The Hundred has gotten off to a great start and it looks like this format is going to be quite successful over the course of time. Of course, the rules are slightly different but it is still cricket and that has not changed one bit. The teams will take a little getting used to the shorter span of the game and the faster pace at which things happen, giving us some great betting opportunities along the way.
Just like the Hundred itself, the betting markets for this new format are also just a tad bit different. Let us try to find some value for bettors for this next match between Birmingham Phoenix and London Spirit.
Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Birmingham Phoenix vs London Spirit, the Hundred 2021. The match is going to be played at Edgbaston, Birmingham on the 23rd of July 2021.
Birmingham Phoenix is a strong team and seems to be very well matched for the Hundred. One of the keys in this tournament is to start strong and not waste any time. Birmingham Phoenix has three players that can do that in Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, and Finn Allen.
These are players that can hit the first ball that they face for a six but that also means that they can sometimes get out early. Players like Daniel Bell-Drummond, Adam Hose, and Tom Abell will be tasked with the job of stepping in as needed and providing support.
The bowling lineup also has three very canny bowlers. Imran Tahir, Adam Milne, and Pat Brown are likely to find a place in the playing eleven alongside perhaps Benny Howell as the fourth bowler. Liam Livingstone and Moeen Ali can both contribute with the ball to complete the quota of overs.
Birmingham is a venue where the square boundaries are large and the spinners can be very effective. Six-hitting and spin bowling appear to be the two big strengths for Birmingham Phoenix and so we think it has a great shot at victory.

London Spirit is led by Eoin Morgan, one of the best white-ball captains going around. He is someone who understands how to get the best out of players and his leadership is a definite plus in a contest like this. We don’t think he has the best players at his disposal for the Hundred 2021, though.
Zak Crawley, Dan Lawrence, Eoin Morgan, and Joe Denly are the top-order batters in the squad. Mohammad Nabi and Ravi Bopara are the top-order batters in the squad. This is not a great batting lineup and seems to lack the explosiveness that Birmingham Phoenix has.
Also, the fact that Eoin Morgan is not in the best of form makes London Spirit a bit underwhelming when it comes to the batting. Josh Inglis has been in tremendous form during the T20 Blast and he could be given the opening slot here as well. He is a definite boundary hitter and someone that can clear the boundaries quite easily.
Among the bowlers, Mohammad Amir is the biggest name on the team. He has not been at his best since 2017 and has been dropped from the Pakistan team as well. If he can get some swing early, he could pick up some wickets otherwise we would not be surprised to see him go for plenty.
Mark Wood, Mason Crane, Roelof van der Merwe, and perhaps Mohammad Nabi could all give London Spirit a pretty decent spin bowling attack as well.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. There seems to be a slight advantage for the chasing team as the number of overs in a match being played are reduced. We have seen this in T20 cricket, T20 cricket, and the Hundred could be quite similar as well.

The weather forecast for this match is pretty good and we should be able to get a full match in without any interruptions. The pitch at Edgbaston is going to be good for batting. It always has a little bit of bounce in it that both the batsmen and the bowlers can use. The square boundaries are quite large and so the spinners (or fast bowlers banging it in) are going to be tough to get away.
Something around 140-150 should be on the cards batting first for sure.

We are going to be back Birmingham Phoenix to win this match. It has a very strong batting lineup led by Liam Livingstone (he scored the fastest T20 century for England just a few days back). There is more power and six-hitting potential in Birmingham’s lineup. Also, both teams have a strong bowling lineup but Birmingham has a slight edge here as well.
Bet on Birmingham Phoenix to win.
Liam Livingstone, Moeen Ali, or Finn Allen could help you win this bet even if just one of them gets set and spends some time at the crease. We feel very comfortable backing them to get over 6 sixes in this match considering the conditions, the opposition, and the current form of the batsmen.
