support, and we expect that to continue.”
