New Zealand v India: Fifth ODI Odds and Betting Preview

By Matt Harris on February 1, 2019

Three straight Indian wins in this ODI series meant that New Zealand were playing for mere pride. Nevertheless, they took up the challenge and secured a big win on Thursday. With Virat Kohli rested, India suffered their biggest one day defeat in terms of balls remaining. So perhaps the tourists need to salvage their pride in Sunday’s final match. But who do the 5th ODI odds for New Zealand v India favour?

What are the 5th ODI odds for New Zealand v India?

Wellington is our next venue, with the series currently standing at 3-1 in favour of India. India have been the dominant force for most of this series and they remain favourites as we would expect. Rohit Sharma’s men are available at odds of 1.80 with Betway but the market is much tighter this time. If you’re having a Satta on New Zealand, the Kiwis are on offer at 1.95 once again.

Is it a case, as some pundits are suggesting, of India being that much weaker without Virat Kohli in the side? Indian fans would certainly prefer him to be here, but Rohit has led the team to victory in the past. Thursday’s performance was certainly a dismal one, though. But we expect India to bounce back and confirm their superiority with a 4-1 series scoreline.

Match Odds Summary: New Zealand 1.95, India 1.80 (Betway – Editor’s Pick).

What are the 5th ODI odds for New Zealand v India for top batsman?

In Kohli’s absence, Rohit Sharma goes off as top batsman for India and he can be picked up at 3.25. Shikhar Dhawan is listed at 4.00, followed by Shubman Gill at 5.00. Meanwhile, Ambati Rayudu can be found at at 6.75, and MS Dhoni at 7.00.

Yuzvendra Chahal was an unlikely top scorer with 18 in Hamilton and the leg spinner is at 174.00 with Betrally this time. However, more likely Indian options include Hardik Pandya at 12.00 with Betway and Dinesh Karthik at 7.75.

Ross Taylor has been the man to watch for New Zealand recently. And after top scoring in the last two matches, Taylor is available for Wellington at 5.05. Kane Williamson starts as favourite at 3.75. Meanwhile, Martin Guptill is at 4.33 and Colin Munro at 5.00.

This is a Kiwi side that looks to be packed with batting. So, there are plenty of additional options including Henry Nicholls at 5.50, Tom Latham at 7.00, and Jimmy Neesham at 12.00.

New Zealand’s market probably contains the better prices, but it’s also tougher to predict. For India, Kohli’s absence makes things a little easier and it should be between the two men at the top. Rohit makes a good case, but he’s maybe too short at 3.25. So, we’re backing Shikhar Dhawan to continue his return to form.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: New Zealand: Williamson 3.75, Guptill 4.33, Munro 5.00, Taylor 5.05, Nicholls 5.50, Latham 7.00, Neesham 12.00.

India: Rohit Sharma 3.25, Dhawan 4.00 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Gill 5.00, Rayudu 6.75, Dhoni 7.00, Karthik 7.75, Pandya 12.00, Chahal 174.00.

What are the 5th ODI odds for New Zealand v India for Most Sixes?

We’ve not fared too well with our individual century bets in this series. It’s a huge surprise, given the batting talent on both sides, that no one has brought up a ton as yet. It’s tempting to look at those markets again, but for the final Satta, we’ll switch to the Most Sixes betting.

India are favourites for most maximums at 1.76. However, New Zealand are a value tip here at 2.25. The Kiwis have so many power hitters in their side and they can deliver a profit even when they lose ODI matches. That’s the scenario we’re hoping for again as we look for a productive end to this series.

Most Sixes Odds Summary: India 1.76, New Zealand 2.25 (Betrally – Editor’s Pick), The Tie 7.25
