West Indies are technically out of the contest, with them needing to pull off something more than extraordinary to win the Test match and retain the Wisden Trophy. England, on the other hand, have shown nerves of steel to come back from a 0-1 deficit in the Test series, and are now on the verge of winning it. In all probability, the match is likely to end on Day 4, with the visitors hanging by a thread at stumps on Day 3, with a score of 10/2. So, tomorrow is our last chance to win some cash, as we are already short of cricket action this season. So, why not make the most out of it.

Betting Tips

One of the better batsmen in the otherwise disappointing Windies batting line-up, Kraigg Braithwaite has shown nerves of steel at the top, even when others perished at the other end of the 22-yard strip. His healthy average of 34.81, including two centuries and three fifties just proves his fondness of playing against the English side. Having already scored a couple of half centuries in this series, one at Old Trafford itself, Braithwaite is well aware of the conditions. It won’t be a heckle for him to just score just 16 runs on Monday morning.

The right hander’s numbers are even better when he visits England, with him scoring 442 runs in six matches at an average of 40.18, along with a century to his name. Moreover, in the last 11 innings in the United Kingdom, the opener has scored north of 17 runs on five occasions. Braithwaite’s overall average in away matches read 31.84, which is better than the rate at which he scores at home. Everything points towards one direction, you know where?

This is a tricky one, but once you have a glance over the past records, albeit you’ll have no option but to invest on this one. Batsmen have struggled in the first half-an-hour in the ongoing match. According to this market, the Windies need to score 9 runs in the first four overs of Day 3. England, put into bat on Day 1, managed to score just 7 runs in the first four overs, while they added just 5 runs on the overnight score in the four overs on Day 2. The records suggest what we are heading for, but to substantiate even further, let me give you some additional information.

The West Indies batsmen have been pretty defensive in their approach so far and batting at a rate of 1.66 runs per over. And with literally no hope of escaping a defeat in the ongoing encounter, they are unlikely to take risks early on. To sum it up, batsmen have scored at snail’s pace in the opening minutes of each day at Old Trafford, which surely puts us in a position to earn some easy cash on Monday.

This might raise a few eyebrows going by the recent form, but there’s no doubt we are talking about a world-class batsman who is not having a good series. Even after failing to put up a single score worth mentioning, Hope’s average against England is still 34.47, with two centuries and half-tons each to his name. On the other hand, he’s always been a good traveller, having scored at a rate of 31.34, compared to 21.50 in home conditions. But wait, I have more evidence to back up my claim.

In the six matches he’s played in England, the right hander has amassed a total of 453 runs at an astounding average of 45.30 runs per innings, with a top score of 147 at Headingley, Leeds, back in 2017. Five times he’s managed to get past the 20-run mark in the above mentioned cases, that proves he’s got the temperament to stick in the middle for quite some time. With West Indies in dire straits, Hope is expected to score a responsible innings, which makes this bet a secure one.
