Match Prediction & Tips

Match Prediction: RCB to win at 1.80*

Its still very early days in this years IPL. RCB were fantastic in their opening game, wheres the Sunrisers left fans a little dissapointed. We fancy RCB to snatch victory and with odds of 1.80 that could be a nice little earner.

  • Pick 1: AB De Villiers, Total runs OVER 24.5 – odds = 1.83

AB was fantastic for Bangalore in their opening victory against the Mumbai Indians. He was a real catalyst in the win smashing four 4’s and two 6’s. He could easily take the game to SRH.

  • Pick 2: Harshal Patel – Top team bowler – odds = 3.75

Patel was simply on fire against MI. A five wicket haul and incredibly economic at 6.75 runs, he will be looking to carry this form on against SRH.
