Australia vs India 2nd Test | Best Bets to Win Money

Australia will take on India in the second Test of the four-match series at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from December 26, Saturday.

The games for the World Test Championship are ado, and the top two teams on the table are all set to face each other this boxing day. Australia dominated India in the last pink-ball Test at the Adelaide Oval, getting India all out in just 36 runs in the second innings, and then going on to win with 8 wickets left. Virat Kohli will not be playing the rest of the series and Australia has also lost Warner and Abbot to injuries, and they will not be able to play this Test.India will be looking for a comeback and the match played 2 years ago on the same ground and the same date, which was won by India and should give a boost to their morale. To make things even more interesting, I have picked out the best bets from the match to bet on and make your holiday season even more special.

Total Match Runs to be under 999.5

India and Australia are renowned for their batting prowess, but if we look at the match totals, in various games, we find this a really easy bet to figure out. In the last 5 matches played by India, the totals were as follows: 586, 733, 713, 648, 856, with an average match total of 707.2. The average of India's totals in the five games was 366.4 and this clearly speaks in favour of our bet. While Australia has a higher average, at 568.8 from their last 5 matches, their bowling is stupendous and their match totals average at 954.4 from the same games. I also looked at the last five games between the teams, where four out of five games were 5-Day matches and yet the match total runs averaged at 910.0, including their match at Melbourne Cricket Ground where the total was 961 runs in the 5 days. When we look at the venue, the average of the Totals of the last 5 matches played there is higher than 999.5, at 1075.2 but if we also factor in the fact that 4 of the 5 test matches were in the 5-day format, and do the calculation again for the 4-day format, the average is closer to 901.0 runs per match. The cherry on the cake is, you get to double your money as RoyalPanda.com has offered odds of 2.05 for Total Match runs to be under 999.5.

Australia to have the Highest Opening Partnership in the 1st innings

This bet doesn't have the greatest odds, but it is one of the safest bets in the match. If we look at the past performances by the teams, in the last three matches, India has had partnerships at an average of 14.67 from 6 innings, while they have conceded partnerships at an average of 56.2 from 5 innings in the 3 games. If we look at the same statistics for Australia, we find that the Aussies have had partnerships at an average of 49.17 from 6 innings and conceded partnerships at an average of 22.16 from their opponents in the three matches. We find similar stats when we look at their head to head results, in the last 5 matches played by the teams, India has had partnerships at an average of 17.44 from the 9 innings, while Australia has partnerships at an average of 43.0 from their 9 innings. Which clearly speaks to the safety of the bet. LeoVegas has offered odds of 1.75 for Australia to get the highest opening partnership in the first innings.

Team With Top Run Scorer (Both Innings) to be India

You might be thinking I’m deluded, to tell you to bet on this market. The odds agree with you and you stand a chance to double your money with this bet. In the last 5 head to head matches, India had the top run-scorer in all of the 5 matches, including both the matches they lost and the match they won at Melbourne Cricket Ground. India’s top scorer average from the five matches was 123.8 while Australia had an average of 67.4. While both the teams have had the top run-scorer on their side in 4 out of their previous five matches against other teams, the batting combination of Prithvi Shaw, Mayank Agarwal, Chetan Puajara, and Ajinkya Rahane should be conducive for India to get the top run-scorer in either innings. LeoVegas has offered odds of 2.08 for the Indian team to have the Top Run Scorer from either innings.
