New Zealand v India 3rd ODI tips, odds update, February 11
India are still warm favourites with bookmakers for the final one-dayer in the three-match series against New Zealand, despite humbling defeats in the first two matches.
India head to Mount Maunganui with only pride to play for after the Black Caps took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series with a 22-run win at Eden Park.
This comes after the 5-0 Indian win in the T20 series, and the Indian top-order has been badly exposed with Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan on the injured list.
Prithvi Shaw looks a rare talent but a little impetuous in his two innings this series, while Mayank Agarwal needs to find runs and fast.
Meanwhile, the Kiwis should regain captain Kane Williamson for the final match after he missed the first two with a shoulder problem.
The Kiwis’ big problem in the T20 matches was their lack of bowling firepower, with Trent Boult, Lockie Ferguson and Matt Henry all injured.
But towering paceman Kyle Jamieson was man of the match in his debut ODI on Saturday, while Hamish Bennett has also stepped up. And of course veteran batsman Ross Taylor and Martin Guptill have risen to the occasion with Williamson on the sidelines.
It should be a fascinating contest with an eye to the first Test between the teams in less than a fortnight.
Read on for our New Zealand v India tips and odds update for the 3rd ODI at Bay Oval, Mount Maunganui, on Tuesday, February 11.

NZ v Ind 3rd ODI betting tips
Here are the WGL’s betting tips for the NZ-India limited-overs match on Tuesday, February 11. For more information about betting on international cricket fixtures follow the link.
Over 13.5 sixes for the match at $1.83
This is an option many bookmakers offer but it is one we don’t often recommend. However, the ODIs played at the ground in January 2019 brought big scores and an abundance of maximums. Indeed Sir Lanka clubber Thisara Perera clubbed 13 on his own in a memorable 140 in a losing effort against the Kiwis. The weather forecast looks good and this could be a run feast.
Martin Guptill NZ top scorer at $4.50
The towering opener has threatened to break out with a century and this could be his chance at a ground where he has had success in the past. Guptill is one of the most powerful batsmen in the game. With the likely return of Williamson for this match the Kiwis really have an imposing look again at the top of the order, with Ross Taylor in a purple patch of form too.
Mohammed Shami top wicket-taker for India
Shami was surprisingly rested for the second ODI with one eye on the Test series but we suspect he will be called up to add some sting to the attack. Shami did well at this ground in the ODIs against the Kiwis last year. Check the final teams an hour before the match, but if he is in Shami has the happy knack of taking wickets, even if he does go at a hefty run rate.
New Zealand v India predictions – 3rd ODI, Feb 11, 2020
As stated, recent history suggests this could be a high-scoring affair. Some sportsbooks will wager on match total runs. It would be no surprise to see around 600 scored between the teams. We expect India to hit back hard, but they really need to if they want to again reverse the momentum between these teams. At this stage the Kiwis are looking like formidable opponents for this two Tests. Good punting.
