Bangladesh vs Scotland Betting Tips 17/10/2021

Teams Status

Bangladesh

After beating Australia and New Zealand on their own turf over the past few months, Bangladesh were expected to do better than they have in the T20 World Cup. And they still might, but their preparations have hit the rocks, thanks to back-to-back defeats to Sri Lanka, but more importantly, Ireland.

Bangladesh, especially under the UAE circumstances, are considered a cut above Ireland. But the Tigers allowed 177 runs to the Irish batters and folded for 144 in reply.

Granted that they may not have been at their full strength or giving their all, but the result will have the Bangladesh faithful worried, even if those defeats came in the absence of star all-rounder Shakib al Hasan, who has been with his IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders all this time.

Scotland

Scotland have had a tremendous amount of practice in the Middle East over the last month. They arrived in Oman almost a month ago in September and since then have played a number of 50 and 20-over matches.

To be precise, they have played four 50-over matches in Oman and five T20Is in the UAE, which means by now they must be as accustomed to the conditions as the locals.

Since the 50-over matches are irrelevant for our purpose, we’d focus on what they did in the quintet of T20Is. And what they did was excellent. Four wins out of five can be deemed that, although a surprise defeat to Namibia shows they remain susceptible to upsets, which teams at this level often are.

Good thing is that they came back with a vengeance and defeated Namibia in their last game in what was a high-scoring match.

Their body of work has given a clear indication that the Scots have got game – at least their batters do.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Bangladesh to score less than 5.5 runs in over 1 @ 1.90

In the embarrassing loss to Ireland, Bangladesh openers Mohammad Naim and Liton Das contributed a paltry four runs combined. Their no-show was why the rest of their batting unit remained under pressure for the rest of the innings and eventually cracked. There is little chance of Naim and Das chasing early fireworks due to their display in the last game. Therefore, the play here is to back Bangladesh openers to score under 5.5 runs in the opening over of their innings. The play can be found on Dafabet.

Tip: George Munsey to score over 18.5 runs @ 1.83

Scottish opener George Munsey has been in great touch of late. The left-handed batsman has contributed double-digit scores in each of his last 10 innings, including 67 off 41 in the win over Namibia recently. With the form he is in, covering the 18.5-run spread should be a cakewalk for Munsey. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

We’re staying away from picking a winner here, which indicates our confidence level (or lack thereof) in Bangladesh. If you want to, lean towards an upset rather than a win for the favourites.
