Match Prediction & Tips

Match Prediction: KKR to win at 2.10 *

There has been some very strange results in IPL21 and we think this match could really be a surprise. The KKR really looked up for the fight against PBKS and with a good bowling lineup were backing them for victory. 

 

 

 

 

  • Pick 1: Rishabh Pant UNDER 38.5 runs, odds = 1.83

Pant has been in great form for DC. He’s always capable of racking up a heavy score. The KKR bowlers will certainly be looking to stop him and with Andre Russell they have more than a good chance of doing so. 

  • Pick 2: Eoin Morgan TOP TEAM BATSMAN, odds = 5.50

Morgan had a great innings against PBKS. He’ll be looking to carry that great form into this match. If KKR are to get a win, Morgan will need to be on fire and at these odds, we think this could be a great pick.
