England v India 5th Test – Betting Tips and Predictions
Here are more expert cricket betting tips. These are lined with competitive odds and include great advice about the form of the players.
Back Bumrah as India’s Top Bowler
Jasprit Burmah was remarkable on the final day of the fourth Test, orchestrating England’s batting collapse that resulted in a series lead for India.
Bumrah has an excellent skillset for bowling in English conditions. His yorkers and pace were particularly impressive the last time out.
He could enjoy extra swing in Manchester, too. Bet on Bumrah to be India’s top bowler in the first innings at 2.75 with 22Bet.
Check back for their live markets during the match as well – and perhaps go for Bumrah again as India’s top bowler in their next innings with the ball.
Pick Pope for England’s Top Batsman
Ollie Pope broke back into the England Test XI as a replacement for Jos Buttler and probably did enough to keep his place despite the return of Buttler.
Pope was solid en route to 81 in England’s first innings at The Oval. He is priced at 6.0 with bet365 to be the hosts’ top batsman in the first innings again. This could bring excellent value.
bet365 have a variety of batting markets on offer for this match, including their ‘race to 10 runs’ and player of the match options.
Choose Kohli to Hit a Century
Virat Kohli’s last three Test innings have brought 55, 50 and 44. Those are all solid contributions, but one of the best batsmen in the world will want much better from himself.
Kohli has hit 27 centuries in Test cricket and is primed for a 28th. His hunger to perform well with the bat and be the Indian captain that beat England in England is evident.
This is a big occasion, poised for the talismanic right-hander to perform well. Bet on him to hit a century in the match at 4.5 with 1xBet, who have other good options in the same market.
Of course, you will be able to bet on Kohli in the IPL later this year as well.
