Kent Spitfires vs Birmingham Bears Betting Tips 27/08/2021

Teams Status

Kent Spitfires

Kent Spitfires were the winners in South Group, thanks to a stellar campaign that saw them win nine wins, including one against Middlesex at a time when their roster was hit by a Covid outbreak and they had to use a number of fringe players.

The situation is now under control and they have a clean bill of health, which means batters such as Daniel Bell-Drummond, Jordan Cox, Zak Crawley, Jack Leaning and Joe Denly should all be available.

Fred Klaassen and Matt Milnes, both of whom have 14 wickets apiece, should spearhead the Kent bowling unit.

Birmingham Bears

Birmingham Bears were fourth at the end of their North Group campaign, with seven wins and six defeats under their belt.

They could have finished a lot higher, had they been consistent and not fizzled out after a fantastic start to the season that saw them win four of their first five matches. A mid-campaign lull all but derailed their campaign until they found some form towards the end and sealed qualification at the expense of Worcestershire.

Birmingham’s batting will certainly be dependent on Sam Hain, who has 393 runs to his name. But apart from him, everyone else fades as getting contributions from elsewhere have been a problem for the Bears. That said, Birmingham’s bowling has a number of studs and if they are to win, their bowlers will be at the forefront.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Total runs over 332.5 @ 1.832

Kent found runs hard to come by in their last two matches but Birmingham scored quite a lot in their final two games. Kent can be given the benefit of doubt as their squad was depleted over their final two games. The total runs spread has been placed at a rather modest 332.5 and with both the batting line-ups back to their full strength there is a good chance of the spread being covered. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Tip: Top batsman for Birmingham – Sam Hain @ 3.74

Hain has easily been Birmingham’s best and most productive batsman this season with 393 runs to his name. It won’t be a surprise at all if he delivers big for his side yet again in this fixture. The Bears are so reliant on him that we think he’d again top score here. The play can be found on 22Bet.


We’re not picking a winner here but obviously if we had to, we’d side with the more talented and balanced Kent.
