Somerset vs Lancashire 3rd Quarterfinal Betting Tips 26/08/2021

Teams Status

Lancashire

Lancashire have blown hot and cold throughout their campaign despite the obvious talent on their roster. When it really mattered though, they managed to string together victories over Northamptonshire, Durham and Yorkshire, which helped them reach the last eight of the competition.

Had they lost even one of those three games, they would have crashed out of the competition. But they didn’t and their reward was a second-place finish in North Group behind Nottinghamshire.

Lancashire will be without Finn Allen but the timely returns of Liam Livingstone and Matt Parkinson will offset the Kiwi’s absence.

Somerset

Somerset were a lot more consistent and predictable as compared to Lancashire during their campaign through the group stage.

Like Lancashire, they were also the runners-up in their South Group but finished with two more points (18) than their quarterfinal opponents.

In order to seal their qualification, Somerset had to overcome Glamorgan and Gloucestershire, which they did.

Devon Conway will be missing for Somerset, which means that the pairing of Tom Banton and Steve Davies should open the innings. Craig Overton is also away on national duty and will be unavailable.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Total runs over 336.5 @1.832

Tauton is one of the smaller grounds in England and batsmen find it quite easy to clear the fence. This is why we expect this quarterfinal encounter to have plenty of joy for the batsmen. The play here is to back both the teams to collectively score more than 336.5 runs at odds of 1.832 (22Bet).

Tip: Somerset to win @ 1.875

These two teams are very evenly matched and either can win this tie on their day. That said, Somerset looked slightly better in group stage, will have home advantage and can boast that they thrashed Lancashire by seven wickets when they last played each other in this competition over 15 years ago. This play can be found on MelBet.

Conclusion

We often say this but it’s a tossup. Neither side has a clear edge in any department. It will come down to whoever plays better cricket on the night.
