Here are four IPL betting tips that Guy Giles thinks you should consider for Rajasthan Royals vs Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturday.


RR vs RCB betting tips & odds:

Ben Stokes to score over 21.5 runs

Stokes managed just seven runs in his first appearance in this year’s IPL, but has since settled nicely with 41 in a loss to table-toppers Delhi.

This looks a relatively low mark for the England star, who has formed a dangerous opening partnership with international teammate Jos Buttler.

Steve Smith to score under 23.5 runs

After a promising start to the tournament saw him compile back-to-back half-centuries, Smith has looked hopelessly out of form for the Royals.

His scores since then read 3, 5, 6, 24, 5 and 1, and backing him to fall short of this mark again on Saturday looks a decent bet.

Rajasthan Royals to hit most sixes

The Royals have one of the most destructive batting lineups in the tournament, with Stokes, Buttler, Sanju Samson and Rahul Tewatia all capable of clearing the ropes multiple times per match.

Bangalore have a strong batting lineup too, but just one of their batsmen – AB de Villiers – features in the top 20 for sixes hit so far.

Virat Kohli to be Royal Challengers Bangalore top batsman

Kohli has recovered from a poor start to the IPL with some big innings in recent matches, and looks back to his very best for RCB.

His five most recent scores are 72*, 43, 90*, 33* and 48, with this bet landing in all five of those matches.
