South Africa v England 3rd ODI betting preview, tips, odds update
Bookmakers believe England will level the one-day series against South Africa with a victory in the final 50-over match.
This is WGL’s odds update and tips for the final one-day international of the series at The Wanderers, Johannesburg, on Sunday, February 9, 2020.
The second match in Durban was washed out on Friday, leaving a 1-1 drawn series the best outcome for the world champions, who were humbled in the opening match.
It won’t be easy given the promising way in which South Africa have bounced back from their 3-1 reversal in the Test series.
South Africa have won eight of their past nine matches at the Wanderers ground, which has at times been difficult for batting in the past few seasons.
England are firm favourites with the bookmakers but they look a lot more brittle though the middle order without Ben Stokes, the champion all-rounder who man of the series in the Tests but has been rested for the ODI component. He will be back when England and South Africa square off in three T20 contests.
Read on for our South Africa v England tips and odds update for the third ODI at The Wanderers, Johannesburg.

South Africa v England 3rd ODI betting tips
We have scoured recent results at this ground and betting markets to come up some value bets for the second one-dayer. Click here for more information about betting on cricket.
Lungi Ngidi top wicket-taker for South Africa
The right-arm paceman has proved a handful for the opposition in a couple of recent matches at this ground. He has impressive figures in his brief career to date and hopefully ha overcome a spate of injuries that have halted his progress in the past year. Ngidi is the one we think could do some damage at Wanderers.
Jason Roy man of the match at $8
Roy is a hit-or-miss type player who is always aggressive. You have your heart in your mouth sometimes, but when he is on there are few better strikers of the ball going around. He look a lot more comfortable than his opener partner Jonny Bairstow in the first match and was furious when he got out playing a lazy shot. He could be the difference between the teams here.
