Ireland v South Africa 3rd ODI – Betting Tips and Predictions
Ireland upset the Proteas last time out and now stand on the brink of an unlikely series success.
It is likely we’ll see a big reaction by South Africa after that loss and they are rightly favourites to come out on top.
However, given their short price for the outright win, looking at other markets is the best way to find some value bets.
Tector Can Fire Again
Harry Tector added important runs in the previous game and also made a solid contribution in the first game before the clash was hit by the weather.
The youngster is hit-and-miss but will have plenty of belief after his latest knock.
Should Ireland lose early wickets against a strong South Africa bowling attack then Tector can step up once again.
His price of 7.0 with bet365 is far too big. It is either feast or famine for the 21-year-old but when it all comes together he is dangerous.
Malan Offers Value
Janneman Mallan was in excellent form in the white-ball games against Pakistan and carried that into the last fixture.
He hit a fine 84 at the top of the order and can chalk up more runs in this game.
His price of 3.5 with 1xBet looks to have value considering his recent performances and the form of some struggling teammates.
Aiden Markram is capable but has found consistency hard to come by. Favourite Quinton de Kock will be his biggest danger should he return to the starting line-up.
Dockrell for Player of the Match
Should Ireland pull off another upset then it is likely that George Dockrell will be in the action.
The all-rounder took a wicket in the last game after adding a vital and quick-fire 45.
It is a longshot bet but worth considering if Ireland can again push the Proteas all the way.
He is priced at 21.0 with bet365 to be named the game’s star performer.
