My MI vs KKR betting prediction article looks at the recent form of both teams, analyses the awful campaign that the MI have so far endured, and weighs up KKR’s chances of making the playoffs.
The less said about the Mumbai Indians’ campaign, the better. The five-time champions are the most successful side in the history of the IPL, but have won just twice in ten attempts this year. There are several mitigating factors – the absence of Jofra Archer throughout the campaign was always planned (the MI signed him in the Mega Auction despite understanding his injury situation), but they could really do with someone of his ability at the moment. The loss of form of Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah has also been hugely damaging – they are the MI’s star players, but haven’t been able to get going at all. Team management did not opt to retain Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, and Trent Boult – how they wish they could call upon the talents of all three!
The KKR have also had a very disappointing campaign! They must win all their remaining games to stand a chance of sneaking into the playoffs, but they will also need results to go their way. They do not enter my IPL betting 2022 calculations – a crushingly disappointing campaign for franchise fans who are still recovering from the heartbreak of their IPL 21 final defeat.
I have been looking at the live cricket satta rates ahead of the clash, and put together my best bets. Check out my full review below – the action gets underway from 7.30 pm (IST) on Monday 9th May at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai.
Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians Betting Odds
The MI vs KKR betting odds are slanted in favour of the MI – and I cannot agree with the oddsmakers. I just don’t think the Mumbai Indians have the form to challenge.
I am backing the Knight Riders to come out on top – they represent great value at the price. For bigger odds and other free cricket betting tips, read my full preview below.
