West Indies v Sri Lanka 1st Test – Betting Tips and Prediction
We have more Test cricket betting tips for you. These are based on the form of the players and include some solid tips about the odds.
Back Bravo as the Top West Indies Batsman
A few days ago, Darren Bravo scored a century in ODI cricket at the same venue that will host the first Test. He could take that form into this match.
He’ll have more time to plot his innings this time as well. Bravo is arguably more of a Test match than ODI batsman.
Things are shaping up nicely for him to be the top West Indies batsman in the first innings at 4.5 with bet365.
Make Embuldeniya the Top Sri Lankan Bowler
The last time Sri Lanka played Test cricket was a couple of months ago, when spinner Lasith Embuldeniya was prolific against England. He took 15 wickets in two matches.
Conditions in Antigua will be different to those in Galle, but not entirely so. He should still benefit from some turn and extra bounce.
Embuldeniya is a good pick to be Sri Lanka’s top bowler in the first innings at 4.0 with CampoBet.
Have Holder as the Player of the Match
Jason Holder is no longer the West Indies Test captain and that could really free and empower him to return to his very best. West Indies cricket have reaffirmed their faith in him, regardless.
Capable of performing well with bat and ball, Holder is key as a first-change bowler and middle- to lower-order batsman.
Bet on him for a player of the match performance at 10.0 with 22xBet. This is a longer-odds pick, but could bring great value.
