1st ODI Betting Tips: Best Bets and Odds for Australia vs New Zealand

1st ODI Betting Tips: New Zealand is touring Australia for a three-match ODI series. The series is all set to get underway on September 06 with the first One Day International scheduled at the Cazaly’s Stadium in Cairns. Both the teams will be playing their full strength in the 50-over format and thus a good battle of cricket is expected in all three games.

Australia has been enjoying a purple patch in international cricket. However, the team suffered a shocking defeat in the last One Day International of the three-match series against Zimbabwe. The Men in Yellow last played against Zimbabwe in a three-match ODI series. The first two games saw the host winning by five and eight wickets to take a lead an unassailable lead.

However, they were subjected to a three-wicket loss in the last game. It was a poor batting performance by Australia as they ended up with a score of only 141 runs while batting first. New Zealand, on the other hand, is heading into the contest after defeating West Indies by 2-1 in a three-match ODI series. It was an all-round performance by the side as they excelled in all the facets of the game be it bowling, batting, or fielding. 

1st ODI Betting Tips: Highest Opening Partnership: New Zealand

New Zealand has more chances of having a better opening partnership compared to Australia. New Zealand has a solid top order in the form of Martin Guptill and Finn Allen. Guptill is already a legend of the game. Meanwhile, Allen has shown signs of brilliance on the international stage.

The batter is enjoying a dream ride for the Blackcaps with over five 25+ scores in his last innings. Thus, another good knock is expected from the opening batter on Tuesday. Australia, on the other hand, is doing well at the top due to the poor performance of captain Aaron Finch.

Finch isn’t in a good form. The skipper ended up with only 21 runs in three One Day Internationals against Zimbabwe. The chances of Aaron Finch making a comeback against New Zealand are slim due to their decorated bowling attack. 

1st ODI Betting Tips:

Top Australia Player: David WarnerThere’s no one better than the opening batter, David Warner, to place a bet on. The decorated opener was a delight to watch in the three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe. He ended up as the top run-scorer for his side with a whopping 164 runs at an average of 54.67. 

The 35-year-old is expected to continue his sensational performance against New Zealand as well in the first One Day International on Tuesday. Also, the home conditions give an extra edge to Warner to excel against the Blackcaps. 

1st ODI Betting Tips: Top New Zealand Player: Trent Boult

We are backing the renowned seamer Trent Boult to be the top player for New Zealand in the first One Day International. Boult was the top wicket-taking in the 50-over format during New Zealand’s tour of the West Indies. The 33-year-old picked eight wickets at an average of 15 and an economy rate of 4.62. 

For New Zealand to win, Boult will have to work his charm once again on the match field. The seamer has a good track record on the Australian pitches and the NZ fans will hope for another stunning performance from Trent Boult.
