India v England second ODI betting tips & odds
England to win
England put themselves in a great position to chase down 318 on Tuesday, but collapsed from 135-0 to 251 all out.
They’re still worth backing to bounce back as underdogs on Friday, with the white-ball leg of this tour being very even so far.
Jonny Bairstow to score over 34.5 runs
Bairstow was the main reason behind England’s strong start to their innings in the first ODI, smashing 94 from 66 balls.
This is Bairstow’s best format – he has passed this mark in four of his last six ODI innings – so looks a good bet to continue that form into Friday.
Jonny Bairstow to hit a six
It’s worth extending the above bet by backing Bairstow to clear the ropes.
He smashed seven maximums in the first match, and has hit a six in seven of the last 10 innings in which he has passed 30 in ODIs.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar to take over 1.5 wickets
Kumar was at his accurate, probing best on Tuesday, taking two wickets for just 30 runs off nine overs to help India skittle England.
His prominent position in the Indian bowling attack – featuring during the powerplay and the death overs – makes him a good bet to pass this mark again.
