Yorkshire and Kent will play the 42nd match of the County Championship 2021 in Round 5. The match will commence on Thursday, May 6 and will be held at Headingley in Leeds. I have managed to gather three of the best YOR vs KEN match predictions and betting tips.
Four rounds of the County Championship have been played, and Yorkshire has surpassed Kent in winning more number of matches. Yorkshire drew their first match against Glamorgan and went on to win the rest three matches against Kent, Sussex and Northamptonshire respectively. Kent tied their first match against Northamptonshire and lost the rest of the three matches to Yorkshire, Lanchasire and Glamorgan simultaneously. Both the teams are playing under Group 3 in the ongoing season. While Yorkshire is perched comfortably in the second position on the points table, Kent is at the bottom of the table. Kent has to look forward to a positive result in the coming round to keep going in the tournament. While these two teams gear up for their second encounter, I have managed to gather three of the best betting tips from the YOR vs KET match prediction.
The bookmakers are yet to come up with player bets as of yet for any of the matches from the County Championship. The bookmakers believe that Yorkshire are going to reign in this upcoming fixture. However, I did manage to pick three of the best team bets from the YOR vs KET match prediction for you to bet on.
Let me start off with a straight forward bet. Like I mentioned earlier, Yorkshire have started off well with a drawn encounter against Glamorgan. In round 2 of the County Championship 2021, Yorkshire came out all guns blazing at Kent. They won that fixture by a margin of 200 runs. In round three they again defeated Sussex by 48 runs and simultaneously in round 4 Northamptonshire was beaten by a slight margin of 1 run. Yorkshire have maintained their momentum since the Bob Willis Trophy’2020. The teams played under different groups. While Yorkshire featured from the North group, Kent was playing under the South group. Yorkshire were leading the points table with three wins and no loss out of the five matches played.
Kent however did a fair enough job in the previous season of the County Championship back in 2019 and Bob Willis Trophy in 2020. In the County Champion they played under Division One, winning 5 and drawing 4 matches. However in the Bob Willis Trophy again they won three matches and drew one. But not to ignore the fact that they have been struggling in the County Championship 2021 season. They have not managed to win a single match this season, out of the four played and drawing one match against Northamptonshire.

Yorkshire will be our favorite again for the second bet. Yorkshire opener Adam Lyth is their highest run getter with 515 runs under his belt in four matches at an average of 73.57. Kent is led by someone by Daniel Bell-Drummond, who has been sensational in the English county seasons. But unfortunately, he has been averaging just 26.50 with the bat in the ongoing season. Jordan Cox is Kent’s highest run getter so far in the ongoing edition of the County Championship. He has scored 234 runs in four matches at an average of 33.42. While the top batter of Yorkshire has two centuries and three half centuries to his name. The top batter for Kent has one hundred and one half century earned this season. Sportsbet.io is offering odds of 1.67 for Yorkshire to be the side with top batsmen against Kent in the YOR vs KET match prediction. Bet On Team With Top Batter!Claim 100% Joining Bonus!
Am closing my last bet with Yorkshire yet again. Adam Lyth and Ian Holland have opened the four matches for Yorkshire. They have together put in 107 runs from their opening partnership. Kent on the other hand has captain Daniel Bell Drummond and Jordan Cox who are currently opening the matches for the team. Drummond and Cox have accumulated mere 89 runs from their partnership so far. Where Yorkshire is averaging at 26.75 from their first dismissal score, Kent are at 22.25 runs per match.
Meanwhile Kent has had a dip in their performance since the Bob Willis Trophy, Yorkshire have levelled up their game. In the BWT’20 season, Kent had racked 177 runs from their opening partnership opened by Drummond and Cox. Yorkshire back then opened by Lyth and Kohler had 97 runs from five matches played. Clearly, Yorkshire has a better chance of winning this bet.
