Kent Spitfires v Birmingham Bears – Betting Tips and Predictions

Our experts bring you their free cricket betting tips for this fixture. These come with the latest odds and look to highlight the best value selections on offer.

Back Milne to Star Again

Adam Milne was the star performer with the ball for the Birmingham Phoenix in the Hundred final with figures of 2/8.

Before that, he was also among the wickets in this competition.

His price of 3.0 with bet365 to be Kent’s top bowler looks very appealing now he returns to Kent.

Matt Milnes and Fred Klaassen have also been good for Kent this tournament but Milne is the standout name in their ranks.

Bears Offer Value

Kent may have topped the Southern table but Birmingham could offer a few surprises.

They have a number of good prospects in their ranks this year and a returning Chris Woakes would be a huge boost to their chances.

Their price of 2.11 with Betway to get the win feels a little too big.

Chris Benjamin could do some serious damage if handed a platform by Sam Hain, Adam Hose and Ed Pollock. Jake Lintott can add more support to a dangerous bowling attack.

Briggs for Top Bowler

Danny Briggs has been good this season after his move to the Bears from Sussex.

He has 15 wickets in 11 matches and helped the Brave to the Hundred title even though he missed the final.

His price of 4.5 with 1xBet to be Birmingham’s top bowler is appealing should be get selected. Should Lintott and Woakes prove hard to get away then the Kent batsmen might have to go after Briggs at some stage.
