Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back RCB to win @ 1.62 with Casumo
A 50/50 head to head record aside, RCB have all the trumps going into this one
Not only do they appear to have a much better side ‘on paper’ but they’ve also started much better.
In Glenn Maxwell, they have one of the competition’s most in-form batsmen and stacked like they are with high-class all-rounders, players who can change a game with either bat or ball.
To win the Royals would need to be given about 170 to chase. Any more than that and they’re unlikely to get them and if they bat first, they should find themselves in trouble, as well.
Go with RCB.
RR Top Bowler: Chris Morris
Recommended Bet: Chris Morris Royals Top Bowler @ 4.00 with 10CRIC
We already mentioned the good start that Sakariya has made to the IPL season with six wickets.
Next best for Rajasthan is Chris Morris on five, who has bowled pretty well so far.
There’s not much to choose between them in terms of wickets and they’re the same price at 4.0. So on this occasion it’s best to go with the more experienced man, which of course is Morris.
Today’s RCB vs RR Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Glenn Maxwell to be man-of-the-match @ 11.0 with 10CRIC
Glenn Maxwell has been one of the stand-out players of the IPL so far.
Playing in a star-studded batting line-up seems to suit him after a few failures at Punjab and he’s in the form of his life.
He’s won two of the last three man-of-the-match awards and yet there are a few players shorter than him to get MOM here, such as Kohli, who hasn’t got going.
It would be a big ask to get it three times out of four. But as the in-form batsman of the team we think will win, he’s a good price at 11.0.
