Chennai Super Kings v Royal Challengers Bangalore – Betting Tips and Prediction
This is a really interesting clash between two of the tournament’s most in-form sides.
CSK are excelling most expectations this year but preference for the outright win would go to RCB.
However, their price is short enough, so looking at other markets is the way to go for this fixture.
Back Padikkal to Outscore Kohli
Devdutt Padikkal was RCB’s top run-scorer in the previous tournament and has quickly got up to speed this time around after missing the first few matches.
He smashed an excellent ton in the last game and will be full of confidence given his superb showings in the Vijay Hazare Trophy this year.
Kohli returned to form himself in the last game but had been struggling for runs prior to that.
Backing Padikkal to outscore his skipper in this match looks a good bet at 2.2 with 22Bet.
Siraj is a Value Selection
Mohammed Siraj has been in eye-catching form so far this IPL.
The RCB pacer is not only finding wickets but also producing a large number of dot balls as well.
He took three wickets in the previous game, which was also Bangalore’s first in Mumbai this year.
Backing him to shine at this venue again looks a value pick at 4.0 with bet365.
Moeen Ready for a Big Score
Moeen Ali will be facing the team that let him go after IPL 2020.
The England all-rounder will be keen to prove Kohli and Co wrong and also happens to be in decent nick at present.
He is clearly enjoying playing higher in the CSK order and has made some good starts without kicking on.
However, he could be ready to do that now at a decent price. He will be well-placed should Faf du Plessis or Ruturaj Gaikwad fall in the powerplay.
Moeen is available at 4.5 with bet365 to be CSK’s top batsman.
