ESS vs HAM Match 27 South Group Predictions & Betting Tips

The 20th edition of the T20 Blast is underway from May 25, and it's time for match number 27 between Essex and Hampshire (ESS vs HAM). The match will be played at the County Ground in Chelmsford and will commence from 11:30 PM PM IST on Tuesday, May 31. Essex have won out of their two matches so far, while Hampshire are yet to get the taste of victory after two games.

In the last season, Sussex and Hampshire qualified for the knockouts after finishing at the third and fourth spot respectively in the league stage. The two teams won six matches each in the South Group league matches. They won their respective quarter-final matches but lost to their opponents in the semi-finals. In the Vitality Blast 2022, Essex are placed after one win in two games, whereas Hampshire are at the bottom of 9-team South Group points table, having lost both their matches. As we gear up for match 27 of the English T20 league, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the ESS vs HAM match 27 head-to-head encounter.

ESS vs HAM Team Bet:

Mentioned below is the top team bet from the ESS vs HAM head-to-head contest.

Hampshire to win

Hampshire might have lost both their opening matches in the Vitality Blast 2022, but on Tuesday, they look set for their first win of the season. Reasons for it are plenty. Essex have managed to win only one of their last five matches against Hampshire. They faced defeats in both the matches of 2021. Overall, the two teams have played 37 matches against each other. Hampshire have won 15 and Essex 14. However, at the County Ground in Chelmsford, Essex lead the head-to-head record 8-6. Moreover, Hampshire have won two out of their last five matches, while Essex managed a win after three consecutive defeats but lost again in their last encounter. Hampshire's batting unit in the presence of James Vince, Joe Weatherley, Liam Dawson and James Fuller looks way more stronger than that of Essex who lack any major T20 name in their side. Notably, none of their batter has scored over 300 runs in the 2021 edition of the Vitality blast as well. Pacer Brad Wheal, who has picked four wickets in two matches, Australia international Nathan Ellis and experienced Chris Wood form a decent pace attack which can prove to be fatal against the Essex batting line-up. Hampshire look perfectly warmed up for their first win of the season. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.90 and place your bet on Hampshire from the ESS vs HAM head-to-head encounter.

ESS vs HAM Player Bets:

James Vince and Daniel Sams are my top two player betting tips for the ESS vs HAM match 27. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

James Vince to score high

James Vince led from the front and scored 47 off 38 balls while chasing 164 during his team Hampshire's first match of the Vitality Blast 2022 against Middlesex. It felt like the 31-year-old would get better in the second match against Somerset but unfortunately he could score only 12 runs off 14 balls as his side lost their second consecutive match. On Tuesday, the Hampshire captain will have another opportunity in front of him to score big and get his team on the points sheet. Going by his records ahead of the T20 tournament, there is no reason why James Vince cannot score high against Sussex. Days before entering the competition, Vince scored a hundred and a few fifties in the County Championship 2022. The right-hander was also part of Pakistan Super League 2021-22 where he scored 107 runs in six matches at an average of 21.40. In January, the Hampshire captain was part of the England T20I squad which travelled to the Caribbean. Vince scored 14, 4, and 16 in the first three matches before scoring 34 and 55 in the final two games. He finished the tournament as the fourth-highest run-scorer. Vince, who will be looking to book a spot in the England T20I squad for the upcoming home series, has played a total of 20 innings against Essex. The top-order batsman has managed 554 runs at 30.78 in it. He has scored 63 and 23 runs against them in the 2021 season and led his team to victories in both the matches. The same should give him a lot of confidence going into the match. James Vince's record at the County Ground in Chelmsford is also decent. In his nine innings there, he has scored 240 runs at an average of 30. Vince scored 87 not out runs against Essex at the venue in August 2019. Also, Vince averaged over 31 to score 373 runs in 12 matches in the 2021 season. The Sussex-born was second-highest run-scorer for his team then. Also, we are backing James Vince to score high as he has a vast experience of playing in 289 T20I matches which has seen him score over 7584 runs at an average of 29.85. If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the best for James Vince to score high from the ESS vs HAM head-to-head encounter.

Daniel Sams to score low

In his two matches in the tournament so far, Daniel Sams has registered scores of 3 and 14. The Australian all-rounder was part of the Mumbai Indians squad in IPL 2022. Sams failed to impress with the bat. He played a total of 11 matches, scoring just 38 runs at a measly average of 5.42. The New South Wales-born has scores of 14, 3, 0*, 15 and 1 in his last five T20 outings. Overall, the 29-year-old has played a total of 87 T20 (including 7 for Australia) matches to score 755 runs at an average of 13.48. Our affiliate partner Pari Match is offering the odds of 1.87 for the same. So waste no time and head to the Pari Match website to place your bet on Dawid Malan from the YOR vs DER head-to-head encounter. He carries a strike rate of 145.75 in the format and has scored three fifties. Sams has come to bat at No.6 and No.7 position in the first two matches for Essex in the Vitality Blast 2022. He is expected to come up with some quick runs in the lower middle-order. However, his lack of form and inexperience of playing in English conditions does not look like helping him for now. Scoring briskly against a very potent Hampshire bowling attack will be very difficult for Daniel Sams. Our affiliate partner Pari Match should offer best odds for Daniel Sams. So head straight to the official Pari Match website and place your bets on Daniel Sams from the YOR vs DER head-to-head encounter.
