Here are four cricket betting tips that Guy Giles thinks you should consider for the third Test between Australia and India, starting on Wednesday at the SCG.


Australia to win

India won the second Test by eight wickets to level the series, but the hosts should bounce back in Sydney.

Australia are unbeaten in their last nine Tests at the SCG, with their last defeat there coming in January 2011.

David Warner to score over 35.5 runs in the first innings

Warner returns to the international fold after injury in this third Test, and is likely to have a big impact.

The opening batsman has passed this mark in six of his eight first-innings efforts at the SCG – including three tons and two half-centuries.

Any player to score a century in the first innings

Batsmen tend to enjoy themselves in the first innings in Sydney, with at least one player passing 100 in the last 10 Tests there.

With the quality on show in both teams, there is no reason why this Test should see an end to that sequence.

Nathan Lyon to be Australia top bowler in the first innings

Lyon regularly shines at his home ground, taking at least three first-innings wickets in his last five Tests in Sydney.

Should he do so again, then he will be in with a great shout in this market.
