Here are four IPL betting tips that Adam Drury thinks you should consider for the match between Punjab Kings and Chennai Super Kings on Friday.


PBKS vs CSK betting tips and odds

Punjab Kings to win

Punjab’s frailties with the ball were evident in Monday’s win against Rajasthan, but their batting firepower got them over the line.

That should be the case again, with KL Rahul, Chris Gayle and Deepak Hooda all in good nick. Overseas signings Jhye Richardson and Riley Meredith should improve, too.

Suresh Raina to score over 22.5 runs

Raina made a fine return to the IPL after missing the 2020 competition, scoring 54 in CSK’s first match of the tournament on Saturday.

The former India international has averaged 23 or higher in every edition of the IPL that he has featured in, and is tasked with holding together what doesn’t look like a particularly strong CSK line-up.

Deepak Hooda to score over 16.5 runs

Hooda smashed a brilliant 64 in Punjab’s first match of the competition on Monday, getting his team up to a winning total.

Considering that he scored 62* in his last match of the 2020 IPL, a runs line of 16.5 seems very low.

Deepak Hooda to be Punjab Kings’ top batsman

As an extension, we’re going to back Hooda to top score for his team as well.

His 64 on Monday was only beaten by KL Rahul, and his explosive style means that he could do the damage even if given very little time.
