Spreadwise: IG still have faith in Sri Lanka.
IG stand alone in making Sri Lanka favourites to win the first Test against England when play resumes on the final day at Lord's this morning, writes Ed Hawkins.
Cantor and Sporting both make England market leaders at
10-11.5 to complete a remarkable comeback after the hosts closed on 321-2.
The valiant response from England after following-on has left Nasser Hussain's side on course for a draw.
They wiped out their deficit against Sri Lanka thanks in the most part to a brilliant Michael Vaughan century and will resume this morning 41 runs ahead.
England's second-innings runs quotes for England are of interest.
A buy at 465 with either IG or Sporting could prove profitable, as England would be only 185 runs ahead at that point and may want more.
Recommendation: No bet
