Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians Betting Odds

The Mumbai Indians are the most successful side in the history of the IPL – they’re not playing like that at the moment. A run of three straight defeats means their campaign is fast-approaching emergency status.

I am backing the Royal Challengers Bangalore to pile on the misery as part of my cricket match betting tips. For more of today’s IPL betting odds, read below!

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians Winner Prediction

Recommended Bet: Back RCB to win @ 1.72 with Pure Win

I’m taking the easy option and backing against a team horrendously out of form for my match prediction. The Mumbai Indians have so many excellent players – but the main ones are out of form.

The usually consistent Jasprit Bumrah is wicketless in two of the three defeats – his total tournament figures currently read 3/86 from 10.2 overs at 8.43 per over.

From a batting perspective, they appear to be having trouble with the timing of their innings. In defeats against the Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders, they posted scores of 177/5 and 161/4 after batting first on both occasions – good efforts, but with plenty of wickets in hand, you would expect more runs to play with.

Conversely, the Royal Challengers Bangalore are coming to the boil nicely – a disappointing defeat to the Punjab Kings on the first day of the season feels like a long time ago after two big victories against two of the tournament’s best performers so far in the Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.

I am pretty confident in my betting prediction and I will be placing my wager at Pure Win – they usually boast the best match winner odds! Read our Pure Win review to find out more.

Today’s Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians Hot Bet

Recommended Bet: Back Glenn Maxwell to be Player of the Match @ 9.0 with 10CRIC

I like the Man of the Match market! The all-rounders have two shots at turning in match-winning performances and the odds are always generous.

That logic means I will be backing the Big Show – Australian Glenn Maxwell – to live up to his nickname on what looks set to be his first appearance of the IPL season.

We all know what he can do with the bat – his record-breaking innings in the Big Bash league remains fresh in the memory! He is also an effective spin-bowling option. If he clicks, it’s difficult to see how he won’t get match recognition.

I will place my bet with 10CRIC – they lead the way with bigger and better odds on individual player markets. Check out our full 10CRIC review to find out more.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Recent Form

Faf du Plessis’ side is chasing a third straight IPL win after narrow wins over the Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals.

Although they aren’t setting the world alight, they are churning out results as they bid to win the competition for the first time.

They appear to be more comfortable chasing than defending a target – both wins have come after batting second while their only defeat came about when setting a score.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians betting odds have them as narrow favourites, but I think the gap between the two sides at this moment is bigger than the bookmakers suggest. I think there is value to be had in backing the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Team News

A Cricket Australia stipulation that contracted players were only allowed to play in the IPL from the 6th April onwards has meant Maxwell and Josh Hazlewood have been missing for the RCB so far this season.

Although Maxwell looks set to feature, Hazlewood is unlikely to be available before 12th April – he is yet to join up with teammates in the RCB bubble.

There were no injuries to report from their most recent victory over the Royals.

Player to Watch: Harshal Patel

Last year’s top wicket-taker may not be proving as lethal with the ball this season, but he’s keeping a lid on things!

Against the Knight Riders, he equalled the record for the number of maiden overs in an IPL innings, and claimed 1/18 from four overs against the Royals.

Indeed, at the time of writing, he has the sixth best economy rate in the competition – going at 5.41 per over from 12 overs. The pressure on opposing batters will tell eventually – I can see him topping the wicket-taking column for the RCB here. I will be backing him at 3.75 with Betway.

Bangalore’s Likely XI

Faf du Plessis (c), Anuj Rawat, Virat Kohli, Glenn Maxwell, David Willey, Sherfane Rutherford, Dinesh Khartik (wk), Harshel Patel, Wanindu Hasaranga, Mohammed Siraj, and Akash Deep

Mumbai Indians Recent Form

Rock bottom! It cannot get any worse – three games and three defeats. It was a particularly painful outing last time out – after setting the Kolkata Knight Riders 162 to win, the game looked in the bag when Andre Russell was dismissed to leave them 101/5 from 13.1 overs.

Less than three overs later and the game was over! An incredible knock by Australian Pat Cummins equalled the fastest ever half century in the IPL and made a mockery of suggestions the pitch was difficult to bat on.

It’s just not going the way of the Mumbai Indians at the moment, and I can’t see it getting better here.

Team News

The return of Suryakumar Yadav was a huge positive for the Indians – the Indian international hit 52 from 36 balls on his return from a finger injury sustained in his country’s tour of the West Indies.

There didn’t appear to be any further injury concerns in the aftermath of their defeat to the KKR.

Player to Watch: Ishan Kishan

His team aren’t doing the business right now, but that has nothing to do with the individual form of Ishan Kishan, who is second in this season’s IPL run-scoring rankings at the time of writing.

He didn’t quite get going against the KKR, hitting 14 from 21 balls at a strike rate of 66.67 – I don’t think he will make the same mistake again. I’m going to back him to score 50+ runs with Betway at 3.50.

Mumbai Indians’ Likely XI

Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Dewald Brevis, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Kieron Pollard, Daniel Sams, Murugan Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Tymal Mills, Basil Thampi.

Venue & conditions

The average score across the previous three IPL fixtures this season at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium is 168.33, suggesting it favours the batting sides.

However, I’m expecting an attritional affair – particularly with the season potentially on the line for the Indians. The weather will be dry and warm, with humidity forecast around 40%.

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians Head-to-Head

Unsurprisingly, the most successful team in IPL history dominates the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians head to head, with the latter winning 17 of the 29 games played out between these two.

However, the RCB have won their last two against the Mumbai Indians – and I’m backing them to make it three in a row!

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians Toss Prediction

The Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians toss winner statistic also read favourably for the Mumbai Indians – they have won 19 of the flips! I’m backing them to keep their superiority strong with another correct call here.
