England v Sri Lanka 2nd ODI – Betting Tips and Predictions
Here are more free cricket match predictions. These include attractive odds and could help you make better decisions.
Choose Chameera as Sri Lanka’s Top Bowler
Dushmantha Chameera has looked the best of the Sri Lankan seamers this tour, including the T20Is that preceded the ODIs.
He was the leading wicket-taker in the opening ODI, claiming the key removals of Eoin Morgan, Sam Billings and Moeen Ali.
In the closing T20I against England before that, he had taken four wickets. Chameera is a good pick at 3.74 with 1xBet to be Sri Lanka’s top bowler again.
Pick Perara in an Accumulator Outcome
Kusal Perera is Sri Lanka’s opening batsman, wicketkeeper and ODI captain. There is a lot of responsibility on his shoulders, but he is stepping up to this nicely.
Perera was Sri Lanka’s top batsman in the first ODI, striking 73, including seven fours. A bit more support and the tourists might have won the match.
We are big fans of 1xBet’s popular accumulator outcomes. They’ve priced Perera to hit at least one four and six at 2.0. This is a bet well worth making.
Back Bairstow as Player of the Match
In the absence of Jos Buttler and Dawid Malan, there is plenty of onus on Jonny Bairstow to get things right for England at the top of the order.
He has done so time and time again in the past. He hit 43 in the series opener to set the tone for a relatively straightforward chase.
Pick Bairstow to take all this form and recent experience into the second match and put in a player of the match performance at 7.5 with bet365.
