CSK vs RR - who will win?
The close competition between these teams has been ongoing for years. However, this next game holds enormous significance for both sides this year. That's because, with only one game played, Chennai are firmly at the bottom of the table. In contrast, Rajasthan, also with one match under their belt, are in sixth. Whichever team loses in this match will slide down the table and for Chennai, this means remaining in the wooden spoon position.

Who will Win
This year our RR vs CSK prediction on the CSK vs RR score is made all the harder thanks to off-form players and the close scoring between these two teams. Because of this, it's really important to look at all the latest news on both teams, check which players are in form, and more before selecting your final bet. Taking a look at the type of pitch, the toss, and also the weather is important when determining who you think is likely to top the CSK vs RR scorecard.
The top batsman bet is a tough one to call here. For instance, for RR there are a number of great batsmen on the team. Rajasthan Royals are also known for hitting deep and have Morris, who hits pretty hefty blows when in top form. However, Chennai does look as though they match the RR form, at least on paper. Unfortunately, many of their go-to batsmen are currently out of form, including Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Faf Du Plessis.
For top bowler, Jos Buttler is a go-to option. In previous years, he has been excellent in this position, even grabbing the man of the match award in this same fixture last year. Dwayne Bravo is usually strong for Chennai - in fact, he's their bowler with the most wickets. But currently, Bravo is well and truly off form and not a great option in this CSK vs RR head to head.
A popular betting option is to choose the player of the match. As with other areas of this game, this is another hard one to call. Both teams look pretty equal for this upcoming game. However, RR does have a wide range of batsmen at their disposal, including Sanju Samson, Jos Buttler, and Ben Stokes. Any of these players could be an option in this IPL CSK vs RR event. This is especially important as this game is being played on a batting-friendly wicket.
Rajasthan v Chennai Head to Head
Chennai and Rajsthan have played one another 23 times over the years. In this face-off, though, it's Chennai that comes out top of the pile. They've won 14 of these encounters to Rajasthan's 9. This doesn't make things clear cut, though. Far from it, in fact, because Rajasthan has won both of their last meetings. Scores are also usually pretty high and close throughout the match regardless of the final outcome.
