Throughout this summer we’ve previewed some of the group games in this year’s domestic T20 and highlighted some potential bets for many of these matches.
All through the tournament it’s been really interesting to see how this format has changed from a betting perspective; in the past it was always a lottery in such a short encounter but this season it really seems that each side has such a defined strategy that you really can go on current form and even home advantage when considering a gamble.
Looking at this particular quarter final, Notts topped the North group by some margin while much fancied Somerset just scraped through in fourth place in the South. With that in mind, let’s have a look at the odds.
At the time of writing, a gamble on Notts to sail through to finals day will get you a best price of 10/11 with Sky Bet while gambling on Somerset to win will return as much as 20/19 with Unibet.
Those odds tend to reflect the standing of these two sides at the end of the group stages but the crucial point here is that all the experts felt that the south group was so much stronger than their rivals in the north.
That is hard to argue against and that would make the sides much more evenly matched. Keeping that in mind, we would suggest that you take Somerset at 20/19 straight away.
All through this tournament, we’ve been giving some tips for the highest scoring batsmen and although these particular odds have yet to be openly published, we suggest that you bet on the free scoring Alex Hales for Notts and the dangerous Peter Trego for Somerset.
