West Indies v South Africa 5th T20I – Betting Tips and Predictions
Here are our free cricket betting tips for this contest. Our experts put these together and include great odds, which are based on the form of the players and teams.
Back de Kock for Top Batsman
Quinton de Kock has been in excellent form this series.
His scores read 37, 26, 72 and 60 in the four games so far. These have followed his big scores in the Test series.
His price of 3.0 with bet365 looks a good bet, especially when you consider the form of those around him.
Skipper Bavuma, opening partner Hendricks and middle-order hitter Van der Dussen are all capable but haven’t found the same levels of consistency.
South Africa Offer Value Once Again
West Indies have done well at times this series but so have South Africa, especially considering they are away from home.
These last few matches have been very close and this game could be the same. Given those recent results, the price of 2.62 with Parimatch for the visitors to get the win looks far too big.
Their spin attack has taken wickets to back up their formidable pace options. If they can find some good support for the in-form de Kock then West Indies will have a challenge on their hands.
Simmons to Hit More Runs than Lewis
There has been a lot to like about the form of Lendl Simmons since he replaced Andre Fletcher at the top of the West Indies order.
The experienced batsman has been getting solid starts without kicking on but smashed 47 in the last game.
Evin Lewis has been explosive at times but can also fall early as demonstrated in the last clash.
Backing Simmons to outscore his big-hitting opening partner with a more measured innings looks another value play.
He can be backed at 2.1 with bet365 to score more runs than Lewis in this one.
