May 11th 2018, 9:30pm, By: sribham

One team (Sunrisers Hyderabad) is sure of its place in the 2018 Indian Premier League Playoffs while one team (Delhi Daredevils) is mathematically out of contention. With every combination possible, the permutations in the IPL for this weekend's fixture looks very interesting. We preview the weekend’s offerings and provide our IPL betting tips.

 

2018 Indian Premier League Week 6 Betting Tips

Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders, Indore (Saturday 8:30pm AEST)

This will be a massive encounter for both the sides, considering the recent downturn of form. While it is still not alarm bells for Kings, three of their last four matches have ended in losses. Capturing their momentum back is very crucial ahead of the Playoffs.

For the Knight Riders, losses to Mumbai Indians have dragged them into the bottom half of the table. They have everything to play for now, as they look to catch up with other contenders. With their erratic form however, that looks a difficult proposition.

Delhi Daredevils vs Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi (Sunday 12:30am AEST)

The Delhi Daredevils are out of the tournament after their latest loss to the Sunrisers. However, they will not be short of motivation, as the young stars will look to end the season on a high. Even the misfiring foreign imports will be eager to get their game back on track.

RCB are still alive in the tournament, but only by the barest possible margin. Going by their recent form – four losses in five – it is only a matter of time before they join DD on the sidelines.

Chennai Super Kings vs Sunrisers Hyderabad, Pune (Sunday 8:30pm AEST)

This is a top-of-the-table clash between two sides who look the most probable candidates to finish in the top two spots. Should Chennai win their Friday game against the Royals, this game could be a direct shootout for the top spot.

Sunrisers have built their season on the back of impressive bowling performances. To add to that, they have improved their batting in the recent games and are beginning to show signs of all-round ability. On current form, they look a tough team to beat.

Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai (Monday 12:30am AEST)

Mumbai have made their traditional comeback into the top four with some spirited performances in the recent games. Four wins out of five games and Rohit Sharma’s side is getting into top gear at the right time.

The Royals have an important face-off against Chennai on Friday. Should they win that game, they will be in direct contention with Mumbai and Kolkata for the fourth playoff spot. Even if they lose, the Royals will look to come to the party and be the side that decide the fortunes of top four.
