Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders betting tips & predictions
Four tips to consider as Chennai Super Kings play Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL on Saturday.
CSK vs KKR betting tips and odds
KKR to hit most sixes
KKR will always take the aggressive option under Brendon McCullum, and a team featuring Sunil Narine, Nitish Rana and Andre Russell is built to clear the ropes.
CSK have lost Faf du Plessis and will be missing Moeen Ali, so two of their best six-hitters from last season aren’t playing here.
KKR to have the highest score after six overs
On a very similar theme, there is also value in backing KKR to score more runs in the opening six overs.
Narine, who swings the bat from ball one, is likely to open the batting, while the absence of Du Plessis and Moeen will harm CSK’s powerplay chances.
Sam Billings to score over 16.5 runs
A runs line of just 16.5 looks low for Billings.
He cleared this mark in four of his last five innings in the Big Bash earlier this year and is a consistent player in the middle-order.
Ravi Jadeja to be CSK’s top wicket-taker
If KKR do come out firing, Jadeja is the most likely CSK bowler to peg them back.
His wily variations in pace resulted in him taking two wickets in the 2021 final against this opposition.
