By Matt Harris on August 5, 2019

Tuesday’s T20i match between West Indies v India may be a dead rubber, but it still presents an interesting betting opportunity. So, let’s get straight to our 3rd T20i tips for West Indies v India. Of course, we’ll also provide all the best odds currently available for cricket bettors at the sportsbooks.

India haven’t always been at their best in this T20 series, but Virat Kohli’s men have done enough to claim a 2-0 lead. That’s enough to win this leg of the tour. India have been impressive in places, while the Windies have been sub par. But can the hosts claim a consolation victory at Providence in this third and final contest?

What are the 3rd T20i tips for West Indies v India?

India maintain their position as favourites for the win, and you can back the tourists at 1.53. Meanwhile, West Indies are the outside bet at 2.50 with Betway. There may be reasons to take a Satta on the home side this time, too.

India have been in trouble at times in this series. On Sunday, Kohli’s men looked set for a disappointing total before a boundary blast from Krunal Pandya helped to add 20 from the final over. The West Indies need to be more clinical in the way they finish off teams when they have them in trouble. We’re not 100% confident, but we backed a 2-1 series scoreline at the start. Therefore, we should stay with that prediction and get behind a Windies win.

Match Odds Summary: West Indies 2.50 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), India 1.53.

– West Indies Batsman Picks

It’s the batting that has let West Indies down in this series. So where is the improvement coming from? The bookies have continued to name Evin Lewis as favourite to top score for the Windies and the opener is available at 4.50 with Bet365.

Lewis’ fourth ball duck in Sunday’s second game isn’t encouraging. Therefore, you may prefer to take opening partner John Campbell at 5.50. Unfortunately, Campbell also failed to trouble the scorers, so who is in form? Kieron Pollard top scored in that match and he can be backed at 7.00. Other options for the West Indies include Nicholas Pooran at 5.00, Shimron Hetmyer at 6.00, and Sunil Narine at 7.00.

– India Batsman Picks

For India, Rohit Sharma has top scored in each of the opening matches. That has given us a nice profit along the way. For Tuesday at Providence, Rohit is available at 3.75 to score most Indian runs. However, Virat Kohli is favourite at 3.25.

Elsewhere, Shikhar Dhawan had made just 24 runs in two knocks so far, but you can pick up the left hander at 4.50. KL Rahul is slightly further back at 5.00. Other likely Indian batters include Rishabh Pant at 5.50, Shreyas Iyer at 6.00, and Manish Pandey at 8.00.

Perhaps it’s time for Virat Kohli to deliver, but we are often wary of the skipper’s short prices. Instead, we’ll aim for Shikar Dhawan. The opening batsman is just feeling his way back into international cricket following the injury that ended his World Cup.

Indian top batsman markets usually shares its profits between Kohli, Dhawan and Rohit Sharma. Furthermore, the left handed opener is unlikely to be out of form for too long.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: West Indies: Lewis 4.50, Pooran 5.00, Campbell 5.50, Hetmyer 6.00, Pollard 7.00, Narine 7.00.

India: Kohli 3.25, Sharma 3.75, Dhawan 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Rahul 5.00, Pant 5.50, Iyer 6.00, Pandey 8.00 .

What are the total match runs 3rd T20i tips for West Indies v India?

Given the low scoring nature of the first two games in this series, we think there may well be some value in this final Satta. You can find odds of 2.00 for Under 293.5 runs to be scored between the two sides. That’s opposed to the shorter price of 1.72 to go over that level.

This could offer a safety net if West Indies continue their poor run of form with the bat. Therefore, we’ll stay with that bet to go Under 293.5. It’s intended to capitalise on two teams who have been some way below their best in this series and it will hopefully contribute to a profitable afternoon on Tuesday.

Total Runs in Match Odds Summary: Over 293.5: 1.72, Under 293.5: 2.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick).
