Empty stadium IPL

Due to the Coronavirus situation, almost the entire nation is on lockdown and the sporting actions have all been postponed including the Indian Premier League (IPL). Now that the IPL has been postponed until April 15, 2020, we being the aficionados can do nothing but wait. But once the wait is over, Delhi Capitals will lock horns with Kings XI Punjab in match number two of the Indian Premier League in Delhi, this year. Earlier, we knew that the IPL was going to kickstart on March 29 and the excitement levels were naturally going through the roofs. And this encounter was supposed to take place on March 30 and now we are not sure when will it actually happen. But when it happens, one can be rest assured that we will be in for an enthralling battle. In addition to that, the scenario of money-making also arrives as I feel that it is important for both of us. In order to do so, I have accumulated three of the best team bets from the game to bet on. Let’s take a closer look at them, shall we?

Kings XI Punjab to have the last laugh

We have witnessed some scintillating encounters in the past when Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab have locked horns in the previous seasons of the Indian Premier League. Yet again these two sides will collide in the upcoming season of the IPL and trust me when I say this, it looks like Kings XI Punjab will have the upper hand by the end of this fixture. Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Capitals have clashed 24 times in the past and the former have got the better off the latter on 14 occasions. In the last seven head to head encounters, Kings XI Punjab have won on seven occasions. Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab have locked horns on 11 occasions at the Arun Jaitley Stadium and the former has won on six occasions but what’s more surprising here - the latter has won on five occasions as well. Therefore, it is not like that the Capitals will be walking into this fixture with an upper hand. The two teams are heavily stacked up with unbelievable talents but it seems the men in red and grey from Punjab will have the last laugh when they meet for the first time in the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League.

Bet on Kings XI Punjab to win @ odds 2.28 or higher!

Total number of sixes in the match will not touch 13

There are a number of six hitters in both squads who love to flex their muscles when it comes to playing in this particular format of the game. But somehow I believe that the total number of sixes in the match will not go beyond 12 and I have enough reasons to substantiate and back my statement. As you know, Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab have played 11 matches at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, and in only two occasions, the two teams have managed to hit more than 12 sixes. Shocking isn’t it? Despite having such firepower in respective sides, they have failed to hit over 12 sixes in nine out of 11 occasions. In 24 occasions, Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab could hit over 12 sixes in only four occasions and quite obviously, they have failed to achieve that feat in 20 other occasions. The numbers are suggestive of the fact that Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab cannot hit more than 12 sixes in the game and therefore it makes this market a pretty safe one to bet on.

Bet on under 12.5 sixes @ odds 2.00 or higher!

In 24 meetings, Kings XI Punjab have clobbered 108 sixes, which is more than four sixes on an average per game!
