The seamer, who has been rested for the five-match series, believes that the much-changed squad can continue the good work started by the Test side.
"Anytime you can beat Australia is a good thing," Anderson told Sky Sports News.
"The guys going in to the side will want to win and it's ultra-competitive against Australia every time you play against them.
"It's a great opportunity to keep the momentum going from the Test series and also a great opportunity for the guys coming in to the side who haven't played a lot of one day cricket to get a lot of experience."
The first match of the ODI series takes place on Friday at Headingley.
