HAM vs SOM Team Bet:

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

Somerset to win

Unbeaten Somerset are high on confidence after two back-to-back win and will be looking to topple table-toppers Middlesex by beating Hampshire on Monday. Somerset and Hampshire met thrice in the 2021 season with the former winning on two occasions including the semi-finals. The Tom Abell-led Somerset lost three of their five matches against James Vince's Hampshire. Overall, the two teams have clashed in 22 matches with Somerset emerging victorious in 22 of them.

Hampshire have lost their last two of their five matches. Currently, they are facing the risk of a hat-trick of defeats. Somerset have lost only one out of their last five matches.A win against Hampshire will lead to a hat-trick of wins for them. Both the teams have won five matches each at the Rose Bowl, however Somerset look set to take a lead here as well.

Hampshire's batting unit will be under pressure against Somerset. Captain James Vince was their only batsman to score over 30 runs in their first match against Middlesex. Joe Weatherley, who top-scored for Hampshire with 410 runs in Vitality Blast 2021, is out-of-form. Same is the case with Liam Dawson who was out for a duck in the previous match. They have Mark Wood and Nathan Ellis in their bowling department but they will need some serious support from their batters. Also, Somerset batsmen Tom Banton, Will Smeed, Rilee Rossouw and Tom Abell look in fine form.

An exciting encounter is expected to witness a close fight but the momentum, and a better batting unit is most certainly going to help Somerset beat Hampshire. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.73 and place your bet on Somerset from the HAM vs SOM head-to-head encounter.

HAM vs SOM Player Bet:

James Vince and Rilee Rossouw are my top two player betting tips for the HAM vs SAM match 23. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

James Vince to score over 24.5 runs

James Vince led from the front and scored 47 off 38 balls while chasing 164 against Middlesex on Friday. The team lost but 31-year-old made his intentions clear about the rest of Vitality Blast 2022. Ahead of the tournament, Vince also scored a hundred and a few fifties in the County Championship 2022.

The right-hander was also the 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 18 matches against Somerset. The middle-order batsman has managed 323 runs at 19.00 in it. He has scored 2, 5 and 10 in his last three innings against them but looks set to make up for the low string of runs on Monday. 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, and he would definitely look to draw confidence from that. Also, James Vince has a vast experience of playing in 288 T20I matches which has seen him score over 7572 runs at an average of 29.92. Scoring over 24.5 runs in the important HAM vs SOM encounter doesn't look like an uphill task for James Vince. If you feel the same, proceed to Pari Match and pick the odds of 1.87 for James Vince to score over 24.5 runs from the HAM vs SOM head-to-head encounter.

Rilee Rossouw to score 50 runs

The South Africa international has played 238 T20 matches and scored 5957 runs at an average of 30.70. The first two Somerset matches in Vitality Blast 2022 (T20 Blast 2022) has seen him score 81* and 67 - both in winning causes. Rossouw's last five scores in white-ball matches are - 67, 81*, 73, 23 and 48.

Representing Multan Sultans in PSL 2021-22, the hard-hitting southpaw accumulated 275 runs in 11 matches at an average of 39.28. Rossouw last represented South Africa in 2016 but his statistics at the international level is not bad either. He scored 1239 runs at an average of 38.71 in the ODIs. In 15 T20Is, his strike rate is an impressive 137.97. Rilee Rossouw has scored 327 runs at 29.72 in the format.

A hat-trick of fifty is on the cards for the South African star and hitting that against the likes of Mark Wood and Nathan Ellis will be tough but not at all impossible.
