Australia v India 4th Test – Betting Tips and Predictions
India have played brilliantly this series despite plenty of notable absences, including talismanic skipper Virat Kohli.
They showed their ability to win the 2nd Test and then their battling qualities to secure a draw in in the 3rd Test.
However, while securing another series win in Australia is within reach here, overcoming the hosts at this venue is a tall order.
Given how short Australia are in the outright betting market, looking at other odds is the best way to approach this.
Back Starc to Take Wickets
The pitch at the Gabba will suit the Aussie pace ace and betting on him to be his team’s top wicket-taker in the first innings looks a great bet.
He can be backed at 4.0 with bet365, which seems far too big given his record at this venue.
Starc has 32 wickets in 14 innings in Brisbane and showed his liking for these surroundings when running through Pakistan when last in action here. He took six wickets that Test and it would be no surprise to see him flourish again.
Stick with Pujara to Top Score for India
Cheteshwar Pujara has enjoyed another solid tour Down Under. He might not have reached the heights of the last Border-Gavaskar series success but he has been key to India’s fight.
His first-innings half-century in Sydney was backed up by 77 in the second, which was also his highest score of the series so far.
He is in form and looks a good price to be his side’s top first innings batsman here. That is available at 3.2 with 22Bet.
Labuschagne is the Value Bet
Marnus Labuschagne leads the way as the overall series top scorer and can get more runs in this match.
His fine showings were underlined with the 91 and 71 runs he managed in the previous Test.
With Steve Smith heading the Australia top batsman market, it means Labuschange’s price has a hint of value to it at 3.75 with bet365.
It looks even more value considering how well he played against Pakistan here back in 2019. He smashed a stunning 185 on that occasion to leave him with 266 runs in just two innings at this ground.
