2019 The Ashes Series Prediction
As with any Test match series in cricket, home advantage has to be a significant factor in any Ashes predictions for 2019. No fewer than eight of the nine last Ashes series have been won by the host nation. Familiarity with playing conditions in terms of weather and in having pitches prepared to favour the home team’s bowling attack
England are bookies favourites in The Ashes odds to win the series, albeit only marginally as things stand. That is largely on account of the aforementioned home advantage.
It may have been a different form of cricket, but England will also be buoyed by having recently won the Cricket World Cup on home soil, having beaten New Zealand in an incredible final and also defeating Australia at the semi-final stage of the tournament.
England are probably just about worthy favourites in the Ashes 2019 betting odds but, with much of the Australia squad having been in England for the World Cup, they should already be acclimatized with English batting conditions. Australia are perfectly capable of retaining The Ashes if they make a solid start to the series.
Betting markets on The Ashes outcome winner with cricket betting sites will change throughout the series, particularly as results from each Test match are confirmed. It’s worth noting that should the series be drawn, Australia will retain the Ashes as current holders.
There will also be numerous betting promotions both before and throughout the Ashes and for every one of the five Tests. As the major Test series in international cricket, The Ashes betting is hugely popular and the bookmakers will go out of their way to attract new customers with a variety of Ashes free bets and promotions throughout the entire series.
2019 The Ashes Series Prediction

England look to be just about worthy favourites in the Ashes betting as things stand but, with much of the Australia squad having been in England for the World Cup, they will have had ample opportunity to come to terms with English batting conditions.

On other cricket betting markets for the series, David Warner and Steve Smith could both be worth considering in the ‘Top Batsmen’ market, while Mitchell Starc (the top wicket-taker at the World Cup), has to be a strong contender to take the most wickets as ‘Top Bowler’ in the series.

Which team has won most Ashes series?
Australia has a narrow lead over England with regards to the number of Ashes series won, with 33 wins to 32. There have been five drawn series. The fact that the series is historically so close is one of the reasons why the Ashes is so fiercely competitive.
Why is The Ashes called The Ashes?
The Ashes originated as a term following a satirical obituary published in a British newspaper, The Sporting Times, immediately after Australia’s first Test win on English soil in 1882 at The Oval. The obituary claimed that English cricket had died, and “the body will be cremated and the ashes taken to Australia”.
Before the 1882-83 series in Australia, England captain Ivo Bligh had vowed to “regain those ashes”, with the English media subsequently dubbing the tour as, “the quest to regain the Ashes”.
England won the first two of the three Test series on the tour, leading to Bligh being presented with a small urn by a group of women from Melbourne. The urn’s contents are said to be the ashes of a wooden bail and were described as, “the ashes of Australian cricket”.
Has Australia won The Ashes in England?
In Ashes cricket history, Australia have won 14 of the 35 Ashes series played in England, although they haven’t come home with the urn since 2001 when they won the series 4-1. Winning any Test match series overseas has tended to be more difficult in recent years though, with pitches invariably prepared to suit the home team.
Has England won The Ashes in Australia?
England have won an Ashes series in Australia on 14 occasions from 35 attempts. Their last win on Australian soil was in the 2010-11 series (3-1).
