Kolkata Knight Riders v Delhi Capitals – Betting Tips and Prediction
This should go the way of Delhi but much will come down to how they react to their latest defeat.
Kolkata will provide a stern test, especially under the new captaincy of Eoin Morgan. However, Delhi’s recent record against KKR proves they have it in their locker to come out on top once more.
As ever, there is value to be found in all the other markets that are on offer for this fixture.
Back Rabada to be Delhi’s Top Bowler
Kagiso Rabada has been superb since the start of IPL 2020.
He took another two wickets in the defeat to KXIP in the previous outing and can be the man to shine for DC in this one.
His main danger will likely come from Anrich Nortje but he didn’t play in the last fixture and Rabada will start as long as he’s fit.
His price of 2.5 with 22Bet seems fair and looks a good bet considering he seems so far ahead of the other bowlers for the Capitals. It could be worth waiting until the teams are named and also considering an IPL live bet on Nortje if he is included.
Morgan the Value Pick for KKR
Eoin Morgan has been getting starts for Kolkata without going on to make a big score. He has 39 and 34 in his last two fixtures, which hints that he may be ready to kick on.
He would certainly be the value selection in the top Kolkata batsman market. His price of 5.0 with 22Bet looks far too big.
A plus point for this bet would also be the fact he shifted up the order in the last game ahead of previous skipper Dinesh Karthik.
Dhawan and Rabada Double
Given the dominance of Dhawan and Rabada for DC, it could be worth backing them both to shine together again.
22Bet are offering 7.00 for the double for Dhawan being DC’s top batsman and Rabada being their top bowler.
Both are standout performers in their respective fields and it would be no surprise to see them leading the way again.
It’s a longshot bet but one that looks appealing if recent form is anything to go by.
