NED vs WI 1st ODI Predictions & Betting Tips

In a historic first, West Indies are touring Netherlands for the first time for a bilateral ODI series which will kick start from Tuesday, May 31. The match will begin from 2:30 PM IST at the VRA Ground in Amstelveen.

The second and third match of the series will be played on June 2 and June 4 respectively. Pieter Seelaar will be seen leading the host team, while Nicholas Pooran will marshal the West Indies troop. West Indies have travelled to the European nation with a 15-man squad including the likes of Shai Hope, Kyle Mayers, Rovman Powell and Romario Shepherd. As we gear up for the first ODI, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the NED vs WI 1st ODI head-to-head encounter.

NED vs WI Team Bet:

Mentioned below is the top team bet from the NED vs WI 1st ODI head-to-head contest.

West Indies to win

Both West Indies and Netherlands have lost each of their last five ODI matches and will look for a change in fortune when they clash against each other on Tuesday, May 31. Netherland were whitewashed by New Afghanistan in their 3-match ODI series in January before receiving the same treatment at the hands of New Zealand in March-April. The margin of last three defeats for Netherlands are -- 115 runs, 118 runs and 7-wicket (with 69 balls to spare). On the flip side, West Indies lost their 3-match home ODI series against Ireland 1-2 before facing a clean sweep at the hands of India in February. West Indies and Ireland have played two ODI matches till date. They won the one in 2007 by 10 wickets and 213 balls remaining. They won the second one in 2011 by 215 runs. The strength of the West Indies side can see them register another comfortable win against the Netherlands. Netherlands last played an ODI match at the VRA Ground in August 2018 and they lost that match to Nepal. Overall, they have played 13 matches at the venue, losing eight and winning just four. One match ended in a tie. Against an inexperienced Netherlands side, West Indies are clear favourites to win the NED vs WI 1st ODI despite the absence of Kieron Pollard, who recently announced his retirement from international cricket, Andre Russell, Shimron Hetmyer and Sunil Narine. However, the likes of captain Nicholas Pooran, Rovman Powell and Romario Shepherd are coming fresh from IPL 2022 and should prove enough for the hosts. West Indies would enter the match as clear favourites and if you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the best odds of 1.09 and place your bet on West Indies from the NED vs WI 1st ODI head-to-head encounter.

NED vs WI Player Bet:

Nicholas Pooran and Brandon King are my top two player betting tips for the NED vs WI 1st ODI. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

Nicholas Pooran to score 50 runs

Nicholas Pooran, the newly-appointed captain of West Indies white-ball squads, will look to celebrate in style and change his team's fortune with a stellar performance in the first NED vs WI 1st ODI. The 26-year-old batsman has played a total of 37 ODIs, scoring 1121 runs at an average of 40.03. The southpaw is yet to play a match against Netherlands. His last ODI fifty came seven innings ago in July 2021. Pooran's last five scores in the 50-over format read -- 34, 8, 18, 2 and 1. In fact, he scored just a single fifty in 2021. However, Nicholas Pooran looked solid for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the IPL 2022. In his 14 matches, he scored 306 runs including two fifties at an average of 38.25. In the three match T20I series against India ahead of the IPL 2022, Pooran looked in sublime form scoring 61, 62 and 61 runs respectively. His exploits in India are expected to keep him in good stead on the tour of Netherlands. The added responsibility of captaincy can further motivate Nicholas Pooran to hit at least a fifty in the opener. If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 2.34 for Nicholas Pooran to score fifty runs from the NED vs WI 1st ODI head-to-head encounter.

Brandon King to score under 27.5 runs

West Indies' 27-year-old opener Brandon King has played a total of seven ODIs since his debut in 2019. The right-hand batsman has scored 142 runs in the format with an average of 20.28. His run tally in 35 List A matches accounts for 788 at a below-par average of 23.17. The Jamaica-born was part of the West Indies squad which travelled to India for the white-ball series in February this year. He featured in all the three ODIs for his team but contributed with 13, 18 and 14 runs only. His last six T20I scores of 22, 4, 34, 26, 10 and 0 -- also don't help his cause. King has played only one first-class match after the completion of India tour. The match which concluded on May 20 same him score unbeaten 119 off 154 balls but under the swinging conditions in Netherland, scoring over 27.5 runs will be difficult for Brandon King. Our affiliate partner Pari Match is offering the odds of 1.87 for the same. So waste no time and head to the Pari Match website to place your bet on Brandon King from the NED vs WI 1st ODI head-to-head encounter.
