Both sides come into the Royal London One-Day Cup final in blistering form. Before we get to our Surrey vs Nottinghamshire betting prediction and players to watch, we must first preview the match between two sides that have saved their best cricket for the knockout stages. Both Surrey and Nottinghamshire crept through into the quarter-finals in third in their respective groups but have found themselves in the final and are both itching for silverware.

Key Players to watch

For Surrey, there is one main key to any success they are likely to have and that is the legend Kumar Sangakkara. The veteran Sri Lankan has been in mercurial form for his adopted county and compiled a wonderful century in the quarter-final against Yorkshire before a useful 73 helped Surrey past Worcestershire in the semi. He will need the support of the experienced Gareth Batty and the dangerous Jade Dernbach with the ball to enable them to clinch the victory. For Nottinghamshire, they have class all through the order with Alex Hales opening the batting. Samit Patel has been brilliant with the bat in recent times and is useful with the ball as well. Stuart Broad and Harry Gurney provide the main threat on what will likely be a good surface for batting at HQ.

Surrey vs Nottinghamshire recent form

Ahead of our Surrey vs Nottinghamshire odds and free prediction we first look at the recent form of the two sides. Notts have been brilliant with the bat in the knockout stages. First, they plundered 429/9 against Somerset before chasing down a seemingly imposing 370 from Essex with three balls to spare. Surrey, meanwhile, have posted two big scores over 300+ themselves and were brilliant with the ball against Worcestershire with Gareth Batty taking 5-40 against his old county.

Surrey vs Nottinghamshire head-to-head

This is the second time since the County List A competition reverted to 50-overs a side rather than the 40 it was previously. The only other occasion was the 2015 Royal London One-Day Cup semi-final where Surrey posted 300/5 and successfully defended it, winning through by four runs. They went on to lose to Gloucestershire in the final of the competition.

Surrey vs Nottinghamshire prediction

They are the two form sides in the competition so it is easy to see why they have made it to the final. While Surrey start as marginal favourites, Nottinghamshire can’t be written off with many world-class match-winners throughout their lineup. Surrey have of course the enigmatic Kumar Sangakkara and if he were to go big at the top of the order, you would have to make Surrey favourites batting first. That being said, when you compare the bowling attacks, the international experience of Stuart Broad, Harry Gurney, and Samit Patel should make the difference in a high-scoring match.
