Sporting Index makes predictions on a number of events and scenarios within a cricket match. The spread has two prices, a buy and a sell price. Our bet for this fixture is Travis Head. We’re strangely backing Travis Head more for his handy spinners than the fact he’s smashing it at the moment. Hurricanes have not played spin well at all this season, plus the fact they’re with our Richardson means Head will get a bowl. He’s taking a wicket every 16 balls so is a fair chance of grabbing one tonight. As mentioned Head is smashing it at the moment, he’s scored 251 runs at an average of 62. With their Sri Lankan import missing he might find he gets more time at the crease. You can buy Wright at 40 points, You can buy points for any stake, but the more each point is worth, the bigger both your liability and potential return.
So, how does Head get points? The following applies:
- 1 point per run
- 10 points per catch
- 20 points per wicket
- 25 points per stumping
If, for example, he scores 25 runs and takes two catches, and nothing else, you’re in profit if you Buy as he’ll have scored 45 points (more than the 40 point spread). If Head only scores 30 runs he would get 30 points, leaving you on -10 points. Therefore if you staked $10 a point you’d lose $100.
But if Head scores 40 runs, takes a catch and a wicket he’d score 70 points, which would result in a profit of $300 from a $10 stake. Hopefully this makes sense, but click through to the Sporting Index website for further information
