DC vs KKR Betting Tips & Predictions

Categories: Cricket, Predictions

We are careering head first into the business end of the season, and both the Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders must win here to move closer to the playoff positions.

In the previous IPL 22 clash between these two, the Capitals came out on top thanks to a searing spell from Kuldeep Yadav, who took 4/35 from four overs to help his team defend 215 (David Warner 61 from 45 balls and Privthi Shaw 51 from 29 balls).

The Knight Riders have lost their last four matches – it feels like it’s boom or bust for Shreyas Iyer and his men.

I have been looking at the live cricket satta rates to produce to best value DC vs KKR betting predictions – you can find all my IPL betting tips below!

The action gets underway from 7.30 pm (IST) on Thursday 28th April at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

DC vs KKR Betting Odds

The current DC vs KKR betting odds are in favour of the former – you can get 1.86 on the Capitals to win.

Although it’s a fair mark, I am more tempted by the longer price attached to the KKR. I think they can rise to the importance of the occasion and bag the win to reignite their playoff hopes. Check out my full cricket predictions, including my Hot Bet, below!

DC vs KKR Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back KKR to win @ 1.95 with Pure Win

Last season’s table toppers vs last season’s runners-up face each other for the second time of the campaign.

On the face of it, backing the KKR to win looks like a daft call! On a four-game losing streak, form and luck is deserting them at the worst point in the campaign. I love the underdog, though, and there is still a potent bite to the KKR’s bark – thanks to some key players.

The likes of Andre Russell, Shreyas Iyer, and Dinesh Khartik have the requisite form, experience, and guile to guide their team to the playoffs – but it has to start with a win here.

The Delhi Capitals are under marginally less pressure to get the win, since they have played a game fewer, though defeat would also prove disastrous.

Today’s DC vs KKR Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Back Andre Russell to be KKR’s man of the match @ 7.0 with 10CRIC

After top scoring with 48 from 25 balls and taking four wickets for five runs from a devastating one-over spell in the KKR’s close defeat to the Gujarat Titans last time out, I was miffed as to how Russell wasn’t awarded the man of the match accolade. Instead, it went to Adil Rashid (2/22 from four overs).

However, despite the questionable decision of match officials, his performance underlined why Russell is always a good value bet for the man of the match market.

He is an explosive batsman that can turn a game on its head in an over, and with the ball in hand he can prove just as devastating.

I will be backing him to be the match’s MVP with 10CRIC – they tend to offer the best prices on individual player markets, although they will also have a broad range of DC vs KKR betting opportunities, both pre-match and in-play! Read our full 10CRIC review here.

Delhi Recent Form

After a fast start, the Delhi Capitals have been underwhelming. They seem incapable of putting any sort of winning run on the table – failing to stitch back-to-back wins together all season.

Their display of disgraceful sportsmanship in the defeat to the Rajasthan Royals is perhaps evidence that tension is running too high for the Capitals to perform. Needing 36 from the final over, Rovman Powell smashed three consecutive sixes to set up a sensational second half of the over. The third six was desperately close to a No Ball, but the umpires believed the call was too marginal. Instead of continuing with the game, the Capitals’ bench went ballistic, remonstrating with officials repeatedly and even sending an assistant coach onto the field to voice his displeasure.

Their actions have been condemned by the majority of the cricketing world – and now a cloud of controversy hangs over the heads of DC coming into this tie, one they could do without! Still, the oddsmakers clearly aren’t concerned – they are heavy favourites in the DC vs KKR betting odds.

Team News

There are no new injury updates from the previous match – though the DC are still recovering from a Covid scare in the camp which put paid to Mitchell Marsh’s playing time for the last week. The Aussie all-rounder is expected to be fit to play against the KKR in a timely boost!

Coach Ricky Ponting will be watching the game from home -he is in isolation after a close contact tested positive.

Player to Watch: David Warner

The Aussie pocket dynamo – as Capitals’ fans like to call him – loves batting against the KKR. He has scored 996 runs against them – the fourth-highest of any player against any opponent in IPL history. If he were to score 54 runs here, he would go to the top of that list.

His scores this campaign so far read 4(12 balls), 61 (45 balls), 66 (38 balls), 60* (30 balls), and 28 (14 balls) – I think he could be a good bet to bag a half-century in the form he is in.

You can back him to score 50+ runs at 3.40 with Betway.

DC’s Likely XI

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

KKR Recent Form

Terrible! Four straight defeats on the bounce for the Kolkata Knight Riders means last year’s runners-up find themselves scrapping for their lives in the race for IPL glory.

However, the bare form statistics don’t tell the whole story! Against the Royals, for example, they should have won from the position Shreyas Iyer had got his team into. Only a hat-trick from Yuzvendra Chahal prevented them from getting two crucial points.

Their latest defeat to the Titans would have been just as hard to take for franchise fans – Russell looked as though he had done enough to get his side over the line before a ludicrous catch from Lockie Ferguson stopped the Jamaican’s heroics in its tracks.

One huge positive to take from defeat was their death bowling – they bowled 43 dot balls, claimed seven wickets, and conceded only 29 runs in the final five overs. They will need to replicate more of that sort of form against the likes of Rishabh Pant.

They last lifted the trophy back in 2014, and are long odds to do so again this year. If you fancy getting behind a miraculous title win, you can back them at 16.0 with Betway!

Team News

Aaron Finch, Pat Cummins and Sheldon Jackson were all dropped for the game against the Titans – skipper Iyer suggesting a few niggles meant the switch-up in the line-up. Expect at least one of those players to come back in.

The reticence to bowl the effective Andre Russell for more than one or two overs suggest an underlying ailment to their star all-rounder – but he is too valuable to their batting prospects to risk dropping.

Player to Watch: Shreyas Iyer

Are we looking at a future captain of India? There are many sage voices in the game that believe this young man has what it takes to be the next Indian batting superstart.

He has flickered, and occasionally sparked, in this season’s campaign. His remarkable 85 from 51 balls almost led his team to a phenomenal successful run chase over the Rajasthan Royals back on 18th April in what was his best individual innings of the campaign.

This is a combative, single-minded competitor that plays well when his back is up against the wall. I like the look of Iyer to top score for the Knight Riders. You can back him at 3.20 with Betway!

KKR’s Likely XI

Aaron Finch, Ajinkya Rahane, Shreyas Iyer (c), Nitish Rana, Andre Russell, Sunil Narine, Rakish Salam, Pat Cummins, Umesh Yadav, Shivam Mavi, Varun Chakravarthy.

Venue & conditions

The last five games at the Wankhede Stadium have produced a fascinating trend – the team batting first have all won, with an average winning margin of 16.2 runs.

The captain that wins the toss will have an interesting call to make – in the KKR vs GT match at the weekend, Hardik Pandya became the first skipper in 34 matches to bat first after winning the toss.

Will we see one of Iyer or Pant following in his footsteps at such a bat-first friendly venue?

DC vs KKR Head-to-Head

The DC vs KKR head to head record has narrowed, following the latter’s defeat to the Capitals earlier in the campaign.

Indeed, the KKR’s general form against DC is pretty poor – winning on three of the last nine games between the two.

DC vs KKR Toss Prediction

Can Shreyas Iyer make two correct calls in a row? I am backing him to get it right – but will he be brave enough to bat first?

Whoever wins, there is yet to be a bigger call to make in the context of both seasons. For what it’s worth, I’m backing the Rishabh Pant to call correctly.
