Bangladesh vs New Zealand prediction
New Zealand ended their seven-match losing streak against Bangladesh away from home, with an 86-run victory in the second game. However, Bangladesh do have resources in both batting and bowling departments to bounce back and level the series.
Our Prediction: Bangladesh to win this match at 83/100 (1.83).
Henry Nicholls scored 44 runs in the first ODI and followed it up with 49. He has looked solid and you can bet on him to be the top batter for New Zealand at 11/4 (3.75).

Ish Sodhi was magnificent in the previous game, picking 6 for 39. You can bet on him to be New Zealand’s top bowler at 2/1 (3.00). Mustafizur Rahman bagged 3 for 27 in the first game and backed it up with 2 for 53. Back him to be Bangladesh’s best bowler at 11/4 (3.75).
Our Prediction: Ish Sodhi to be New Zealand’s top wicket-taker at 2/1 (3.00).
