Where Will the England v West Indies Matches Be Played?
Three match series will be held in England, no doubt giving the hosts an advantage in any England v West Indies Odds.
The first test will be at The Rose Bowl in Southampton on July 8.
The second and third tests will both be held at Old Trafford in Manchester on July 16 and 24.
What to Know Before You Bet on England v West Indies
If you’re considering England v West Indies betting, you’ll need to know what’s at stake.
Both teams are competing for The Wisden Trophy, but perhaps more importantly it’s part of the ICC Test World Championship.
England currently sit in fourth place, while the West Indies languish in eighth position, second to last just above Bangladesh.
But these standings aren’t all they appear: West Indies have only played one series in the championship, which was against table-topping powerhouse India.
England, however, will no doubt see this as an opportunity to climb the ranks.
England v West Indies Form
Perhaps one of the biggest questions ahead of any England v West Indies betting is: How will both teams respond after a break and without a normal lead in?
West Indies haven’t played test match cricket since November 2019 and that was against minnows Afghanistan.
Meanwhile, England are coming off the back of a 3-1 win against South Africa in January, and an epic battle against Australia in the 2019 Ashes is still fresh in the memory.
However, a big blow to England hopes is the loss of captain Joe Root, one of modern test cricket’s finest operators.
Despite the loss of Root, the England v West Indies odds are still firmly in favour of the hosts.
England will have to rely on runs from other areas, with stand-in captain Ben Stokes one who will be looked at.
The match also brings the exciting match-up of the world’s two best test all-rounders in Stokes and West Indies captain Jason Holder. Who will come out on top?
England v West Indies Odds
England are odds-on favourites to win the series, given their strong home form and the quality they have with both bat and ball.
West Indies have a team with quality but consistency has been an issue. It’s for this reason that they’re the perfect underdog, so write them off at your peril. Both Jason Holder and Kemar Roach are ranked as two of the best bowlers in the world and will be eager to get stuck into the English batsmen.
Whatever happens on the pitch, Betway offers you a range of England v West Indies betting options such as: winning team, how many runs will be scored by individuals and teams, and everything all the way down to the result of the coin toss.

Previous England v West Indies Meetings
The last time these two sides met with a red ball was in 2018-19, held in the Caribbean, where West Indies took the series 2-1.
Kemar Roach walked away as Man of the Series and a haul of wickets, while Jason Holder scored a memorable double century.
But, as the England v West Indies odds reveal, the ‘Windies’ have struggled away from home, with England winning 5/5 of the past series held in the United Kingdom.
