The legendary all-rounder and Sky Bet tipster backed England to win the match at 13/8, James Anderson to be top first innings wicket-taker at 9/4 and Ian Bell in the top England first innings runscorer market at 4/1.

And Beefy is so confident England will grab a 2-1 series lead at Old Trafford he's sticking with the same bets for the crucial fourth Test, starting on Thursday.

"It's got to be another England win for me. They were magnificent last week," said the Sky Sports pundit after England squared the series 1-1.

Botham had tipped England to win the series 3-1 at 7/1 before a ball was bowled and feels the momentum is very much with Alastair Cook's men ahead of their final two clashes.

"I'd certainly be backing England to win 3-1," he added, with the correct score bet now available at 5/1 with Sky Bet.

Beefy has once again put his faith in Anderson, man-of-the-match at the Ageas Bowl, to be England’s top first-innings wicket-taker at 2/1 having landed the bet three times already in the series.

Anderson has taken 16 wickets in the series so far and returns to his home ground in tremendous form.

Bell also comes into the match in great form after a brilliant 167 at Southampton and has been 'Price Boosted' to 9/2 from 4/1 to be top runscorer.

Sky Bet are also offering a special Beefy treble for an England win, Anderson top England wicket-taker (1st inns) and Bell top England batsman (1st inns) at 33/1.

Apart from his match bets, Beefy will also be offering in-play tips and the online bookmaker will also be offering enhanced prices for some of his tips with 'Beefy's Boosts'.
