We are fast approaching crunch time – as yet another seismic IPL clash comes into view, we have put together some CSK vs DC betting tips!

The game is all but up for the defending champions – the Chennai Super Kings will need to win their four remaining games by huge margins to overturn a poor net run rate and for other results to go their way to get them in a position that could see them miraculously make the playoffs. When I was putting together my IPL betting predictions before a ball was bowled, I did not expect that CSK wouldn’t even come close to making the playoffs. It’s been a disastrous campaign

It’s a different story entirely for the Delhi Capitals – a convincing victory over the Sunrisers Hyderabad last time out means they are well-placed to stage a late run for the top four positions. The Capitals will no doubt be smarting after collapsing in the finals last year, and will be bidding to put things right.

The live cricket satta rates are making this a close call – but I have a good idea of who I’m backing to come out on top. To find out more, check my full match preview below. The game gets underway at 7.30 (IST) on Sunday 8th May from the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai.

The re-appointing of MS Dhoni as captain had an instant impact, but there is only so much the great man can inspire his side. They continue to look listless when the game isn’t going their way.

That is why my premium cricket betting tips centre around a win for the Delhi Capitals – I think the raw form of Rishabh Pant’s team is hard to be reckoned with. For more CSK vs DC betting tips, read below.

CSK vs DC Betting Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back the Delhi Capitals to win @ 1.83 with Pure Win

The most successful team in the history of the IPL is set to miss out on the playoffs and relinquish their IPL crown in the process. We knew it would be a more competitive league this year, but few would have had the CSK not making the playoffs, given the players on their roster.

The likes of Ruturaj Gaikwad (last year’s Orange Cap winner), Moeen Ali, and Ravindra Jadeja, have struggled for consistency throughout, while the confusion surrounding the captaincy between Jadeja and Dhoni seems to underline the lack of cohesion within their squad.

There have been some magical moments – Dhoni’s miraculous unbeaten 29 to win the tie against the Mumbai Indians earlier in the campaign will go down in folklore. Fans are feeding off scraps though – it’s been an IPL to sweep under the rug!

Meanwhile, the Delhi Capitals come into this tie off the back of a confidence-boosting win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Their future is in their hands – a win here will get them to 12 points, one win away from the magical 14-point mark, which was enough to gain promotion last year. They have the healthiest net run rate of any team in the IPL at the time of writing, and will fancy their chances of making it to two playoffs in two seasons.

They have the momentum and the firepower, so I’m going to be backing the Capitals as my IPL prediction with Pure Win – they are my go-to betting site for getting value on match winner markets. Read our Pure Win review to find out more.

Today’s CSK vs DC Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Back David Warner to score 50+ runs @ 3.0 with 10CRIC

Imagine if David Warner had been available for the IPL from the very beginning? He could be rivalling Jos Buttler for a run at the Orange Cap!

The Australian dynamo is in staggering form. He is fresh from smashing 92 runs in just 58 balls in a man of the match display against the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

He is currently averaging 59.33 – the third highest in the IPL – and rollocks along at a strike rate of 156.82, which is the highest of any batsman with more than 300 runs.

I’m backing him to make a similar impact against the Super Kings – you can get 3.0 on Warner to score 50+ runs with 10CRIC. I tend to place my player prop bets with 10CRIC because of how generous they are with the odds surrounding this type of market.

Chennai Super Kings Recent Form

It would take a long time to type down the mathematical equation that would ensure the Chennai Super Kings make the IPL playoffs, so I’m going to keep it simple.

MS Dhoni’s men need to win every single one of their remaining games, and hope other results go their way to swing the net run rate in their favour. In short – it’s unlikely in the extreme the Super Kings will have a chance to defend their crown in the playoffs..

However, the Super Kings are led by a man who prides himself on extreme unlikelihoods. MS Dhoni continues to wield his bat like the wand of an overpowered magician on a video game – he has overseen countless comebacks from hopeless positions before. If he were to manage one here, it would be the greatest swansong to a mercurial career that is raging into the night.

Where there is still hope, you can expect Dhoni and his team to come out swinging.

Team News

Dwayne Bravo was once again absent for the defeat to the Royal Challengers Bangalore – could he make a comeback in what is last chance saloon territory?

Elsewhere, there are no fresh injury concerns for the Chennai Super Kings, though the loss of Deepak Chahar at the beginning of the season remains their biggest personnel loss.

Player to Watch: Devon Conway

After bursting onto the international scene with New Zealand in June 2021 – the double hundred against England on debut sticks in the mind – Conway has consolidated his position as one of the world’s most talented upper-order batters.

His stats for the Kiwis are astonishing – he averages 63.91 in tests, 75 in ODIs, and 50.16 in Twenty20 internationals – it was only a matter of time before an IPL franchise came calling.

The CSK made their move in the Mega Auction, and although he has only played three matches so far this year (his wedding got in the way), Conway is showing why he is such a valuable asset.

He has hit 144 runs so far at an average of 72 per innings at a strike rate of 144 – his latest knock a craftily-made 56 from just 37 balls.

I will have a bet on him to top score for the Chennai Super Kings at 4.0 with 10CRIC.

Chennai Super Kings Likely XI

Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devon Conway, Robin Uthappa, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu, Shivram Dube, Ravindra Jadeja, MS Dhoni (c, wk), Dwayne Bravo, Rajvardhan Hangargekar, Tushar Deshpande.

Delhi Capitals Recent Form

Are we going to see the Delhi Capitals of last year make a late run up the table? The IPL 21 table toppers have not had things their own way at all this year, which has exposed some unsportsmanlike conduct. A contentious no ball incident against the Rajasthan Royals is one of the more memorable moments of the campaign.

However, they appear to be hitting a vein of form at just the right moment. In Warner and Rovman Powell, they have two of the most destructive batters in the competition, while in Kuldeep Yadav, they have the tournament’s second-highest wicket-taker (at the time of writing).

I think they will have too much for the Chennai Super Kings here.

Team News

There are no new injuries to concern team management – they have a clean slate from which to choose from.

Player to Watch: Rovman Powell

After a tepid start to the IPL 22, we are starting to see the Rovman Powell cricket fans know and love. The powerful West Indies international hammered a breathtaking 67 from just 35 balls in the win over the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

The knock, which included six 6s, means Powell has now hit 18 maximums in this tournament. He boasts a strike rate of 171.18 – the fourth-highest from players with 200+ runs in the competition.

He is always a good price to finish the top scorer for the Capitals. I backed him in the last match, but his innings was only surpassed by David Warner.

His position in the line-up means it’s difficult to bet with confidence, so I will have a small interest bet on him. You can back him at 9.0 with Betway.

Delhi Capitals’ Likely XI

David Warner, Privthi Shaw, Mitchell Marsh, Rishabh Pant, Rovman Powell, Lalit Yadav, Axar Patel, Shardul Thakur, Andre Nortje, Kuldeep Yadav, Mustafizur Rahman

Venue & conditions

Runs are proving hard to come by recently at the DY Patil stadium!

In five of the last six matches here, the team batting first has failed to get more than 158 – only one team managed to defend their score (the Gujarat Titans against the Kolkata Knight Riders on 23rd April)

Winning the toss and bowling first has been the trend throughout this iteration of the IPL – the skipper that calls correctly here is likely to take to the field.

CSK vs DC Head-to-Head

The Chennai Super Kings are the second-most successful side in the history of the IPL, so it’s unsurprising to see them boast a significant head to head advantage over the Delhi Capitals.

However, the Capitals have won four of their last five games against Super Kings. I’m backing them to make it five out of six with another win here.

CSK vs DC Toss Prediction

The Capitals have lost their last two tosses in a row, but I’m backing Rishabh Pant to get back in the game with a correct call here.
