Match Prediction & Tips
Match Prediction: Royal Challengers Bangalore to win at 1.72 *
Its no surprise to see the RCB as clear favourites for this match. We agree with the bookmakers and at 1.72, this may well be a great addition to an accumulator
- Pick 1: AD Russell, top team bowler, odds 4.50
Russell is currently RCB’s top bowler amassing 7 wickets already. He’s always great to watch and if hes up for the contest we can see him adding more wickets to haul.
- Pick 2: KKR to hit UNDER 6.5 sixes, odds 1.90
A nice looking market. We’ll be backing this at 1.90. If RCB bowl like they have been doing, KKR are in for a long afternoon.
