Chennai Super Kings v Delhi Capitals – Betting Tips and Prediction
We’ve got some early IPL betting tips for you. These are based on all the latest odds and can help guide you to the best value bets as the IPL action gets underway.
Back Delhi for a Winnings Start
Delhi enjoyed an impressive IPL season in 2020 and have what it takes to be a force once again.
Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje were brilliant with the ball in hand last term and Delhi have also bolstered their batting options too.
Sikhar Dhawan can shine at the top of the order before Rishab Pant, Sam Billings and skipper Shreyas Iyer do damage further down.
The Capitals could have too much firepower for Chennai in this one and their price of 1.73 with bet365 looks a good bet.
Delhi to Have Highest Opening Partnership
If Delhi are to win this opening fixture then they are also a good bet to have the highest opening partnership.
Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw could again form a formidable partnership. There is also the option that the Capitals could open with Marcus Stoinis in a position that seems to suit him.
Chennai, meanwhile, are now facing life without the reliable Shane Watson following his retirement.
They chopped and changed their openers last season and that doesn’t bode well this time around.
Delhi can be backed at 1.83 with 22Bet to enjoy a better first wicket stand.
Curran to Star for Chennai
Backing Sam Curran to be Chennai’s top batsman looks a decent longshot bet for this contest.
Chennai appear a little disjointed heading into this IPL season and there are plenty of questions to be answered from their top-order batsman.
Should their openers crumble under a strong Dehli bowling attack then the England man will be well-placed to take advantage.
However, there is also the chance Curran could yet open for CSK as he did on occasion last year.
Wherever he plays in this game, he looks in good nick after his barnstorming 95 not out in the final ODI against India.
His price of 7.5 with bet365 to be his team’s top run-scorer looks far too big.
