India v West Indies 2nd ODI: Cricket Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on December 16, 2019

Things didn’t quiet go according to plan for the hosts in the three-match India v West Indies ODI series opener. A target of 287/8 looked to be too short at the halfway point. And it proved to be the case as the tourists chased it down with 13 balls to spare.

Brilliant centuries from Shimron Hetmyer and Shai Hope drove the Windies to victory. Virat Kohli’s men now have to regroup and respond in Wednesday’s second match in Visakhapatnam.

What are the cricket odds for India v West Indies?

India still remain favourites to take the second ODI and you can claim the home side at odds of 1.30 with Betway. West Indies is the outside bet at 3.75. The visitors will get some backers following Sunday’s win.

As impressive as the Windies were, India will know that they simply didn’t score enough runs on Sunday. The top three of Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Virat Kohli made just 46 between them. This is where the hosts need to improve and India know they have a real battle on. The key batters will not be out of form for long. We expect the big response to come in Wednesday’s fixture.

Match Odds Summary:

India 1.30 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), West Indies: 3.75

What are the top batsman odds for India v West Indies?

Two Indian players brought up half centuries on Sunday with Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant making 70 and 71 respectively. They were both vital efforts but those knocks underline the need for India’s top three to step up in Visakhapatnam.

The focus will be on Virat Kohli in particular who starts as favourite in India’s top batsman market at 3.40 with Bet365. Rohit Sharma follows at 3.50 while KL Rahul can be picked up at 4.50. Mayank Agarwal is also available at 4.50. Some outside Sattas might include Pant at 6.00, Iyer at 7.00 and Kedar Jadhav at 9.00.

There are few concerns in the West Indies cricket camp following that brilliant run chase in Chennai. With Hetmyer and Hope both passing three figures, India know who they need to target if they are to square the series.

In the Windies’ top batsman market for this second game, Shai Hope starts as the new favourite at 4.33 with Bet365. Evin Lewis follows at 4.50 but as he missed the first ODI through injury, you should check the team sheets before committing to him.

Elsewhere, Hetmyer may offer the value at 5.00 while other West Indian options include Brandon King at 5.00, Sunil Ambris at 5.50, Nicholas Pooran at 5.50, Roston Chase at 6.00 and Kieron Pollard at 7.00. All of those figures are with Bet365 once again.

We’re going back to an old favourite of ours now as we put our money behind Rohit Sharma. The opener looked bright in making 36 before a tame dismissal on Sunday and while his form isn’t the best, he’s sure to bounce back at some point.

Top Batsman Odds Summary:

India: Kohli 3.40, Rohit Sharma 3.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Rahul 4.50, Agarwal 4.50, Pant 6.00, Iyer 7.00, Jadhav 9.00

 West Indies: Hope 4.33, Lewis 4.50, Hetmyer 5.00, King 5.00, Ambris 5.50, Pooran 5.50, Chase 6.00, Pollard 7.00

What are the most sixes odds for India v West Indies?

If India are to respond then they’ll need to score quickly and heavily. The fact that West Indies recorded eight maximums on Sunday to India’s three means that there could be some value in the Most Sixes betting for Visakhapatnam.

You can pick up the Windies here at 1.95 with Bet365 but we’ll take our final Satta on India at a generous 2.37 with Betway. The hosts need to come out firing and power over the boundary ropes if they are to square this series.

Most Sixes Odds Summary:

West Indies 1.95, India 2.37 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), The Tie 7.50
