New Zealand vs Australia Betting Tips

Teams Status

Before this series, New Zealand played against Pakistan in a two-match test series and won both matches. New Zealand also beat Pakistan in the three-match T20 series just before the test matches. New Zealand were in exceptional form in the first two matches but were outplayed by the regrouping Australian side in the third one. New Zealand won the first T20 on the back of a brilliant unbeaten 99 of just 59 balls by Devon Conway and a masterclass by the spin wizard Ish Sodhi, who bagged four wickets. And also they backed it up by yet another brilliant batting display where they scored 219 runs. Martin Guptill smashed the bowlers to all parts while scoring 97 runs off just 50 balls. He was well supported by Kane Williamson and Jimmy Neesham, who scored 53 and 45 runs respectively. In the third T20, they were bamboozled by the spin of Aston Agar as he picked six wickets. Martin Guptill is the team’s leading run-scorer with 140 runs in the first three matches. And from the bowling department, Ish Sodhi has been sensational and has bagged seven wickets.

Australia on the other hand, are coming off from a back-to-back series loss against India. They lost the T20 series 2-1 and then went on to lose the test series 2-1 against a handicapped Indian side. Even in this series, they lost the first two matches and bounced back really well. Only Joshua Philippe, Marcus Stoinis and Mitch Marsh were able to put up decent performances with the bat in the first two matches. Apart from that, not a single bowler was able to put the breaks on the firing New Zealand side. But in the 3rd T20, Glenn Maxwell made a statement that he still has the firepower in him as he scored 70 runs in just 31 balls. Even their captain Aaron Finch found some form with a blistering 69. And in the second innings, Aston Agar trapped the New Zealand batsmen in his web, as he got a six-fer. Marcus Stoinis is the team’s leading run-getter with 95 runs. And it just took one match for Aston Agar to be the team’s leading wicket-taker.

Tipster’s Angel

This is expected to be yet another high-scoring thriller as it has been in this series so far. Despite the odds are slightly in favor of New Zealand, Australia have found their groove and are more likely to win by considering the head-to-head record.

Tip: Australia To Win @ 1.93

In the last six head-to-head matches, Australia have won four matches and New Zealand have just won two matches. Both the wins for New Zealand came in the first two matches of this series, but Australia bounced back really well with a dominating 64 runs win. The out of form players like Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell found their form as both of them were exceptional in the third T20. In the last four T20 matches, New Zealand have won two and lost two matches. Even Australia has the same record as they have two wins and two losses. Australia will be really confident after the last game as they were exceptional with both bat and ball. Also, they are more likely to carry the same winning momentum into the fourth T20 and might end up winning it at 1.93 odds available at the Dafabet sportsbook.

Tip: Martin Guptill Total Runs Over 22.5 @ 1.83

Martin Guptill has been in spectacular form for the blackcaps over the years in both the limited-overs format. He has played 97 T20I’s for New Zealand so far and has scored 2761 runs at an average of 32.10 with a strike rate of 136.14. His highest score is 105, which he scored against Australia back in 2018 in Auckland. In the last five T20 matches, Guptill has scored 171 runs at an average of 34.5 including three scores over 22 runs. In the current series, he has scored 140 runs at an average of 46.66 including a highest score of 97 runs of just 50 balls. He has played ten matches against Australia and has scored 357 runs at an average of 35.70. Apart from that, he also averages 37.34 in the 52 matches that he has played in New Zealand. So, by considering these facts, Martin Guptill is more likely to score more than 22.5 runs at 1.83 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.


With that being said, a cracker of a contest is on the cards as both the teams are in spectacular form. Australia are desperate for a win here, so that they can level the series going into the fifth T20. New Zealand would want to learn from their mistakes and come out all guns blazing to close out the series in this match itself.
