The hosts England couldn’t have wished for a better start after their annihilation of South Africa in their opening game. Contrasting fortunes for their opponents Pakistan on Monday who themselves were on the receiving end of a hammering by the Windies. Form Labs bring you their betting preview and tips for the game while we bring you plenty of value with our selection of enhanced odds which can be found in our FanBoosts section.
These two sides have had polar opposite starts to their World Cup campaigns. England showed they are the real deal in beating South Africa in the tournament opener.
At half-time it looked like their 311 might be below par but that was quickly disproved with the help of a fantastic bowling display by Archer and an outstanding catch by Stokes.
The Oval pitch was much tougher to score on than expected and praise should be given to the hosts for not losing their heads when Bairstow went in the opening over.
Pakistan, though, were dismal. They were bowled out for an embarrassing 105 runs against a West Indies side who are better with the bat than the ball.
That defeat seems ominous for the Men in Green. As a side their heads can quickly drop and a couple more heavy defeats could see them competing for the wooden spoon rather than a semi-final berth.
England v Pakistan Preview
England v Pakistan Betting Tips
We confidently predicted the West Indies win on the basis of Pakistan’s woeful limited overs form.
They’ve now lost their last 11 ODIs including losing 4-0 in England earlier this month. All of England’s batters know the Pakistan attack well and in the recent series they scored over 340 runs in each completed game including chasing down 359 with five Overs to spare in the third ODI.
England have now won 11 of their last 12 matches in either ODIs or T20s and we expect their hot form to continue.
With all of England’s players in top-form and we like Overs on their runs and at least one of their stars to go big.
