Royal Challengers Bangalore v Rajasthan Royals betting tips & predictions
Adam Drury's cricket tips for Saturday's first IPL match include individual runs, player performance and a top wicket-taker.
RR v RCB betting tips and odds:
Devdutt Padikkal to score over 20.5 runs
Padikkal has made a terrific start to the IPL, passing 50 in two of his three innings.
With his runs threshold still relatively low, this is a solid bet.
AB de Villiers player performance: over 35.5
De Villiers has been typically impressive so far, scoring 51, 28 and 55* in his first three innings.
He assumed wicket-keeping duties in the last match, taking one catch, and that should help him pass this player performance threshold – with each catch worth 10 points.
Steve Smith player performance: over 28.5
Smith would be a good enough bet to score 29 runs, having done so in two of his three innings so far.
If the Rajasthan captain can take a catch, however, he need only score 19 runs for this bet to land.
Jofra Archer to be top Rajasthan Royals bowler
Archer was exceptional for Rajasthan against KKR on Thursday, taking two wickets and bowling well enough to have managed more.
That was enough for him to win in this market and he is a nice bet to repeat the trick in this match.
