New Zealand v West Indies 2020 – T20I Preview, Latest Odds and Predictions

Hosts New Zealand are the favourites to claim the overall series victory.

They are priced at 1.38 with Unibet to secure the win after the scheduled three meetings.

The Windies do look a value selection for this. They head into it on the back of their battling Test showings in England in the summer.

Before that, they bagged back-to-back wins over Sri Lanka in March when last seen in T20I action.

They are priced at 3.0 with Unibet to win the series.

Predict the Series Score for a Bigger Price

If New Zealand are as dominant as their overall series winner price suggests then backing them for the white-wash could be worth considering.

A 3-0 series win for the Black Caps is priced at 3.25 with Unibet. However, the same betting site has a 2-1 win for New Zealand as the most likely outcome at 2.10.

Anyone fancying a 2-1 win for the Windies can get 3.85 with Unibet. An unlikely 3-0 away success is 12.0
