What are the hot tips and best bets for the second ODI contest?
<div><h2>Afghanistan vs West Indies Second ODI</h2><p><strong>Saturday 9 November, Lucknow</strong></p><p>West Indies caused something of a surprise in the first match in Lucknow on Wednesday. They won. And with ease, too. It wasn’t supposed to be that way, despite the bookies rating them hot, hot favourites. Hmm. Maybe they do know what’s what after all.</p><p>The Windies came into the contest looking like the sort of one-dimensional outfit which would fall apart in the face of determined and skilled Afghanistan spin bowling. With musclebound hitters, and a bowling attack which has been criticised for being a one-trick pony (bang it in and hope for the best), they defied the critics.</p><p>True, at one stage Afghanistan were short odds-on themselves. When Rahmat Shah and Ikram Alikhil were well set, the ‘home’ team looked on course for a big one with the score 126 for two in the 27<sup>th</sup> over. But spinners Roston Chase and Hayden Walsh then combined to derail the innings, restricting the Afghans to a below-par 194.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>It was Chase, in the chase, who won them the game, making 94. This was a bitter pill for us to swallow because we were on Shai Hope for top runscorer. Checking the score after it hurt – there’s a small total to chase, there’s Hope with a brilliant 74…wait…how did Chase score almost 50 per cent of the runs?</p><p>Do we keep the faith with Hope and go in again? You’re darn right we do. Hope has shown form and an aptitude for the situation. That’s a big tick.</p><p>We also know that in the last two years he has won this market 16 times in 52, which is a percentage win rate on implied probability of 30.7. Coral give him a 4.0 (3/1) rating. That’s an implied probability of 25 per cent. The edge, quite clearly, is with us.</p><p>Alas there is little ground form to go on in terms of sixes and four wagers because that first ODI was the first ODi to be played at the long-winded named stadium. But we suspects this is an unders affair with Bet362 2.1 (11/10) about a mark of 7.5 maximums.</p><h2>Best Bet</h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&a=acd6b93a-905e-45af-90ef-7eb1df661829&f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Cricket Betting Odds"><em><strong>Shai Hope top West Indies runscorer 4.0 Coral</strong></em></a></p></div>
