Rajasthan Royals v Sunrisers Hyderabad – Betting Tips and Prediction
This could be a very close contest with fine margins deciding who comes out on top.
It is hard to pick an outright winner, though the quick-starting Bairstow and the bowling of Rashid Khan could swing it just in their favour.
Looking at other markets is a better way of finding some value selections for this clash.
Bairstow for Top Hyderabad Batsman
Jonny Bairstow has enjoyed being back at the top of the Hyderabad order alongside skipper David Warner but will now have to forge on without him.
He failed to fire in the previous outing but has been in excellent form prior to that, including an unbeaten 63 against Punjab Kings.
The England star starts on the front foot and could be the man to take the game quickly away from Rajasthan.
His price of 3.4 with bet365 looks like an appealing bet.
Mujeeb a Value Selection
Young Afghan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman hasn’t featured in the last few games but could come back into the team for this clash.
Rashid Khan had joy at this venue last time and that could convince SRH to hand another opportunity to his 20-year-old countryman.
The last time he played, the right-armer took two wickets against Mumbai. That followed his good form in the PSL.
His price of 4.0 with LeoVegas looks a value selection.
Back A Super Over
This is obviously a longshot bet but backing for there to be a super over isn’t the worst idea against two closely matched teams.
It is an interest proposition considering both teams made exactly the same score at this venue when last in action. Hyderabad made 171 against Chennai and Rajasthan made 171 against Mumbai.
With this looking like it could go to the wire, a bet on a super over could pay big.
It is priced at 17.0 with bet365 for that to happen.
