DC vs PBKS Betting Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back Punjab Kings to win @ 1.94 with Pure Win
I am genuinely taken aback by some bookmakers favouring the Capitals to win – the Kings have been more convincing across the board and I feel like a confident bet on them to win.
Before I get too effusive in my praise of the Kings, I must cover their disappointing defeat to the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Their cavalier approach to batting has worked for them this season, but there was a lack of maturity in their performance on Saturday.
Liam Livingstone, their gun batsman who is in the form of his life at the moment, hit 60 from 33 balls before being pressured out by a slowing run rate caused by his faltering team-mates. Shahrukh Khan and Odean Smith used up a combined 42 balls to score 39 runs – each trying to go for the big shots rather than focusing on getting Livingstone back on strike.
Despite the nature of their performance, I still think they will have enough in the tank to defeat the Capitals, a franchise struggling for rhythm even in victory this season.
I am placing my bet with Pure Win – they always offer generous odds on the match winner market. You can find more reasons why I will be focusing my DC vs PBKS betting exploits with them by reading our full Pure Win review.
DC vs PBKS Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Liam Livingstone to score 25+ runs, to hit 1+ six, and to take a wicket @ 3.30 with Betway
Liam Livingstone continues to prove why he was the most expensive foreign acquisition at the IPL Mega Auction.
The Lancashire-based all-rounder has hit 224 runs at an average of 37.33 so far this year – hitting no fewer than 16 sixes along the way (three of which register in the top five longest sixes of the tournament at 108m, 106m, and 105m.) That’s the joint third-highest in the tournament at the time of writing.
He has the best strike rate of any player with more than 200 runs and can also turn his arm over – he claimed 2/25 against the Chennai Super Kings back on April 3rd.
I fancy him to do a bit of everything against the Capitals, and I like the look of this Betway special. To find out why we rate Betway so highly for IPL betting, read our Betway review.
