Latest T20 Predictions & Betting Tips

New Zealand vs England - 1st T20 - Friday, 01:00 GMT - November 1

These two teams will be sick of seeing each other across different sports by the end of the year. With the wounds of that stunning Cricket World Cup loss still very much in the minds of the New Zealand cricket team, the nation were subjected to yet another heartbreaking sporting loss at the hands of England at the Rugby World Cup as the Red Rose denied the All Blacks the chance to battle for a third-successive World Cup triumph in as many tournaments. Now, with that loss only serving to compound what has been a tough sporting year for New Zealand, their cricket team has the chance to get one over on England, although the stakes will be a lot less than in their losses to England in the latter-stages of two different sporting tournaments. 

Even though New Zealand have home advantage in this one, we feel that backing England is the right way to go here. The hosts are currently valued at 7/10 which we think is too short considering the fact England are the number two ranked T20 side in the world and are incredibly talented and explosive with bat and ball, while New Zealand sit someway short of their opponents in sixth. England have also claimed the bragging rights in three of the last four matches against New Zealand in T20’s, with wins by two runs, seven wickets and 56 runs seeing them edge to a 10-5 T20 lead over their opponents with one draw in this time. New Zealand will of course pose a real threat to this England side and should not be underestimated, but with England available at 23/20, we feel backing the side to build upon what was a supreme summer with regard to their limited overs cricket is the right way to go here. 

On the English side of things, Jonny Bairstow looked absolutely outstanding in England’s warm-up match against a New Zealand XI as he took his omission from the Test side on the chin to knock a commanding 78 not out off 45 balls to see his side home with six wickets and 11 balls to spare. Sam Curran (28 not out) and Sam Billings (28) were the other run scorers, but it was Bairstow that really shone with his six 4’s and four 6’s a very impressive tally. Throughout Bairstow’s T20 career he has been able to average an impressive 27.00 in 25 innings with three 50’s and a strike rate of 130.20. While these numbers may not sound all that impressive, T20 cricket is not designed for consistently massive scores, with the lack of time given to batsmen something that forces a do or die kind of performance, and even if a player is ‘in’ and feeling comfortable, the constant pressure to score means big shots come out more often than they might usually, meaning wickets are also a constant factor. With this in mind along with the fact that there are a number of young and inexperienced players in England’s squad, we think Bairstow will lead from the front and score the big runs, with the Three Lions desperate to get off to a winning start in New Zealand. 

New Zealand meanwhile are crammed full of superb talent with both bat and ball and will give England a real run for their money, we feel they will be led by their now influential pace-man Lockie Ferguson. Ferguson was superb right across the World Cup summer as he snared 21 wickets to finish in second in the top wicket taker standings, ahead of the likes of Jofra Archer, Jasprit Bumrah and fellow-countryman Trent Boult. The fact Ferguson is consistently bowling in the high-80’s and hitting the 90mph mark and above makes him incredibly tough to face and, when throwing in his bouncers and variations, he will give England some real problems on his own turf.

What Is T20 (Twenty20) Cricket?

T20 cricket is the most explosive and exciting form of the game, with matches short and sweet. The format sees both teams given a maximum of 2 overs (120 balls) to bat, and 20 overs to bowl. With so little time out in the middle, batsmen are rarely given the chance to take a few overs to get their eye in, which culminates in big shots, cartwheeling wickets, and outrageous catches. While Test and ODI cricket have its merits, T20 games are the most exciting.

Many of the most exciting and watched tournaments in the game are played in the T20 format, with the IPL (Indian Premier League) perhaps the biggest club competition, drawing in the best players and huge crowds both in the stadium and at home. 

This excitement can be enhanced when in conjunction with placing some bets on the game, with the pre-match and In-Play options massive. 

T20 Match Betting Tips

There are so many potential markets that can be used when it comes to betting on T20 internationals. This glut of markets can make it quite confusing to know where you should be looking at what the markets offer, but we here at Bettingpro provide a guide to each of the markets that appear most in our Cricket and T20 previews.

Match Winner 

The easiest market to understand. You will simply back the team you think will win, or if the match will end in a draw. This market can offer good value if it is a game the bookmakers perceive to be a close run thing, with both sides evenly matched, while there will be little value in backing the overwhelming favourites to come through against a side that supposedly has no chance. 

Top Team Batsman and Top Team Bowler

While these are two separate markets, they work under the same basic idea. For both markets you simply back the batsman or bowler from one of the teams to outplay their teammates. This market tends to offer good value even on the players most likely to score the most runs or take the most wickets, meaning it can provide a decent pay-out.

Highest Opening Partnership

This market will see you back which of the two opening partnerships you think will top score in the game. It is always worth taking a look at the openers though, as some are specialists in simply getting their team going with a quick-fire 30 before being dismissed, while others look to get in and stay in, scoring runs quickly but taking fewer risks.

Top Batsman

Like the Team Top Batsman market, but with a lot more danger. The Top Batsman market allows you to get more attractive odds on the batsman you think will top score, but this is because he must out-score his own teammates and the opposition too. Therefore, if Jos Buttler scores 63, more than his teammates, but Virat Kohli notches 71, then you would lose your stake. 

Highest First 6 Overs

In Test Cricket this is a market that will generally see only a few runs between the two sides, with the pace of the game far slower. In T20 cricket this can also be the case with the two sides very close in the scoring, but they will have scored a lot more runs in that time as it is more than a quarter of their entire innings. If you are backing a team with explosive player in the top order to outscore their opponents you should be careful, as many a player has been stung by trying to go big too early, seeing their wicket tumble, and forcing their team to go on the defensive for a while, thus seeing the runs dry up.

Man Of The Match 

This market allows you to bet on who you think will win the Man of the Match award. This could be given to a batsman that scores a huge century, a bowler that takes a five-for, or for an all-rounder that takes three wickets and scores 60 runs. With so many potential winners in this market, a bit of luck is vital.

First Wicket Method

With the batsman looking to go big from the off, wickets are usually something that fall regularly. The First Wicket Method market lets you bet on how it will fall, be it bowled, caught, stumped, run-out, LBW or caught.
