Punjab Kings v Chennai Super Kings – Betting Tips and Prediction
Here are our IPL cricket betting tips for this contest. These match predictions are based on all the latest odds.
Back Punjab for the Outright Win
There was a lot to like about Punjab’s victory over Rajasthan in their first fixture.
They have plenty of batting options and stormed well beyond 200 without picking Dawid Malan.
It could have been much more comfortable if their Aussie pacers, Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith, hadn’t taken so long to settle.
That duo will be better for the experience and Punjab’s price of 1.9 with 22Bet looks worth taking.
Chennai endured a tough IPL 2020 and have started with defeat this time.
Gayle to be Top Punjab Batsman
Chris Gayle took a while to get going against Rajasthan but was soon smashing the ball to the boundary in customary style.
He enjoys batting at Wankhede and could get hold of the Chennai spinners here.
His price of 4.0 to be top batsman looks a value bet.
KL Rahul leads this market but siding with the West Indian is a much more appealing price.
Punjab to Hit the Most Sixes
While Chris Gayle will love the shorter boundaries and flat surface in Mumbai, so will a few other Punjab batsmen.
Deepak Hooda hit six sixes in the first game here and captain Rahul bagged five of his own.
Nicholas Pooran adds even more firepower to the Punjab line-up.
They are priced at 2.05 with bet365 to hit the most maximums.
Jadeja and Curran can certainly find the stands for CSK but preference is still for Punjab.
