New Zealand vs Scotland Betting Tips 03/11/2021

Teams Status

New Zealand

From the two games they’ve played so far in the T20 World Cup, what we’ve learned about New Zealand is that their bowling is brilliant and can give many batting units a run for their money.

Against Pakistan, they had less than a decent total to defend but their combination of pace and spin made a match of it and would have won the game, had it not been for Shoaib Malik and Asif Ali’s clutch heroics.

Against India, the Kiwi bowlers had the first go and they completely flatted Virat Kohli and Co, with Trent Boult channeling his inner Shaheen Afridi as he said he would.

Then makeshift opener Daryl Mitchell shows with his 49-run knock that he is more than comfortable in his new role as New Zealand got to the target with ease, pushed India to the brink of tournament exit, and took a giant leap towards semi-finals, although right now they are only third on the table.

Scotland

Scotland still have a mathematical chance of qualification but let’s not kid ourselves. The European side, which has lost two in two, is all but going through the motions here.

Their best chance to get off the mark was the game against Namibia. They batted first and only managed 109-8, which effectively killed the game, even though their bowlers tried hard but in vain to get something from the match.

Another sad part of the game was seeing George Munsey’s streak of double-digit scores come to an end against the easiest of oppositions. He was out for a golden duck.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Martin Guptill Will Score (50) Runs – Yes @ 3.0

Martin Guptil has had starts of late but hasn’t delivered big innings as we expected. This is his chance to break free of the shackles and contribute a score in excess of 50 runs. The odds and this play have been sourced from 22Bet.

Tip: George Munsey Total Runs Over (15.5) @ 1.8

Munsey, as explained above, was out on the first ball against Namibia. Prior to that, he had a long list of double-digit contributions. We expect him to bounce back right away. Therefore, the play here is to back Munsey to score more than 15.5 runs at odds of 1.80 with 22Bet.

Conclusion

Anything other than a dominant New Zealand win should be a major surprise.
