LSG vs RCB betting tips and odds
Royal Challengers Bangalore to win
Bangalore won three of their last four matches to claim the final spot in the playoffs, and are worth backing as the underdogs in the Eliminator on Wednesday.
The Royal Challengers beat Lucknow by 18 runs in their only previous meeting this season, and the return to form of Virat Kohli has come at the perfect time.
Rajat Patidar to score over 16.5 runs
Patidar has slotted beautifully into this Bangalore team after his introduction into the middle order halfway through the tournament.
He has passed this mark in four of five innings, with the only exception being a score of 16.
Virat Kohli to be Royal Challengers Bangalore top batsman
Kohli has had a poor tournament by his standards but could yet play a crucial role for his franchise as they search for a first IPL title.
He top-scored with 73 off 54 in their final group-stage game, and has amassed 181 runs over his last five innings.
Josh Hazlewood to be Royal Challengers Bangalore top bowler
Hazlewood took 15 wickets in 10 games during the group stage, and topped this market with two wickets in Bangalore’s final match against table-toppers Gujarat.
He also took four wickets in their win over Lucknow on 19 April, so looks like he could play a big part on Wednesday.
