Gloucestershire vs Surrey Betting Tips 16/07/2021

Teams Status

Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire snapped a run of two straight defeats in the last round of the Vitality Blast, beating Middlesex by 10 runs.

They owed their victory to their lower order, which recovered from 88-5 and 117-6 to post a sizable total of 171-8. Furthermore, the bowling of Benny Howell was of critical importance as his stifling job on Middlesex batters proved the difference.

If Gloucestershire win this, they could potentially become the new leaders of South Group, overtaking both Sussex and current league leaders Kent.

Surrey

Surrey head into this game on the back of successive losses – both at the hands of Kent. While the first of their two defeats was close, the second was a heavy nine-wicket shellacking, which indicates that things might be going from bad to worse for them.

Gareth Batty and company batted first, suffered a nightmare start and never recovered. They eventually posted just 128-7, which was never going to be enough and it wasn’t.

The main culprits were Jamie Smith, Ben Geddes and Laurie Evans, none of whom managed to get into double figures and created pressure for the subsequent batters.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Gloucestershire to win @ 1.79

Gloucestershire have won two of their last three matches in all competitions whereas Surrey are winless in their last four. It’s clear to see which side is on the rise, even if Surrey has an edge in head-to-head battle (6-8) in matches played between these sides since 2015. The play here is to back Glos to get the job done at odds of 1.79 available with Dafabet.

Tip: Ian Cockbain to score over 21.5 runs

Ian Cockbain’s last four T20 scores are 31, 62*, 30* and 34. The veteran batsman has hit a purple patch and when that happens, it isn’t a difficult task to cover a spread as low as 21.5 runs. The play can be found on Dafabet.

Conclusion

There is little to choose between the two sides but Glocs do have a slight edge. If all goes according to plan and recent trend, Jack Taylor’s side should emerge as the new league leaders, even if for a little bit.
