Chennai Super Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore – Betting Tips and Prediction
This could well come down to if RCB are able to trouble CSK with the ball. As ever, they have a strong batting line-up but a fragile bowling attack was highlighted once more in their last defeat to Delhi.
Washington Sundar was a bright spark again and given how well Bangalore have done so far, RCB would be the selection in the outright market.
However, given how close this one could be, looking at other markets is a better way to find value.
Best Opening Partnership for CSK
Despite Chennai’s troubles in IPL 2020 their opening pair of Faf du Plessis and Shane Watson have looked in fine order.
The duo have used all their experience to find runs and give their team a solid foundation to work from.
While RCB also have a strong batting line-up, their openers haven’t found the same consistency.
Backing CSK to have the highest opening partnership looks a solid bet. That can be backed at 1.91 with bet365.
Back Kohli to Star for RCB
Skipper Virat Kohli really looks to be seeing it well at the moment. In his last two innings he has chalked up 72 against Rajasthan before another 43 against Delhi.
He is priced at 3.0 with 10CRIC to be his team’s top run-scorer in this one.
Thakur to Enjoy Dubai Again
Shardul Thakur has looked dangerous lately and can be among the wickets again should he be selected.
He has taken two wickets in both of his last two outings, including in his last showing in Dubai against KXIP.
The vast array of bowling options available for CSK do make this a longshot bet but he looks decent value at 5.00 with 22Bet to be his team’s top wicket-taker.
