Betting Preview, Picks And Prediction

To Win The Match

LSG have odds of 1.80 to win this match, which is very tempting as they have only lost 3 matches all season. KKR have lost 4 of their last 5 matches,and have odds of 2.05

Top Team Batsman

Captain Shreyas Iyer is again the favourite to be KKR’s top scorer in this match, as he is widely considered to be their most consistent batsman and has odds of 3.75. Opener Venkatesh Iyer has odds of 4.00 to be the top scorer as he scored a brilliant 50 in the previous match. 

KL Rahul and Quinton De Kock are the expected favourites from LSG to be the top scorers, with odds of 2.87 and 3.60 respectively. The versatile Manish Pandey is 6.00 to be LSG’s top scorer in this match.  

Highest Opening Partnership

Both these teams are equal favourites at 1.85 to have the highest opening partnership in this match. This is primarily because they both have two of the best opening pairs in Rahul and De Kock, and Iyer and Finch respectively, and they will be desperate to get off to a solid start. 

Top Team Bowler

Umesh Yadav has surprisingly emerged as KKR’s favourite to be the top bowler at 3.75 as he is the leading wicket-taker in the league so far, while leggie Varun Chakravarthy has odds of 4.00.

Former Delhi Capitals’ pacer Avesh Khan is the LSG favourite to be the top bowler, at 3.50. He is followed by Dushmanta Chameera at 3.75.

Total Runs In The Match

Odds of there being more than 341.5 runs in this match are 1.83, as per Bet365. This seems highly achievable as both these teams have some brilliant batsmen and have scored plenty of runs this season.

Individual Player Betting

  • Venkatesh Iyer to score more than 24.5 runs has odds of 1.87, which is a tempting bet as he would like to continue his current form and give KKR a top start. De Kock to score more than 23.5 runs also has odds of 1.83, which can be a smart bet as he is a consistent opener.
  • KKR to hit the most sixes has odds of 1.80, which are not great odds but they are deserved favourites with Russell back in form, along with Iyer, Rana, Cummins and Narine’s ability to clear the rope. LSG to hit the most sixes has odds of 1.90, which is understandable as they have several players who can clear the ropes. KL Rahul, De Kock, Jason Holder and Krunal Pandya all are known for their big hits
  • Umesh Yadav to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.40, while Chameera to take 2 or more wickets has odds of 2.25.
