Australia will be facing India in their third and final T20I of the season at the Sydney Cricket Ground, in Sydney on 8th December, Tuesday.
Australia won the ODIs while India cemented the win in the T20’s in the last match, bouncing back from their ODI loss. India has now won three matches in the series and Australia, on the other hand, have won two. The match was undecided till the last over when India needed 14 runs to win, but Hardik Pandya clinched the win for India with two superb sixes. The final T20 match, before we start the Test series, is expected to be just as tense and I have assorted the best 3, team bets to make money from the match.
Australia has a great batting lineup, with batsmen like Steven Smith, D’Arcy Short, Aaron Finch, and Mathew Wade batting this bet seems like a no-brainer. To get a complete understanding of the same, I looked at their previous games. The two teams have faced head-to-head in the Sydney Cricket grounds thrice now, and all the 3 times, Australia scored 15 or more boundaries.
Sydney Cricket Ground is known for being a little favourable towards the batsmen. If we look at the number of fours scored by Australia in the three matches these teams faced each other at the Sydney Cricket Ground they were: 15, 21, 16, as we can see they were all over the required boundaries. Sportsbet.io is offering odds of 1.76 for the total boundaries to be over 13.5, but if you feel like taking a little bit of a risk, sportsbet.io is offering odds of 2.00 for total boundaries to be over 14.5, and while the bet s riskier, the payoff is greater too.
This is a complicated bet to figure out, but once I knew, I had to bring you in on this successful bet. While Australia and India have had averages of 4.10 and 4.20 wides respectively, in the last 10 matches the teams have faced each other. However, these matches date back right up to 2016, when both teams were playing with different squads. They have had really precise bowling in the last 10 matches each team has played individually. With India throwing wides at an average of 2.90 in the last 10 matches, while Australia throwing wides at an average of 2.90. These numbers get even better if we look at the number of wides thrown in the last 5 matches by the two teams.
The number of wides in the last 5 matches for each of the team is as follows:
Australia: 2, 4, 2, 3, 2
India: 5, 1, 3, 3, 0
India was at throwing wides at an average of 2.40 while Australia was throwing wides at an average of 2.60. It becomes quite conclusive when we look at these statistics that the total number of wides will be less than 8.5 and LeoVegas.com has offered odds of 1.84 for the same.
Last but not the least, we have seen some superb gameplay from both the teams and T20 is where India has an advantage over the Aussies. The two teams have faced each other in a total of 21 matches. India has won 13 matches, while 8 matches were won by Australia. Which already speaks of the prowess of the Indian Cricket Team. India is also going to face the Aussies with a boosted morale on the heels of the three consecutive victories they got. Moreover, the two teams have faced thrice in the Sydney Cricket Ground and India has come out on top in all those encounters. RoyalPanda.com is offering the best odds for India at 1.83 and my money is already on India.
