Nottinghamshire vs Worcestershire Betting Odds
Nottinghamshire Outlaws begin as the bookmakers' favorites to win this North Group clash of the Vitality Blast 2019.

Nottinghamshire vs Worcestershire Prediction
Worcestershire Rapids won the last edition of the Vitality T20 Blast and so the defending champions will be going into this game high on confidence. They won their last four games of the previous season and will look to extend their winning run in the tournament.
Nottinghamshire Outlaws, on the other hand, have the benefit of playing at their home ground but losing four of their seven matches here last year is something that they will be wary of. They, however, have the upper hand when it comes to head-to-head count with nine wins from the thirteen completed meetings.
Although both the teams have a few quality players in their ranks and neither can be written off completely, we feel Nottinghamshire due to their home advantage and decent record against Worcestershire are better placed to win this battle.
Back Nottinghamshire to beat Worcestershire at 1.61 with Bet365 and 1.55 with Betrally.
Notts vs WORCS Dream11 Prediction
Our Nottinghamshire vs Worcestershire Dream11 team is a balanced one with six players from Nottinghamshire and five from Worcestershire.
Alex Hales has been fixed at an expensive 10 credits but his ability to take the game away from the opposition makes him worth the price. Ross Whiteley of Worcestershire is a pretty decent batsman in the middle order and he can also turn his arm over if required. We have also included Jake Libby and Thomas Charles Fell in our line-up.
Harry Gurney and Patrick Brown were the best bowlers from their respective teams in last year's T20 Blast and they can be picked at 9 and 8.5 credits respectively. The latter finished as the tournament's leading wicket-taker and he could fetch some valuable points by picking wickets against Nottinghamshire. Ed Barnard and Luke Fletcher are the other two bowlers in our Dream11 team.
We have selected Daniel Christian and Wayne Parnell as the all-rounders in our Dream11 team. Christian averaged 41.50 with the bat for Nottinghamshire last year and he can be more than handy with the ball as well. The Australian is being offered at 9.5 credits while Parnell can be picked at 9.
We have preferred Nottinghamshire's Tom Moores to Worcestershire's Ben Cox for the wicketkeeper slot because of his better batting performance in the previous season and also because he bats a little higher up the order. Moores can be picked at 8.5 credits.
Daniel Christian is the captain of our team since we feel he will make an impact with both and ball.
We have picked Alex Hales as the vice-captain of our Dream11 team.
