Gloucestershire v Derbyshire Predictions
Gloucestershire has been solid in their last 3 3 games with 3 wins and has topped 160 runs in 3 matches. What has really helped them is they have not lost may wickets with 2 results coming for the loss of only 7 wickets combines. At the bowling end, they have been prolific taking 8 wickets in 2 games and bowling the opposition all out in the other.
Their openers have been particularly prolific with both scoring double figures each game and making 25 regularly.
Tip 1 – Gloucestershire highest opening partnership 9/10
As a side bet based on the stats under 12.5 wickets in the match at 9/10 looks worth taking too.
The trend of low wickets continues through the early games of the T20 blast and this will set them well for this quarter-final. The 4/7 for them to win the match isn’t enough value for us to take but could be worth looking at for live betting if Derbyshire bat and start well.
Derbyshire Falcons have hit some big wins in the last few games. In the last 4, they have 4 wins of which 3 have been at 8 wickets or higher. Prior to that, they were a bit hit and miss at the start of the season with some wins by a few runs and a couple of defeats.
With the recent results for both teams having low wickets, our bet 2 is this –
Tip 2 – Based on the stats under 12.5 wickets in the match at 9/10
