New Zealand v West Indies 2nd Test – Betting Tips and Predictions
It is hard to look past New Zealand for the outright win in this one, especially after their dominant display in the first Test.
With their short price being unappealing from a betting perspective, it is a good idea to look at other markets on offer.
Back Southee to Star in Wellington
Tim Southee has a fine record at the Basin Reserve and comes here in fine form from the first Test.
Conditions in Wellington suit his bowling and the overcast weather will only aid his ability to swing the ball away from the right-handers.
He took nine wickets in the previous Test match here against India and looks a great bet to pick up more against the Windies.
Southee can be backed at 3.75 with 10CRIC to be New Zealand’s top 1st innings bowler.
Should Southee shine with the ball in hand, then it could be worth considering him for the man of the match award at 12.0 with the same betting site.
This is a longshot bet but one that is worth a look given his recent record.
Latham to Beat Young to 10 Runs
Tom Latham batted really well in the first Test and has also had success in Wellington.
On the other hand, his opening partner Will Young was dismissed for five on debut.
Young will likely be cautious early on after that, so backing Latham to get to 10 runs before him looks a good bet.
That can be backed at 1.665 with 22Bet.
