West Indies v South Africa 2nd Test – Betting Tips and Predictions
Our team of cricket and experts have more Test match predictions for your consideration. They include some really appealing odds.
Make Nortje Your Top SA Bowler
Kagiso Rabada took a second-innings five-for and Quinton de Kock was named player of the match, but it was Anrich Nortje who started the West Indies rot last week.
The firebrand fast bowler was on point from the first ball – and took seven wickets in total in the match. Four of those came in the first innings.
He should be well rested and ready to go again. Nortje is a solid price at 3.75 with bet365 to be the top South African bowler in the first innings.
Choose Chase as the Top West Indies Batsman
West Indies’ top order is looking a bit fragile at the moment, especially against South Africa’s big fast bowlers. But they have solidity in the middle order via Roston Chase.
He put in a near standalone half-century as the hosts folded on day three in Gros Islet. That experience of the conditions and opposition bowlers should serve him well this time.
Chase offers plenty of value and we really like 1xBet’s price of 5.5 for him to be the top West Indies batsman in the first innings.
Bet on West Indies for a Brief Opening Partnership
Kraigg Brathwaite, alongside Kieran Powell or Shai Hope, hasn’t looked in control at the top of the order. Perhaps the addition of the captaincy is weighing on him negatively.
South Africa have some opening combinations of their own, but the home side really don’t look primed for a lengthy first-wicket stand in the first innings.
Bet on the hosts to lose their first wicket in their opening innings before the 24th run is scored at 1.832 with 22Bet, who have some other great bets on offer as well.
