2018 Indian Premier League (IPL): Week 2 Preview & Betting Tips

Sat, 14/04/2018 - 2:59pm, admin

The first week is done in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the initial signs coming from the subcontinent is that this 2018 edition is going to be a very closely fought event. We look ahead to the weekend action and what’s in store.

Mumbai Indians vs Delhi Daredevils (Mumbai Apr 14, 4:00 PM local)

Mumbai started their campaign with two straight losses which puts them under pressure to pick up a win in this match. Interestingly, both their losses have come by one-wicket margin. Rohit Sharma would be eager to get his team composition right and get back on track.

Delhi also started with two contradictory losses. They too will be desperate for a turnaround as a third loss on the spin will keep them glued to the bottom of the table. Gautam Gambhir’s men have their task cut out.

TIP: Mumbai to score more in the first six overs - $1.73 at CrownBet                                                                                                  

Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad (Kolkata Apr 14, 8:00 PM local)

Kolkata had a mixed bag in their tournament, starting with a win over RCB but following it up with a narrow loss to CSK. With the aggressive openers at its disposal, they look set to challenge the sixes count!

SRH looked a class act in both their matches, although they nearly goofed up their second win. Shikhar Dhawan’s form at the top and their exceptional bowling resources make the Sunrisers a very dangerous side.

TIP: KKR to hit more sixes - $1.67 at Sportsbet

Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals (Bengaluru Apr 15, 4:00 PM local)

Bagalore got back to winning ways with AB de Villiers leading the way on Friday night. They get back to the field at home on Sunday and look good to pick up their second win of the season.

Rajasthan are lucky to have got a win in their kitty, because had it not been for the rain interruption they would have lost out to DD. The poor returns of Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler is hurting them big.

TIP: RCB to hit more fours - $1.80 at Unibet

Kings XI Punjab vs Chennai Super Kings (Mohali Apr 15, 8:00 PM local)

Kings XI has been one of the surprise packages of the season with impressive performances in both their games. Though they lost against RCB in their second game, the Kings XI look set to surprise a few big teams.

What a comeback season Channai are having! The experienced Dhoni is enjoying the fruits of stuffing his side with experienced campaigners. More importantly, the presence of multiple match winners makes CSK a very strong contender, early in the tournament!

TIP: CSK to hit more sixes - $2.10 at Ladbrokes
