CPL Betting Tips – Pick Bravo or a Spinner for Top Bowler

Seamers on the outside

Kieron Pollard celebrates a wicket for the West Indies

Seven of the top 10 wicket-takers in the history of the Caribbean Premier League are involved in this year's tournament.  Four of the top five bowlers from the CPL 2019 are back.

Over the last couple of years, spinners have enjoyed more success than seamers in this competition. There are some really good odds around for both types of bowler this time.

Discover how you can take advantage with our CPL betting tips.

Best Bet: Dwayne Bravo to be the CPL top bowler at 11.00 with bet365

Back Bravo to Be at His Best Again

Former West Indies captain Dwayne Bravo is the leading wicket-taker in CPL history. Bravo's 97 wickets are a dozen more than his closest competitor.

He missed the CPL 2019 due to injury, but is back with the Trinbago Knight Riders for this season. He has also handed over the captaincy to fellow all-rounder Kieron Pollard on a full-time basis.

Bravo wants to concentrate on his primary roles with the ball and bat – and not be limited by the captaincy. He is very experienced in bowling in Caribbean conditions.

The veteran right-armer knows that several variations are key, including his characteristic slower ball. Betting on an injury-free and motivated Bravo to be the top CPL bowler with bet365 at 11.00 is a good pick.

The same betting site is also offering each-way terms on the same bet of 1/4, 1-2-3-4. We're big fans of this, as you will still profit if Bravo only finishes among the top four bowlers.

He'll head to the Chennai Super Kings after this, so his form in the CPL will be an early indicator of what to expect from him in the Indian Premier League.

Make Your Pick From 5 Excellent Leg-Spinners

Hayden Walsh junior and Imran Tahir were the top two wicket-takers in the 2019 CPL. Fawad Ahmed is among the players with the best bowling averages and economy rates in the tournament.

Rashid Khan is renowned for starring in domestic T20 tournaments around the world, most recently the Big Bash League in Australia. All four are involved in the CPL 2020.

Slow bowlers succeed when batsman chasing pace on the ball don't get it. Leg-spinners with excellent variations, including wrong'uns and faster ‘arm' balls have done well in the Caribbean.

For a happy medium between the shorter odds of Khan and Tahir and the longer odds of Walsh and Ahmed, there's Sandeep Lamichhane at 10.00 with Bodog India.

Hayden Walsh junior (Barbados Tridents) 12.00
Fawad Ahmed (Trinbago Knight Riders) 19.00

Place a Bet on 26/1 Sohail as an International Alternative

If you're not that keen on Bravo or the leg-spinners and want to look elsewhere, Sohail Tanvir is another top pick among our CPL betting tips.

Betway and LeoVegas have Tanvir offered at 26.00 to be the top CPL bowler. He is likely to lead the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots' seam attack with captain Rayad Emrit and West Indian international Sheldon Cottrell.

Tanvir's left-arm angle and awkward action make him tricky for batsmen to exploit. The Pakistan seamer played in the Indian Premier League many years ago and was the leading wicket-taker in the 2017 CPL.

Like for Bravo, he is among the top bowler each-way terms (1/4, 1-2-3) – this time with Betway.
