Punjab vs Chennai Winner Prediction
Recommended bet: Back Punjab to win @ 1.86 with 10CRIC
Our betting tips and predictions for Punjab Kings vs Chennai Super Kings have the former backed as winners solely owing to their impeccably superior squad.
On a side note, they have been the underdogs historically and this looks like a season where they can change that reputation.
Punjab may have faced some problems in their bowling department but these are still early days. Richardson and Meredith should get acclimatized to the league soon and even then, the sheer number of options available are simply too good.
As for their batting, KL Rahul is expected to continue his solid start here with Gayle likely to complement his efforts with the bat.
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings will look to their captain Dhoni for some inspiration as they face this formidable side. Time and again, Dhoni’s captaincy skills have guided Chennai through to some remarkable wins and now, it is up to him to show the way ahead.
They also have some decent players available at their disposal; it is just a matter of picking the right combination.
It is perhaps for this reason that despite the contrasts in the two teams, many betting sites are giving even odds on both.
PBKS Total Sixes Over 7.5 – 20 Overs
Recommended Bet: PBKS to hit over 7.5 sizes @ 1.9 with Betway
In the four innings played so far in the Wankhede Stadium from two matches, three of them have seen over 7.5 sixes. Punjab’s batsmen hit 13 sixes in their first match; Chennai’s hit 10.
Given that this is a batting pitch, we can expect a very similar outcome in this upcoming game too.
Today’s PBKS vs CSK Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Riley Meredith to be PBKS Top Bowler @ 5.0 with 10CRIC
Meredith went for 1-49 in his four-over spell the other day against Rajasthan Royals. But we are talking about a player who is an exceptionally good seamer and is experienced in this format of the game, thanks to his time in the Big Bash League.
He is likely to retain his position in the playing XI for this game too and will most definitely bowl his complete spell. Available at decent odds, Meredith certainly makes for an attractive bet.
