India vs England 3rd Test Tips Betting Tips
England claimed a surprise victory over India in the first Test in Chennai but they were swiftly brought down to earth as the hosts won the second game by 317 runs.
With the four-match series level at 1-1, Joe Root's men head to Ahmedabad for a day-night Test at a venue where they lost by nine wickets on the 2012 tour of India.
India vs England Betting Odds
England's 227-run win in the opening game of the series was a major shock given that India had lost just one of their previous 34 home Test matches.
Virat Kohli's side roared back in the second game, however, with Rohit Sharma scoring a brilliant 161 and Ravichandran Ashwin claiming eight wickets in the match and making a crucial century in the second innings.
India are solid favourites at 8/15 to win the third Test and take a 2-1 lead in the series and it will take something special from England to bounce back.
Root's side are 3/1 for victory but their batsmen must find a way to counter the dual threat of India's ace spinners on a turning pitch and the fast bowlers swinging the pink ball late in the day.
The draw is priced up at 11/2 and punters probably won't be rushing to back the stalemate given that England were bowled out for 134 and 164 in the second Test.
India vs England Team News
Moeen Ali, England's leading runscorer and wicket-taker in the second Test, has been rested but Jonny Bairstow, Mark Wood, James Anderson and the fit-again Zak Crawley are pushing for recalls to the 11.
Ben Foakes will continue to keep wicket as Jos Buttler has returned home and India have added experienced fast bowler Umesh Yadav to their squad.
Opener Shubman Gill has been passed fit after being struck on the arm while fielding in the second Test and paceman Jasprit Bumrah is likely to return.
India vs England Prediction
India to win - BET NOW
India responded superbly to their defeat in the first Test and with so many of their key players in great form they look well placed to record another victory.
They showed their depth of talent by winning in Australia despite a rash of injuries and England's batsmen will not look forward to facing the rested Bumrah with the pink ball.
The most recent Test match in Ahmedabad was nine years ago but it will still be fresh in the memory for India batsman Cheteshwar Pujara, who made unbeaten scores of 206 and 41 to set up a nine-wicket win against England.
The number three is still going strong and he looked primed for a big score in the first innings of the series before being caught off a rebound from short-leg for 73.
After three modest scores since then, Pujara will be determined to make a big impact in the third Test and he can be backed at 7/2 to top-score in India's first innings.

Like Pujara, Ben Stokes played well in his first innings of the series before three low scores but the dynamic left-hander is worth backing to come good with the bat.
Stokes's aggressive approach unsettled India's bowlers in his knock of 82 in the first Test and, having been rested for the Sri Lanka series, he is still working his way back to his best form.
Stokes - England Top Batsman First Innings - BET NOW
His first-innings scores in the 2016 series in India included 128 in Rajkot and 70 in Visakhapatnam so he knows he can score runs in tough conditions on the subcontinent and 4/1 looks a nice price for him to top-score.
