Birmingham Bears v Gloucestershire – Betting Tips and Prediction
A confident Bears outfit on home turf could be a tough proposition for Gloucestershire. We would side with them for outright match winner purposes.
However, don’t forget that there are also plenty of other markets to look at before the action gets underway.
Payne to be Top Bowler for Gloucestershire
David Payne was back among the wickets against Worcestershire and it would be no surprise to see him carry that momentum into this fixture.
He claimed 16 wickets in 13 games last season and chalked up his first three of the 2020 Blast against the Rapids. That took him past a century of Vitality Blast wickets and he can cause the home batsmen more issues here.
He looks a good bet to be Gloucestershire top bowler at 4.4 with LeoVegas for this fixture.
Hammond to Take Fight to Birmingham
There was a lot to like about Miles Hammond’s knock against Worcestershire last time up. He’d previously fell for a low total in the opening game but came back well before falling just shy of his half-ton.
His consistency last year was a big positive for Gloucestershire and he looks an appealing choice to be their top batsman in this fixture.
He can be backed at 4.33 with bet365 to bag the most runs for his team.
Back Hain to Star with the Bat
Sam Hain’s unbeaten 35 against Glamorgan was just a taster of what could be to come now he’s back batting at Edgbaston.
He shone in the 2019 Vitality Blast when he bagged 459 runs over 12 matches. He can be in the runs again now and looks a solid selection for the Bears top batsman. He is priced at 4.5 with LeoVegas.
Brookes Ready to Fire for the Bears
Henry Brook enjoyed a good 2019 T20 Blast campaign. The young right-arm pace bowler took 13 wickets in his 10 matches last term and can continue his improvement in 2020.
He got off the mark with a wicket against Glamorgan and being back at Edgbaston will help him further.
He looks a solid selection to be Birmingham’s top bowler in this clash at 4.5 with 10CRIC.
