Bangladesh and West Indies will face in their 3rd and final ODI of the series at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chattogram on Monday, January 25.
The final match of the ODI series between West Indies and Bangladesh is going to be an exciting one, even with a known outcome. Bangladesh have completely subjugated West Indies in the series and seemed to win the matches with complete ease with more than 6 wickets remaining in both matches, they chased the target given by the West Indies team within 34 overs in the games. The last time the two teams faced on the pitch was in 2011, and Bangladesh had gotten the Windies all out with only 61 runs to their name. With a different squad this time around, West Indies are expected to put up a fight, but Bangladesh are still the favourites to win with really low odds in their favour. I have gathered the top winning bets from the market with the best odds, to get your money flowing in the game.
This is a safe bet from the game that you can go for, and all things considered, it has quite good odds. Sunil Ambris has been opening for West Indies in the matches and he hasn't performed well at all. He scored 6 and 7 runs with partnerships of 10 and 9 runs in the 2 matches in Dhaka. The other openers, Joshua Da Silva and Kjorn Ottley have not fared much better with 9 and 24 runs scored, but Sunil Ambris was the first man out for the West Indians in both matches. Bangladesh's bowlers consisting of Mehidy Hasan Miraz, Mastafizur Rahman, Hasan Mahmud, and Shakib Al Hasan have all been in top bowling form and have been getting wickets from West Indies easily. West Indies have had partnerships of over 20.5 in 2 of their last 5 matches, but both matches featured Shai Hope opening for the Windies team, who is unavailable to the team in this tournament. Sportsbet is offering the odds of 1.85 for the 1st Dismissal of West Indies to be under 20.5 runs, and this is a good bet to go for.
Both the teams have solid hitters in them and have been scoring a lot of boundaries in their games. Bangladesh has been averaging at 20.14 fours per game from their last 7 matches, while West Indies has an average of hitting 17.43 fours per game from their previous 7 matches. This is already good for our bet, and while the previous two games have not featured the teams hitting over the target,with a total of 23 and 21 fours from the two matches, I did tell you previously, the pitch at Dhaka has a lower proclivity for fours. If we look at the last 5 matches played at Chattogram the total fours were over 34.5 in all 5 matches, at an average of 38.6 from the games. Bangladesh, who were playing in all 5 matches, had an average of hitting 20.8 fours per match from the games. This is a remarkable difference from the previous pitch, where the average of total fours from the last 5 matches is 28.2, with an average of 16.0 for the Bangladeshi team. You should definitely go for this bet because even previously, the same opponents who were scoring the smaller boundaries at a significantly lower average in Dhaka, hit fours at a higher average at Chattogram. Sportsbet.io has offered odds of 1.77 for the total fours to be over 34.5 in the match.
This is one of the best bets in the market as it allows you to almost double your money. West Indies are absolutely dominant when it comes to hitting the bigger boundaries and it shows if you look at their records, even though they lost the last 5 matches they played, they have managed to hit more sixes than their opponents in all the 5 games, including the 2 matches against Bangladesh. Bangladesh managed to hit more sixes than their opponents in only 2 of their last 5 games. While I will not compare the average sixes from these games because while two of the games were between West Indies and Bangladesh, Bangladesh played 3 matches against Zimbabwe while West Indies played 3 matches against Sri Lanka and the two teams have absolutely different bowling prowesses. We can compare their performances against Sri Lanka, as both teams have played against them at their home grounds with similar squads. Bangladesh managed to score only 3 sixes from the 3 matches against Sri Lanka and hit fewer sixes in all the matches with 8 sixes conceded. West Indies hit 13 sixes against Sri Lanka and they hit more sixes in every match where Sri Lanka managed to hit 6 sixes from the games. West Indies propensity for hitting the big boundaries makes this a very viable bet and Sportsbet.io has made it spicier by offering odds of 2.08 for West Indies to hit the most match 6's.
