Odds, picks & predictions

Australia: -525
India: +360

Moneyline pick: Australia -525

I don’t believe these teams are as far apart as the odds suggest. Australia were able to demolish India in 2020 and although the squads are almost the same from that encounter, it only takes one or two moments for things to go differently. The opening pairs for both sides will be key once again. Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney were dominant in the 2020 final, while Shafali Verma and Smriti Mandhana struggled. India’s middle order is more experienced and prepared for this encounter.

The talent gap from 1-11 is too much to pick against Australia, but the odds are not favorable and it is tough to extract value from this contest on the betting front. The defending champions likely face a few bumps in this match, although they should get through to the final once again.
