T20 WORLD CUP | Best Bets for USA v West Indies

Following an epic clash with South Africa, USA find themselves needing a win over the West Indies to keep their T20 World Cup dream alive

Cricket fever is rife in the States, as the USA Cricket team continue to put in a respectable shift in this year’s T20 World Cup.

Our cricket expert has landed five of his last six tips on-site, and he is back with three more picks for USA’s next game on Friday night.

Here are the best bets for USA v West Indies.

THE LAND OF HOPE AND GLORY

If there’s one thing the USA team have done in this year’s T20 World Cup, it’s surprising the entire cricketing world.

The Stars and Stripes have already earned themselves a few admirers by beating Pakistan and progressing to the Super 8s – but they produced a brave batting display against South Africa and almost registered another shock victory – falling 18 runs short of success.

The West Indies are no easy opponent – they have win two T20 World Cups in 2012 and 2016 – but they were schooled by an England side last night that have been slow to get going in this tournament.

If the USA can bring a similar batting game as last time, then they could well cause some problems for the West Indies – and give themselves a chance of reaching the semi-finals.

TIP: USA Moneyline (+450, FanDuel)

ALL ABOUT STEVE

While last game was all about Andries Gous’ superb batting skills, it could now be Steven Taylor’s turn to step up.

Taylor plied his cricketing trade in the Caribbean, spending several years in the Caribbean Premier League before joining one of the franchise sides in Major League Cricket.

The 30-yard-old has had a quiet tournament to date, but he can be bullish at the crease when he’s at his best.

He could step up against a familiar foe in the West Indies – and produce a decent batting return.

Take Taylor to surpass his total, and place a small stake on him being the top USA runscorer here.

TIP: Steven Taylor Over 14.5 Runs (-112, FanDuel)
TIP: Steven Taylor Top USA Runscorer (+430, FanDuel)
