Cricket Betting Tips:

So, you love to fill your time with cricket wagering. That not just keeps you entertained but also helps earn. Let’s walk you through cricket betting tips for the South Africa tour of the West Indies.

Keep an Eye on the Pitch:

The pitch behaviour often determines the outcome of a match. Traditionally, the West Indies pitches favour pace and bounce and might deteriorate as the match progresses. Prefer someone like Fabian Allen or Dwayne Bravo for Top Bowler and Top Team Bowler markets, especially in white-ball cricket. They are adept at bowling at the death and can give you wickets aplenty.

Don’t Ignore the Underdog:

South Africa is a balanced team at least on paper, while West Indies has the home advantage. The Protease is most likely to win the test series but the T20 series can go either way. You can rely on the underdog, West Indies in the shorter format to pull off an upset. Remember, the underdogs carry irresistible odds that can be capitalized for big returns. But some caution is required.

Compare the Odds:

Different books offer different odds. Even a negligible difference in odds can make a difference to your payouts. One of the best cricket betting tips would be to shop the market for the best odds. Shortlist at least ten books on their odds and then choose wisely. Betting with multiple books at the same time can be considered. Also, look for bonuses, as extra savings never hurt.

Predictions for Fantasy Leaguers:

South Africa seems to be a stronger team in tests and likely to win the test series convincingly. The real contest would be the 5 T20s where both teams are head-to-head. Kagiso Rabada should be a part of your team for fantasy cricket matches. He can rattle batsmen with pace, bounce, movement, and accuracy. Fabian Allen and Dwayne Bravo can be good options too.

Andre Russell makes sense, as he can fetch you points with both, bat and ball. He can be an ideal candidate for captaincy as well. For wicket-keeper batsman, look no further than Quinton de Kock. George Linde, the left-arm orthodox bowler, can be considered as a spinning option.
