Dubai Capitals v Sharjah Warriors best bets

Dubai produced a strong performance to beat MI Emirates in their first outing. They chased 160 with four overs to spare at Dubai. Admittedly it is a ground with a strong chase bias.

St the same venue the flip will again be crucial. To that end, Capitals are probably too short at a projected 1.705/7 on an immature market.
We have little time for Sharjah and in our team guide suggested they would finish bottom. the toss absolutely has to go their way.

The top-bat market for Capitals is of interest. Rovman Powell was a reliable wager last time and he is 13/27.50 from a probable No 5. That's a chop from 10/111.00 but we're prepared to keep faith as he had a win rate of 40% last year. David Warner is 5/23.50 jolly.

For Warriors we will keep an eye on Tom Kohler-Cadmore. He is currently 11/43.75 with Sportsbook but with a price boost we may play. He has very little to beat.

Sunrisers Eastern Cape v Pretoria Capitals best bets

Sunrisers, the hollers, are beginning to look ominous. They have beaten Durban Super Giants and Cape Town in their last two outings.

Their performance against Super Giants, the table toppers, is arguably the best of the season. They restricted a powerful batting line-up to 159.

Although they had a bit of a wobble with the bat, Marco Jansen's brutal cameo got them home with four balls to spare.

If this turns out to be a choice affair on the match odds then we can make a strong case. Pretoria have struggled to hit the heights of last season.

There is a top-bat price which interests us based on win rate. Phil Salt for Capitals at 5/23.50 is a wager and he could well be boosted to 3/14.00 by Sportsbook. Salt wins at a rate of 31%.

We were keen on Aiden Marrkam but having lost at 7/24.50 last time against Durban we're a little sore about the 3/14.00. He really should have copped. it might be one to revisit later in the series.
