With the regular season all over bar the shouting all eyes have shifted to the Caribbean Premier League playoff odds as the final four ready themselves for that last push to victory. Online betting sites in St. Kitts & Nevis, like Bovada, are offering just 6/5 on the Guyana Amazon Warriors who have yet to be beaten this series. However, in the knockout stages the pressure will be on and there’s just a chance they’ll be pipped at the post by one of the three other finalists.
It would seem such an easy bet on cricket. The Guyana Amazon Warriors have ridden roughshod over the rest of the CPL winning all eight of their matches so far and cementing their place in the final four well ahead of the other teams. Their record so far means they go into the knockout stages far more heavily favored by the bookies, with their price among the Caribbean Premier League playoff odds hovering around the 6/5 mark on sites like Bovada, than their three rivals.
- Patriots – 13/2
- Tridents – 9/2
- Knight Riders – 11/5
- Amazon Warriors – 6/5
Of course, those who enjoy placing a bet on sports in St. Kitts & Nevis will know only too well that whilst the regular season allowed for a mistake or two, there will be no room for error now. Fortunately, for the Warriors, they really haven’t made any yet, which explains their Caribbean Premier League playoff odds, all things being equal they should easily march through their opposition in the first qualifier and then destroy the other team to reach the final in Tarouba.
Unbeaten Warriors Close In On Victory
It being a knockout competition from here on in, however, there’s just a chance things might go astray for the table topping Warriors.
Certainly, the Trinbago Knight Riders will be hoping so. With their Caribbean Premier League playoff odds loitering at around 11/5 they look to be the side the bookies like Bovada think will pick up the trophy if the Warriors go to pieces, not that there’s really much hope of that, and the Knight Riders odds are, if anything, a tad generous.

Interestingly the Barbados Tridents, who’ll struggle to come out of the regular season with a positive win-loss ratio, get Caribbean Premier League playoff odds of 9/2. This might not look, at first glance like something to rush off and take advantage of St. Kitts & Nevis gambling laws to back, however they’ve been quietly getting more competent and cohesive as a team and could well be worth a speculative punt to put in some special performances in the knockout stages to come.
The St Kitts & Nevis Patriots, meanwhile, have come out of the regular season with five wins and five losses to their name, and go into the final four attracting the longest of the Caribbean Premier League playoff odds available at 13/2 on sites like Bovada. This is perhaps a little parsimonious but inherent within that is a rather nice opportunity, sure they’ll have to be dashed lucky in their games to come, but this is cricket and a little bet on the Patriots might not be all that bad an idea.
- Q1 – 1st Placed Team vs 2nd Placed Team
- Eliminator – 3rd Placed Team vs 4th Placed Team
- Q2 – Loser Q1 vs Winner Eliminator
- Final – Winner Q1 vs Winner Q2
The knockout stages start in the Providence Stadium, Guyana, which will be packed to capacity (and then some) given just how well their Warriors have performed so far. The final two matches are to be held at the Brian Lara Cricket Academy in Trinidad, traditional home of West Indies cricket, and all four games present your last opportunity to check out the Caribbean Premier League playoff odds at Bovada, one of the best online sportsbook sites in St. Kitts & Nevis today.
