Here are four cricket betting tips that Adam Drury thinks you should consider when England face New Zealand in the third Test, starting on Thursday.


Alex Lees to score over 22.5 first innings runs

Lees looked fantastic in the second Test match, crashing his way to scores of 67 and 44 in a Marcus Trescothick-esque manner.

It is worth cashing in on his form by backing him to beat a low runs line here.

Will Young to score over 18.5 runs

Young has a good track record in county cricket and proved his worth with scores of 47 and 56 in the last Test.

This looks like an extremely low runs threshold for the opener.

Matty Potts to be England’s highest first-innings wicket-taker

In the absence of Jimmy Anderson, Potts should take the new ball for England.

He has taken 10 wickets in his first two Tests and seems a fair gamble at this price.

Trent Boult to be New Zealand’s highest first-innings wicket-taker

Boult would probably have won Player of the Match at Trent Bridge had New Zealand broken the Jonny Bairstow-Ben Stokes partnership earlier and won the match.

He took three wickets in the first innings at Lord’s and five in the first innings last week.
