Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals – Betting Tips and Prediction
Rajasthan have the firepower to cause Mumbai problems here but it is hard to look past the defending champions.
Mumbai’s bowling attack looks full of confidence and siding with them to take the win looks the sensible bet.
Take a look at our other best tips for this contest.
Back Steve Smith for Top Royals Batsman
Australian Steve Smith has enjoyed a good start to the IPL and looks a solid bet in the top Rajasthan batsman market.
He, like all the RR batsmen, have struggled away from Sharjah, but his ability to adapt and harvest runs in a bigger outfield could come to the fore now.
There might not be too many big shots from him but the ball skidding on should give him chance to measure an innings if he can find better form.
His price of 4.0 with bet365 looks an interesting betting prospect.
More Wickets for Pattinson
James Pattinson has taken four wickets in the last two matches and looks a great bet to continue that form here.
It is worth noting his impressive performance with the ball against KXIP at this ground. The conditions suited him then and he looks a value bet to shine again.
He can be backed at 5.0 with 22Bet to be Mumbai’s top bowler in this contest.
Archer to get Over 32.5 Player Performance Points
Jofra Archer has looked dangerous with the ball in spells this IPL but has already had to bat a few times for the Royals.
A top-order that has failed to fire since moving away from Sharjah and a weak middle-order has seen the England pace ace come in with good effect with the bat too.
If that persists then he looks a really good bet to get over 32.5 player performance points. He can be backed at 1.83 with bet365 to achieve that.
Remember, he’ll get 20 points for every wicket he takes, one for every run and 10 for every catch in the field. He might not even need to bat should he take just two wickets.
