South Africa will be facing England in the 1st ODI of the England tour of South Africa 2023. Mangaung Oval, Bloemfontein will host this affair on 27 January 2023. I have assorted three of the best money making betting tips for you from the SA vs ENG head-to-head contest.
This ODI series was rescheduled from England’s last tour to South Africa in 2020 and it has come at a perfect time when both the sides are gearing up for the upcoming ICC World Cup which is scheduled to take place this year in India. The last series between the sides ended up in a draw by 1-1. Coming into this fixture, I have handpicked the top team & player betting tips from the SA vs ENG match prediction.
I have picked a team betting tip with respect to South Africa’s batting performance in the cricket circuit. Have a look at the best SA vs ENG team betting tip.
South Africa played their last ODI series back in October against India where they were thrashed by 2-1. The Indian squad are at their best in the recent times that overwhelmed the team. SA could post the scores of 49, 7 and 7 runs before their 1st dismissal in the series. This indicates that there is a big scope of improvement when it comes to the batting order of the squad. Quinton de Kock and Janneman Malan opened for the team in that series but Malan lost his wickets early in the second and the third game to post those low opening partnerships. The sides last collided in the summer of 2022 in a three match ODI series. However, only two of those games were played in the series where SA scored 35 & 6 runs before their 1st wicket. Hence, there seems to be inconsistency among the SA openers. Malan and de Kock average at 7.20 and 53.00 respectively batting as openers. Moreover, Malan had a terrible year in 2022, averaging at a low 24.75. All these facts come to the conclusion for SA openers to face an early dismissal in the SA vs ENG head-to-head encounter. 1XBET offers the odds of 1.832 for SA to score under 27.5 runs before 1st dismissal and you should take it for a heavy payout.
Let’s have a look at the best player betting tips from the SA vs ENG match prediction.
Heinrich Klaasen is a clean hitting wicket-keeper batsman in the South African squad. He has an experience of 28 ODI innings in his career and managed to belt in 796 runs at an average of 34.60. He has a century and four half-centuries under his name. He recently played the S20 2023 and emerged as one of top scorers in the competition, averaging at 48.50. This indicates his explosive form right now. He has batted in 3 games against ENG and scored 45 runs at an average of 22.50. This surpasses our target but the next few lines should cement your confidence in this betting tip from the SA vs ENG match prediction. He averages 42.90 playing at home conditions. The last time he batted in Bloemfontein, he smashed 51 runs against Australia. He had a fantastic year of 2022 where he really finished as a top order batter with 183 runs in 5 innings at an average of 45.75. This includes his last series played against India where Klaasen registered the scores of 74* 30 and 34 runs respectively. All these facts suggest for Klaasen to score over 21.5 runs in the upcoming SA vs ENG head-to-head match.

Jason Roy made his ODI debut in 2015 and made a firm impression right away. He has played 104 ODI innings in his career and secured 3993 runs at an average of 39.53. Although this seems like a promising average, his current form says otherwise. Jason Roy opens for the team in the format. He has played 13 ODI innings against SA and scored 273 runs at an average of 21.00. This includes his last series outing against SA where he scored 43 & 14 runs respectively. This ranges under our desired target, making it a safe pick. He played his last set of games against Australia before coming into this series and registered the scores of 6, 0 and 33. In 2022, Roy managed to play 11 innings and amassed 335 runs at an average of 33.50. His last five scores in the format read as 43, 14, 6, 0 and 33 runs. As observed, in the majority of those innings, he failed to score over our target, hinting towards his dull form.
