Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back RCB to win @ 1.8 with Parimatch
It’s been hard viewing for RCB franchise fans this season – they have been diabolical in every single defeat. Indeed, they have never had a poorer start to an IPL season in their history and coach Stephen Fleming admits his team are feeling the pressure.
During a tetchy post-match conference in Saturday’s defeat to fellow strugglers Sunrisers Hyderabad, Fleming responded to a question about what is going wrong this season: “Probably each facet [of the game] is a concern, if not at one stage then altogether. We were well outplayed today. We’re sort of learning.But it’s just pressure, we’re just not getting ourselves in positions to pressurise the opposition and we’re just coming a distant second.”
Contrastingly, the RCB are playing some excellent cricket in these early stages. I can see them being in the shake-up for the championship rounds of the competition.
I will be backing my match winner betting prediction with a confident wager on the RCB to win and I will be placing it with Parimatch – find out about how they operate by checking out our full Parimatch review.
Today’s Chennai Super Kings vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Back Virat Kohli to be RCB’s top batsman @ 3.65 with 10CRIC
The ex-skipper is warming to his task and his most recent innings against the Mumbai Indians suggests he’s only just getting started. He hit a calm and composed 48 runs from 36 balls to guide his team to an easy 7-wicket victory.
He is averaging 35.33 so far this season at a strike rate of 135.89, and will be out for revenge after captaining his side to two defeats against the CSK last season.
I will be backing him to top score for the RCB and will place my bet with 10CRIC – an online betting site that prioritises the best individual player markets.
