West Indies v India 3rd ODI: Cricket Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on August 12, 2019

India’s one-day leg of their Caribbean Tour concludes on Wednesday with the third ODI against the West Indies. Cricket fans, including those looking to place a cricket wager at the sportsbooks, read on to discover our 3rd ODI tips for West Indies v India.

Following Sunday’s match, the sides remain in Port of Spain, Trinidad with India avoiding the weather long enough to hold a 1-0 series lead. Following a disappointing showing in the T20 series, West Indies continue to struggle with the bat. Can the hosts turn it round, though, to square the one-dayers?

What are the 3rd ODI tips for West Indies v India?

India continue to lead the result betting by some margin, and you can back the tourists for Wednesday’s game at odds of 1.30 with Betway. Meanwhile, the Windies remain the outside Satta at 3.50. We think that the bookmakers have got this spot on, too.

The West Indies are the current T20 World Champions. From 50 overs upwards, though, the side just doesn’t seem to have the patience or the stamina for the game. It’s not an ideal situation when you’re facing a full strength Indian side who have been dominant on this tour. So, once again, we have to side with the favourites.

Match Odds Summary: West Indies: 3.50, India: 1.30 (Betway – Editor’s Pick).

What are the top batsman 3rd ODI tips for West Indies v India?

– West Indies Batsman Picks

Markets have been slow to open following Sunday’s match, but we do have a full set of prop bets from Bet365. Their prices are always competitive and in the West Indies’ top batsman betting, Chris Gayle and Shai Hope start as joint favourites at odds of 4.33. Evin Lewis follows at 5.00, while John Campbell could come in to the side to provide an option at 5.50.

Nicholas Pooran made some useful runs in the Windies’ unsuccessful chase on Sunday and he may interest you at 6.50. Other batters to consider include Shimron Hetmyer at 6.50, Roston Chase at 13.00 and Carlos Brathwaite at 17.00.

– India Batsman Picks

India can have a tendency to rest their most important players at the end of a series. Still, these ODIs are just about alive, so the tourists should be at full strength. That means that Virat Kohli takes his usual place as favourite to top score and you can claim the skipper at 3.10. Rohit Sharma is on offer at 3.25. Meanwhile, Shikhar Dhawan, whose place may be under threat, is listed at 5.00.

KL Rahul can also be claimed at 5.00. Other options for India include Shreyas Iyer at 6.50, Manish Pandey at 6.50 and Rishabh Pant at 7.00.

It may be that the best value in these markets comes from the West Indies. However, it’s much harder to pick a winner for the home side. For India, the choice has often come down to two men. While there are other contenders, we think it’s a straight fight between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

Kohli reached yet another international ton on Sunday and may well deliver again. Still, Rohit has also been in good touch and offers a slightly better-priced option at 3.25.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: West Indies: Gayle 4.33, Hope 4.33, Lewis 5.00, Campbell 5.50, Pooran 6.50, Hetmyer 6.50, Chase 13.00, Brathwaite 17.00.

India: Kohli 3.10, Sharma 3.25 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Dhawan 5.00, Rahul 5.00, Iyer 6.50, Pandey 6.50, Pant 7.00.

What are the most match sixes 3rd ODI tips for West Indies v India?

Even in defeat, the West Indies will often deliver a profit in the most sixes markets. This happened again on Sunday. Despite losing by 59 runs on Duckworth Lewis, the Windies hit three maximums to India’s two. Nevertheless, we suspect that may change on Wednesday.

We’re subsequently expecting a more emphatic win for the tourists. With that in mind, India’s odds of 3.00 to hit most sixes offers a good value Satta. With Kohli and company all starting to reach their best form, we’re hopeful of a big away victory and a decent profit from this Most Sixes market.

Most Sixes Odds Summary: West Indies 1.53, India 3.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), The Tie 9.00.
