Namibia vs Scotland Betting Tips 27/10/2021

Teams Status

Scotland

Unbeaten through their qualifying round and growing increasingly confident, Scotland got a rude awakening on Monday night as they received a 130-run hammering at the hands of Afghanistan.

First, the Scottish bowlers were taken to task by the Afghan top order, as they conceded a massive total of 190, which was always going to be out of their reach but still few expected them to collapse like they did – especially after their trio of prior wins.

A paltry 60 runs is all the Scots managed as Mujeeb Ur Rehman and Rashid Khan ran circles around them, with the former claiming five wickets and the latter four.

To be fair, Afghan spinners have the capability to do this to a lot of more talented batting units. The Scots simply need to dust off their clothes, keep their chin up, and know that they are likely to face a much easier challenge from Namibia after the nightmare they were made to see by the Afghans.

Namibia

Namibia are supposed to be Group 2’s punching bags, but they start their campaign with the most winnable fixture they are going to get.

Despite their lack of overall experience, Namibia are capable of giving Scotland a run for their money, just as they did to Ireland in the qualifying round on October 22.

Their wild card and the best player is their South Africa-born allrounder David Wiese, who’s been a major factor in both of their last two matches, of which both they’ve won.

It doesn’t mean they don’t have others who can bat. Captain Gerhard Erasmus is a decent enough batter and others can have their moments too.

In all, this is as good an opportunity as anyone for Namibia to get off the mark.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: George Munsey to top score for Scotland @ 3.74

Amid all the ups and downs, one man that has been scoring steadily is our favourite Scottish batsman, George Munsey. We’ve been rooting for him ever since the Scottish plane landed in the Middle East, and he’s almost always delivered. He’s now had 10 straight double-digit scores, even if some of those latest ones haven’t been big knocks. We think he’s warmed up enough now and is primed to go big. The play here is to back Munsey to the top score for Scotland in this game @ odds of 3.74 with 22Bet.

Tip: Highest Opening Partnership – Scotland @ 1.8

We’re doubling down on Scotland’s openers today. Munsey is partnered by Scotland captain Kyle Coetzer, who himself is a pretty decent batter. The two of them together have what it takes to outscore their Namibian counterparts, which is our play here. The bet can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

We are staying clear of picking a winner here. The payout on both the favourite and the underdog is too small to make a play.
