Punjab Kings vs Mumbai Indians Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back MI to win @ 1.53 with Betway
Mumbai Indians are bound to start this match as the heavy favourites, especially given the abysmal form of Punjab Kings at the moment.
It is for this reason that all leading sports betting sites are offering huge odds on PBKS to win.
But all of that aside, MI’s probability of winning this match is certainly fairly high. Even though they aren’t clicking well in the batting department, they have got bowling going on for them which is a good sign.
Add to the equation their massive pedigree in the league and phenomenal history, the choice becomes all the more clear.
Meanwhile, Punjab Kings are struggling in batting and bowling. Rahul and Agarwal have been single-handedly putting up runs on the board but when it comes to defending them, their bowlers are going for a toss.
No matter how you put it, MI come out on the top, at least on paper. Punjab would have to pull a rabbit out of the hat (or hope for MI to bungle) to win this match.
Punjab Total Fours: Over 12.5
Recommended Bet: PBKS Total Fours: Over 12.5 @ 2.00 with Betway
When Punjab’s batsmen are in form, they have no difficulties in finding the boundaries. It is only when they are out of form that they scramble for 4s and 6s.
For them to hit over 12.5 fours is not an impossible or even a difficult feat – it is just their players who need to be confident. Case in point, in their high-scoring games against Rajasthan and Delhi, the Punjab boys hit well over 15 4s.
In this upcoming game, it is reasonable to expect some changes in their batting order; even if not, they will be eager to prove themselves after three consecutive losses.
Today’s PBKS vs MI Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Suryakumar Yadav to be MI Top Batsman @ 4.0 with 10CRIC
Yadav is currently the second-highest run getting for MI in the IPL 2021 at 121 runs in 4 matches. He has proven to be a reliable player on the team and has contributed with the bat consistently.
The Indian batsman usually comes 1 down and has plenty of time to get some runs on the board. He has been in fine form as well.
Lastly, between him, Sharma, and de Kock, Yadav is available at far more attractive odds.
