Rajasthan vs Kolkata Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back KKR to win @ 1.80 with Casumo
These are two struggling sides but there seems to be a big difference here.
KKR have some excellent players who haven’t yet gelled as a team. The Royals look like a very ordinary side where only one or two players stand out and it’s not easy to see where their strengths lie.
Sooner or later a KKR batting line-up including Russell, Morgan, Karthik, and Rana will click and they’ll either set or chase a monster total.
So the potential is there for Kolkata and adding the head-to-head record to the equation, especially the recent one, KKR are a confident choice.
KKR to Hit Most Sixes
Recommended Bet: KKR to hot the most sixes @ 2.05 with 10CRIC
KKR hit 14 sixes against CSK alone. With those powerful batsmen we’ve mentioned often preferring to take risks and go for big sixes than accumulating runs, you’re going to get plenty of sixes when Kolkata are in action.
As for Rajasthan, they’ve lost one of their big six-hitters in Ben Stokes whereas the other two, Jos Buttler and David Miller, look badly out of touch. So it’s only really Samson who has been clearing the boundary.
Go with KKR in a market where they should be strong favourites.
Today’s RR v KKR Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Andre Russell to be man-of-the-match @ 8.5 with 10CRIC
Andre Russell has an incredible ability to take wickets out of nowhere and last time out reminded us of what he can do with the bat.
KKR may consider batting him a bit higher here and give him more balls to face. He’s just one of those players who’s always in the game because he’s a proper all-rounder who can do the lot.
He’s taken seven wickets in four games so far and though that 54 was his only proper score so far, you have a feeling he may just kick on after that.
Given we fancy KKR to win and you can see why we think Russell can be very much the main man.
