Somerset v Lancashire Lightning – Betting Tips and Predictions

Our experts have cricket betting predictions for this clash. These are based on all the latest odds and the form of the players.

Back Lightning to Strike

This does look like being quite a close contest as the teams battle for a place at 2021 Finals Day.

It could come down to which side copes best without their star opener. Devon Conway is missing for the Somerset and Finn Allen is absent for Lancashire.

Both men have topped their team’s run-scorer charts and will be a big miss in such a vital fixture.

However, preference goes to the bigger-priced Lightning who will be buoyed by the return of England star Liam Livingstone on the back of his Hundred heroics.

Livingstone’s ability with the ball in hand is also a big bonus.

They are priced at 2.11 with 1xBet in the outright winner market and head here after a confidence-boosting success of Yorkshire last time out.

Davies is Value in Top Batsman Market

While Liam Livingstone will be the obvious favourite in the top Lightning batsman market, it could be worth siding with Alex Davies as a value selection.

He has 260 runs in 13 matches this year and has been in fine form for the Southern Brave in the Hundred.

Should Livingstone fall early, which is possible with his all or nothing style, then Davies could capitalise.

His price of 4.5 with bet365 is appealing.

Smeed to Lead Somerset Fight

After the absent Devon Conway, only young Will Smeed makes the top 40 tournament run-scorers for Somerset in 2021.

He has 283 in 11 matches and is another that enjoyed his time with Birmingham in the Hundred.

His scores dropped off in the final couple of matches but the 19-year-old continues to show promise.

With the talented Tom Banton struggling for form, he could be the man to top score for the hosts.

He is priced at 4.5 with bet365 to be Somerset’s top batsman.
