SOM vs GLA Match 40 South Group Predictions & Betting Tips

The 20th edition of the T20 Blast is underway and it's time for match number 40 between Hampshire and Somerset (SOM vs HAM). The match will be played at The Cooper Associates County Ground in Taunton and will commence from 11 PM PM IST on Friday, June 3. Somerset have won their first two matches, while Hampshire have suffered defeat in the one match they have played so far.

In the last season, Somerset finished second in the league stage and beat Hampshire by two wickets to enter into the finals. However, Somerset lost the final against Kent. Glamorgan, on the other hand, won only three out of their 14 league matches, finishing last in the South Group.

In the Vitality Blast 2022, Somerset are currently occupying the third spot, while Glamorgan are sitting behind them on fourth. Surrey and Middlesex are leading the points board in the South Group. As we gear up for match 40 of the English T20 league, I have brought you the best three betting tips from the SOM vs GLA match 40 head-to-head encounter.

SOM vs GLA Team Bet:

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

Somerset to win

Unlike Glamorgan, Somerset lost their last match but they will enter the match as the favourites. The Tom Abell-led side won their first three matches handsomely and the 47-run defeat against Sussex was their first. Glamorgan won their last match against Essex and saved themselves from losing their third consecutive match but they took as many as 16.5 overs to chase a 114-run target.

Overall, the two teams have played 36 matches against each other with Somerset winning 20 and Glamorgan 11. At the Cooper Associates County Ground, the venue for the SOM vs GLA match, Somerset have lost only four out the 18 games played between the two teams. Also, Somerset have won each of their last seven played matches against Glamorgan. They last to the side in 2017.

Somerset opener Sam Northeast is ongoing edition's fourth highest run-scorer with 175 runs at an average of 58.33 but his strike rate is a lowly 115.13. On the flip side, Glamorgan batsman Rilee Rossouw is currently the tournament's leading run-scorer with 248 runs at an average of 82.66 and strike rate of 190.76.

Glamorgan's Michael Hogan has scalped 12 wickets and is leading the list of highest wicket-takers in Vitality Blast 2022, but hasn't got any support from his fellow bowlers. For Somerset Josh Davey and Marchant de Lange have picked 10 and 8 wickets respectively and are featuring in the top ten list.

Overall, Glamorgan is lacking the T20 flavour in their altogether and will find it tough to beat Somerset once again. If you feel the same, head over to Pari Match to grab the odds of 1.67 and place your bet on Somerset from the SOM vs GLA head-to-head encounter.

SOM vs GLA Player Bet:

Marnus Labuschagne and Rilee Rossouw are my top two player betting tips for the Marnus Labuschagne match 40. Have a look at it for reaping the best returns.

Marnus Labuschagne to score over 26.5 runs

Marnus Labuschagne has got a start in each of his four innings for Glamorgan in the Vitality Blast 2022. In the opening match of Glamorgan against Sussex, the star batsman scored 41 off 30 to help his team chase 151 with 7 wickets and 7 balls remaining. He followed it with scores of 20 and 38 against Surrey and Middlesex respectively. In his last outing he was batting on 18 before unluckily getting run out.

Marnus Labuschagne has entered the Vitality Blast 2022 on the back of a few good innings in the County Championship. The right-hander scored a fifty against Nottinghamshire and then scored 130 and 85 in the match against Derbyshire. He is well aware of the English conditions and would look to convert his starts into big scores.

There isn't any doubt that the Australian international Marnus Labuschagne is a star in the red-ball format. The 27-year-old is also a regular in Australia's ODI squad but when it comes to T20 cricket his abilities in the format are often questioned. The right-hander has long wanted to be a part of IPL but he went unsold during the mega auctions for the 2022 season of the Indian T20 league.

With the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia fast approaching, Labuschagne won't mind doing the hard yards and give it his all to make an outside chance of making into the squad for the ICC showpiece event.

Notably, During the 2021 season, he amassed 390 runs - the most by a Glamorgan batsman - at a staggering average of 55.71 in eight matches.

The South Africa-born has played only one T20I match for Australia but overall, he has featured in 30 T20 matches to score 785 runs at an average of 29.07. Marnus Labuschagne has played just one match against Somerset and scored 18 runs in it.

Scoring over 26.5 runs should not be very tough for Marnus Labuschagne once he settles in. 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 Marnus Labuschagne from the SOM vs GLA head-to-head encounter.

Rilee Rossouw to score over 23.5 runs

The South African forged a lone battle in the 217-run battle against Sussex on Wednesday, scoring 74 off just 29 balls as his team Somerset lost by 47 runs. The 32-year-old has been in fine form ever since entering the competition. Rossouw, who has played 240 T20 matches and scored 6057 runs at an average of 30.90, has scored 81*, 67, 26 and 74 in his four Vitality Blast 2022 innings. His last three white-ball outings before the start of the tournament were 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.

The hard-hitting batsman just needs to tackle the threat from pacer Michael Hogan and he would most certainly score over 23.5 runs. 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 Rilee Rossouw from the SOM vs GLA head-to-head encounter.
