Welcome to our England v Australia 1st ODI betting tips, prediction & odds update for the first one-dayer being played at Old Trafford on Friday.
The 1st match of the 3-match ODI series between England v Australia: Friday, 11 September at the Old Trafford, Manchester, (01-PM LOCAL).
England is riding high after winning the best-of-three T20 series 2-1, after taking an unassailable lead into the final clash on Tuesday. But they will be disappointed to have dropped the final game which allowed Australia to hold on to the No.1 T20 ranking.
Now the attention turns to the 50-over format, with England and Australia two of the most powerful one-day teams in the world.
The home team, the current World Champion, has been installed a 1.72 favorite to win this clash, and Australia is priced at $2.10, with this probably a reflection on the home ground advantage.
England will again be without their star all-rounder Ben Stokes as he deals with a personal issue, but their playing stocks appear to be more match-hardened than those of Australia, who made their return to International cricket in the T20s.
England has recently defeated both West Indies and Pakistan in Test series, on top of playing shorter-form fixtures against both nations.
In contrast, Australian paceman Mitchell Starc has come out in the wake of the T20 series loss and said the lack of match practice had definitely impacted their performance.
Australia will be hoping their top order can lift with their batsmen struggling to find a good tempo at times in the 20-over format...

Eng vs Aus 1st ODI Match Prediction & Analysis
With England's win over Australia, England's T20I summer is over. It was only six matches long - three matches each against Pakistan and Australia and with three wins from five completed matches, England would be fairly content.
England and Australia will both now move to Manchester to take on each other in the fifty-over format - the format both sides will be more comfortable to play. The first match of the three-match series is set to be played at Old Trafford Cricket Stadium, Manchester, on 11th September 2020. As was the case in T20s, we expect the upcoming match to be a cliffhanger. A feast for the fans is certainly on the cards.
- As compared to the T20I series, not much will change for England as far as the team composition is concerned. While it has been a while since England won the World Cup title, we haven't seen them feature in many ODI matches since then. Their team will pretty much be the same with a notable absence of en Stokes.
- Playing under the leadership of Eoin Morgan, England seems to be an altogether different team. The team, in all likelihood, should have Eoin Morgan back to lead them in the first match of the series. Morgan suffered a blow on his finger in the second T20I and had to miss the third match. The injury, however, wasn't deemed serious and Morgan should be back in the business.
- With Joe Root returning to the scene, England's batting looks pretty strong. Joe Root did exceedingly well in the limited T20 stint for Yorkshire and will be looking to replicate his form in the fifty-over format. England will also be boosted by Jason Roy's return at the top of the order. Roy missed the T20I series against Australia and Pakistan due to a side strain.
- On paper, England's batting lineup looks as good as any with terrific openers in Jonny Bairstow and Jason Roy followed by an experienced middle-order consisting of Joe Root and Eoin Morgan. With the likes of Butter and Ali available to follow them, England has a batting lineup that goes really deep.
- While it didn't make much difference in the T20s, bowling could be of significant importance in the fifty-over format. England has a good set of bowlers to bowl in the first powerplay, but the lack of death bowling options is apparent. Barring Jofra Archer, almost all of their bowlers are known to be expensive and Eoin Morgan will be wary of that fact. He used Mark Wood and Tom Curran brilliantly in the T20Is and they both responded in a terrific manner. If English bowlers manage to put in a performance similar to those in T20Is, beating England at home is going to be a colossal task.

- It was not only the T20I series that Australia lost, but they would have also lost whatever rustiness that they had before taking the field. Undoubtedly, they'll be better prepared and better equipped to take on England in the fifty-over format that they were in the shortest format of the game. Australia was uncertain of their middle-order heading into the T20I series, but their ODI outfit is better-balanced and more settled.
- Just like England, Australia's squad for the ODIs is pretty much the same as their T20I squad. We are likely to see Marnus Labuschagne walk into the ODI side and his presence would have a calming effect in the middle-order. With Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne to follow David Warner and Aaron Finch, Australia's top four are as good as any in the world.
- Batting deep in the middle-order are Glenn Maxwell and Mitchell Marsh who both are capable to take the game away in a matter of minutes. Mitchell Marsh produced a match-winning performance in the final T20I and will be brimming with confidence. Maxwell, however, could not do much in the T20Is but scored a brilliant hundred in a practice game that he played before the T20I series.
- On the bowling front, Australia is not only rich in power but also in the options they have. Having the likes of Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell, Mitchell Marsh, and Marnus Labuschagne who all are capable bowlers would certainly be an advantage to plug the gaps in the bowling - there aren't any, though, at least on paper. Patrick Cummins and Mitchell Starc will lead the pace department with Josh Hazelwood available as well. With Adam Zampa, Ashton Agar, and Nathan Lyon in the squad, Australia have their spin covered as well.
- On paper, this Australian unit appears to be having everything. They have an excellent amalgamation of youth and experience. They have a batting lineup that goes deep coupled with a sharp bowling attack. Also, with the change in the format, their middle-order woes are likely to vanish as well. Beating this Aussie unit is certainly going to take a lot of work even for the World Champions - England.
Aaron Finch (captain), Sean Abbott, Ashton Agar, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Josh Hazlewood, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Riley Meredith, Josh Philippe, Daniel Sams, Kane Richardson, Steven Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Andrew Tye, Matthew Wade, David Warner, Adam Zampa
England v Australia prediction 11/9/2020
England deserved their win in the T20 series, but we think the absence of Stokes might be more telling in the longer format. While undoubtedly England’s middle order is better in white-ball cricket, they still look a little frail without their talisman. The toss could be crucial here, with the second innings to be played in the evening. In the end, we think Australia looks a little stronger on paper, despite the odds. Our final England v Australia prediction? Australia by 66 runs.

England v Australia tips – 1st ODI
There is little to separate the two sides. They both have terrific batting lineups with an excellent combination of hitters and accumulators. While England is playing at home and will have an advantage, the advantage shouldn't be much considering that Australia has already spent quite some time in these conditions. On paper, Australia seems to be slightly better equipped in the death bowling department and that could prove to be the distinguishing factor in the upcoming match. While the upcoming match is expected to go right down to the wire, we think that Australia - with a better bowling attack will manage to edge past England in the first ODI of the series.
Here are our best bets for the 1st one-day international between England and Australia at Old Trafford:
1:- Aaron Finch top-score for Australia at 4-1
Finch got three starts from three knocks in the T20s but didn’t really cash in and get a half-century. Importantly, he looked to be in good order and will appreciate the extra overs with the white ball to build an innings. He is paying 4-1 to top score for the Aussies.
2:- Adil Rashid top wicket-taker for England
The English leg-spinner was probably the pick of their bowlers during the T20s and he looks to cause the Australians problems in the shorter formats. He snared three wickets in the final T20 and was landing them well. With Jofra Archer leading the white ball charge, there is every chance the Finch-Warner combination will bat conservatively early before attempting to accelerate in the middle overs when the likes of Rashid are bowling. He is paying 5-1 to top the wickets for England
