West Indies vs Australia Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back West Indies to win @ 1.79 with Pure Win
Time for our match prediction. We’ll say it again: if Mitch Marsh hadn’t played the way he did with both bat and ball and Australia would have lost again. Even then, they only won by four runs.
The Windies have been far superior all Series and even if they carry on making a few changes to experiment, they shouldn’t be weaker for it.
Unless someone else for Australia ‘does a Marsh’ I think we’ll get more of the same with Aussie batsmen not kicking on and Ausise bowlers not able to contain the Windies’ big hitter.
Let’s hope so because those are good West Indies v Australia betting odds on the hosts.

Today’s West Indies vs Australia Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Back Moises Henriques @ 7.8 @ 10CRIC
If Marsh goes out and hits a fourth fifty in five games and top scores for Australia for the fourth time in five matches then…good on him.
But it’s a huge ask and rich vein of form though he’s in, sooner or later there’s a ball with his name on it.
He’s probably already broken a few records with this extraordinary run of his but like we say, it only takes one ball and it’s extremely hard for anyone to get a score gamer after game.
And with all due respect to Marsh, fine player though he is, we certainly wouldn’t have expected it. He’s no Babar Azam, AB de Villiers or even Dawid Malan.
Instead, at the odds, I really like the chances of Moises Henriques. He’s a highly experienced campaigner, he’s already been Australia top bat once this series (the only time Marsh wasn’t) and is a good player of spin, which will be essential once again.
There’s a slight concern he may bat a bit low at five but then again, Australia have lost early wickets in just about every match.
So he should get enough time and at odds of 8.0, he’s worth chancing.
