Why bet on the Delhi Capitals to win the match @1.68 ?

Delhi Capitals are in brilliant form - DC look to be in good shape and are one of the most balanced sides in the tournament. Their bowling attack is the best in the league, while they have already chased down some huge scores. The batting top order is in great form. They won their previous game in dominating fashion, chasing down 154 in just 16.3 overs. 

Return of Anrich Nortje and Chris Woakes – Nortje was one of the shining lights of DC’s campaign last season, as his fiery pace earned him 22 wickets and he complemented his fellow countryman Rabada perfectly, ensuring DC have the most lethal pace bowling pair in the league. Chris Woakes has been very economical in the 3 matches he has played this season, and with Rabada in poor form, both could make a return to the side and create another formidable pairing.   

Punjab Kings often struggle in the middle order – While Punjab have one of the most prolific top orders with Gayle, Rahul and Mayank, they often struggle to deal with a top order collapse, and don’t have much firepower in the middle order.

KXIP vs DC who will win?

As with many of these games, predicting the final score and who will win between these two sides is a hard task. Both teams have a lot going for them this year. And, importantly, in previous years, the margin between wins and losses have been minimal. Their last game was even a tie with the game moving into extra overs to see who would win and get the score on the points table.

With this in mind, the best thing you can do is choose which is the form team on the day of the game.

DC vs KXIP Betting Strategies

As we mentioned, these two teams tend to offer up a very close game. However, particularly on the KXIP side, there have been some pretty impressive wins too. With this in mind, we shouldn't put this aside as a possibility for this next match either. However, it is likely that we will see a win margin of several wickets one way or the other. To help you out, here are a few of the best bets for this KXIP vs DC match.

Who will Win

Predicting who will win outright could be a daunting angle to take on this game, given how close recent games have run. With that in mind, check the latest news regarding the teams, players and overall form before finalising your bet. It's also important to take into account who is playing at home, the toss, weather and pitch condition to determine the likelihood of which side will win.

Top Batsman

Captain of Punjab, KL Rahul has consistently been called player of the match. And this is well deserved. As a batsman, he sits head and shoulders above the rest with a good batting average. Despite this, he doesn't have the best strike rate out there but is reliable and that's half the battle. For a bet on the top batsman, you would do well to back him in this game. Other options on the Punjab team include Mayank Agarwal as he's a strong right-handed opening batsman, but remember to check out how these players act under different balls.

Top Bowler

When choosing the top bowler bet, you will want to make sure you pick someone reliable. Shikhar Dhawan for the Delhi Capitals is an excellent choice in this instance. He's their starting bowler too, which makes him a good option. Making sure to check the player updates is important here, as players such as Axar Patel and Daniel Sams (for RR), are actually not playing due to Covid scares. Shami and B Rabada are also good options here. Check out the number of wickets taken in each innings by these bowlers to determine whether they're the best option.

Player Betting

Betting on specific players to achieve something special within the match, such as man of the match, can also be a lucrative way to go. Once again, KL Rahul is one of the best options. He's generally an exceptional all-round player and would be a great pick for the DC vs KXIP game. Of course, you can look at other player positions such as the wicketkeeper, Rishabh Pant or, if you think Delhi has got this, choose their key player, Shikhar Dhawan.

DC vs KXIP Head to Head

These two teams have gone head to head 26 times. At the moment, Punjab has a slight edge over Delhi having won 15 of their encounters compared to 11 from Delhi. However, some of these games have ended in a tie before, with Delhi the victor in the subsequent one-over eliminator round. At the end of the day, it's all to play for.
