Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Sunrisers Hyderabad betting tips & predictions
Guy Giles has picked out four tips to consider as Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad meet on Saturday.
Sunrisers Hyderabad to win
Bangalore’s win over Lucknow on Tuesday saw them rise to second in the table, with five wins from seven matches representing a positive start for the IPL’s serial underachievers.
Hyderabad, meanwhile, have recovered from a slow start with four successive wins, all coming by comprehensive seven or eight-wicket margins.
That momentum means it’s worth backing the value with the Sunrisers on Saturday.
Aiden Markram to score over 22.5 runs
Markram has been very consistent in the Hyderabad middle order, passing this mark in three of his five innings so far.
He has finished unbeaten in four of those five efforts, and scores of 41* and 68* in his last two innings make him a good bet to continue that form against Bangalore.
Anuj Rawat to score under 18.5 runs
It has been a bit of a struggle for Rawat at the top of the order, with the Bangalore opener failing to pass this mark in four of his seven innings.
He has fallen short in his last three trips to the middle, racking up a total of just 16 runs in that time.
Thangarasu Natarajan to be Sunrisers Hyderabad top bowler
Natarajan is Hyderabad’s top wicket-taker at this point in the tournament, with 12 in six matches.
He topped this market with three wickets in their only previous match at the Brabourne.
