Match Prediction & Tips

We are not taking any options in the match winners market. New South Wales should win this comfortably but at odds of 1/3, we are not interested in placing a back option here.

Match Prediction: New South Wales to win.

This should be a cruise to victory for NSW. It may be worth looking for a margin of victory market once we know who will bat first.

With no value on offer currently in the to win the match market, we have looked over the other options to select some picks with more value. Please read below for our guide to responsible gambling.

  • Pick 1: Warner top NSW batsman

David Warner is a top-quality batsman and took the man of the match as the top scorer in the last match. His record speaks for its self and he should have the opportunity to make a big score in this match.

  • Pick 2: A 50 to be scored in the match: no 11/1**

** Only if Western Australia bat first!

These odds caught the teams eye. Western Australia only managed one half-century last time out and if they bat first we are not expecting them to put on a big score. We would predict them potentially getting 120-175 if batting first, which would be picked off with simplicity by New South Wales. This is more of a long shot punt so we would advise betting with caution.
