Royal Challengers Bangalore v Mumbai Indians betting tips & predictions
Guy Giles' cricket tips for Monday's IPL match include a winner and a top batsman in the match.
RCB v MI betting odds and tips:
Mumbai Indians to win
Mumbai bounced back from an opening-day defeat to thrash Kolkata Knight Riders by 49 runs on Wednesday.
Bangalore, meanwhile, failed to build on their opening victory as they collapsed to a 97-run mauling by Kings XI Punjab on Thursday.
Aaron Finch to score under 23.5 runs
Finch has compiled innings of 29 and 20 so far, which isn’t necessarily a bad return, but it is the manner in which he has scored those runs that is concerning.
The Australia captain managed just six boundaries across both innings, with his strike rate – normally above 150 in T20 cricket – hovering around 100.
Another below-par performance on Monday wouldn’t be a surprise.
Suryakumar Yadav to hit over 2.5 fours
Yadav hit six fours on his way to 47 in Mumbai’s win over KKR, and also managed a couple of boundaries in the match before that.
The 30-year-old looks in good touch at No. 3 for the Indians, and an odds-against price here is definitely tempting.
Top batsman in the match to score over 63.5 runs
There has been an innings of 64 or more in three of the four matches played by these two sides so far.
With Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Quinton de Kock, AB de Villiers and several other world-class batsmen on show, Monday’s match looks likely to follow suit.
