Read on for team analysis, betting odds, betting tips and match prediction for Northern Knights vs Central Districts Final, Super Smash 2017/18
None of the players were reported to be injured at the time of writing. The team is unlikely to fiddle with the winning combination.
Tim Seifert and Anton Devcich have been the most reliable batsmen for the Knights this Super Smash season. The former is amongst the leading run-getters in the tournament and he will be the key man for his side in this big final. Dean Brownlie scored a 50-ball 86 in the last game against Canterbury Kings and the team will want him to play a similar knock here as well. Bowling will depend mainly on Devcich (12 wickets in 9 matches) and Ish Sodhi (10 wickets in 6 matches).
Northern Knights will be quite happy with the way they have performed of late. They have won their last four completed matches on the trot and will therefore be carrying lots of momentum into this final game of the Super Smash 2017/18.
Central Districts don’t seem to have any injury concerns at the moment. So expect them to go with an unchanged line-up for this final.
Will Young is topping the runs charts with 326 runs and the skipper is going to hold the key to the team’s batting. Jesse Ryder has also been amongst the runs and it will be crucial that he makes a valuable contribution in this final game. Seth Rance, Blair Tickner and Ajaz Patel have been brilliant with the ball this season and it will be up to them to restrict the Knights. The trio collectively took eight wickets in the preliminary final against Auckland Aces.
Since losing to Otago Volts at New Plymouth, Central Districts have been on a four-match winning streak. They defeated Auckland Aces by 36 runs in the preliminary final and prior to that, they beat Wellington Firebirds twice in two games.
Northern Knights vs Central Districts Betting Odds
While Bet365 and Unibet both have Northern Knights as favorites to win this final match of the Super Smash 2017/18 at odds of 1.80 each, Betfair interestingly has them as outsiders at odds of 1.91. The hosts won seven and lost two out of ten matches to finish the league round as table toppers.

Northern Knights vs Central Districts Final Prediction
The two teams last faced each other in the 16th match of the ongoing season at New Plymouth where the Northern Knights registered a convincing five-wicket victory. That means they have now beaten Central Districts twice in the last three times they have played against them. The Knights also have the advantage of playing on their home ground where they have won their last two matches and they also beat the Districts here in the previous season. Momentum too will be with the hosts as they are coming off four consecutive wins and we therefore predict them to win their second Super Smash title.
