Chennai Super Kings v Mumbai Indians – Betting Tips and Predictions
The IPL 2021has already seen three batsmen score centuries. A move to the United Arab Emirates, where conditions could be even better for batting, could see this tally rise quickly.
The Dubai deck should be fresh and full of runs. Whichever team chooses to bat first might get off to an absolute flyer while the opposition bowlers try to find their feet.
It’s here where 22Bet’s price of 6.05 for anyone to score a ton in the match looks really good. This could bring big, early value.
Pick Mumbai for the Top Opening Partnership
Mumbai’s Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock have been an outstanding opening partnership for an extended period. Faf du Plessis and Ruturaj Gaikwad are a newish opening combo for Chennai.
All four will likely be at the top of the order again in this match. It’s Sharma and de Kock that are looking the best placed to succeed.
Picking Mumbai to have the highest opening partnership at 2.0 with 1xBet is the way to go. You could double your stake.
Choose Chennai to Have the Top Bowler
With Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Deepak Chahar poised to return to the bowling department, Chennai’s bowling attack could outdo Mumbai’s here.
You’d be betting against the odds, as Mumbai’s rates to have the top bowler are shorter with Betmaster, but CSK in the same market is our top tip torestart the IPL.
With the veteran MS Dhoni around to marshal the bowling changes and Jadeja and others to share their knowledge and experience of conditions in the UAE, CSK to have the top bowler at 1.87 with Betmaster is shaping up nicely.
