But Hampshire have lost four while Gloucester managed a tie. We should have a competitive heat on our hands.

These odds have been chalked up purely on the basis of Hampshire having players the layers have heard of.</p><p>Not surprisingly, we’re leaning to a punt on the home team. They have won two of their last three matches and were involved in a tight game against Middlesex last time out. The rain ru-ined what could have been a thrilling finish. Gloucestershire have competed well this term, beating Kent and running Sussex close.</p><p>Hampshire have lost their last two, including a terrible beating at the hands of Somerset in their last outing. At the start of the campaign we feared that Hampshire did not possess the required level of smarts and guts to go deep into this competition. And we’ve seen little evi-dence that we were wrong.</p><p>There is no doubt they have quality individual players – James Vince, Kyle Abbott, Liam Dawson and Chris Morris for example – but they are not working as a group. Gloucestershire are the epitome of a spirited squad who squeeze every last drop from their collective ability. That always floats a punter’s boat, particularly when we can get odds against.</p><p>The one negative about a gamble on the Glosters is an injury to Benny Howell. He is often their best bowler and they will mis his experience. AJ Tye, the revered Aussie, will have to be at his best. Likewise the redoubtable David Payne. By the way, the weather forecast is pretty good so we should get a full game.</p><p><strong>Best Bet:</strong></p><ul> <li>Back Gloucestershire at 2/1 <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">Betfair</a></li></ul><div> </div><div style="text-align:center"><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&amp;a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%" /></a></div></div>
