T20 World Cup 2024: USA v South Africa preview

After an exciting group stage of the 2024 ICC T20 World Cup, the Super Eight kicks off in Antigua on Wednesday with a clash between the USA and South Africa.

The South Africans enter this game as strong favourites at -588.24 with Bovada, while the Americans offer some value as +400 outsiders.

The USA have been the surprise of the tournament, securing two wins and a washout to finish second in Group A with five points. Outperforming sides with World Cup experience such as Pakistan and Ireland, they made the most of the home conditions.

However, progressing deeper into the tournament, they are expected to struggle as they face higher-quality opposition on quicker wickets. Top cricket bookmakers have the tournament co-hosts at the longest odds of any remaining side, as they are paying +2000 to make the final and +10000 to lift the trophy.

South Africa have endured a mixed start to the tournament despite finishing unbeaten at the top of Group D. Their batsmen have struggled on the slow American pitches, managing no better than 115 in an innings so far. They have found a way to win all their close matches, but given they beat Bangladesh by just four runs and Nepal by one run, they will need to improve significantly if they are going to compete in this tournament.

Despite this, top sports betting sites have a lot of faith in the Proteas to perform well in their remaining games, as they have the third-best odds to lift the trophy at +550.

USA v South Africa betting strategy

Competing alongside England and the West Indies in their group, the pressure is on South Africa to make an early statement and secure a big net run rate. While the USA have been impressive so far, the South Africans should be far too strong across the park, winning comfortably as -588.24 favourites.

Coming across to the West Indian pitches for the first time this tournament, the South African batsmen will hoping to improve on their poor start. Opener Reeza Hendricks entered this tournament in form with scores of 87 and 34 in matches against the West Indies in May, yet he struggled to start the tournament. Coming off 43 against Nepal in his last outing, back Hendricks at +110 to score 30 or more runs against this inexperienced USA bowling attack.

Sitting fourth on the top scorers list for the tournament, American batsman Aaron Jones has been a breakout star. With unbeaten scores of 94 and 36, he has shown he is adaptable, matching his innings to the position of the game. As the most dangerous batsman in the USA side, back Jones to score 30 or more runs at +162 with T20 cricket bookies.
