The 19th game of the Cricket World Cup 2023 will take place at Lucknow's Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, at 06:00 GMT. The Netherlands will be battling it out against Pakistan, and it is a more difficult game to predict that it was a few weeks ago. The Dutch shocked South Africa in their last match, while Sri Lanka are winless in three. Read on to find out who I think will win as well as the odds being offered by some of the best cricket betting sites.

💯 Netherlands v Sri Lanka Betting Odds

When you are betting on any sport, it is always best to have plenty of markets available to you, and this will certainly be the case when you are cricket betting. Boredom is something that should not creep into play when it comes to placing cricket bets, and the three markets that I recommend you take a closer look at are match winner, top bowler, and top batsman.

Below I have given you the updated betting odds for these markets for this Netherlands vs Sri Lanka match:

Match Winner Odds: Netherlands v Pakistan

Below are the match winner odds from five top cricket bookmakers for SL vs NED:

Sri Lanka1.

Top Batsman Odds: Netherlands v Sri Lanka

In my opinion, more importance should be placed on having fun than winning money when it comes to sports betting, and the market for Top Batsman is one that provides plenty of entertainment. With this market, you will feel that you are facing every ball that your selected batsman faces. If he gets out to a low score, you will feel disappointed just like he will. Yes, this is an entertaining market, but I must point out that it is not an easy one since a small mistake can spell doom for your batsman and wager.

Below you can see the top batsman odds for three players from the Netherlands and Sri Lanka who have a good chance of winning this market:


Colin Ackermann4.503.60
Max O'Dowd4.504.00
Vikramjit Singh5.004.50

Sri Lanka:

Pathum Nissanka4.503.00
Kusal Mendis4.002.87
Dimuth Karunaratne5.003.50

Top Wicket Taker Odds: Netherlands v Sri Lanka

Sometimes you might not know an awful lot about the batsmen in a team, but think that you have more knowledge about their bowlers. This is totally fine as there is a top wicket taker market that you can think about making use of. If two or more bowlers are tied on the number of wickets taken, then their bowling economy will be the deciding factor. This is slightly easier than the top batsman market as bowlers can make more than one costly mistake.

Below I have provided you with the top wicket taker odds for three potential top wicket takers from both teams:


Logan Van Beek4.503.60
Bas De Leede4.503.25
Aryan Dutt5.004.00

Sri Lanka:

Dilshan Madushanka3.503.25
Dunith Nethmika Wellalage5.003.75
Chamika Karunaratne5.504.33

🔍 Netherlands v Sri Lanka Match Winner Prediction

When this World Cup started a few weeks ago, many would have considered this fixture to be an easy win for Sri Lanka, but now I am sure that many are second-guessing themselves. The Netherlands shocked the cricketing world with a win over South Africa in their last match, while Sri Lanka have not won any of the games that they have played. To be honest, I am quite surprised at the very short odds that the bookmakers are offering for Sri Lanka.

The Dutch have proved that they are no mugs with bat or ball in hand, and if Sri Lanka do not play to the best of their ability, then there is a really good chance that the Netherlands will pick up their second World Cup win. This Sri Lanka team is very young and is missing players with big-match experience, which is why I think they are struggling. The talent is there, for sure, but they are being undone by their inexperience.

For this game, I am going to go against the odds that the bookies are offering and predict the Netherlands to come out on top as they will be buoyed after their win against the Proteas. On the other hand, Sri Lanka have hit a losing streak, and it can be notoriously difficult to break such streaks.

✔️ Netherlands v Sri Lanka CWC Betting Tips

Let me now supply you with some CWC betting tips for this Sri Lanka vs Netherlands match:

Match Winner: Netherlands to Win

Who leads the way when it comes to previous ODI matches between these two countries? Well, they have played just five matches, and Sri Lanka have a 100% record, having each one of them. However, due to the form that the Dutch are in and the fact that they have more international experience in their ranks, I do think they will pick up their first win against the Sri Lankans.

In the three World Cup matches that they have played so far, I have been more impressed by the Dutch than I have with the Sri Lankans, which is something that I would not have envisaged a few weeks ago. Their top order has not been firing on all cylinders, but if they can navigate the first ten overs with little damage, then they should be able to cash in when the pressure increases on the young Sri Lankan bowlers.

Many cricket bettors will probably be looking at a Sri Lanka win, but they are doing this on their reputation alone and not their current form. I really do think that the Dutch will win this match, and Spreadex Sports are currently offering odds of 4.00 for such an outcome.

Netherlands' Top Batsman Winner: Colin Ackermann to Win

In the last few matches, I have backed Max O'Dowd to top score for the Dutch, but he has not scored any decent number of runs, so I decided to do him a favour and back someone else instead - now watch him go hit a century. I have decided to go for Colin Ackermann instead, although I have not seen an awful lot of him. However, from what I have seen, he seems like a very accomplished and confident batter, which is highlighted by his average of close to 40.00.

If you want to bet on Ackermann to top score for the Netherlands, then William Hill are offering odds of 4.50.

Sri Lanka's Top Batsman Winner: Kusal Mendis to Win

Sri Lanka have produced some amazing batsmen down the years such as Dilshan, Jayawardene, Jayasuriya, and Sangakkara, and another one that could end up being up there with these greats is Kusal Mendis. He has the temperament and the technique to plunder runs in any format of the sport, and he has already got some big runs at this World Cup. He is undoubtedly the batsman that the Dutch will want back in the pavilion as quickly as possible.

If you agree with me and think that Mendis will be the top scorer for Sri Lanka, then William Hill have odds of 4.00 on offer.

Netherlands' Top Wicket Taker: Logan van Beek to Win Top Wicket Taker

Logan van Beek has impressed me with his bowling in this tournament, and I can see his variation in pace and style causing plenty of issues for Sri Lanka's batsmen. Against the South Africans, he knocked over Miller and Klaasen, who are two of the most dangerous players in South Africa's side. This will have given him plenty of confidence heading into this match against Sri Lanka.

If you feel that van Beek will be the best bowler for the Netherlands, then you can find odds of 4.50 at William Hill.

Sri Lanka's Top Wicket Taker: Dilshan Madushanka to Win Top Wicket Taker

Dilshan Madushanka has only played 9 ODI matches in his career, but he has already shown us that he has what it takes to have success at this level. He has picked up 17 wickets at an impressive average of 23.82, and he was their best bowler in their defeat against Australia. He picked up the wickets of Marnus Labuschagne, David Warner, and Steve Smith, who are three of the best batsmen in the world.

If you think Madushanka will bowl the best against the Dutch, then you can make use of odds of 3.50 at William Hill.
