Match Prediction & Tips

Match Prediction: Royal Challengers to win at 8/11*
We cannot look past RCB as the winners of this match. They are in excellent form and the Kings are not.
With the Kings poor bowling attack and the batting of RCB we could see them getting a 200+ score if they bat first.

  • Pick 1: Kohli over 0.5 sixes 4/5*

These odds caught our eye from the other players in this market. This looks good value as we can see Kohli getting in and making a big score.

  • Pick 2: Ab de Villers over 2.5 match first 11/10*

Ab has 16 fours in 5 innings and was in great nick with the bat last time out. We always like to pick a player in form with value odds in these markets.
