England vs Bangladesh betting predictions and preview

England v Bangladesh
Venue: Cardiff Wales Stadium, Saturday, June 8, 10.30am (British time)
Head to head odds: England $1.14; Bangladesh $5.50
Last time they met: England 2-308 (47.2 over) d Bangladesh 6-305 (50 overs) at The Oval, London, June 1, 2017.

Bangladesh have been fantastic in this tournament so far for a win and loss but need to step it up again for an England team that will stung into action by their loss to Pakistan on Monday.

While we expect England to click back into gear with their hyper-aggressive batting approach, they will need to bring their A game. Their recent record against Bangladesh is not great, with the teams splitting the past eight one-dayers between the teams 4-4. The includes the Tigers’ famous win at the 2015 World Cup in Adelaide, when they helped ensure England did not advance out of the first stage.

So the odds on an England win seems a little short to us to unleash our bankroll but we have unearthed a few other options to try to turn a profut out of the game.

This has been among the lowest-scoring venues of the tournament so far, so it should make for an intriguing contest. England need a few more of their stars to find the kind of form Joe Root is in. Especially the opening pair for Jason Roy and Jonny Bairstow.

Meanwhile, Bangladesh pushed New Zealand to the limit and appear set to enjoy their best World Cup; they are no longer minnows of the game. In fact, they have a fair claim to be the second-best subcontinental side behind the powerful Indians.

This one should be a cracker and you can find all sorts of market variations at William Hill, one of the world’s leading cricket bookmakers.

Top batter prediction: Batting has been tough at this ground in the two previous World Cup 2019 matches there, so we expect the class to shine through with Joe Root, who we tipped to top score against Pakistan. We will go again on Root, who always places a high price on his wicket. Not so confident on Bangladesh but Liton Das is due to make his presence felt with a big score.

Top bowler tip: It has been a mix of bowlers who have done the damage in the previous games at Cardiff Wales Stadium over the past week. The conditions should suit the seamers well enough for Chris Woakes to back up his three-wicket performance against Pakistan with another bag. Mashrafe Mortaza ($5) is due to have a big one for Bangladesh so will have a small bet on him this time.

WGL best bets: England v Bangladesh

Each of our ICC World Cup betting previews will highlight some potential wins for punters, or where our cricket tipsters think there is value to be found.

Ben Stokes man of the match

Stokes was in great touch in the first match and is a good chance of getting substantial batting time here, while his seam bowling could also cause problems for Bangladesh if there is any movement around. He is also a superstar in the field. The $11 on offer with William Hill is tempting and on the day of match you might be able to secure a better price with the sports bookie offering plenty of specials.

England to hit most sixes and win the match

We expect a devastating response from the world No.1 ODI side, and they have plenty of batsman who love to go on the attack early. We expect them to rack up a big score if they bat first and to win this match comfortable. The odds on offer of $1.67 are tight but they say little fish are sweet!

England v Bangladesh prediction

This match could have a very different look depending on who bats first. If England get that chance we expect them to emphatically put their campaign for the elusive World Cup title back on track. That’s the way we are betting too. We will try some of the various options with England in the ascendancy.
