One of the advantages of online gambling for sports gambling fans is the ability to follow their favourite sports all year round. This means that although the cricket season in the UK and Ireland is almost over cricket gambling fans will still be able to enjoy gambling on cricket throughout the winter. There are of course still some important matches to play, and followers of the English County Championship will know that several of today’s matches will decide which teams are relegated or promoted for next season. With Yorkshire having won Division One, the last relegation spot will be decided in the match between Lancashire and Middlesex starting today at Old Trafford. It is fair to say that gambling on cricket is not a major sports gambling activity in Ireland, but cricket gambling fans everywhere in the world are very passionate about the game and follow cricket wherever it is being played. It is also clear that the shorter forms of the game attract the greatest gambling interest, but there are still a large number of cricket gambling enthusiasts who enjoy gambling on the ups and downs of the both test cricket and the four day county championship matches. Perhaps they will still gamble on Essex gaining promotion to Division One at the expense of Hampshire, so today’s matches between Essex and Worcestershire, and Hampshire and Glamorgan will be very important games. Next year of course will be a big one for cricket gambling fans all over the world, with the World Cup always proving a big gambling event for all sports gambling fans not just cricket enthusiasts.
