Australia v South Africa – Betting Tips and Predictions

Here are extra cricket betting tips to help your decision-making. Consider our insight about the best odds and form of the players.

Bet on de Kock as Top SA Batsman

Quinton de Kock is among the best T20I batsmen in the world and recently got Mumbai off to a few good starts in the IPL.

The left-hander is aggressive and takes the attack to the bowler almost immediately. He’ll be challenged in these conditions, but is a good bet for top SA batsman.

bet365 have priced the odds of this happening at 3.2. It’s a solid choice. Be sure to see the other batsmen they have offer in the same market.

Choose Cummins for Top Australia Bowler

Pat Cummins is one of the quickest bowlers around. Fans really missed him during the second leg of the IPL 2021.

Here’s a great opportunity to bet on the returning fast bowler at international level. The Aussies rely on his pace, control and wicket-taking prowess.

Cummins really could be a handful for the South African batsmen to manage. Bet on him being the top Australian bowler in this match at 4.32 with 22Bet.

Pick Cummins and Nortje in an Accumulator

1xBet have an interesting accumulator outcome here. They have priced Pat Cummins and Anrich Nortje to take at least two wickets each at 3.5.

That’s not asking too much of two world-class fast bowlers. They could capitalise during the opening powerplay and toward the end of the innings.

Comb through 1xBet’s other accumulators. They make online betting fun and can keep you involved throughout the match, not just one innings.
