Royal Challengers Bangalore v Kolkata Knight Riders – Betting Tips and Prediction
Our team have these free cricket betting tips and predictions for you, for this match. They are based on our years of experience, the form of the players and the best odds.
Make Moeen Your Top Batsman for RCB
Bangalore’s batting has obviously been lacking, so it’s good that they’ve found room for Moeen Ali in the XI.
The England all-rounder can bring a lot of impetus. He’s a good pick at 9.0 with 22Bet to be the Challengers’ top batsman.
Yes, you could pick AB de Villiers and Virat Kohli in the same market, but Ali is going to offer better value if it comes off.
Bet on a Maiden to Happen
The Sharjah pitch seems to be slowing. Although the boundaries at the stadium are smaller than at the other IPL 2020 grounds, some batsmen have struggled to get the ball off the square most recently.
Bangalore have gone for relatively long patches without hitting a boundary in some matches this tournament. You could do well to bet on a maiden being bowled. There have been six maidens in the 2020 IPL.
1xBet have total overs with no runs scored over 0.5 priced at 3.4 and it looks a solid pick.
Pick Udana for Player of the Match
Bangalore have been quite adamant in picking Sri Lankan all-rounder Isuru Udana ahead of South African pace ace Dale Steyn.
Udana is a good option with the new ball and can fire down the order with the bat. As an all-rounder, he’s well-positioned in 1xBet’s player of the match markets.
Rather than opt for a batsman or a bowler, go for Udana, who can do both, at 21.0 to be the player of the match. It’s one of the longer shots, but worth taking.
