Bangladesh and West Indies will begin their 1st ODI of a three-match series at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Mirpur, Dhaka on Wednesday, January 20.
This is the first match for both teams in the ICC Men's Cricket World Super League, which commenced in 2020 and will conclude in 2023. West Indies have lost to Bangladesh inWest Indies have lost the last 5 head to head matches between the teams, and they last managed to win a series against Bangladesh in 2014. And the last time they won in Dhaka - 2011! It doesn’t come as a surprise then, that Bangladesh are the favourites to win this match at home, and the odds for them to win are pretty low. I have gathered the top winning bets from the market with good odds, to get your money flowing in the game.
I have a player for you to bet on, who will certainly get you a win. Sunil Ambris debuted against England in 2017, but he became a more permanent fixture on the squad in 2019. He has played 12 ODI innings till date, and he has scored a total of 447 runs, at an average of 44.70! This is almost certainly conducive for our bet. He has an excellent track record against Bangladesh, who he faced in Ireland in 2019, and he came out to bat against Bangladesh in 3 innings and scored a total of 130 runs (28, 23, 69*) with an average of 65.0 he scored over the required 22.5 runs, in all the matches. He has been a phenomenal opener for the Windies, with an average of 44.7 from the 10 innings he came to open, and the only match he played under the leadership of Jason Mohammed got him 38 runs without getting out. Sportsbet.io has offered the odds of 1.85 for Sunil Ambris to score over 22.5 runs, and it seems extremely likely.
This is another winning bet but, this time for top Bangladeshi batsman, Tamim Iqbal. Tamim has played a total of 207 matches in his long and illustrious career and scored a total of 7202 runs at an average of 36.74. He has faced the Windies on 26 separate occasions and scored a total of 933 runs against them, at an average of 40.56. He has come out to bat at Dhaka in 78 matches since 2007, in the last 10 matches that he played at the pitch, he scored a whopping 463 runs at a huge average of 51.44. His last 10 innings have also seen him score a total of 459 runs, at an average of 51.0, where none of the matches were at home. So we have the Bangladeshi captain, who is known to lead from the front, and has excellent records against West Indies, has a solid form from his last few matches, and has performed well at the pitch. Sportsbet.io has offered odds of 1.85 for Tamim Iqbal to score over 31.5 runs, and you should definitely go for this bet.
This is one of the safest bets to go for in the market, and I am about to conclusively show you that. In the last 5 matches played by Bangladesh, they have hit a total of 116 fours, at an average of 23.2, while West Indies have managed to hit only 99 fours from their last 5 matches, at an average of 19.2. Not only that, West Indies managed to hit more fours than their opponents in 2 out of the last 10 matches, whereas Bangladesh has been fighting for the fours, and managed to hit more fours than their opponents in 5 of the last 10 games. Even if we look at their head to head records, they tell us a similar story. In the last 5 matches between the teams, Bangladesh has managed to hit 110 fours, at an average of 22.0 while West Indies, managed to hit only 85 fours against Bangladesh, at an average of 17.0. Bangladesh also hit more fours than the Windies on all 5 occasions. Bet365.com has offered odds of 1.72 for Bangladesh to hit the most 4's, and this is a safe bet.
