The 2019 Royal London One-Day Cup is starting tomorrow so we thought what better time to get more involved in the cricket betting on the domestic front than right now! Here are the odds for the pre-competition betting. Some interesting prices flying around. I'll be posting up regular previews for games throughout the duration of this tournament so keep popping back into this thread to check out what's going on. In the mean time, give us any tips you have for this competition that will dominate English and Welsh cricket for the next month. :ok

@Fader, @neilovan, @Ocerradus, @aussietennisexpert, @NoFear, @Absurdity1007, @owenclass, @pmwelec, and @KillerKat, keen to hear your views!

Here are the odds for the first matches coming up tomorrow. Defending champions Hampshire will open their account against Kent at the St Lawrence Ground in Canterbury. I'll have a look over these games and make a decision on which one to preview later on. If you have any thoughts on what bets we should look for then don't hesitate to post them here.

Gloucestershire vs Surrey

The Royal London One-Day Cup begins tomorrow with South Group sides Gloucestershire and Surrey facing off at 11am at the County Ground in Bristol. In last season's competition, neither side qualified for play-offs so they'll both be hoping to go one better this time around.

Gloucestershire are playing their County Championship cricket in Division 2 this season and they opened their season with a draw against a highly-rated Derbyshire team. It was considered points gained in a match many expected them to lose. The batting displays of Gareth Roderick (98) and Ryan Higgins (74) has given Richard Dawson reason to be optimistic heading into this match. If overseas bowler Dan Worrall can get the wickets then this could be a dangerous Gloucestershire side.

Surrey also drew their opening County Championship game of the season in Division 1 against Essex as they started their defence of their title. The two half century scores by youngster Will Jacks was a delight for coach Michael Di Venuto. The absence of overseas batsman Dean Elgar is a concern for Di Venuto so any batsmen in good nick will be a relief. Other absentees such as Sam Curran, Scott Borthwick, Matt Dunn, Jordan Clark, Jade Dernbach, and Amar Vidi will leave Surrey short on talent.

It's a tough one to call. Ordinarily, I'd be backing Surrey all day long but they're missing some big players. I think this is one Gloucestershire might fancy they could sneak but they'll need to repel the bowling attack of Morne Morkel and Liam Plunkett if they're to do that. I think that could be the issue. I still back Surrey to just sneak this one.

2 tips for me for the outright on this. First I'll go with Kent. Last seasons runner up. One thing I like about Kent is the fact that the World Cup preparations will not trouble any of their players really. This means they can get more consistency and a better flow and we already know that they are capable.

Next bet is Worcestershire. They flourised with the Twenty20 format and although abit of a gamble, I would rather have a chance on them stepping up then some of the prices at the top.

A mixed bag of results yesterday. I really can't believe that Surrey were so poor. All out for 88. At least one of both mine and @Fader's bets came in so something to take away from a tricky start to proceedings. Here are the odds for the Friday matches coming up. Let us know your thoughts! :ok

Somerset vs Kent

The second round of Royal London One-Day Cup matches are coming up on Good Friday and our attention turns to the County Ground in Taunton at 11am where Somerset will look to get off to a winning start against a Kent side that will want to bounce back from their opening day 90 run defeat to reigning champions Hampshire.

Head-to-head one-day meetings between the two sides have been fairly even over the years. Ever since the first meeting in 1963, the two teams have played each other 70 times. Somerset have won 31, Kent have sealed victory 35 times, there has been one draw, and three matches have been abandoned.

Somerset showed great bowling performances in last year's competition. When bowling in the last 10 overs, the county boasted the best bowling strike rate in the competition with one wicket taken every 11.8 balls during those final 10 overs of the game. Not a bad stat to bring into this campaign.

Kent will be looking towards Matt Milnes to carry on his superb bowling form from Wednesday's loss to Hampshire. The debutant took a five wicket haul but it sadly wasn't enough to help his side to victory. Zak Crawley top scored with 49 in that game and he is included in the squad once again.

It was a tough start for Kent in this season's competition facing the impressive Hampshire. It was a rough defeat to take but they'll be hoping to push Somerset closer here. Unfortunately, I think the home side could well have enough to get the win and the absence of key batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond due to a family bereavement is a big loss for the visitors that will certainly hit their run total.

Here are the odds for the next round of matches coming up on Easter Sunday. A few interesting prices flying around but it's still early days in this competition and as the games so far have shown it's very unpredictable still. Let us know if you have any tips for these matches. :ok

A couple of days worth of fixtures released by Bet365 now so here's a chance to look at what's coming up. A few teams such as Gloucestershire, Hampshire, Lancashire, and Worcestershire heavily fancied but are they worth backing? I'll try to get 1-2 previews written over the next couple of days to look into these odds. In the meantime, feel free to post any thoughts up based on the results so far.

Sorry to ask again, but the IPL thread is dead at the moment. Surely you can give IPL previews priority over Royal London One Day Cup previews?

It's been the Easter break over here so things have been quiet generally because people are on holiday. No need to prioritise one over the other. If you want more IPL previews as well then we can deliver that! :ok

Sussex vs Somerset

Two teams with 100% records after two Royal London One-Day Cup matches go toe-to-toe in this 11am start on Wednesday morning at the County Ground in Hove with Sussex playing host to Somerset. Which team will surrender this unblemished start to their tournament?

Sussex have managed to battle out hard-fought wins against Surrey and Kent so far. The two wicket victory over Surrey came with 1 over and 5 balls remaining and the win against Kent was achieved with relative ease by 7 wickets. That win came with 10 overs left to spare.

Somerset absolutely destroyed Kent in their first game of the competition winning by a huge margin of 264 runs. The fact Kent failed to even reach the 100-run mark was a massive testament to the Somerset bowling attack. The second victory against Glamorgan provided a more nervy time with just 2 runs being the difference.

The away side have the superior head-to-head record in this fixture having won 4 of the past 6 meetings in the one-day format. Somerset's net run rate of 2.660 is also far greater than Sussex's 0.858. OK, so a large portion of that can be attributed to that mammoth win over Kent but it's evidence of their quality in this early stages. Worth backing the away side in this game.

Here are the Royal London One-Day Cup matches scheduled for the next couple of days. I'll get a preview up for one of the matches being played tomorrow. Weather isn't great and the forecast isn't very good so I'm not overly optimistic all games will survive the conditions.

Only Middlesex versus Sussex has survived the elements today but with Storm Hannah fiercely tearing through the UK I'm not sure how much play that game will see. So here are the odds of the matches tomorrow. I'll try to fit a preview in around the football action going on today. :ok

Worcestershire vs Nottinghamshire

The Royal London One-Day Cup action continues this week with the North Group fixture between Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire in an 11am start from the Blackfinch New Road Ground. Can the away side maintain their impressive 100% record in this competition?

Worcestershire have blown hot and cold in this competition so far. Alex Gidman's side have won 3 and lost 2 thus far meaning their progress in the tournament is still very much within reach but a couple of defeats in a row could cause serious problems. The 34 run defeat to Warwickshire in their most recent outing was a gut punch of a blow and they're up against a superb Nottinghamshire side here.

Nottinghamshire are in terrific form in the limited overs game. Peter Moores continues to work his magic in this format of the game with the Outlaws having won all 5 of their games in this competition up to this point. It's been accomplished in stunning style too with the two highest scores achieved by a team in this competition being done by them with 433/7 against Leicestershire and 417/7 versus Lancashire.

The last time these two sides met it was Nottinghamshire that won by 38 runs. Worcestershire have bid farewell to Hamish Rutherford but welcome back key Australian batsman Callum Fergsuon. Nottinghamshire are taking a slight gamble by resting influential bowler James Pattinson and Alex Hales is obviously unavailable after his off-field issues... *cough* coke snorting fool *cough*.

My feeling is that we could see an upset here. Nottinghamshire have seen in-form Ben Duckett called up to the England squad and that could be a massive loss to their batting fire power. They've been by far one of the stand-out teams in the competition so far but there's a worry that the unbeaten record could go here. At Trent Bridge, they're an unstoppable force. On the road, it's not quite as emphatic.

Good to see Worcestershire's chase victory today. An awesome performance which sees them into the Play-offs for the Semi-finals.

Reigning champions Hampshire have sealed their spot in the semi-finals but the two quarter-final berths from the South Group are still wide open heading into this final day of group games. Middlesex know that victory over a struggling Kent side will see them through. Somerset, Gloucestershire, and Sussex will then need to win and hope results go their way if they are to progress. It's set to be a fascinating final day of action in the group phase. :ok

It's the Royal London One-Day Cup Semi-Finals today. All four teams are just one step away from a prestigious final. Can Hampshire retain their title or will the in-form Nottinghamshire complete an impressive one-day campaign? Let us know what bets you're placing on these matches! :ok

The Royal London One-Day Cup Final has now been scheduled for a couple of weeks time. Hampshire will be looking to retain their title against Somerset. It's disappointing that Nottinghamshire and their attacking flair couldn't reach the final stage of the competition but it's still an exciting match-up heading our way. What bets are you guys thinking of placing for this one? I'll get a preview up in the days leading up to this game. :ok

Hampshire vs Somerset

The Royal London One-Day Cup 2019 draws to a close this weekend with the final being played between Hampshire and Somerset in an 11am start from the Lord's Cricket Ground. Can the holders retain their trophy for a second consecutive season?

Hampshire have been dealt a blow heading into this game with key bowler Liam Dawson being called up to the England squad ahead of the 2019 Cricket World Cup. Dawson managed to get 17 wickets at a rate of 18.64 during this competition. He was also a huge factor with the bat having scored 246 runs. Fortunately, for Hampshire, Dawson isn't their only shining light. Kyle Abbott has been in exemplary form with the ball with an average of 18.9 in his 8 games played. Then there's also the likes of Gareth Berg, Mason Crane, and Rilee Rossouw.

Somerset come into this game as heavy underdogs having just squeezed their way to the final. Jason Kerr's side snuck into the knock-out stages after finishing 3rd in their South Group. The turning point was the 115-run semi-final win over the much-fancied Nottinghamshire. Notts went from 110/1 to being bowled all out for 222 in just 38.2 overs. That match was proof that we could see a massive battle of the bowlers here.

It's going to be a closely fought game but I think the consistency of the Hampshire bowling attack and their experience of winning one-day finals will be enough to see them through. I've been very impressed with Hampshire's business-like approach to progressing through the competition and I felt the only side that could stop them was Nottinghamshire. It's theirs to lose now.
