West Indies v Bangladesh: World Cup Cricket Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on June 16, 2019

Ahead of Monday’s match at the County Ground Taunton, let’s take a look at our World Cup tips for West Indies v Bangladesh.

Following a positive start to the 2019 Cricket World Cup, it seemed as though the West Indies would be strong contenders for the semi finals. Two defeats and a rain-ruined game later, Jason Holder’s men are facing a must-win match.

Having lost to two strong favourites in Australia and England, the Windies have to prove their credentials against Bangladesh. Their opponents also started the tournament with a deserved win over South Africa. However, they now need some points on the board to maintain their outside challenge.

What are the World Cup tips for West Indies v Bangladesh?

Cricket bettors looking for an upset in this game will see some value in Bangladesh’s outside price of 2.75 with Betway. West Indies lead the way at 1.44, and while they are worthy favourites, the figure looks a little short for comfort.

There’s no shame in losing to pre-tournament favourites England. Nonetheless, the Windies were disappointing with both bat and ball on Friday. The key battle is between the West Indies’ pace battery and Bangladesh’s top order. Our preference was for those bowlers to come through, so we’ll stay with the West Indies as our tip. Still, that sportsbook price of 1.44 is shorter than we’d hoped.

Match Odds Summary: West Indies 1.44 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Bangladesh 2.75.

– West Indies Batsman Picks

Nicholas Pooran continues to impress with the bat. After top scoring with 63 against England, he will be an option in the Windies’ top batsman market at 7.50 with Bet365. Chris Gayle starts as the favourite here at 3.60. He’s followed by Shai Hope at 4.33 with Bet365.

Evin Lewis and Shimron Hetmyer can both be claimed at 5.50 . Other options for the West Indies include Andre Russell at 9.50, and Jason Holder at 10.00.

– Bangladesh Batsman Picks

For Bangladesh, Shakib Al Hasan has been the standout performer with the bat. He will subsequently be an obvious pick to top score for his side at 4.50. Tamim Iqbal starts as favourite in this World Cup betting market at 4.00. Meanwhile, Mushfiqur Rahim has also been in good touch and looks a value selection at 5.50.

We expect your winner to come from that list of three names. However, bettors could also take a World Cup 2019 Satta on Soumya Sarkar at 5.00, Liton Das at 6.00, or Mahmudullah at 8.50.

We’ve yet to really see the best of Shai Hope in this World Cup. We think it’s time for the keeper to make a big contribution with the bat, though. He’s enjoyed great success in England in the past and he is due to click into form.

Mushfiqur Rahim for Bangladesh is also a good alternative as his excellent price of 5.50. Nevertheless, we’re keeping faith with Hope.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: West Indies: Gayle 3.60, Hope 4.33 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Lewis 5.50, Hetmyer 5.50, Pooran 7.50, Russell 9.50, Holder 10.00.

Bangladesh: Iqbal 4.00, Shakib 4.50, Sarkar 5.00, Mushfiqur 5.50, Das 6.00, Mahmudullah 8.50.

This isn’t a market that we’ve really considered before, but we think there could be some value in this option for Monday’s game. West Indies are favourites to provide the top overall batter in the match. Once again, though, they look a little short at odds of 1.66.

Bangladesh are quoted at 2.10, and they are our pick to round off this preview. With Mushfiqur and Shakib in decent form, they could well produce the highest score, even if they go on to lose the match.
