Hampshire will lock horns with Essex to play the 2nd game of the Royal London ODI Cup 2021 season. This match is being hosted at Hampshire Bowl in Southampton on July 22, Thursday. I have managed to assort three of the best betting tips from the HAM vs ESS match prediction.
Hampshire must not have forgotten that defeat in the final of The Royal London Cup 2019 season. Somerset clinched a thrilling win in that game to thwart Hampshire to win the trophy for the second time in a row. With reinvigorated enthusiasm, the Royal London ODI Cup is back and Hampshire would want to begin on a winning note against Essex, who have had an okay-ish season.
Essex had a very poor season the last time around winning just 2 out of their 8 games. They finished just ahead of the bottom-placed Surrey. They have not fared well in the Vitality Blast T20 2021 season as well. They have not qualified for the next round of the County Championship as well. Considering the effort they have put so far, Hampshire are likely to come out on top. While they get ready to lock horns, let me take you through the top betting tips from the HAM vs ESS match prediction.
The odds for the team bets are of course quite low because Hampshire will start the game as favourites. Thus, the player bets are the viable option in such scenarios. Tom Aslop, Tom Westley and Alastair Cook are the players to watch out for from the HAM vs ESS match prediction.
The Hampshire bred Tom Aslop is my first choice today since James Vince went missing from the bets. After graduating from the Hampshire Cricket Academy, Tom Aslop has played a fair amount of cricket for Hampshire across formats. He has already 48 List A matches and has 1465 runs at an average of 32.55. That is exactly what we are looking for as we head into this fixture between Hampshire and Essex.
He played 10 matches in the previous edition of the Royal London ODI Cup and managed to score 390 runs at an average of 39.00. He even scored a couple of centuries in the process to enhance his claim with the bat. The 25-year-old has done decently in the ongoing season of the County Championship as well. He has maintained an average of 32.50 there. Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for Tom Aslop to score over 29.5 runs in the HAM vs ESS match prediction.
Next up we have the Essex man Tom Westley. I am quite certain about this Essex bred cricketer as he has been on top of his game in recent times. The 32-year-old has done well in the ongoing season of the Vitality Blast T20 as he has maintained an average of almost 29.00 there. Overall, Westley has played 88 List A matches in his career so far, and has managed to score 2853 runs at an average of 36.57.
In the previous season of the Royal London ODI Cup, Westley played 8 matches scoring 373 runs at an average of 46.62. The last time when Westley played against Hampshire in the Royal London ODI Cup, he finished with a score of 48 runs from 67 balls. Not to forget that Essex had won that game courtesy of some brilliant batting. Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for Tom Westley to score over 29.5 runs in the HAM vs ESS match prediction.
Last but not the least, we have the legendary Alastair Cook as our last bet. But I am afraid I am not going to speak very highly off him. Because the market that I have chosen is quite tricky but I am sure it is going to work in our favour considering the England legend has not been in form this summer. He may have played 168 List A matches and has 6055 runs at an average of 39.06 but he has not fared well with his magical batting prowess in recent times.
Red-ball cricket is his forte and he has not lived up to his standard in the ongoing season of the County Championship as well. The southpaw played 10 games and has been scoring at an average of 27.53. In the previous season of the Royal London Cup, Cook played 8 matches and scored 204 runs at an average of 25.50. The left-handed batsman scored 17 runs in the last head-to-head battle between Hampshire and Essex. Dafabet is offering odds of 1.87 for Alastair Cook to score under 32.5 runs in the HAM vs ESS match prediction.
