New Zealand v India 2nd ODI tips, odds update, February 8

Australia v India T20 game one.

Bookmakers still have India as hot favourites for the second ODI against New Zealand at Eden Park, Auckland, on Saturday, February 8.
That is despite the Black Caps finally scoring a win over India at Hamilton on Wednesday after the tourists swept the T20 International series 5-0.
And what a win it was for New Zealand, with Ross Taylor leading the charge with an unbeaten century as they chased down a hefty 4-347.

It was also a timely victory as NZ’s stocks were at a low point after a 3-0 drubbing in a Test series in Australia and the T20 thrashing. They now have the opportunity to seal victory in the three-match ODI series before the two Test matches against India.
This is WGL’s odds update and tips for the second NZ v India one-day international on Saturday, February 8.
NZ should regain captain Kane Williamson (shoulder) for the final ODI at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui on Tuesday.
The Kiwis are likely to stick with the same side that won the game in Hamilton, while India will also likely stick solid given they batted well and it was only the bowling that let them down on an extremely placid pitch.

NZ v Ind 2nd ODI betting tips

Here are the WGL’s betting tips for the NZ-India limited-overs match on Saturday, February 5. For more information about betting on international cricket fixtures follow the link.

Prithvi Shaw to top score for India at $5

We are going again even though the 20-year-old opener made only 20 from 21 balls on debut on Wednesday. We have faith in the many pundits who have compared him to the incomparable Sachin Tendulkar. We are getting in early!

New Zealand to hit the most sixes at $1.80

The Kiwis have plenty of firepower and this has been a go-to in matches involving them where we think they will be competitive without being sure they will win. The likes of Guptill, Taylor and co are capable of clearing the boundary with ease.

No century in the match at $2.63

A couple of tons arrived in Wednesday’s match to Shreyas Iyer and Ross Taylor but runs might be a little harder to come by in this match.

New Zealand v India predictions – 2nd ODI, Feb 8, 2020

Both teams seem a little ragged thanks to injuries but there is plenty to play for here, with Test spots up for grabs, not to mention the T20 World Cup later this year. We lean towards India in this one just because of the toothless nature of the Kiwi attack. India lost only four wickets compiling 350-odd on Wednesday and while it was not enough, it did lay bare the lack of bowling firepower the Kiwis have without Boult, Ferguson etc. India in a slightly lower-scoring game this time around.
