Kolkata Knight Riders vs Mumbai Indians betting tips & predictions
Guy Giles has picked out four tips to consider as Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians meet on Wednesday.
KKR vs MI betting odds and predictions
Kolkata Knight Riders to win
After a poor performance in their opening match against RCB, Kolkata responded with a six-wicket dismantling of Punjab on Friday.
Mumbai have lost both of their matches so far but are the betting favourites for this one, so it’s worth backing their opponents while that remains the case.
Tilak Varma to score over 17.5 runs
Varma has settled into his debut IPL season with ease, following up a score of 22 in his first match with an entertaining 61 against Rajasthan.
He looks a good bet to pass this mark for a third straight game.
Rohit Sharma to be Mumbai Indians top batsman
Sharma is yet to catch fire in this IPL, having been outshone by opening partner Ishan Kishan in both games so far.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see him compile a big innings on Wednesday.
Sunil Narine to be Kolkata Knight Riders top bowler
Narine has taken one wicket in each of Kolkata’s two games so far, while conceding just 35 runs across his eight overs.
Should he continue to keep things that tight the wickets will surely come, especially against a Mumbai side that has lost six of their 13 wickets to spin.
