DC vs RCB Betting Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back the Royal Challengers Bangalore to win @ 1.91 with Pure Win
The Royal Challengers Bangalore were responsible for two of the four defeats the Delhi Capitals suffered last year – and I am backing them to keep their winning run going here.
On paper, I feel they have the strongest team in the IPL – the trinity of Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, and Glenn Maxwell have dominated the Twenty20 scene for years and form a formidable batting unit at the top of the order.
They suffered a confidence-denting loss to the struggling Chennai Super Kings on Tuesday, but I think they can bounce back here.
The Delhi Capitals, meanwhile, have made a stuttering start to proceedings. They will hope their 44-run win over the Kolkata Knight Riders will act as a catalyst to their campaign, but I feel like their underlying form is a concern. They lost to both newcomers – the Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants – in the previous two games, struggling to keep up with the run rate on both occasions.
A win for either side will feel like a significant step forward to the playoffs – particularly given the dire form of the Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians.
That’s why I’m sticking with the Royal Challengers Bangalore to be the match winner – I will be placing my bet with Pure Win. Read our Pure Win review to find out why!
DC vs RCB Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Both teams to score 60+ runs in the first six overs @ 8.0 with Betway
Every now and then I like to check out Betway’s pre-built match specials. They are one of the only Indian betting sites to expand its pre-match cricket betting opportunities to include unique markets. You can find out more by reading our Betway review.
The bet that stands out is both teams to get their innings off to a flyer. In their victory over the KKR, the DC had hit 60 runs after just 5.2 overs. Meanwhile, the RCB have been threatening to spark into life at the top of the innings for a while now.
It’s a bit of a wild bet – but at 8.0, it’s worth a small wager!
