England v Pakistan 2nd ODI – Betting Tips and Predictions
Our experts have cricket betting tips for this match. These include the latest odds and are based on the form of the players.
Back Shaheen to Shine
Shaheen Afridi caused problems at times in the first ODI but only had the wicket of Phil Salt to show for it.
That, however, was still more than his fellow bowlers and he can be the top Pakistan wicket-taker in this fixture as well.
His price of 3.74 with 1xBet look appealing, especially when you look at his recent ODI record at this venue.
Conditions should suit his pace bowling as they did when he took six wickets against Bangladesh during the 2019 World Cup.
Vince Offers Value
James Vince’s batting wasn’t needed in the first game but he was slated to come in at number four in Cardiff.
There’s a chance he could see some action here and backing him to be England’s top batsman is appealing at the prices.
There is no doubting his ability but he hasn’t quite made it stick on the international scene.
This is a big opportunity for him and he has been in solid form domestically without quite building on his starts.
His price of 5.0 with bet365 looks the value play of this match.
Back Imam at Lord’s
As you’d expect, Babar Azam heads the top Pakistan bowler market.
However, that does mean there is more value to be had on one of his teammates if you think they can run him close.
In the last game Fakhar took the prize, this time it is worth considering Imam ul-Haq.
Both he and Babar fell for ducks in the last contest, but this could be different.
Imam his a 100-ball century in his previous ODI at this venue and will welcome a return.
His price of 4.5 with bet365 looks good.
