Cricket Betting: Top Matches Of The Week

With the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup a few days away, the countries that will be participating in the World Cup, have started playing games to get them ready for the tournament. There are a few games on the schedule this week, between some of the participants in this year's World Cup, we will take a quick look at them, and provide you with some cricket betting tips.

South Africa has been playing West Indies in a 5 day ODI series that began on the 16th of January, and currently lead the series 3-1, winning the first two games by a combined 209 runs, and the third by 9 wickets, before West Indies won the last game on Sunday by 1 wicket. The final game will be played on Wednesday, January 28, and the South Africans will be getting a big boost, because their wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock, will be making his return to the lineup, after missing five weeks with torn ligaments. The news keeps getting worse for the West Indies squad, who have been struggling lately, with their big batters not playing well, and spinner Sunil Narine, deciding to pull himself out of the squad. 

Australia, England, and India have been playing in the Australian Tri-Series since the 16th of January, and both teams will meet for the second time in the series on Friday, January 30.

In their first match, England got its biggest win over India, beating India with 135 balls to spare, thanks to the heroics of Steve Finn, who won the man of the match honors. Their 9 wicket win was also their largest over India, matching the record set in 1982. The team will be hoping for a similar result in this game, which will give them some extra confidence, heading into the World Cup.

Betting Odds: India is favored to win this match, the money line is -130, while England's money line is +110.

Prediction: India will bounce back from its biggest loss to England, and win the match.

New Zealand defeated Pakistan in their ODI series in December and will be playing them in a day and night series this week.

New Zealand vs Pakistan, Saturday, January 31, Day/Night Series.

When these two countries met in the ODI series in December, New Zealand lost two of the first three matches, before winning the final two matches by a combined 75 runs, led by captain Kane Williamson, who had a spectacular run, and has eight 50 plus scores in the last 10 ODI innings he has played in. The Black Tops will be looking to continue their recent success against Pakistan this weekend.

Betting Odds: Although the cricket betting odds for this match are not yet available, Pakistan is expected to win the match. 

Prediction: Pakistan will get the win against New Zealand.

Sri Lanka vs. New Zealand, 7th ODI, Wednesday, January 28.

Sri Lanka and New Zealand will be playing the 7th and final game of their ODI series, which has been dominated by the Black Tops, who have won four of the six matches played, with Sri Lanka getting only one win. The last two matches were not close, with New Zealand winning them by a combined 228 runs, but Sri Lanka will try to salvage some pride with a win in the final match of the series. New Zealand's recent run will make them a favorite going into the World Cup, while the Sri Lanka cricket team, will need an impressive run, to make it back to the World Cup final, for the third straight time.

Betting Odds: New Zealand is favored to win this match, the money line is -180, while Sri Lanka's money line is +150.

Prediction: New Zealand will continue their domination in the ODI series, and win this match.
