DC v CSK Betting Tips
Our cricket betting experts have sat down to pick three top tips for this match.
Tip 1 – Match Prediction – Dehli Capitals win 8/11 – Bet here
We have all been impressed with the performance of the Dehli Capitals in this years IPL. The strength in the team they have built is shining through and there seems to be a real cohesion in the squad.
The addition of Marcus Stoinis, who previously had three teams in three years, looks a great buy. He was flying in the Big Bash this year and has brought that explosive batting form with him. It was a straight battle for his services between the Royals and the Capitals with DC winning at 4.8 Crore in the end.
Aussie Alex Carey, the Wicket keeper & batsman, has just come into the site and has 28 runs in 2 matches so far. In BB09 he averages 35.55 from 11 innings, at a 125.32 SR, so he is decent with the bat when needed. Carey was also picked up in the 2020 auction with a late bid from the Capitals after it looked like he was going to RR or RCB. At 2.4 Crore he looks a good buy and we think he will have a big part to play in this team between now and the end of the tournament.
When we look at the top batsmen for the team we can see the quality running through –
- S Iyer 298 runs
- S Dhawan 258 runs
- P Shaw 202 runs
- M Stoinis 193 runs
- R Pant 176 runs
- S Hetmyer 91 runs
There is a good bunch of batman and the runs are being well shared out amongst them. The experience of Iyer and Dhawan sets them in a good steed at the top of the orders. We’ve also seen Hetmyer smash out the quickest 50 of the IPL so far which was incredible to watch.
With the ball, they have been impressive too. Kagiso Rabada is the leading wicket-taker with 18 so far from with matches. Nortje has backed him up with 10, Patel and Ashwin have 7 each. Stoinis has chipped in with 6.
Chennai Super Kings have been a real let down so far. They were the tournaments second-favourites at the start but now look set to finish in the bottom half. Three wins from eight simply aren’t good enough from them.
Tip 2 – DC most sixes on the match 21/20
We have taken this bet based on the stats –
Average sixes per game
- Dehli Capitals 6.3
- Chennai Super Kings 5.5
Tip 3 – Rabada top Dehli Capitals team bowler 7/4
Rabada is the top bowler in the IPL2020. He has been the top team bowler in 5 of the 8 matches so far and was unlucky not to be top in 6 after Ashwin got the award one match with figures of 2/2 from one over. The odds of 7/4 look fair to us based on how he is playing at the moment. Excluding the match against KXIP Super Kings have been losing wickets regularly with an average of 8 wickets falling for them in their matches so far. If wickets fall in this one then we’d expect Rabada to be in the mix for them.
