There are some big Group Stage matches at this 2023 Cricket World Cup, and this Australia vs South Africa cricket match is definitely one that I am looking forward to watching. This 10th match of the Cricket World Cup will be played at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on the 12th of October, with the scheduled start of play being 09:30 GMT. Below you can find all of the latest odds from the best betting sites as well as my betting tips.

💯 Australia v South Africa Betting Odds

There are many entertaining cricket markets that Irish punters can choose from, and all of the best Irish bookmakers will ensure that they have most of them on offer. In the five tables that you can find below, I have supplied the betting odds that some top bookmakers are offering for some highly popular cricket markets.

Match Winner Odds: Australia v South Africa

Top Batsman Odds: Australia v South Africa

Out of the wide variety of cricket betting markets, one of my favourites happens to be the top batsman market, where you are predicting the batsman who will top score for their side. Although this is a tricky market, I like it due to its entertainment value. If you feel the same, then below are the top batsmen odds for Sa vs Aus:


David Warner4.003.803.804.004.00
Steve Smith3.753.603.603.753.75
Glenn Maxwell6.006.506.807.007.00

South Africa:

Quinton de Kock4.
Rassie van der Dussen4.334.004.104.504.50
Aiden Markram5.

Top Wicket Taker Odds: Australia v South Africa

While the top batsman market is my favourite, I do sometimes like to chance my arm at predicting the top wicket taker market. With such a wager, you are tasked with predicting the bowler who will pick up the most wickets. If two or more bowlers pick up the same number of wickets, then the bowler with the best economy will be crowned the top wicket taker.

I have chosen six bowlers in this Australia vs South Africa match that I feel will bowl extremely well, and their top wicket taker odds can be found below:


Mitchell Starc3.753.253.304.004.00
Adam Zampa4.
Pat Cummins4.334.004.104.334.33

South Africa:

Kagiso Rabada3.503.753.653.753.75
Gerald Coetzee4.
Keshav Maharaj5.005.505.504.804.80

🔍 Australia v South Africa Match Winner Prediction

This is one of those matches that is not easy to call since either can beat each other on their day. They played each other in a five-match series not long before this Cricket World Cup, and it was a fascinating series that South Africa won 3-2 after having been 2-0 after the first two matches.

In their first match against Sri Lanka, the South African batsmen were on fire, scoring well over 400 runs, and then their bowling attack restricted the Sri Lankan batting lineup and won the match comfortably. Australia, on the other hand, did not even make 200 against India and ended up losing the game by six wickets.

I was mightily impressed with South Africa in their first match, so it is for this reason that I am leaning towards South Africa to win a close match between two really good sides - despite the fact that the bookmakers have the Aussies as slight favourites.

✔️ Australia v South Africa CWC Betting Tips

Let me now give you my CWC betting tips for this South Africa-Australia cricket match:

Match Winner: South Africa to Win

South Africa and Australia have played a total of 108 matches, and the former are currently leading the way with 54 wins compared to Australia's 50. The South Africans will enter this match full of confidence after their recent series win against the Australians and their brilliant performance against Sri Lanka in their opening game.

Both of these teams have some extremely big hitters in their side as well as some express pace, which should make for a really entertaining match. If I was attending this match, I would be tempted to bring a hard hat with me as I can see plenty of balls being dispatched into the crowd.

These two teams, as can be seen from the odds that the bookmakers are offering, are pretty evenly matched, but my money is on South Africa due to recent form and results. If you agree with me, then TonyBet Sports are currently offering odds of 2.14.

Australia's Top Batsman Winner: Steve Smith to Win

With all of the big hitters on display, you would think that I would put my money on one of those to top score, but my cash is actually on Steve Smith. He is the anchor of this team, so while his teammates will be given license to try and hit the ball as hard as they can, Smith will just look to stay in and play the proper cricket shots. He top scored against India, as I predicted, and I think he will do the same again.

If you would like to bet on Steve Smith to top score for Australia, then Unibet are currently offering odds of 3.75.

South Africa's Top Batsman Winner: Quinton de Kock to Win

After their batting performance against Sri Lanka last week, it was not easy to try and predict a top batsman for South Africa for this match. However, I eventually decided to go for Quinton de Kock because he is one of my favourite opening batsmen - it is a shame that he will retire after this Cricket World Cup - and has been in some very good form lately. If Australia bowl anything wide or short at him, then he will cash in once again.

Those who want to bet on de Kock to top score will find odds of 4.25 for him to be their highest scorer.

Australia Top Wicket Taker: Mitchell Starc to Win Top Wicket Taker

Australia have always managed to develop top fast bowlers, and one of their best ones at this moment in time is Mitchell Starc. The yorker can be a devastating ball in cricket, and Starc has developed into one of the best yorker bowlers in the world - his 90+ mph yorker can be impossible to hit at times, and I would not be surprised if he splattered a few stumps in this match against South Africa.

If you want to put money on Starc to be Australia's top wicket taker, then Unibet are offering odds of 4.00.

South Africa's Top Wicket Taker: Kagiso Rabada to Win Top Wicket Taker

Kagiso Rabada is one of my favourite pace bowlers for South Africa, and the Aussies will definitely be wary of the dangers that he can bring. He has a hat-trick in all three formats of the sport, which is not something that many bowlers can lay claim to. His speed and nagging line and length are what get him his wickets, and I am picturing him taking at least three wickets against the Aussies.

If you are picturing the same thing, then Unibet are currently offering odds of 3.75.
