Tipster’s Angel

This is expected to be a thriller of a series as two of the best T20 sides go head to head. The odds might favor India but it won’t be that easy as the odds suggest. By considering the head to head matches, India is more likely to win the match and also the series.

Tip: India To Win @ 1.70

In the last five head to head matches, India has won four matches, while England has just won one match. India has won two out of the last three series that they have played against England.

Also, they have just lost three matches and won 13 matches in the last five series. Apart from that India has lost just two series since 2018 which is a great feat. England on the other hand have won four of their last five series. They have lost five matches and won 11 matches in the last five series. As BCCI is allowing 50% of the crowd to come in and cheer, which gives the home advantage to India. So, India is more likely to win the match at 1.70 odds available at the Betway sportsbook.
