New Zealand v Pakistan 1st T20I | Bets that can Make you Rich

New Zealand and Pakistan will commence the series with the 1st T20I at Eden Park in Auckland on the 18th December, Friday.

Pakistan cricket team has arrived in New Zealand, and are all set for their first T20I of their tour. The plan is to have 3 T20 matches, before moving on to the Test matches fortheWorldTest Championship. The two teams last faced each other two years ago in Dubai, and Pakistan has won the last 5 matches in the format between the teams. New Zealand is just coming on the heels of their victory against the Windies and they have a good track record on their Home grounds. I have gone through all the bets and picked the best three bets from the match, which are most likely to win you money.

Mohammad Hafeez to score over 23.5 runs

The veteran from Pakistan has 91 T20I innings to his name, with a total of 2183 runs scored he has a career average of 26.95. I thought you might need some more convincing than that, so here are the statistics: Hafeez has faced the Kiwis in a total of 14 matches, and he has scored a total of 412 runs at an average of 34.33. Moreover, he played 2 matches at Eden Park in Auckland and scored 85 runs from the matches, at an average of 42.50. His average score from the last 10 innings was 41.57 and he has had a stunning year with the bat in all, with 865 runs scored from 26 innings, at an average of 48.06 in the year. LeoVegas.com has offered odds of 1.86 for Mohammad Hafeez to score over 23.5 runs, and with his statistics, this bet is a winner.

Devon Conway to score over 23.5 runs

I have found yet another winning market with this bet. While the Kiwi is new to T20 International cricket, with his debut match being the first match in the previous series, but in the two games he has played, he has shown us why he belongs in the team. His two matches against West Indies, which are his first two international Twenty20 matches, have had an average of 106.00. He has played a lot of domestic cricket and his T20 career average is 40.82 runs from 70 innings. He has been in spectacular form this entire year, racking up 417 runs from the 8 innings he played, averaging at 69.50 While this is set to be his first match batting against Pakistan, he has played one match in Eden Park, where he scored 41 runs. Leovegas.com has offered odds of 1.86 for Devon Conway to score above 23.5 runs and when it comes down to it, he is bound to deliver.

Total Match Sixes to be under 16.5

With the odds of losing this bet being so minimal, this is one of the best bets of the game! When we look at previous matches played between the two teams, the total number of sixes hit in the last 5 head to head matches were 55(7, 11, 9, 14, 14) with an average of 11.00, these teams were not able to hit over 16.5 sixes at all in the 5 matches. We further checked the teams’ records at Eden Park and they have faced each other twice at the grounds hitting 14 and 16 total match sixes in the two games. I further checked the last 5 matches for the teams and Pakistan has hit a total of 27 sixes, at an average of 5.4, and they have conceded a total of 22 sixes in the 5 games at an average of 4.4. New Zealand has hit a total of 43 sixes at 8.6 and conceded 45 sixes at 9.0. These numbers clearly speak volumes and RoyalPanda.com has offered odds of 1.80 for the total number of 6’s hit to be under 16.5, which is a winner.

My Picks:

Mohammad Hafeez to score over 23.5 runs - @1.86 (LeoVegas.com)

Devon Conway to score above 23.5 runs - @1.86 (LeoVegas.com)

Total Match 6’s Hit to be under 16.5 - @1.80 (RoyalPanda.com)
