After thrashing Scotland 2-0 in the T20I series, New Zealand will take on Scotland in the first and only ODI on Sunday, July 31 at the Grange Cricket Club Ground, Raeburn Place, Edinburgh.
The two have played a total of three ODI matches in the past. New Zealand have won on all the three occasions. They last locked horns in the format in 2015. While New Zealand have won each of their last five ODI matches, Scotland have won three. A win in the upcoming match can be Scotland's third consecutive win on the trot. They have defeated Namibia and Nepal in their last two matches. As we gear up for the first and only ODI, I have brought to you the best three betting tips from the SCO vs NZ 1st ODI head-to-head encounter.
Finn Allen, Martin Guptill and Glenn Phillips are my top three player betting tips for the SCO vs NZ 1st and only ODI. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.
New Zealand opener Finn Allen recently made his ODI debut against Ireland and scored 99 runs in three matches at an average of 33 and strike rate of 104.21. In his debut he managed to score six runs. In the second match he amassed 60 off 58 before scoring 28-ball 33 in the final ODI. Allen has looked in his recent T20I outings as well. He scored 35 off 20 in the second T20I against Ireland. In the series opener versus Scotland on July 27, the 23-year-old scored 101 runs off just 56 balls. The right-hand opener is looking in good touch and the ODI match will give him more time to settle in against going berserk against a very inexperienced Scotland bowling line-up. Finn would also look to capitalise on the opportunity to make his mark in the ODIs and seal his place before the big guns return. There are very high chances of Allen scoring over 31.5 runs in the first and only ODI. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match and grab the odds of 1.87 for Finn Allen to score over 31.5 runs from the SCO vs NZ 1st and only ODI head-to-head encounter.
Like Finn Allen, Glenn Phillips also made his ODI debut against Ireland and scored 101 runs at an average of 33.66 and strike rate of 102.02. His first three ODI innings have seen him score 38, 16 and 47 runs. The 25-year-old was in sublime form in following T20I matches, scoring 69*, 23 and 56* not out runs respectively. In the one T20I match he played against Scotland, he scored 23 off 16 balls. The right-handers 50-match List A career has seen him score 1728 runs at an average of 36. He has five hundred and three fifties to his name in List A. More hundreds than fifties signifies a solid conversion rate. An upbeat Phillips will look to carry forward his good form and play another impressive against a lacklustre Scotland team. Scoring over 28.5 runs should not be difficult for the middle-order batter. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Glenn Phillips to score over 28.5 runs from the SCO vs NZ 1st and only ODI head-to-head encounter.
Kyle Coetzer gave up Scotland captaincy last month and announced his retirement from the shortest format of the game just ahead of the T20I series against New Zealand. Eyes will be on him when he takes the field against the Blackcaps on Sunday. The 38-year-old has played 77 matches and scored 2959 runs at an average of 41.67. He has five hundred and 20 fifties to his name in the format. The right-hand batter scored 44 unbeaten in his last ODI outing against Nepal on July 17. Earlier in May, he played a blazing knock which saw his score 108 not out runs against UAE. 74 runs had come against PNG in April. Big innings from him have come but after a gap of three to four matches every time. A tad bit of inconsistency has been there. But after retiring from the shortest format, he is expected to bring down all his focus on the 50-over format and enjoy his cricket. At the Grange Cricket Club Ground in Edinburgh, he has played 16 matches and scored 776 runs at an average of 51.73. Under familiar conditions, one of Scotland's most experienced batters is expected to score over 22.5 runs. If you feel the same, head over to 1XBET and grab the odds of 1.832 for Kyle Coetzer to score over 22.5 runs from the SCO vs NZ 1st and only ODI head-to-head encounter.
