<div><h2><strong>Surrey vs Middlesex</strong></h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/eng/t-20-vitality-blast/surrey-vs-middlesex-3838569/?mtid=6" target="_blank" title="Surrey vs Middlesex Odds Board"><strong>Tuesday 23 July 2019 at The Oval</strong></a></p><p>Surrey and Middlesex, two of the biggest clubs in the land, will fancy their chances of a significant title bid, not least because both sides can boast an extraordinary array of international talent. <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/cricket/cricket-vitality-blast-2019-betting-winner-mar-ket/90330/" target="_blank">This is like an Indian Premier League match-up given the international stars on show</a>.</p><p>Surrey can boast nine current or former international platers. Most notable of which being Aaron Finch, the Australia ODI captain, South African spin genius Imran Tahir and Liam Plun-kett, England’s World Cup-winning pace bowler.</p><p>Middlesex could welcome back Eoin Morgan, Plunkett’s skip-per, but it’s arguable they don’t need him. They splashed out big on the capture of Ab De Villiers in the close-season and the South Africa legend rewarded his new county with a match-winning knock against Essex in their first outing of the cam-paign. The second overseas spot is taken by Mujeeb ur Rah-man, the spin whizz from Afghanistan.</p><p>Middlesex need that sort of quality to reverse an awful record against their cross-city rivals. Although these clashes are much-hyped they are often uncompetitive – Surrey have won 12 of the last 18.</p><p>Bet365, Betfair, Betfred, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=3e56a0bf-7bdf-4fe1-b9a6-d22c7cc3dd2c&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in the game with Betway!">Betway</a>, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Place your bets with Coral">Coral</a>, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">Ladbrokes</a>, Paddy Power, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Well rated bookmaker">William Hill</a> and <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in the game with Unibet">Unibet</a> all go 2.0 (evens) about Mid-dlesex here, probably because of that head-to-head. But it is rare that we can get with a team including AB at such odds.</p><p 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></p><p>Despite AB’s undoubted talent he may best swerved for top runscorer honours. For some bizarre reason, he is not batting until two wickets down. Given that T20 is all about giving your most dangerous hitters maximum opportunity to do maximum damage, it is brainless he is not opening. We’re dumbstruck he’s not even at No 3.</p><p>If one needed further proof that top-bat markets are priced on nothing else but reputation, check AB’s position at the head of the betting. He’s classy, sure, but he has a slimmer chance of top scoring than a man who will be given the opportunity to bat the full 20 overs.</p><p>For that reason, we’ll get with Paul Stirling <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Top Rated Bookmakers">at 4.5 (7/2) with Bet365</a>, <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="A+ Bookmaker">Betfair</a> or <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Place your bets with Paddy Power">Paddy Power</a>. Last season he copped 28 per cent of the time. That’s a [3.57] chance. He opens.</p><p><strong>Best Bet:</strong></p><ul> <li>Back Paul Stirling top Middlesex bat 7/2 Betfair</li></ul></div>
