As we gear up for the Day 4 action of the first Test, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the ENG vs NZ 1st Test head-to-head encounter.
Mentioned below is the top team bet from the ENG vs NZ Day 4 head-to-head contest.
England are in a strong position in the match after leaking 553 runs on the first two days of the match. Joe Root and Ben Foakes will be starting from their overnight scores of 163* and 24*. With the two batters set in the middle, scoring over 2.5 runs should not be a difficult task for the duo. The two had partnered for 120 runs in the second innings of the Lord's Test to help England win the match by five wickets and take a 1-0 lead in the 3-match series. Root and Foakes stayed unbeaten on 115 and 32 runs respectively in the match.
Also, England will be looking to score some quick runs to get a handy lead on New Zealand before putting them to bat and try to get a result from the match. Joe Root, the highest run-scorer in the World Test Championship 2021-23, is making batting look easy and New Zealand bowlers hardly seem to bother him. Root will be on strike at the start of Day 4. Considering all the scenarios, it's almost certain that England will score over 2.5 runs in the first over (115th of England innings) of the Day 4 on Monday.
If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 2.22 on the same and place your bet on England to score over 2.5 runs 2.5 runs in the 115th over of their first innings from the ENG vs NZ Day 4 head-to-head encounter.

Joe Root has hit two back-to-back hundreds in the series now. After scoring match-winning 115 unbeaten runs in the second Lord's Test, Joe Root his 27th Test hundred at Trent Bridge on Sunday and equalled the tallies from his contemporaries, Virat Kohli and Steve Smith. With 1464 runs in 14 matches at an average of 63.65, Root is already the highest run-scorer in the current WTC 2021-23 cycle. In fact, he is the only player to score over 1000 runs.
Root has now scored a total of 1222 runs from 14 matches at an average of 53.13 against New Zealand now. The 31-year-old has scored as many as five hundreds against the Kiwis. At Trent Bridge, Joe Root has already registered his best score of 163* on Sunday. Overall, he has scored 770 runs in seven matches at an average of 85.55 at the venue.
Overall, the number two ranked Test batsman in the world has scored 10178 runs from 119 Test matches at an average of 50.38. It's very likely that Root will score over 206.5 runs in the first innings of the second Test. If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.76 for Joe Root to score over 206.5 runs from the ENG vs NZ Day 4 head-to-head encounter.
Ben Foakes is unbeaten on 24 not out at the end of Day 3. He was unbeaten on 32 when England won the Lord's Test by five wickets. Foakes' last five scores in Test cricket read as - 24*, 32*, 7, 2 and 7.
Overall, he has scored 545 runs at an average of 28.68 in his 12 match Test career (excluding ongoing Test) which has seen him score a hundred and a fifty so far. The ball is comparatively new and we can expect something from the very talented Kiwi quicks on Monday morning. Ben Foakes will face a testing time against the likes of Tim Southee, Trent Boult and Kyle Jamieson who would be giving it their all to bring their team back in the contest in the second Test. Scoring over 51.5 runs might get difficult for Foakes in the first innings.
If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for Ben Foakes to score under 51.5 runs from the ENG vs NZ Day 4 head-to-head encounter.
