Lancashire, Leicestershire and Middlesex also all stand great chances of doing well while Gloucestershire and Worcestershire will not want to be the whipping boys of the group.
CB40 Group A Favourites
Lancashire and Essex will most likely be considered the CB40 Group A favourites. Lancashire will still be on a high because they won the County Championship last season, a completely different competition but it will give them a lot of confidence nevertheless.
Essex are one of the more unpredictable teams when it comes to any form of cricket. When Essex have their England players back, they will have one of the strongest teams in the country. They also play at one of the most intimidating grounds in the country at Chelmsford. Essex are supported well all over the country and have a good shout of at least getting out of the group.
CB40 Group A Underdog
Middlesex could draw a lot of attention from the punters when it comes to Cricket Betting, they are a CB40 group A underdog. Middlesex are similar to Essex in the respect that potentially they have a very strong team to go into this competition with. The likes of Eoin Morgan should be playing in the competition as the England batsman has fallen out of favour at international level.
The Netherlands are not expected to do well in this tournament, they never are but thyey are a CB40 group A underdog. However, they have a little bit of experience when it comes to this tournament and also international cricket. They are best backed on a match by match CB40 Cricket Betting 2012 basis.
CB40 Group A
The rest of the sides in CB40 group A all have a great chance to move towards the favourite position when it comes to CB40 group A betting and the market could change if they start well. Leicestershire are the current T20 champions and will want to show their quality in limited overs cricket.
It is a little harder to predict how Worcestershire and Gloucestershire are going to play because they do not have the players and the resources of the other teams. This could work in their favour as cricket is one of the few sports where a genuine work ethic can eradicate any gap in quality from the opposition.
CB40 Group A Betting Markets
There are many CB40 group A betting markets which are best left alone for at least the first one or two matches. Although Lancashire and Essex both stand a great chance of winning the group, both could start the competition badly which would push their odds longer and provide greater value on the betting market.
The best approach with CB40 group A betting markets is to be a little savvy when it comes to placing bets. Look for the more niche bets which will have greater value and keep an eye on the players in each team as it could be possible to get bets on the top batsman or top bowler for the entire tournament.
