Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Saint Lucia Kings Betting Odds

We’re going to give you the best cricket betting tips on this game, plus of course today’s CPL odds on it.

The Warriors were stunned on Tuesday by Barbados Royals and now find themselves in a pickle as the race to the playoff heats up.

Saint Lucia Kings, on the other hand, are a tad bit more comfortable at the moment and a win here would all but seal the final four berth for them.

I’m going to back Saint Lucia Kings here.

Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Saint Lucia Kings Betting Tips & Predictions - CPL 2021

Guyana Amazon Warriors Team News

Two matches in a span of 24 hours are no easy feat for any team, but such is the life in the CPL 2021.

The last time Guyana Amazon Warriors had a fixture like this, they almost ended up losing the first one (defeated Trinbago Knight Riders in Super Over) and lost the second one to none other than the Kings themselves.

Five days later, they are in the same position again and in all fairness, their prospects are not looking that great.

The Amazon Warriors fell to Barbados Royals by 45 runs on Tuesday in a match where their opponents put up a spirited performance.

Bowling first, the Warriors failed to restrict the Royals to a small total and ended up with a humungous score of 185 runs to chase. When they came on to bat, the best they could do is respond with 140 runs all out with Mohammad Hafeez and Odean Smith being the largest contributors.

Combined with the first-leg defeat incurred by the Warriors against the Kings, the Nicholas Pooran-led side faces an uphill task of rising to the occasion. The pressure would be high on Romario Shepherd and Imran Tahir to step up and bowl well in this critical encounter.

Likely XI: Hafeez, Hemraj, Smith, Hetmyer, Malik, Pooran, King, Shepherd, Ul-Haq, Tahir, Smith.

St Lucia Kings Team News

Saint Lucia Kings are heading into this fixture after a well-deserved rest of two and a half days which, in this high-pressure tournament, is much needed.

More impressively, the Kings have won three of their last four matches in the league which effectively puts them in third place with a firm grip on the playoffs.

Most recently, they defeated St Kitts & Nevis Patriots by 6 wickets after chasing a small total of 118 runs. The match previous to this was the reverse-fixture where the Patriots were handed an even more humiliating defeat – this time by 100 runs. Faf du Plessis’s knock of 120 runs propelled the Kings to 224-2 – the second-highest total in this year’s Caribbean Premier League.

By the looks of it, Saint Lucia Kings have relied more on their batting than bowling although, the likes of Kesrick Williams and Jeavor Royal have already added 15 wickets between them this season.

Batting wise, there is plenty of talent to go about with Du Plessis, Roston Chase, and Andre Fletcher batting in a fine form.

Likely XI: Fletcher, Cornwall, Du Plessis, Chase, Deyal, David, Patel, Paul, Joseph, Riaz, Williams.

Venue & conditions

The last couple of matches at Warner Park have seen fairly high totals in the first innings, in addition to watching the team batting second struggle to chase the target.

That may give some clue to the captains on what to do if they win the toss but this being an evening fixture, the side with a strong batting pedigree may choose to bowl first. As for the conditions, they are expected to remain crisp and warm with no rain.

Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Saint Lucia Kings Head-to-Head

These two have played each other 17 times with the Kings now trailing 7-10 following the win last week.

Given Guyana’s inconsistency and shaky form of late, we can expect the Kings to close down that gap further.

Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Saint Lucia Kings Toss Prediction

At the toss, it’s been the Kings who have had the better of things, but only marginally.

Plus, the Warriors won the toss last evening so this time around, giving me all the more reason to back the Kings to win the toss.

Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Saint Lucia Kings Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back Saint Lucia Kings to win @ 1.7 with Pure Win 

On paper, Saint Lucia Kings have a considerably stronger squad than their Guyana counterparts. Batting and bowling wise, things have gone well for them this season.

As for the Amazons, they have had to rely on individual brilliance now and then to get through but when it comes to consistency, they can benefit from some improvement.

That said, the Kings are placed third in the table while their present-match rivals are right below them. Things are still neck and neck in the tournament and it can very well go either way. But for now, let’s back the Kings to win this – after all, they are well-rested, in-form, and have the wave of momentum on their side.

Guyana Amazon Warriors vs Saint Lucia Kings Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Back Kesrick Williams to be Top Bowler for Kings @ 4.30 with 10 CRIC.

Nine wickets in five matches with an economy of under 8.00 – Kesrick Williams is enjoying a fine tournament in Basseterre. He is one of the key bowlers for Saint Lucia Kings and has got the skillset to become the top bowler on Wednesday evening. The last time he bowled against the Warriors, his figures were 2-7 in 2.5 overs.

Moreover, even though Wahab Riaz and Jeavor Royal are available at slightly higher prices, it is Williams who has performed a bit more consistently this season.
