Given the manner in which the Aussies outplayed the West Indian side in the first test match, it shouldn’t come as a surprise if they manage to win the series in this game. West Indies have already lost Jerome Taylor to injury, and unlike the Aussies, do not possess a bench strength which provides ready replacement for the beleaguered. So, despite Ben Hilfenhaus’ injury, it looks highly unlikely that the Aussies will feel the pinch of the issue. >
It also means that the Australian side will go into the game as favourites. For the West Indian side, Ramnaresh Sarwan has to still prove his fitness and without him, the middle order seems a trifle weaker. Extrabet offers 1.3 for an Australian win, whereas a West Indian equaliser will give the bettor 15 bucks from Bet365 for every buck betted.
In contrast, the England-South Africa game is more evenly fought. Despite the 2-1 lead that England enjoy, there is a historical data that says that South Africa has never lost an ODI series since 2002. So, a win here could be something that the English supporters may hope for, but according to the bookies, not be fully convinced about. >
Boylesports offer 2.375 for an English win as compared to 1.62 (at Bett365) for a South African win.
