They were written off at the start of the World Cup, and couldn’t beat us once all summer, but India are the punters pick to upset Australia in Thursday’s semi-final at the SCG.

Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has received around 30% more money on $2.90 outsiders India than it has on the $1.40 favourites Australia.

In fact, 70% of all individual head to head bets have been with the Indians.

“Punters have identified India as outstanding value at the $2.90 quote in what looks like being a pretty tight semi-final. Despite the support for India, we haven’t pushed the Aussies’ price out at this stage,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.

Australia remains the $2.30 top pick to take out the tournament ahead of South Africa ($4.00), New Zealand ($4.50) and India ($6.00).
