South Africa v England 2020 – T20I Series Preview, Latest Odds and Predictions
England are made favourites to take the series win. They can be backed at 1.6 with Unibet.
South Africa are priced at 2.3 with the same betting site to take the series on home soil.
That price for South Africa could be seen as value, especially seeing as two of the three matches are at Newlands.
England haven’t fared well at that venue in recent outings. They have played there five times since January 2016 but only picked up one victory, which came in a Test match earlier this year.
The previous T20Is between these two teams in South Africa was also a close affair even though England eventually came out on top.
Predict the Series Score for Bigger Odds
Picking the correct score for this series will certainly mean bigger odds compared to just betting on an outright winner.
A 2-1 win for England, which would be a repeat of the last T20I series in South Africa, is priced at 2.63 with bet365. The 3-0 white-wash is at 4.75.
If you think South Africa can upset their visitors in a close-run series will be interested to know that 2-1 to the home side is available at 3.0 with bet365. A dominant 3-0 win for South Africa is considered a 6.0 shot by the same betting site.
In summary, backing the home side looks the way to go at the prices, be that the outright winner market or for a close 2-1 success.
Their chances are boosted by the form shown by their star men in the recent IPL. Mumbai’s Quinton de Kock and Delhi duo Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje faced each other in the final.
