Gujarat Titans vs Lucknow Super Giants betting tips & predictions
Guy Giles has picked out four tips to consider as Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants meet on Monday.
Lucknow Super Giants to have the highest opening partnership
Lucknow look to have a well-balanced squad for their inaugural IPL season, and will have one of the strongest opening pairs in KL Rahul and Quinton de Kock, with Evin Lewis also in the squad.
This looks a good bet against a Gujarat team that lost Jason Roy in the build up to the tournament.
Matthew Wade to score over 20.5 runs
Wade is one of the options for Gujarat to partner Gill at the top of the order, and he comes into the tournament in good form.
Wade’s last four scores in all formats read 43*, 86, 61 and 50, so this looks like an achievable runs line for him on Monday.
Matthew Wade to hit a six
It’s worth extending the above bet by backing Wade to clear the ropes at least once in the match.
He has hit at least one maximum in three of his last four innings in all formats, and has a strike rate of nearly 130 in T20 cricket.
Rashid Khan to be Gujarat Titans top bowler
One thing going for Gujarat is that they have the world’s best T20 bowler in their squad.
Khan is always a wicket threat in this format and is worth backing in this market in the Titans’ first game.
