Meanwhile, I have assorted the top three betting tips from the MID vs GLO match prediction.
Due to the unavailability of player odds in the upcoming match, the oddsmakers have offered some team odds to choose from. Take a look at the top MID vs GLO team betting tip assorted for you.
Although Gloucestershire has been consistent with their performance over the years, Middlesex has maintained their in this particular segment. They have played four matches in this ongoing season of the County Championship so far. Middlesex have managed to take the lead in first innings in three of their four games played. Meanwhile Gloucestershire could take the lead in the first innings in only one of the games.
However, looking back at the Bob Willis Trophy in 2020 Middlesex took the lead in two out of their five matches. Gloucestershire, on the other hand, could not manage to take the lead in the first innings in any of the five matches played. Back in 2019 when County was played, Middlesex had won the one match played against Gloucestershire, but Gloucestershire had taken the first innings leads there. However since the current form matters in the format being played, I will be backing Middlesex in this particular bet. Bet365.com has offered betting odds of 1.90 for Middlesex to have a first innings lead in the MID vs GLO match. Bet On Team With First Innings Lead!Claim 100% Joining Bonus!
