Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore Winner Prediction
Recommended Bet: Back Rajasthan Royals to win @ 2.18 with Parimatch
I think the odds makers are wrong on this one! The collective form of the RR’s batting unit makes for marvellous reading – in the two games they have played so far, they are averaging 201.5 runs per innings.
Their bowlers look in great nick too – namely Trent Boult and Prasidh Krishna, an opening partnership that can work in tandem to exploit any conditions in their favour and who have both been in the wickets this season.
True, we are yet to see how they perform when chasing down a total – but they look to have a great balance to their side and I can see them having too much for the RCB.
That’s not to say RCB won’t be a threat. They have some phenomenal players – Faf du Plessis and Virat Kohli are two of the most decorated players in the shortest format and Mohammed Siraj is a pacey, aggressive bowling option.
However, I will be sticking with the RR and I will be placing my match winner bet with Parimatch – they are a leading Indian betting site with hundreds of pre-match and in-play markets at competitive prices. Read our full Parimatch review here.
Today’s Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Hot Bet
Recommended Bet: Shimron Hetmyer to be the RR’s top batsman @ 8.97 with 10CRIC
There are some more solid candidates to be the RR’s top batsman, but at a price just shy of double figures, I’m going to take a chance on the West Indies star batter to provide some extra value!
The middle-order hitman has had a good tournament so far – hitting 32 from 13 balls against the Sunrisers Hyderabad and 35 runs from 14 balls against the Mumbai Indians.
That makes for a very healthy strike rate, but he also appears to be seeing it like a beach ball. If early wickets do fall for the RR, Hetmyer will be in an ideal position to reward our Hot Bet.
I will be placing my bet with 10CRIC – they tend to have the best player market prices in the industry. Read our full 10CRIC review here to find out more.
