Nottinghamshire vs Hampshire 2nd Quarterfinal Betting Tips 25/08/2021

Teams Status

Nottinghamshire

Defending champions Nottinghamshire, who topped the North Group, will put their superb Vitality Blast record on the line when they take on Hampshire tonight.

The Outlaws have featured in 10 quarterfinals over the past 12 seasons, which is a testament to their prowess in the format. That said, they had notable defeats in 2012 and 2014, and both were against Hampshire, which shows that these two have a bit of a history.

Notts will be without their talismanic captain Dan Christian, who was called up by Australia for international duty, leaving Steven Mullaney to skipper the ship.

The home side will also be wary of the fact that there have never been back-to-back championships won in England’s topflight T20 history.

Their batting is quite star-studded, with names such as Alex Hales, Joe Clarke and Ben Duckett leading the charge. The bowling unit, however, is a bit thin and Mullaney will have to be creative with his options.

Hampshire

Hampshire did not have as stellar a campaign as Notts but they still managed to finish fourth in the South Group, thanks to a series of positive results towards the end.

They are currently riding a five-match winning streak in the competition and eyeing a sixth one, which would send them into the final four.

The main men with the bat for Hampshire will of course be Joe Weatherley, James Vince and D’Arcy Short — all three of whom have 300-plus runs in the competition.

Liam Dawson and Chris Wood have both shaken off their injuries to provide another timely boost to Hampshire.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Hampshire to win at 2.40

Notts have won four of their last five, whereas Hampshire, as explained above, have won five on the bounce. There is little to choose between the two, and as you must know by now, when that’s the case, we always lobby for the underdog to be picked. Granted that Nottinghamshire have the home advantage but other than that it’s a tossup. The play here is to back Hampshire to win @2.40 (Dafabet).

Tip: Total Runs Over 334.5 @ 1.832

The English county season is still in the trance of the inaugural The Hundred season. Several players from both these sides were also participating in the free-scoring tournament. That run-galore could, even if for a little bit, reflect in the resuming Vitality Blast. We believe the Over spread of 334.5 runs @ 1.832 will be hit. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

According to our calculations, the edge ascertained to Notts is a bit too generous and carries the weightage of their legacy in the tournament. Other than that, these sides are not as uneven as odds make them sound.
