Australia has dominated the ICC World Cup of late, winning five of the last six titles, including the 2015 edition on its home soil.

Can the Aussies continue their rampage through world cricket?

Saturday, Australia is a prohibitive favorite (-910) with Points Bet to start its title defense with an emphatic victory. The Aussies will take on Afghanistan, which you can get for +550 at Points Bet, or +600 at 888 Sport if you think Afghanistan can pull off the stunner.

On 888 Sport, which has many proposition bets available to the bettor, there are many options for value on the Aussies. You can get Australia at +110 to have the highest total on the first over, with Afghanistan +115 and the tie +600.

The next method of dismissal odds are interesting, with a caught ball for the home team -240 , and a not caught out at +188. To expand those odds even more for the home team, a first out bowled is +375, LBW +600, a run out is +1500, stumped is +4000, and any other method is a whopping +20000.

The odds are the same for the first out for the away team.

Australia’s David Warner is the favorite to be Man of the Match at +450, with team mates Aaron Finch and Steven Smith at +550.
