Central Stags v Canterbury Kings – Betting Tips and Prediction
This could be another tight tussle with a place in the Super Smash final up for grabs.
These teams finished on the same points in the group stages with the Stags edging ahead on net run-rate thanks to that defeat of the Kings last time out.
Given how close this could be, looking at other betting markets for value is the best approach.
Back Henry for Top Bowler
Matt Henry has been Canterbury’s top wicket-taker this Super Smash.
He has 12 in nine matches after adding another to his tally when dismissing skipper Tom Bruce last time out.
More wickets could be coming his way and his price of 3.6 with bet365 seems a decent bet.
Stick with Worker for Top Batsman
George Worker has done really well with the bat or the Stags this campaign and it is worth sticking with him in the top batsman market despite his ear;y exit in the last contest.
He was run out on just two runs but looks a good bet to hit back here. Before that dismissal, he’d knocked a fine 49 against in-form Wellington.
He is priced at 3.5 with 22Bet to be his team’s top batsman once again.
A Century to be Scored
Our longshot bet for this clash is for someone to score a ton.
The previous game here between Wellington and Auckland brought plenty of runs and it could be the same for this well-balanced match-up.
There are lots of experienced batsmen at the top of both orders and it is worth backing that one of them will cash in.
A century to be scored is priced at 7.0 with bet365.
