Match Prediction & Tips

Match Prediction: Chennai Super Kings to win at 6/5*

Why are Mumbai the favourites here? We cannot see a reason. We would have expected to see the odds the other way around. CSK has won 5 in a row and look comfortable chasing anything.

They have a well-balanced team and will be full of confidence. Whilst Mumbai got a win last time we would not describe them as a form team.

  • Pick 1: Super Kings highest opening partnership 1.85

These odds look good to us, with the form of CSK’s openers. 

  • Pick 2: Under 335.5 total match runs 1.83

Mumbai Indians have not been scoring well and the unders line here is the best option.
