English T20 Blast, 2018
Middlesex vs Somerset
The mecca of cricket ‘Lords’ will be hosting the next contest of the English Vitality Blast 2018 which will be played between two South Group teams, Middlesex and Somerset.
WHERE: Lord’s London
WHEN: July 19, Wednesday, 10:45 PM IST, 05:15 PM GMT, 06:15 PM Local
Middlesex haven’t shown their best game so far and they surely aren’t up to the mark, with 2 wins from 4 games they haven’t exploded to their expectations. They started off their campaign with a second last over win against Surrey, they lost two back to back games against Essex Eagles and Gloucestershire by 3 and 6 wickets respectively.
This is not the start they would have thought off but with their next game against Somerset who are also sailing in the same ship, they might fancy their chances of winning.
The story has been almost the same for Somerset as they too won their opening game against an injury-hit Gloucestershire by 6 wickets since then they have lost two back to back games against Kent and a rejuvenated Gloucestershire squad.
So, let us dig into the predictions and betting odds from the match MID vs SOM:

Northamptonshire vs Derbyshire
In the next league game from North Group, Northamptonshire Steelbacks would be welcoming the Derbyshire Falcons in aspirations to open their campaign in this edition of Vitality T20 Blast.
WHERE: County Ground, Northampton
WHEN: July 19, Wednesday, 11:00 PM IST, 05:30 PM GMT, 06:30 PM Local
Looks like the Steelbacks wait for the first win in this edition is enduring with every match they play as they have been decimated till now in every department of the game. In the North Group table, they are residing at the last spot and things are really not looking well for them.
They have lost 4 matches on the trot with the latest one against Worcestershire where seamer Matthew Parkinson ripped through their batting line-up with 4 wickets for just 9 runs as they failed to chase down a revised target of 131 runs in 9 overs by 41 runs.
Their opponents in Derbyshire Falcons have no different story to recite as they too are winless from 4 matches and are looking in deep trouble right now. With the likes of Calum MacLeod, Ben Slater, Lockie Ferguson, Wahab Riaz, the team is leveraged with some serious star power but no one has come to their aid.
The contests would be an even one as both the sides are winless at this stage but a win for either team would definitely open the floodgates.
So, let us dig into the predictions and betting odds from the match NOR vs DER:

OUR PREDICTION: As per the betting odds, we back Northamptonshire Steelbacks to win NOR vs DER.
