The World of Spread Betting is becoming increasingly popular online and with the 2011 Cricket World Cup on the horizon it should prove to be a fantastic way to have a bet on the tournament. Spread Betting is so popular because it offers punters the chance to win as big as they like as well as limiting their losses. Spread Betting differs from the more traditional bookmakers betting as it measures how right or wrong a punter is and rewarding them accordingly as opposed to the traditional win or lose bet that is common.

Cricket is an excellent sport for Spread Betting both during each match at the World Cup or for the overall win market. One of the best spread markets in cricket involves punters having to guess how many runs a team will score in their innings, the price offered from the bookmaker will be based on the form and firepower within the team. Punters will then need to decide if they believe the team will score more or less than the estimate from the bookmakers; and punters can have a bet per run scored over or under what the price. An example would be that if a team were given a price of 250 a punter could bet �10 for every run the team scores more than 250; likewise for every run under they would lose �10.
