Shimron Hetmyer to score over 16.5 runs

Hetmyer was run out second ball in Saturday’s IPL opener, so we can put a line through that here.

The 22-year-old was the third top-scorer in the Caribbean Premier League last summer, the only other franchise T20 tournament that he has been involved in, so back him to pass this mark.

Moeen Ali to score under 18.5 runs

Ali was tamely dismissed for nine in that match, extending his run of poor form from the winter.

The Englishman has failed to pass this mark in six of his last seven innings across all formats, including in all of his last five.

Highest opening partnership: Mumbai Indians

Mumbai’s star-studded team is spearheaded by Rohit Sharma and Quinten de Kock at the top of the order, arguably the best opening partnership in the competition.

They put on 33 in their first match on Sunday so have to be backed at a price that prefers the chances of their opponent.
