Australia v India 1st Test – Betting Tips and Predictions
India look up against it this series compared to the last but have it in them to cause the Aussies plenty of problems.
As ever, there are lots of different markets to look at when hunting for a good bet to make on this match.
Labuschagne to Shine in Adelaide
Marnus Labuschagne hasn’t looked back since getting an opportunity in the Australia Test side and has continued to score runs on home soil.
It is his last performance in a Test in Adelaide that catches the eye ahead of this one. David Warner took the headlines with 335 in the second Test against Pakistan, but Labuschagne got 162 of his own.
Backing him to be Australia’s top first innings batsman looks a good bet. He can be backed at 4.32 with 22Bet.
Back Pujara for Top Batsman
Cheteshwar Pujara loved playing in Australian conditions the last time he was here.
He smashed three tons and can add to that now. Given his previous form in Australia, he looks a good bet to be India’s top first innings batsman.
Virat Kohli heads up the betting is his only Test of the series but he also has to keep his mind on the captaincy. It could be worth siding with Pujara at a better price.
He can be backed at 4.33 with bet365 to be his team’s top series batsman.
Starc and Bumrah at the Double
While spin will come into play towards the back end of the innings, it will be the quicks that will have their say early on.
Bumrah has been in good form for India in the preceding white-ball series and can suit the Adelaide track for this Test match.
Meanwhile, Starc took seven wickets the last time he played Test cricket here.
Backing both men to be their team’s first innings top wicket-taker is a longshot but one that could come off. This can be backed at 13.0 with 22Bet.
