New Zealand and Pakistan will play their second T20I of the series at Seddon Park in Hamilton on Sunday, the 20th of December.
Pakistan cricket team lost their first match to New Zealand at Eden Park. The match was dominated by the batting of Tim Seifert and the bowling of debutante Jacob Duffy, who went on to win the player of the match. Pakistan had given the Kiwis a target of 153 runs which was covered easily, and New Zealand won with 5 wickets and 7 balls remaining. The odds to bet on New Zealand might be too low to bet on, but the game is filled with exciting possibilities and I have assorted out the three best team bets from the game so that it's a profitable match for you.
I have found a winning bet for you with this one! 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 (14, 7, 11, 9, 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 Seddon Park and they have faced each other twice at the grounds hitting 12 and 18 total match sixes in the two games. I further checked the last 5 matches for the teams and Pakistan has hit a total of 30 sixes, at an average of 6.0, and they have conceded a total of 20 sixes in the 5 games at an average of 4.0. New Zealand has hit a total of 45 sixes at 9.0 and conceded 45 sixes at 9.0. These numbers clearly speak volumes and LeoVegas.com has offered odds of 1.79 for the total number of 6's hit to be under 17.5, which is a winner.
New Zealand has a volley of openers, Munro, Williamson, Siefert, Guptil, and Conway have all come out as the openers in some games but despite the variety, New Zealand scores pretty well in their opening partnerships. In the last 5 head to head matches between the teams, New Zealand had an average opening partnership of 28.8. The real cincher for this bet comes if we look at New Zealand’s last 5 matches at Seddon Park. In the last 5 matches played at Seddon Park, New Zealand has amassed a massive opening score total of 449 runs( 47, 80, 78, 165, 79) at an average of 89.8, they scored way above the required target in all the innings. One of these innings was played against Pakistan, where the Kiwis had scored the target of 165 runs without losing a wicket. Sportsbet.io has offered odds of 1.85 for New Zealand to have an opening partnership over 23.5 runs.
I have to tell you, this bet is not the easiest to spot, but if you read ahead, you will realize how sure this bet is. The two teams have scored a total of 122 fours in their last 5 matches, at an average of 24.4 while this is slightly lower than our required target, none of these matches took place in Seddon Park, which is a much faster pitch. At Seddon Park, on average New Zealand has scored 14.4 fours and conceded 13.8 from 5 matches, while Pakistan has scored 11.00 and conceded 16.00 from 2 matches. Their average fours scored from the 2 matches they have played being 27.00. Not only that, from the last 5 matches, Pakistan has scored 65 fours at an average of 13.0 and conceded 74 fours at an average of 14.8 (Total average: 27.8), New Zealand has a similar trajectory, having scored 75 fours from 5 matches they have an average of 15.0 and have conceded a little less at an average of 11.2. These numbers show that the fours will most likely be higher than 25.5. Leovegas.com has offered odds of 1.84 for total fours to be higher than 15.5.
