Here are four cricket betting tips that Guy Giles thinks you should consider for the second ODI between England and Sri Lanka at the Oval on Thursday.


England to score over 59.5 runs in Powerplay 1

England tend to be aggressive early on in ODIs, racking up 74 runs in their opening 10 overs in the first match of the series on Tuesday.

They have now passed this mark in four of their previous five ODIs, with the one exception being a score of 59 for no loss against India in Pune in March.

Liam Livingstone to score over 31.5 runs

Livingstone has made an impressive start to his international career despite falling for just nine in the first ODI against Sri Lanka.

The Lancashire batsman looked comfortable before his dismissal, though, and currently averages 36 in this format.

Kusal Perera to be Sri Lanka’s top batsman

If not for Perera’s 73 in the first ODI, Sri Lanka would have been beaten by a lot more than five wickets.

The skipper will need to go big again for the visitors to stand any chance at the Oval.

Dushmantha Chameera to be Sri Lanka’s top bowler

Chameera continued his impressive tour with three wickets in the first match to top this market outright.

He bowls with more pace and swing than anyone else in the Sri Lanka squad, and should be in with a shout again on Thursday.
