What are the hot tips and best match bets for the South Group contest in the T20 tournament?
<div><h2>Derbyshire Falcons vs Leicestershire Foxes</h2><p><strong>Thursday 15 August 2019 at the County Ground</strong></p><p>Derbyshire Falcons versus Leicestershire Foxes, in truth, is not the sort of match-up that is supposed to whet the appetite in this year’s Blast. Or any other <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/cricket/cricket-vitality-blast-2019-betting-complete-guide/90331/" target="_blank" title="Cricket Vitality Blast 2019 Betting: Complete Guide">edition of the tournament</a> come to think of it . But it could be a corker.</p><p>Derbyshire are on a roll. They have won three of their last four. Worcestershire Rapids, the champions, were thrashed, Yorkshire were humiliated and they won a tight one against Northamptonshire Steelbacks.</p><p>The Foxes have found their cunning. Their last match against Northamptonshire was washed out but previously they had won two from three. The opponents they beat – and the manner in which they handed out the beating – were ex-tremely impressive. Worcestershire were downed for 119 when defending 153. Then Birmingham Bears were run ragged as the Foxes whacked 189. They then bowled out the Bears for 139. If we go back to the victory over Nottinghamshire, their three wins have come in their last four completed matches. Hashtag momen-tum.</p><p>The hosts have been made favourites with no better than 1.80 (4/5) available from Bet Victor, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betway Today!">Betway</a> and <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in game with William Hill!">William Hill</a>. The 1.73 from some firms looks a poor price as we’re struggling to split these two. The Foxes are standout at 2.1 (11/10) with Bet365, Betfred, Coral, Ladbrokes, Paddy Power and Unibet.</p><p>There is value on the top bat market. Regular readers of this section will know that we are sweet on Derbyshire’s Wayne Madsen and we were hugely unlucky not to get a winner on him last time when he couldn’t get the strike at the death. The 4.5 offered by Betfair, Coral, Ladbrokes and Unibet is value on our data. On career form in T20 we make him about a 3/1 chance to win. In 2017 he had a 42 per cent win rate and last year 25 per cent. So we know we have the edge with us on historic numbers.</p><p>If you don’t fancy a top-bat wager you can stick to the Foxes. There are far worse 2.1 shots out there.</p><p><strong>Best Bets</strong></p><ul> <li><strong>Back Wayne Madsen top Falcons bat 4.5 <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a></strong></li> <li><strong>Back Leicestershire Foxes 2.1 <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></strong></li></ul></div>
