Who wins the IPL 2021 depends a lot on the quality of players these teams have got. Some players have the ability to play big innings or pick wickets in the death overs, but in a league where every team has got 14 matches, consistency, bench strength and variety are the key factors in a team’s chances of winning the title.

Our cricket experts follow every action that unfolds in the Indian Premier League 2021 and analyze different aspects of the game – strike rates in different phases of the innings, death overs bowling, reliable middle-order, finishers, and a lot more – to find what lies at the core of a match-winning team, player, or performance.

IPL Schedule 2021

The schedule for the 2021 IPL has now been released with the tournament to commence on 9th April with the final to be played on 30th May.

The IPL is back for the 14th edition in 2021 after what feels like only a short break since the 2020 version hosted in UAE. The good news is the tournament is retuirning home to India  with the following venues hosting matches; Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai & Kolkata.

The BCCI is confident that the tournament can go ahead in regards to the health and safety of players and all other people involved. The format of IPL remains the same – double round-robin followed by a knockout stage.

IPL Match Schedule Format

There will be a total of 56 matches in the league stage with each team playing 14 matches. Following that, the top 4 placed team will qualify for the knockout stage where the top 2 teams will play each other in the Qualifier 1.

Whereas, the teams finishing 3rd and 4th in the points table will battle it out in the Eliminator.

The Qualifier 2 will be played between the team winning the Eliminator and the losing team of Qualifier 1.

The winners of Qualifier 1 and 2 will meet each other in the Final in May 2021.

IPL Betting Tips 2021

IPL 2021 will be long with a number of matches. In such a league, a bettor needs to chalk a long-term plan and not aim for big winnings by staking big money in a single match.

Here we analyse some of the most popular pre-match betting markets and discuss their profitability, and how to approach them during IPL.

Consider these betting markets popular across all top bookmakers in India –

  • Top home team batsman
  • Top away team batsman
  • Top home team bowler
  • Top away team bowler

These markets offer odds of 3.00 and above in most of the cases. If Royal Challengers Bangalore is playing, then, the betting odds for Virat Kohli in the team top batsman market may be below 3.00.

  • There are many instances when the top scorer for a team is a middle-order or lower-order batsman.
  • The betting odds for players in the top team batsman market increase as their batting position goes down.
  • For example, if opening batsman Rohit Sharma has odds of 3.00 to be team top batsman for Mumbai Indians, Kieron Pollard who bats lower down the order will likely have odds of 6.00 and above.

Betting on a middle order batsman (number 4 or 5) in the top team batsman market will give higher returns

Hence, this market is likely to turn profitable over time as the league progresses.

While predicting who will score a fifty in the next match may not be an easy task for any bettor, the To Score 50+ Runs betting market offers great odds.

Another betting market where predicting the outcome is relatively easy is the To Hit A Six betting market.

  • Here you can choose the individual players who you think will hit a six in the match. The odds for these players will mostly depend on their form and ability.
  • The big hitting batsmen in these markets will have odds of under 1.80. However, this also depends on the bowling strength of the opposition.

IPL teams pack powerful batting line-ups with big hitters like David Miller, Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and many more. Predicting which of these batsmen will hit a six and getting 60% and above returns on your stake seems a good opportunity.

First Ball Of The Match

Opening batsmen in IPL tend to adapt their approach depending on the match situation, the pitch conditions, and the bowler. While the chances of the first ball of the match being a dot are quite high, if the batsman scores a single you stand to win Rs.400 on your Rs.100 bet.

  • In the First Ball Of The Match betting market, the odds for a Dot Ball are 1.61 while those for a Single are 4.00.
  • A four (off the bat) offers betting odds of 7.50 in this market.
  • The likeliness of winning a bet on Single or the Four betting option in every game is low, however, over time, there is a possibility of eventually making a profit if the stakes are placed correctly.
