Rajasthan Royals v Punjab Kings – Betting Tips and Prediction
We have more IPL cricket betting tips for you. These match predictions include some generous odds and are based on the form of the players.
Pick Punjab for the Highest Opening Partnership
At the start of the IPL 2020, the Delhi Capitals looked to have the best opening partnership in Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan. But then Punjab took over in a big way.
Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul started to dominate the opposition opening bowlers. They did this so well that Chris Gayle was having to bat at number three.
Agarwal and Rahul will almost certainly continue this combination this season. Punjab are a solid pick at 1.85 with 1xBet to have the highest opening partnership in this match.
Closer to the tournament, 1xBet will also probably have their popular accumulator outcomes available for the 2021 IPL. Agarwal, Rahul and Gayle should feature in those, too.
Bet on a Batsman to Ton Up
The market that centres around any batsman to score a century will be in almost all odds for the 2021 Indian Premier League.
The best betting sites in India have this as a standard, while varying their others to set themselves apart.
For now, 22Bet’s price of 6.8 for any Rajasthan or Punjab batsman to reach three figures is the strongest option.
With Gayle, Rahul, Agarwal and so many other batsmen capable of clouting centuries on display, we really like the look of this pick.
Richardson to Hit the Ground Running
Jhye Richarson was a big-money auction buy for Punjab and looks perfectly prepared for his IPL debut.
The money paid out also means he is a likely starter. He perhaps has less questions over his selection compared to Chris Jordon, Rilee Meredith and Moises Henriques as the Kings look to juggle their overseas options.
Richardson was the leading wicket-taker in the BBL and his extra pace proved a big weapon.
With Mohammed Shami returning from injury, backing Richardson to be Punjab’s top bowler looks good at 4.33 with bet365.
