Double Odds special on the Ashes 3rd Test

England and Australia clash at Old Trafford this week in the 3rd Ashes Test, with the Aussies looking to salvage the series by registering a victory which would reduce the deficit after defeats at Trent Bridge and Lord’s.

Double Odds

Paddy Power ran a double odds special for the 1st Test which saw them pay out on Ian Bell following his second innings century at Trent Bridge and the Irish firm will be once again running this offer for the 3rd Test in Manchester.

Double-Odds Special
Back a winning Top Team Runscorer in any innings of the Third Test, and if the player scores a century, then Paddy Power will pay you out at DOUBLE your original odds.

So for example, if you put £10 on Alastair Cook to score the most 1st innings runs for England and the captain not only top scores but also manages a century, you will get paid out at 6/1 and pocket a profit of £60 rather than the 3/1 currently available.

Kevin Pietersen is a 4/1 chance so you would get 8/1 if KP managed a century, while Matt Prior’s odds would be boosted from 11/1 to 22/1 if the wicket keeper found some form with the bat at Lord’s.

LBW In-Play Money Back

Meanwhile, In-Play punters can enjoy a fantastic money back special which is virtually guaranteed to see Paddy Power refunding stakes. If your player is out LBW, Paddy will refund losing betting in-running bets on their Runs market for that innings.

So for example, you might be betting on Joe Root to score 50 or more runs In-Play and this offer gives you the insurance of getting money back should the England opener be out on a LBW count.
