Scotland vs Zimbabwe Betting Odds

My Scotland vs Zimbabwe betting tips didn’t hit the mark last time, but in fairness, there wouldn’t have been many who called it correctly.

Scotland were the outsiders and caused a big upset – they have shortened in the betting odds in the run-up to the 2nd game – but I’m once more backing Zimbabwe to come out on top.  You can see my free cricket betting tips below.

Venue & conditions

It was an even game between bat and ball on Wednesday – with the bowlers just about shading proceedings. The pitch should largely play the same – there will be some rain around in the morning, before clearing later in the day to allow for a full day’s play to allow my Scotland vs Zimbabwe betting predictions to come to pass.

Scotland vs Zimbabwe Toss Prediction

In a rare moment of success at the coin-toss, Scotland skipper Kyle Coetzer won the toss and elected to bat against Zimbabwe – it was their first correct call in eight international T20 matches.

Momentum is everything when it comes to the coin flip – I’m backing Scotland in the toss winner market. We are missing any meaningful data on toss statistics between these two sides – it will be only the third time they have played each other in a Twenty20 international.

Scotland vs Zimbabwe Winner Prediction

Recommended bet: Back Zimbabwe to win @ 1.7 with Betway

It was a historical day for Scotland on Wednesday, and it’s possible they can ride the wave of their surprise victory to another win at The Grange.

However, this writer is here to spoil the Scottish party. Yes, their bowlers were impressive in defending 141, but it’s the batting that concerns me – it was only a brilliant innings of 82 runs in 61 balls by veteran Matthew Berrington that stopped the Scots from collapsing.

At one stage, they were 30-4 – they can’t keep relying on Berrington to rescue them, which is why I’m predicting a Zimbabwe victory. I’m going to place my match winner bet with Betway – they have excellent pre-match and in-play odds. View our Betway review for more on this top betting site!
