Bangladesh v New Zealand: World Cup Cricket Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on June 4, 2019

On Wednesday, Bangladesh take on New Zealand at The Oval following their surprise win over South Africa at the same venue. But which way are our World Cup tips for Bangladesh v New Zealand leaning?

Surprise package Bangladesh have another chance to prove that they are credible candidates for the 2019 Cricket World Cup. Meanwhile, the Kiwis should be tougher opponents following their comprehensive victory over the struggling Sri Lankans. Even at this early stage of the competition, a win is important in terms of qualification to the knockouts.

What are the World Cup tips for Bangladesh v New Zealand?

Bangladesh were available at the sportsbooks at 3.70 to beat South Africa. While they’ve shortened slightly, they are very much the outside bet at 3.50. New Zealand remain strong favourites at 1.30 with Betway and we think that the World Cup odds setters have probably got this right.

As impressive as Bangladesh’s batsmen were as they saw off Rabada and co, this is a stronger Kiwi unit with added pace and swing. New Zealand won’t roll this side over as they did with Sri Lanka. However, the likes of Boult, Ferguson and Henry will do enough damage with the white ball for an impressive batting unit to play their part.

Match Odds Summary: Bangladesh: 3.50, New Zealand: 1.30 (Betway – Editor’s Pick).

– Bangladesh Batsman Picks

A number of batsmen made strong double figure scores for Bangladesh against South Africa as Mushfiqur Rahim led the way. Mushfiqur is now available at 5.50 to top score against New Zealand. That’s decent value considering he’s down to 4.25 elsewhere.

The powerful left handed opener Tamim Iqbal starts as favourite in this Bangladesh top batsman market at 3.75. He’s followed by joint second favourites in Soumya Sarkar and Shakib Al Hasan, who are both at 5.00.

Your winner is likely to come from those four names. Other options, however, include Liton Das at 6.00, and Mahmudullah at 7.50.

– New Zealand Batsman Picks

Martin Guptill was the leading run scorer at the 2015 World Cup and the opener started the current campaign in positive fashion. Guptill led the New Zealand run chase against Sri Lanka and is now available at 4.33 to top score against Bangladesh.

Kane Williamson starts as favourite in this market at 3.75. Colin Munro was also in good touch at the weekend and looks a value prospect at 6.00. Maybe it’s time for leading run scorer Ross Taylor to deliver. Taylor is available at 4.50. Other Kiwi picks include Tom Latham at 7.50 and Jimmy Neesham at 10.00.

Our overall World Cup 2019 Satta from the two markets is Ross Taylor, who has the quality to go big against Bangladesh. We’re not suggesting he’s a flat track bully. Nevertheless, this is just the type of attack that Taylor enjoys and we’re tipping him for a major contribution on Wednesday.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Williamson 3.75, Guptill 4.33, Taylor 4.50 (Bet365 – Editors Pick), Munro 6.00, Latham 7.50, Neesham 10.00.

Bangladesh: Tamim 3.75, Sarkar 5.00, Shakib 5.00, Mushfiqur 5.50, Das 6.00, Mahmudullah 7.50.

What are the top bowler World Cup tips for Bangladesh v New Zealand?

If Bangladesh are going to upset our predictions, then the bowlers will hold the key. We’ll therefore finish with their top bowler market which starts with an obvious favourite in Mustafizur Rahman. The Fiz is on offer at 3.25. He’s followed by Shakib Al Hasan at 4.50.

We’ll list the other cricket betting options in a moment, but the bowler that really impressed us in that game with South Africa was Mehidy Hasan. His figures didn’t do him justice and they will get a lot better as the tournament develops. Hopefully, Mehidy will bag a hatful against the Kiwis and subsequently deliver a nice profit at 5.00.

Bangladesh Top Bowler Odds Summary: Mustafizur 3.25, Shakib 4.50, Mehidy 5.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Mortaza 6.00, Hossain 6.00, Saifuddin 6.50.
