Middlesex vs Kent Betting Tips 16/07/2021

Teams Status

Kent

Kent have been in great form so far this season and sit atop the South Group with 17 points to their name. They will be hoping to build on their currently two-point lead at the top with a win over Middlesex, who contrary to their name are nowhere in the middle but right at the foot of the points table.

Kent have eight victories to their name so far – more than any other club in their group. In late June, on back-to-back nights, they had failed to win either of their two matches, with the first being a 10-wicket thrashing at the hands of Somerset and the second being a washed out game.

Since then, they have beaten Surrey twice and regained the momentum they previously seemed to have lost. Their heroes in their last game were their bowlers, who had restricted Surrey to just 128-7 before Kent top order chased down that target with ease and nine wickets to spare.

Middlesex

Middlesex are on a two-match losing streak that has seen them taking Ls from Somerset and Gloucestershire.

They are rooted to the bottom of the group standings with just seven points to their name. They have won just three of their 12 matches so far this season.

Their haul of seven points is the lowest not only in the South Group but also in North. There has been some improvement on the batting front of late though, with their batters managing to avoid any major collapses.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Kent to win at 2.452

Granted that the home advantage in this game lies with Middlesex, we can still expect Kent to work through that disadvantage and be more than competitive. They are after all the group leaders and widely thought of as genuine title contenders. The play here is to back the underdog with MelBet at odds of 2.452.

Zack Crawley total runs over 25.5 @ 1.832

Zack Crawley missed Kent’s last Vitality Blast match as he was away on international duty with England for the ODI series against Pakistan. He is back with Kent now and expected to play against Middlesex. Since he is arguably Kent’s best batter and opens the innings, it will be a good bet to back him to cover the spread of 25.5 runs. The play can be found on MelBet.

Conclusion

In the last three matches played between these sides, Kent have a losing record of 2-1 but there is a good chance that this might get evened up by the end of this match.
