The best cricket betting podcast around returns for show 81 with the PSL T20 tournament the focus
“This week, the boys analyse the bottom three teams in the betting – Quetta Gladiators, Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi”
The Cricket….Only Bettor crew return to your ears once again, whispering the sweet everythings about cricket betting in show 81. Despite the on-field action being slim on the ground, there is plenty to digest with much-neeed research time required to make the most of the busy weeks ahead.
Sam Collins is once again asking the questions to betting.betfair duo Ed Hawkins and Paul Krishnamurty and Sportinglife.com’s Richard Mann.
On the agenda is a discussion surrounding England’s potential XI for the first Test of the summer against New Zealand (starts June 2). With injuries and absentees ravaging the hosts, they face the prospect of sending a reserve team to face the No 2 side in the world. How will they line up? How does this affect the odds? And should England really be skinny favourites?
The meat of the show is part one of the Pakistan Super League preview. The tournament is slated to start again on June 1 after it was postponed due to the pandemic. This week, the boys analyse the bottom three teams in the betting - Quetta Gladiators, Multan Sultans and Peshawar Zalmi.
With teams having to revamp their squads because of player unavailability, how relevant will the results pre-postponement prove? Quetta, who are bottom of the table, have arguably strengthened their squad with the addition of Andre Russell.
Can Multan Sultans cope with the loss of James Vince and Carlos Brathwaite? And are Peshawar Zalmi, who have an identical record as the favourites Karachi Kings in joint-second, the value on the outright? Betfair Sportsbook rate them at 7/2 fourth-favourites despite two wins from the final five matches guaranteeing a play-off berth.
Finally, next week’s Best Bets are teed up with Paul and Richard set to go head-to-head. Both reveal their likely strategies for coming out on top with five units available each for their top-rated wagers. Who will win the cricket betting war?
