Mumbai Indians vs Rajasthan Royals betting tips & predictions
Guy Giles has picked out four tips to consider for your #BetYourWay as Mumbai Indians face Rajasthan Royals on Thursday.
Mumbai Indians to win
Both these teams have made a disappointing start to the tournament, winning two of their first five matches.
Mumbai have lost their last two in a row but are worth backing against a Rajasthan side that has lost some high-profile players from their squad.
The Indians have quality running throughout their lineup, and their performances will surely improve sooner rather than later.
Sanju Samson player performance: Over 38.5
Samson is more than capable of beating this mark with the bat alone, as he did by top-scoring for Rajasthan in their recent win over Kolkata with an unbeaten 42.
Should he take a catch behind the stumps – as he has done in four of five matches to date – then he will need 29 runs to do so again.
Chris Morris to be Rajasthan Royals top bowler
Morris is Rajasthan’s top wicket-taker so far with nine in five matches, four of which came in their most recent match against Kolkata.
With the seamer guaranteed to bowl his four overs and also feature at the death, he’s a solid bet in this market again on Thursday.
Rahul Chahar to be Mumbai Indians top bowler
Chahar continues to impress for Mumbai, having taken nine wickets to date – three more than anyone else in the squad.
The leggy has won or tied this market in their last four matches.
