New Zealand v Bangladesh 2nd ODI – Betting Tips and Prediction
This looks like being another New Zealand victory if the 1st ODI is anything to go by.
The hosts looked far too strong for their visitors and will be keen to get the series success in the bag with one more to play.
Given New Zealand’s short outright winner price, checking other markets is the way to go for this one.
Back Boult For Top Bowler
Trent Boult was too hot to handle in the first ODI and it could pay to back him to get more wickets in this match.
He took four in the previous game and his record at this venue gives him a great chance of being his team’s top bowler again.
Boult has 17 ODI wickets to his name in Christchurch and his price of 3.0 with 1xBet looks a good bet.
Nicholls to Star with the Bat
There was a lot to like about Martin Guptill’s quick-fire 38 in the previous game and he tops the market to be New Zealand’s best batsman.
However, Henry Nicholls’ well-measured 49 alongside him was just as impressive and backing him to be his team’s top batsman could be a decent bet at the prices.
The 29-year-old left-hander made some big scores in the Ford Trophy for Canterbury and wasted no time in adding more on the international stage.
His price of 4.5 with bet365 looks worth a go.
Mushfiqur Can Shine for Bangladesh
Mushfiqur Rahim did well when Bangladesh hosted the Windies prior to this series.
He hit 64 in the final ODI and then continued to bag runs in the Test series that followed.
The whole team put in a poor batting performance in the 1st ODI but Mushfiqur can bounce back in this game.
If his side’s openers struggle against the pace of Boult and Henry then he might be the one to take the fight to New Zealand.
He is priced at 5.0 with bet365 to be Bangladesh’s top batsman.
