Afghanistan vs. Sri Lanka June 4 Prediction and Odds Overview

After two losses Saturday to the two 2015 finalists, Afghanistan and Sri Lanka will take to the pitch Tuesday looking for a much-needed win to kickstart their 2019 campaign.

Points Bet has the odds on this very tight, and this might be one of the closer contests of the month. Afghanistan (+104) is a slight underdog, but could easily score some runs here after posting 207 in 38.2 overs Saturday against the defending champion Australia.

On Fan Duel, the odds are even closer: Afghanistan is listed at -108, while Sri Lanka is -118.

Najibullah Zadran was the lone player to reach 50 runs for Afghanistan last time out, but it is team mate Rahmat Shah (43 Saturday) that is one of three players favored to reach a half century Tuesday, at +190. Joining him at that number are two players from Sri Lanka, Dimuth Karunaratne and Kusal Mendis.  Karunaratne scored 53 from 84 balls against a tough New Zealand team.

On the team betting front, Sri Lanka is -125 to get the most fours on 888 Sport, with Afghanistan +105. The odds flip, though, when it comes to most sixes: Afghanistan is -114, with Sri Lanka +125.

Afghanistan is -118 to have the higher total after 15 overs, with Sri Lanka -106.
