This summer, The Hundred returns on the back of a successful inaugural season. There were doubts that cricket’s newest format would not take off. However, both the men’s and women’s tournaments were huge successes.

Due to the tournament’s popularity, I have decided to put together a betting guide for The Hundred 2022. If you’re a cricket fan and enjoy wagering on the sport, you will love this Hundred betting guide.

Not only do I discuss The Hundred odds for both men’s and women’s tournaments in 2022, but I also analyze all the top contenders. On top of that, I will share my 2022 Hundred predictions at the end of this post.

Let’s start with the odds for the men’s Hundred and navigate our way through the rest. Ready to get in on the action now? Find your favorite bet at the best cricket betting apps.

Birmingham Phoenix6.00
Trent Rockets6.50
Northern Superchargers7.50
Oval Invincibles7.50
Manchester Originals8.50
Welsh Fire8.50
London Spirit9.00

Here are the opening betting odds for the men’s Hundred in 2022. Keep reading to find out where I found these prices and the best place to lay down your wagers.

In the eyes of the bookmakers, Southern Brave is the favorite to win the men’s edition of The Hundred in 2022. The Southampton-based side finished second in last year’s standings before triumphing in the knockout phase.

Birmingham Phoenix is the second favorite, having finished atop the standings in 2021. Coached by New Zealand legend Daniel Vettori, the Phoenix will be eager to make amends for last season’s final loss.

Last year, Andy Flower’s Trent Rockets secured the third and final knockout spot. However, they lost to the Brave in the Eliminator. Can the Nottingham outfit challenge for the trophy once again?

According to The Hundred odds, Northern Superchargers and Oval Invincibles stand an equal chance of winning the men’s tournament in 2022. The same can be said for Manchester Originals and Welsh Fire, who are priced at 8.50

It is no real surprise that London Spirit is the bookies’ outsider. Last season, the team from the capital picked up just a single victory in eight matches en route to finishing three points adrift at the bottom of the standings.

What Happened in the Men’s Hundred Last Year?

After winning six of their eight matches, the Phoenix claimed first place in the 2021 standings. That meant they booked their spot in the final, leaving the Brave and the Rockets to battle it out in the Eliminator.

The Brave won the Eliminator before thrashing Birmingham by 32 runs in the final. Paul Stirling starred in the showpiece, smashing 61 runs off 36 deliveries.

THE HUNDRED 2021 STANDINGS (MEN)
Team Matches Wins Losses No Result Points Net Run Rate
Birmingham Phoenix 8 6 2 12 1.087
Southern Brave (C) 8 5 2 1 11 0.034
Trent Rockets 8 5 3 10 0.035
Oval Invincibles 8 4 3 1 9 0.123
Northern Superchargers 8 3 4 1 7 0.510
Manchester Originals 8 2 4 2 6 –0.361
Welsh Fire 8 3 5 0 6 –0.827
London Spirit 8 1 6 1 3 –0.641

As you can see, the Invincibles narrowly missed out on a place in the top three. At the opposite end of the standings, the Spirit endured a campaign to forget. They recorded a solitary win and finished at rock bottom of the table.

Now that we’re up to speed with what happened last season, we can go over the best Hundred betting picks for the men’s tournament in 2022.

Top Betting Picks for Men’s Hundred 2022

Below, I analyze the best men’s Hundred cricket betting picks for 2022. I have decided to feature three teams that stand a strong chance of securing the silverware this year.

Southern Brave (4.00)

It only makes sense to start with the defending champions, right?

Last season, the Brave lost two of their eight regular-season matches before dispatching the Rockets and Birmingham in the knockouts. The Southampton franchise could not have asked for much more about inaugural campaigns.

Jofra Archer
The Brave’s squad is stacked with world-class players in every department. There is quality everywhere you look, from big-hitting batters like James Vince and Marcus Stoinis to lethal pacemen like Jofra Archer, Tymal Mills, and Chris Jordan.

With stars like Tim David, Craig Overton, and Geroge Garton in their ranks, it wouldn’t be a shock if the reigning champs defended their crown in 2022.

Birmingham Phoenix (6.00)

Having claimed first place in the standings, the Phoenix can be unfortunate to have surrendered the silverware last year.

Thanks mainly to the exploits of Liam Livingstone, the Birmingham outfit finished the previous campaign with an outrageous net run rate of 1.087. Livingstone hit three half-centuries and 27 sixes to finish miles clear atop the run-scoring leaderboard.

THE HUNDRED MEN 2021 – MOST RUNS

  • Liam Livingstone (Birmingham Phoenix) – 348 runs
  • Ben Duckett (Welsh Fire) – 232 runs
  • James Vince (Southern Brave) – 229 runs
  • Moeen Ali (Birmingham Phoenix) – 225 runs
  • Glenn Phillips (Welsh Fire) – 214 runs

Alongside Livingstone, Moeen Ali starred with both bat and ball last season. Not only did the captain score the fourth-most runs in 2021, but he also picked up four wickets for his troubles. No wonder he was among the biggest buys at the 2021 IPL auction!

It is worth noting that Birmingham also has Chris Woakes as a centrally contracted player and overseas star Adam Milne. Nobody would be surprised if they fired the Phoenix to glory in 2022.

Welsh Fire (8.50)

Since I have just covered two favored men’s Hundred betting options, it’s only fair that I examine an outsider. In my eyes, Welsh Fire stands an excellent chance of upsetting the 2022 Hundred odds.

Jonny Bairstow
In Ben Duckett and Glenn Phillips, the Fire had two of the five highest-scoring batters in last year’s tournament. Captain Jonny Bairstow and centrally contracted player Ollie Pope will join Duckett and Phillips this season.

Let’s not forget that only the top four teams registered more wins than the Fire in 2021. If you’re betting on The Hundred men’s tournament in 2022, the Fire looks like a solid outside bet.

Unfortunately for the Welsh franchise, the same cannot be said for the women’s team…

The Hundred Odds 2022 (Women)

Oval Invincibles4.75
Southern Brave4.75
Birmingham Phoenix6.50
London Spirit7.50
Northern Superchargers8.00
Trent Rockets8.00
Manchester Originals8.50
Welsh Fire9.00

It’s time to check out The Hundred odds for the women’s tournament in 2022. Like the men’s, all the top cricket betting sites enable us to wager on the women’s competition.

If The Hundred 2022 odds are to be believed, the women’s tournament is set to be more competitive than the men’s tournament. Oval Invincibles and Southern Brave are viewed as joint favorites at 4.75.

Last year, the Brave lost only one other eight regular-season matches to finish five points clear at the top of the standings. However, the Invincibles clinched the inaugural crown after beating the Brave in the final.

Having claimed eight points in 2021, Birmingham Phoenix and London Spirit are also expected to challenge the women’s title in 2022.

Northern Superchargers and Trent Rockets are priced at 8.00 after finishing the previous campaign on seven points apiece. Manchester Originals also registered eight points, although their odds to win The Hundred are 8.50 this time around.

There is no denying that Welsh Fire was the weakest women’s team last year. They head into the 2022 season as underdogs after losing six of their eight matches in 2021.

What Happened in the 2021 Women’s Hundred?

Last season, the Brave dominated the women’s standings, winning seven of their eight matches to finish five points clear of the Invincibles. However, the Invincibles beat Birmingham in the Eliminator before crushing the Brave by 48 runs in the final.

THE HUNDRED 2021 STANDINGS (WOMEN)
Team Matches Wins Losses No Result Points Net Run Rate
Southern Brave 8 7 1 14 1.056
Oval Invincibles (C) 8 4 3 1 9 0.015
Birmingham Phoenix 8 4 4 8 0.186
London Spirit 8 4 4 8 0.046
Manchester Originals 8 3 4 1 7 0.016
Northern Superchargers 8 3 4 1 7 –0.041
Trent Rockets 8 3 4 1 7 –0.293
Welsh Fire 8 2 6 4 –1.017

Given that just two points separated second and seventh, any number of teams could have finished in the top three. The Spirit only missed out on the knockouts due to Birmingham’s superior net run rate.

Let’s look at the top women’s Hundred betting picks for 2022.

Best 2022 Women’s Hundred Betting Picks

As per The Hundred cricket betting odds, the Invincibles and the Brave look set to battle it out in a two-horse race for the women’s title. But will they live up to expectations? I inspect the top contenders below.

Oval Invincibles (4.75)

Although the Invincibles finished second in the standings last season, they hammered the Brave in the final. South African superstar Marizanne Kapp claimed outstanding figures of 4/9 in the showpiece.

Kapp’s final display meant that she ended the previous campaign with 11 wickets to her name. Still, Tash Farrant finished as the tournament’s leading wicket-taker – claiming 18 scalps in nine matches. Alice Capsey (10) also starred with the ball.

THE HUNDRED WOMEN 2021 – MOST WICKETS

  • Tash Farrant (Oval Invincibles) – 18 wickets
  • Sammy-Jo Johnson (Trent Rockets) – 15 wickets
  • Kirstie Gordon (Birmingham Phoenix) – 15 wickets
  • Amanda-Jade Wellington (Southern Brave) – 14 wickets
  • Kate Cross (Manchester Originals) – 12 wickets

It is also worth pointing out that Dane van Niekerk scored the most runs in last year’s women’s tournament. The Invincibles produced the leading wicket-taker, but they also produced the top run-scorer.

Boasting world-class performers in all the right areas, the Invincibles could be, well, invincible in 2022.

Southern Brave (4.75)

Amanda-Jade Wellington

It’s fair to say that the Brave was the most consistent women’s team last season. Having registered seven wins and one defeat on their way to the knockouts, few would argue that the southerners did not deserve to lift the trophy.

Despite their dominance, Charlotte Edwards’ girls crumbled in the final. They were bowled out for just 73 runs while attempting to chase down 121/6, faltering at the worst possible moment.

Still, you would be foolish to write off the Brave when betting on The Hundred women in 2022. Stars such as Amanda-Jade Wellington, Sophia Dunkley, and Smriti Mandhana could easily light up the tournament this year.

London Spirit (7.50)

London Spirit looks like a decent outside bet for the women’s Hundred in 2022. Priced at 7.50, the Londoners could be a shrewd pick if they can build on a promising inaugural campaign.

Heather Knight
Only the Brave won more regular-season matches than the Spirit last year. Trevor Griffin’s women were one of three teams to record four victories in 2021, but they agonizingly finished outside the top three due to their inferior net run rate.

The Spirit is captained by Heather Knight, one of the most experienced players in the game. With fellow internationals like Charlie Dean and Freya Davies on board, the Londoners will be confident of upsetting The Hundred betting odds.

The Hundred Predictions for 2022

Given that we only have one previous season to analyze, it is not easy to make predictions for The Hundred 2022. There were a handful of standout teams in the inaugural campaign.

In terms of the men’s tournament, the Brave and the Phoenix appear the best teams to beat in 2022. Birmingham claimed first place in last year’s standings, but the Brave beat them in the final.

As for as the women’s competition is concerned, I recommend keeping a close eye on the Invincibles and the Brave. The Brave dominated throughout the previous tournament before the Invincibles clinched the crown in the final.

Hopefully, the information in this Hundred betting guide will set you up nicely to win some wagers this summer. Check out our expert guide to betting on The Hundred for more tips and advice.
