Here are some cricket betting tips and predictions for the upcoming series between England and Pakistan –
When betting on cricket, always do some research as with every other sport. Look at the pitch conditions and strengths and weaknesses of each team before placing a bet on the match or series.
When you are betting on a batsman or a bowler, look at his previous performances against the same opposition as well as his success rate on the ground if available. It will help you understand better and place learned bets and increase your chances of earning profits.
The England-Pakistan series is going to be a close contest. Both teams have match winners but England in their home conditions could just pip the visitors by a slight margin.
Pakistan will face the likes of Jos Buttler, Dawid Malan, Ben Stokes, Jonny Bairstow and they have been in good form internationally and will look to continue on the same. Pakistan will also have some good players in the form of Babar Azam, who is second in the T20I batting rankings behind Malan. The visitors also have a potent bowling lineup with Shaheen Afridi, Faheem Ashraf and Hasan Ali among others, who can trouble the Englishmen.
