India v Australia- Fifth ODI Odds and Betting Preview
India’s batting unit responded to a blast from their skipper Virat Kohli by setting 358/9 in Chandigarh on Sunday. An opening stand of 193 by Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan set the platform for a big total. In the end, it wasn’t enough, though. A score of 91 from Usman Khawaja and a century from Peter Handscomb saw Australia level the series at 2-2. So suddenly we have an unexpected decider. But who do the 5th ODI odds for India v Australia favour?
What are the 5th ODI odds for India v Australia?
Wednesday is the date and Delhi is the venue. Australia have won two matches in succession. However, if you’re taking a Satta on this game, India remain clear favourites. The home side are currently available at odds of 1.50 with Betway. Meanwhile, Australia are the outside bet at 2.53. Those figures have virtually been unchanged since the start of the third game, so clearly there is some value in considering Australia.
India’s batters responded to Kohli’s call, but now it’s the bowlers who need to step up. Expect some changes to the home side’s attack. And while momentum is with the Aussies, surely India can recover and land the series win that seemed certain after two games.
Match Odds Summary: India: 1.50 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Australia 2.53.
What are the top batsman 5th ODI odds for India v Australia?
Our top Indian batsman tip for Chandigarh was Rohit Sharma. And while he gave us a run for our money with 95, he was eclipsed by Shikhar Dhawan’s 143. Both openers will get support in India’s top batsman market for Friday’s game. Nevertheless, Virat Kohli remains favourite at 3.00. Rohit follows this time at 4.33 with Bet365, ahead of Shikhar Dhawan at 4.50.
Meanwhile, MS Dhoni (whose Chennai Super Kings could be a IPL 2019 satta for the season) is out for the second game running. Other options in India’s top batting market therefore include KL Rahul at 5.50, Rishabh Pant at 7.00, and Ambati Rayudu at 8.00.
Moving across to Australia’s version of the top batsman market and we find the same joint favourites in the shape of Aaron Finch and Usman Khawaja. Both players are available at 4.33. Peter Handscomb was the hero for the tourists on Sunday and, after his maiden ODI ton, he is on offer at 5.50.
Other options for Australia’s top batsman include Glenn Maxwell at 5.50, Shaun Marsh at 5.00, Marcus Stoinis at 6.00 and Ashton Turner at 9.00.
We have a feeling that Shaun Marsh may just find some form in this game. However, we’re aiming for third time lucky with Rohit Sharma. We’ve tipped the opener in each of the last two ODIs. And with an improving record, Rohit will hopefully deliver the profit this time.
Top Batsman Odds Summary: India: Kohli 3.00, Rohit Sharma 4.33 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Dhawan 4.50, Rahul 5.50, Pant 7.00, Rayudu 8.00.
Australia: Finch 4.33, Khawaja 4.33, Marsh 5.00, Handscomb 5.50, Maxwell 5.50, Stoinis 6.00, Turner 9.00.
What are the Man of the Match 5th ODI odds for India v Australia?
Overall it’s been a reasonable series for us as far as our Sattas are concerned. Nevertheless, our profits have tended to be on the favourites with Virat Kohli as India’s top batsman. Or, they’ve been short at 1.83 in the highest individual score markets.
We’ll therefore try to aim a little higher as we sign off from International Cricket, and look ahead to betting on IPL (and Cricket World Cup odds are right around the corner). Man of the Match betting always carries bigger numbers and it starts for Delhi with Kohli, who is quoted at 6.50. We’re working on the theory that this bet usually goes with the batsman. Therefore, we’ll back up Rohit Sharma here, who is at 10.00.
There are many other options, some of which we’ll list below. But as we’ve taken the Satta on Rohit to top score, we’ll follow it through and look for a match-winning contribution from the opener.
Man of the Match Odds Summary: Kohli 6.50, Rohit Sharma 10.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Kuldeep Yadav 12.00, Aaron Finch 13.00, Glenn Maxwell 13.00, Shikhar Dhawan 13.00, Jasprit Bumrah 13.00.
