England v South Africa 3rd Test Betting Odds, Tips & Predictions (September 8-12 11:00 BST)

England will be looking to end their home summer series against South Africa with a win before heading to Pakistan.

Ben Stokes’ men are currently level at 1-1 with the Proteas after two Test matches with the third one taking place at the Oval this week.

South Africa won the first Test in convincing style as they hammered the hosts by an innings and 12 runs. England were embarrassed in that opening Test, but they soon bounced back.

They recorded a convincing win of their own in the second Test as they won by an innings and 85 runs with Stokes and Ben Foakes both scoring centuries.

England were ruthless at Old Trafford with Jimmy Anderson taking three wickets in each innings to end up with six overall.

Jonny Bairstow has been ruled out of the third Test and the upcoming T20 World Cup after picking up a bizarre injury while playing golf. He has been replaced by Ben Duckett for this match, while Harry Brook is in line for his Test debut.

Confidence will be high in the England camp, and although the Test is in London, I cannot see the home side losing. I am not a fan of Test matches in London. There is no atmosphere and England seem to struggle when put under pressure at the Oval or Lord’s.

I am backing them to keep their composure. Joe Root has struggled to score big runs since stepping down as captain. I think he will go well in the third Test, but I am not backing him to top score.

Stokes was almost unplayable in the third Test, scoring 103 runs from 163 deliveries with six fours and three sixes. Back him to top score in the first innings.

When South Africa bat, I expect Keegan Petersen to add to the 87 runs he has already scored by finally getting a big score.
