Lahore Qalandars vs Multan Sultans – Betting Tips and Prediction
The Qalandars have not beaten the Sultans in their last two attempts in the PSL, but having triumphed over the reigning champions Quetta Gladiators twice this year, are primed to oblige the latest cricket odds and betting tips that predict they will take this contest. Here are some of the cricket betting markets that should be central to the match.
Four off the bat from the first ball of the match
This is a popular cricket bet with Betway, who have a boundary to be hit off the first ball of the match priced at 8.00. This makes for a compelling wager, as both teams have hard-hitters at the top of the order – and the opening bowlers can occasionally get their lines and lengths wrong at first go. For short odds, you can get a dot ball at 1.66 and single at 3.75 in the same category.
Bowled for method of first dismissal
At some stage or another, the team batting first are going to lose their opening wicket. An opener might be caught (1.44) or run out (13.00), but for probable odds we reckon the first mode of dismissal might be bowled at 4.50. We’ve seen it happen before in this tournament – and it’ll likely happen again. For longer odds, especially if the team bowling first opts for a spinner first up, there’s stumped at 21.00.
Best Bet: Four to be hit off the bat from the first ball of the match at 8.00 with Betway
