India v Australia- Second ODI Odds and Betting Preview

By Staff Writer on March 4, 2019

Australia may have won the T20 leg of this tour, but in the longer form of the game, things tend to even out. The favourites from India duly won the first of five ODIs. After a successful run chase, Virat Kohli’s men will therefore be far more confident during the one dayers. The teams now move on to Nagpur for Tuesday’s second game and the sportsbooks have reacted to that opening Indian win. So, what are the 2nd ODI odds for India v Australia?

What are the 2nd ODI odds for India v Australia?

India’s win price for Tuesday has shortened considerably. You can currently pick up the home side at odds of 1.44 with Bet365. That figure leaves Australia out at 2.75. But is there any hope of an upset in this market?

India’s bowlers certainly did their job in restricting India to 236/7. And while the run chase went into the 49th over, India looked calm for most of their innings. Australia can compete if batters such as Aaron Finch return to form. But India’s batting can also improve, and we expect a 2-0 scoreline at the end of the 100 overs.

Match Odds Summary: India 1.44 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Australia 2.75.

What are the top batsman 2nd ODI odds for India v Australia?

MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav steered India home with Jadhav top scoring in Hyderabad. That performance illustrates the depth in batting. However, we have our usual favourite for Tuesday in Nagpur. Virat Kohli leads the way at 3.25 with Betway, followed by Rohit Sharma at 4.00.

Shikhar Dhawan is on offer at 4.50, followed by KL Rahul at 6.00. Meanwhile, India’s middle order heroes are Dhoni at 9.00, and Jadhav at 9.50.

For Australia, Aaron Finch is in a wretched run of form right now. While he is favourite with some bookmakers, the skipper has drifted to 4.75. Usman Khawaja is the new favourite at 4.50, followed by Shaun Marsh at 5.00.

Glenn Maxwell will remain a threat following his performances in the T20s and is available at 6.00. Other Aussie punts include Marcus Stoinis at that same 6.00, plus Alex Carey and Ashton Turner, who are both listed at 9.00.

Maxwell has to be a tempter at that excellent price of 6.00. Our overall tip, though, is a little more obvious. We backed Virat Kohli to top score in Hyderabad and while he didn’t come through with the profit, the skipper showed good touch in making 44. Kohli was at 3.00 for that match, and therefore carries a little better value at 3.25 for Nagpur.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: India: Kohli 3.25 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Rohit 4.00, Dhawan 4.50, Rahul 6.00, Dhoni 9.00, Jadhav 9.50.

Australia: Khawaja 4.50, Finch 4.75, Marsh 5.00, Maxwell 6.00, Stoinis 6.00, Carey 9.00, Turner 9.00.

What are the highest individual 2nd ODI odds for India v Australia?

As always, there are lots of options for our final Satta and this time, we’ll focus on the batting. Betway have an interesting bet with odds of 1.80 on both teams to score above 250 and that could be the one to pick.

As for the individual century betting, Betway are quoting 1.72 on any player from either side to go past three figures on Tuesday. That will also be a tempter for some. Nevertheless, we’ll go a little higher and back the highest individual score to come in at over 105.5. The price for that option is 1.83 and it comes from Bet365.

The game in Hyderabad doesn’t necessarily give us good indicators for this bet as it was a low-scoring affair. However, the batting should improve from this point. And with what will hopefully be a better surface in Nagpur, a dominant performance from India’s batters will help this bet to drop in.

Highest Individual Score Odds Summary: Over 105.5, 1.83 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Under 105.5, 1.83.
