Betting Tips for CSK vs RCB, Match 19, IPL 2021

Sunday, 25th April, promises to be an exciting day of T20 cricket as Chennai Super Kings take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai. Head-to-head, CSK has the upperhand with 16 wins from 26 matches against RCB.

Match Winner – RCB start as favorites

However, the current form of RCB with both bat and ball makes them favourites with odds of 1.66 in the Match Winner market at Betway.

The 3-time title winners, Chennai Super Kings are off to a good start with 3 wins in 4 games. The batting has been exceptional from CSK. Their pacers have also made a mark with Deepak Chahar being 3rd highest wicket-taker in the season.

While Ruturaj Gaikwad has found his form and looked very confident in his stroke-making against KKR, there is still uncertainty looming in the middle-order. Without a big inning from Faf du Plessis, the chances of CSK ending up with a competitive total are bleak.

And given RCB’s batting form, anything below 190-200 will not be enough to defend at this ground. Whereas, chasing a big total against a hungry RCB bowling attack will also be quite challenging. As a result, the bookmaker indicates a 44.44% win probability for CSK with odds of 2.25.

Betting Tips

  • The seamers have done quite well on these batting-friendly pitches at Wankhede. Deepak Chahar has bagged two 4-fers here while Harshal Patel, who mostly bowls in the death overs, picked 3 wickets in his last game at Wankhede.
  • The betting market, Player to Take 2+ wickets offers 2.00 odds for Deepak Chahar and 2.25 for Harshal Patel.
  • Faf du Plessis has hit 4, 2, and 1 sixes in his last 3 innings respectively. As a result, at 1.65 odds, Faf du Plessis is a good bet in the ‘To Hit A Six’ market.
