Back Bears for big hits in Blast
Birmingham Bears v Worcestershire
Sky Sports Cricket, 7pm Friday
Birmingham Bears went top of the North Group with a tense two-run win over holders Northamptonshire on Tuesday and they are solid favourites to beat Worcestershire.
However, the Bears are outsiders in the sixes match bet and that looks an angle for punters puzzling over the televised T20 Blast game from Edgbaston.
Birmingham have won the maximums battle in their last four completed matches, by margins of 9-4, 7-4, 8-6 and 10-4, and they are worth backing to repeat the feat.
Worcestershire’s Joe Clarke and Ross Whiteley are among the leading six-hitters in the Blast this summer, with 32 between them in seven innings, but the Bears bowlers have been in stingy form recently.
In the South Group, Surrey are 4-6 for a home victory over high-flying Glamorgan.
