Kolkata Knight Riders v Sunrisers Hyderabad – Betting Tips and Predictions
Here are more cricket betting tips for your consideration. They are as accurate as possible and based on the recent form of the players.
Opt for Iyer as Top KKR Batsman
Venkatesh Iyer has been one of the findsof the IPL in the UAE. His role at the top of the order has put KKR in many strong positions.
Two of his last four innings have produced half-centuries and he has a couple of other good knocks to show for his fine form, too.
Bet on Iyer to be the top Kolkat Knight Riders batsman at 4.5 with bet365. This is an excellent price for a player doing so well. Other bookies have him at shorter odds in the same market.
Pick Narine and Khan in an Accumulator
1xBet continue to put out the best accumulator outcomes for the IPL 2021 restart. They are really good at these and the variety is big.
Bet on Sunil Narine and Rashid Khan to take two wickets each at 5.5 with 1xBet. This bet will keep you involved through both innings.
Narine is arguably KKR’s best spinner. Hyderabad have one of the best leg-spinners in the world in Khan. This all makes for interesting IPL online betting.
Have Holder as Top SRH Bowler
Two of Jason Holder’s last three matches in the IPL have brought three wickets in each. Batsmen are struggling with his height and extra pace.
Holder might only need two or three wickets to be the Sunrisers’ top bowler in this match. Bet on the odds of this happening at 4.5 with 22Bet.
They have many other attractive markets and odds available, too. Be sure to check Holder’s player of the match odds. He offers good value with the bat as well.
