Match Prediction & Tips

Match Prediction: Delhi Capitals to win at 1.72*

Im not really suprised by these odds and overall id have to agree. The Delhi Capitals havent looked like the DC side we all know can play, nevertheless at 1.72 we’ll be backing them for victory.

 

  • Pick 1: Chris Woakes, top team bowler, odds 4.50

Im surprised Woakes has such long odds for this market. He’s been in great form and the stats indicate he’s top bowler.

  • Pick 2: Mohammed Shami under 1.5 wickets, odds 1.66

Shami has been in decent form with ball in hand. A nice market to add to an accumulator and we fancy him to pick up a wicket.
