South Africa will be playing against England in their 1st ODI of the three-match series at Boland Park in Paarl, South Africa on 6th December, Sunday.
The England tour of South Africa is underway, the first match was postponed from the 4th because a player tested positive for Covid-19, and after a whole round of testing the match is all set to take place on Sunday. The other two matches are set to take place on Monday and Wednesday. After completely dominating South Africa with 3-0, England will try to replicate the feat in ODIs now while South Africa will be fighting hard for a much-needed win on their home turf. The stage is set and the match is going to be thunderous, and as such, I have assorted the three top player bets for you to bet on and make money from the match.
The England captain has a career average of 39.57 from 225 innings and has racked up 7598 runs in his 15 year ODI career. Eoin Morgan has played 21 innings against South Africa in ODI’s and has an average of 35.41 with 602 runs under his belt. He had a mind-boggling average of 48.00 in the three T20 matches played by the two teams last month and if he can score that high in T20s we know he can decimate the bowlers in ODIs too. His average in the last 5 ODIs he played is 38.8. Sportsbet.io has offered odds of 1.85 for Eoin Morgan to score over 29.5 runs and this bet is as good as money in the bank.
The English opener is a formidable batsman. He was a part of the world cup team last year, and he was a big part in helping England get the cup. His performances recently though haven’t been up to the mark. While Jason Roy has a career average of 40.03 from the 89 ODI innings he has played in the last 5 years, his average against South Africa from 11 innings is just 19.63. In the last 10 games against South Africa, he was able to score over 30.5 runs just twice. His performance in the T20’s against South Africa was also poor with an average of just 10 runs from the three matches. Most importantly his scores in the last 5 ODIs were: 0, 21, 3, 1, 0, at an average of 5.00, where he got out on duck twice and wasn’t able to cross even 22 runs, which completely shows why he wouldn’t be able to score over 30.5 runs. Sportsbet.io has offered odds of 1.85 for Jason Roy to score under 30.5 runs and this is a sure thing.
This is yet another winning bet. Quinton de Kock has been an essential player for the South African team for the last 4 years, he has a career average of 44.65 runs from 121 innings played and has scored a total of 5135 runs in his 7-year career. He has come out to bat against the English team in 12 matches and has an average of 65.27 with 3 half-centuries and 3 centuries scored! His performance in the T20’s against England was also above par with an average of 25.66 in the 3 T20 matches. His average in the last 10 ODIs played is adequate at 34.7, and with his current form, he will definitely wrangle a score over 34.5 runs. LeoVegas.com is offering odds of 1.86 for Quinton de Kock to score over 34.5, and this looks like it’s bound to happen.
