Leicestershire will lock horns with Derbyshire in match number 65 of the Vitality T20 Blast 2020 at the Grace Road Ground, in Leicestershire, on September 16, Wednesday.
With 3 abandoned games, it has not been a fluent season of T20 cricket for Leicestershire Foxes and yet they find themselves in a decent position on the North Group points table. Derbyshire Falcons, on the other hand, are reeling at the bottom of the points table of the same group and they have a lot of work to do when they will take on Leicestershire tomorrow evening. The Falcons are yet to win a game and they are in all sorts of trouble and one can actually say that their journey of Vitality T20 Blast will last only till the group stage. As Leicestershire set themselves up for a juicy encounter against Derbyshire, we will take a look at some of the best markets available to bet on. Let's get going.
We will start off with a genuine one which can make our start of the week even better after quite an eventful Monday. I am sure many of you made quite a lot of money from the Monday fixtures of the Vitality T20 Blast and now it is time to capitalise on that multiply those earnings. Therefore, without any further delay, let's get straight to business - Leicestershire Foxes have smashed 27 sixes in 5 matches and Derbyshire Falcons have managed only 17 in 6 matches in this ongoing season. In the last five head-to-head encounters, Leicestershire Foxes have managed 16 sixes whereas Derbyshire Falcons have only managed 9 of them. In the last five encounters between these two sides at the Grace Road Cricket Ground in Leicester, Leicestershire Foxes have smashed 24 sixes and, on the other hand, Derbyshire Falcons have managed to hit only 11 of them. You can clearly spot the difference between the two sides when it comes to hitting sixes and it is quite startling to be honest. Bet 365 is offering odds of 1.83 for Leicestershire Foxes to hit more sixes in the upcoming fixture and I don't really see any other outcome.
The 23-year-old young all-rounder from Ireland has finally managed to get some English county cricket experience and boy it will do wonders for him in the future. Delany, undoubtedly, is a wonderful addition to this Leicestershire setup and he is already proving his worth. However, Leicestershire Foxes need to play him in all the remaining games to get the maximum out of this talented cricketer from Dublin if they would want to make it to the quarter finals of the ongoing season of the Vitality T20 Blast. Gareth Delany has scored 162 runs in just 5 matches at an average of 32.50 including two half centuries already in his first season of the Vitality T20 Blast. In this calendar year, Delany has featured in 16 T20 games and has scored 498 runs at an average of 35.57. So far, he has played two matches at the Grace Road Cricket Ground in Leicester, he has managed 69 runs at an average of 34.50. He has 1233 runs in his overall T20 career and has an average of 28.67 including 8 half centuries. Therefore, I believe 21 runs should be a piece of cake for this young cricketer and that is exactly why you need to head over to the Bet 365 website which is offering odds of 1.83 for this particular market.
Now that I have given you two almost guaranteed markets to bet on, I need you take a look at this particular market which is going to give guaranteed return as I am extremely sure about it. Leicestershire Foxes are walking into this fixture with an upper hand clearly and the North Group points table is the living example of that. Leicestershire Foxes are placed third on the points table and have a really good chance of making it to the second place if they win against Derbyshire Falcons. The Falcons, on the other hand, are yet to win a game in this ongoing edition of the Vitality T20 Blast and that says a lot about their current forms. The two teams have met on 28 occasions in the past and Leicestershire Foxes have managed to win 18 of them. Leicestershire Foxes have won 12 out of their last 18 encounters against Derbyshire Falcons. In 14 head-to-head encounters at the Grace Road Cricket Ground in Leicester, the hosts have managed to win 9 matches. Bet 365 is offering odds of 1.57 for a Leicestershire Foxes victory and I would suggest that you place your bets quickly before that number further plummets.

Gareth Delany to score at least 21 runs - @ 1.83 (Bet 365)
