West Indies vs Australia 3rd ODI Betting Tips 27/07/2021

Teams Status


Australia are by far the better 50-over side between these two, and it showed in the opening ODI but they were brought back down to Earth in the follow-up game on Saturday night.

The five-time world champions suffered a horrific start and at one point were 45-6, unsure if they’d even get to a 100. But as vulnerable and weak their top order was, their tail showed just as much grit and determination, helping their side reach a more than respectable 187.

The bowlers, too, did a pretty decent job and had the Windies 72-5 at one point, before  Jason Holder and Nicholas Pooran’s 93 for the sixth wicket swung the match back in the hosts’ favour.

West Indies

Pooran, for his unbeaten 59 was named the player of the match but the man on whose demolition job the entire structure of the Windies win was created was left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein.

His three wickets in a six-ball span had wobbled the Aussies so much early on that they never recovered and played catch up almost the entire game.

The victory aside, the Windies had batting problems of their own, especially when facing the excellent Mitchell Starc. He was well-supported by Adam Zampa, who got a two-for but the rest of the Aussie bowlers did not do their part and pick up wickets, which resulted in the defeat.

Another positive for the hosts will be the 52 scored by Holder, who had been alarmingly out of form since World Cup 2019.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Australia to win @ 1.79

Australia have done their part in making sure the series goes down to the wire and gets decided in the final game. Now that the winner-takes-all decider is upon us, expect the Aussies to tighten up their act and put on a much better show. At these odds (1.79 on MelBet) in an ODI game, picking Aussies over the Windies is a no-brainer.

Tip: Australia top batsman – Mitchell Marsh @ 4.0

This Aussie batting line-up is a shadow of their former self. The two batters that have done a bit well on this tour are Mitchell Marsh and captain Alex Carey. A punt can be taken on both but we think since Marsh bats up top and hasn’t really delivered in the past two ODIs, he will take it upon himself to score big. He is the senior member of this batting unit, after all. Risk lovers can back Carey to carry Australia as well (see what we did there?). The play can be found on MelBet.


Australia are weak and nowhere near the side that has won the World Cup five times. That said, their bowling still has that oomph and should find enough strength in themselves to win the series 2-1.
