TAB Fast Facts - 2019 Cricket World Cup Final

TAB Fast Facts - 2019 Cricket World Cup Final

The Cricket World Cup is always a popular one off sporting event for the TAB, but because of the challenging timezone of the tournament we didn’t anticipate it would be so popular with punters this time round!

Due in part to the overwhelming popularity of the TAB Super Sixes promotion, and the success of the mighty Blackcaps, we now expect the 2019 Cricket World Cup will rank among the top five sporting events in our organisation’s history.

When the TAB first opened the outright winner option a year ago New Zealand opened at $9, they were paying $10 at the start of the tournament and have now come in to $3.35 to lift the Cricket World Cup. England opened at $3.25, drifted to $5.50 and are now firm favourites.

In the past 24 hours we’ve seen a lot of support for New Zealand, including one bet of $10,000 in the head to head option @ $3.35.
