The Australian Marsh One-Day Cup has already started, but the respective teams haven’t played yet. The round-robin system among six teams means that all the matches are important.
The teams played twice in the last weeks but in the Sheffield Shield. The latter is the first-class cricket competition, where matches can last a couple of days. As it could be seen from the title, One-Day Cup is a shorter format that is played in the limited-overs format (50 for each team).
So, the previous results between the sides are totally in favour of Victoria. They smashed their opponent twice with more than 150 runs difference. It shows that the hosts are in good shape and ready to continue their win streak.

A few contrary arguments are related to the different formats of the events. Thus, the 50-overs format means more risks when batting, which puts extra pressure. Also, we should remember that New South Wales is the recent title-holder of the One-Day Cup, so they know how to win such games.
Still, Victoria is a favourite in this matchup. They are in better shape, playing at home, and in positive psychological conditions. The bookmakers offer the coefficient for their victory of 1.65, which looks like a reliable pick. Want to read more cricket predictions and don’t miss the attractive odds?
