Trent Rockets vs Oval Invincibles Betting Odds

Today’s Hundred betting odds have the Rockets as marginal favourites.

These are two sides who are exactly 3/4 from their games so far and look extremely well-matched.

So in our cricket predictions, we’re not picking one or the other pre-match.

Instead, we’re going with the side who makes the slightly slower start and hits 2.5 in live betting, whoever that may be. It could be a good strategy, so let’s hope it pays off.

I’ll also give you my prediction for who can win the toss and my Hot Bet, a betting tip at bigger odds than usual, that is normally a top batsman or top bowler selection.

In this case, it’s an in-form bowler fresh from a superb display on Monday night.

Find out who I’m going for here.

Bet Odds Site
Winner: Whichever team hits 2.5 in Live Betting first. 2.5
Toss: Trent Rockets. 1.9
HOT BET: Luke Wood to be Trent Rockets Top Bowler. 4.33

Trent Rockets v Oval Invincibles Betting Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back whichever side reaches 2.5 first in Live Betting @ 2.5 with Pure Win.

In terms of online cricket betting, the hosts, the Trent Rockets, are the slight favourites.

You could argue there’s not much to choose between them with both sides having won three of their four matches so far.

You could also argue that the Rockets aren’t quite the same side without Rashid Khan, who is currently on international duty with Afghanistan in Ireland.

Tabraiz Shamsi is an adequate replacement for Khan as a bowler but the Afghan leg spinner also brings something to the table as both a batsman and gun fielder so maybe it’s not quite the same having Shamsi in for Khan after all.

When you consider that the Rockets were better last year and have home advantage here, you’d think that just about makes up for the fact they’re fresh from a poor display against the Phoenix on Monday night. And that they’re missing star man Rashid Khan.

On Monday, only a blistering innings from Daniel Sams, alongside some big-hitting from Lewis Gregory as well, gave their total any respectability. But the Phoenix chased it quite comfortably anyway.

Either way, these are very hard to split. So we won’t.

Instead, we’ll adopt a strategy of backing whichever side reaches 2.5 in live betting first.

Whichever that is, back them at those odds and given we think this is a 50/50 game, you’ll be in with a good chance of winning at considerably better odds than even money.

Trent Rockets vs Oval Invincibles Hot Bet Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back Luke Wood to be Trent Rockets Top Bowler @ 4.33 with Betway

Luke Wood may have to bide his time for an England call-up to their T20 side but he’s giving himself every chance of one in the future with some fine displays in The Hundred.

His economy rate of 8.72 is good rather than brilliant. But more to the point, he’s taken a shine to this tournament and is one of those bowlers who always gives himself a chance of taking wickets by bowling straight, bringing caught, LBW and bowled into the equation.

Admittedly, Daniel Sams has six wickets while Wood is tied with Samit Patel on five.

But Wood has bowled 15 out of 16 possible overs so far so will have every chance and is fresh from a superb display in the last match with 3/17.

So comes into the match in great form.

At 4.33, he’ll give you a good run for your money.

Venue & conditions

There’s only been one match at Trent Bridge in Nottingham so far.

Birmingham Phoenix posted a decent-looking 143/7 which was chased pretty comfortably by the Rockets, who got there with three balls to spare.

The Rockets’ Alex Hales hit a super 58 off 41 in the chase while earlier Daniel Sams took three wickets so those are two players who had a good outing the last time they were here and are ones to keep an eye on in the top bowler and batsman markets.

As regards last season, 126, 132, 166 and 135 were the first innings scores in Nottingham, which comes to an average of 139.75.

In three out of those four matches, the winner was the chaser.

So 140 looks bang on the money in terms of a par score batting first but more often than not, that hasn’t been enough, with the chaser being in pole position as long as the team batting first doesn’t get to 150 or more.
