Today’s India vs Scotland toss and match-winner betting tips have India as red-hot favourites. Hardly surprising and in our wildest imagination, we can’t think of how this could be anything other than a comprehensive India win.
I’ve picked an explosive India batsman at a big price to top score for them. Our tips are free and exclusive to Indian readers!
There will surely be plenty of analysis around how India went about things whether their campaign ends at the Group Stages or whether they go all the way.
Why didn’t they play the wily and experienced Ravi Ashwin in the first two games? Why was Bhuvi Kumar, out of form in the IPL, picked in that fateful loss to Pakistan?
He may have got quick runs against Afghanistan but did Hardik Pandya deserve a place in the team just as a batsman? All that is to worry about another day and right now, their focus is to win this match as comfortably as possible.
Then hope Afghanistan beat New Zealand. Then see where they are with net run rates and have that in mind when they face Namibia.
They may think about picking Ishan Kishan ahead of S.Yadav.
The India vs Scotland betting odds have them as certain to win this game but having someone who can score 50 off 25 can make a huge difference to their net run rate.
First innings scores have been all over the place in Dubai. On Thursday Bangladesh stumbled to 73 against Australia and last weekend India only got 110 against New Zealand.
But this is where New Zealand got 172 against Scotland so perhaps that’s a better indication of what’s a decent score for a strong batting team against a weak bowling attack. No disrespect to Scotland.
In addition to winning the game, Kohli may have a hard time choosing what’s his best chance of improving their net run rate: batting first and getting a monster score or chasing and getting to the total as quickly as possible.
But then again, Kohli hardly ever wins tosses anyway. He’s lost all three so far.
These two have never played each other in a T20I match so we have no head to head record to consult.
India vs Scotland Toss Prediction
I can’t talk India vs Scotland toss winner statistics because there aren’t any. But I can talk about Kohli’s horrendous record at the toss in general. It was awful even before this World Cup started and has gotten even worse after he lost three in a row.
There hasn’t yet been a big upset at this tournament and this match is hardly likely to change all that. The India vs Scotland betting odds are not great t only 1.05, but it’s a clear win here.
India haven’t been at their best, far from it. But the gulf in class is obvious. India have some of the best and best-paid players in the world, whereas most of Scotland’s players are virtually amateurs. Enough said.
You’re not going to make much money from betting on India at 1.05. But it’s better than throwing your money away by betting on Scotland.
And here’s our Pure Win review where we tell you all you need to know about one of India’s top betting sites.
The two openers, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul, are favourites in this top batsman market at 3.25 and that’s for a reason.
The bookies suspect that whether they’re chasing or batting first, one or both of them will hang around for at least 10 overs and not give anyone else a chance.
That’s fair enough but it could pay to look beyond the obvious. Kohli promoted both Pandya and Pant ahead of himself in the last game so they could get on with it, and it could be a similar story here.
Pant came in at three and I wouldn’t be the slightest bit surprised if he batted there again in this one. If that’s the case, 9.5 looks a huge price, with his strike rate.
We’d be hoping for an early wicket to be in with a chance but if we get one and that Pant promotion does happen, we could be in with a real chance at those big odds.
India vs Scotland fun statistics
Let’s round things off with some quick stats ahead of the game.
All four of India’s batsmen against Afghanistan hit at least two sixes: Sharma and Pant three, Pant and Rahul two.
No Indian batsman has scored 100 runs yet across their first three games.
Bumrah and Shami are tied on three wickets for top India bowler. Shami took all three of his against Afghanistan.
Kolhli has faced just 66 balls across three games.
