Rajasthan vs Punjab Match Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back PK to win @ 1.9 with Betway
Once again, our reasoning for this RR vs PK betting tip is absolutely simple – Punjab Kings are one of the strongest teams in this year’s IPL.
It is the considerable difference in star factor and the quality of players between the two teams that make us back the Kings.
Granted that in the last few seasons, their performance has been below par but this season, there is something different around them.
They shelled big bucks in the auction and handpicked some of the best T20 players from all parts of the world. It is for the same reason why we have pegged them as one of the favourites to win the IPL 2021!
Moreover, the fact that Rajasthan Royals are also pegged at 1.90 to win this game means that the betting sites are looking at this as an evenly matched fixture.
However, between the two, we believe that Punjab Kings have a fairly better chance of winning against untested and to some extent, slightly under-experienced Rajasthan Royals.
Over 12.5 sixes in the match
Recommended Bet: Back Total Sixes in the Match Over 12.5 @ 1.83 with Betway
The opening match in the Wankhede Stadium between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings saw 15 sixes in total. There is no reason why we cannot expect something similar in this game too.
In fact, if you ask us, this over/under boundaries is one of the safest cricket betting markets to consider.
After all, Punjab Kings have got all the firepower in the world to hit that many sixes all by themselves – Chris Gayle, KL Rahul, Mayank Agarwal, and others.
Even in Rajasthan Royals, you have Buttler and Morris who can hit it beyond the boundary line. And lastly, this is the IPL and it is hard to imagine a match without many sixes.
Today’s RR vs PK Hot Bet
Recommended bet: Back Jhye Richardson to be Top PK Bowler @ 4.00 with 10CRIC
Between Richardson, Jordan, and Meredith, Richardson is likely to get the nod to start in the playing XI.
He is the most expensive player in the team at Rs. 14 crore and the management will look to get the best of their investment, right from the get go.
Jhye was instrumental in Perth Scorcher’s runner-up feat in the Big Bash League last season, picking up 29 wickets to become the highest wicket-taker for the season.
The 24-year-old is bustling with raw talent and skills and will be eager to prove his mettle in the world’s biggest T20 cricket tournament too.
