Mumbai Indians will take on Kings XI Punjab in match number 36 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, in Dubai, on October 18, on Sunday evening.
Mumbai Indians have been on a roll as they have now won five matches in a row and are in need of just two wins to settle themselves in the playoffs. Kings XI Punjab, on the other hand, have to win all their remaining games in order to give themselves a chance to still make it to that playoff stage. With the Universe Boss back in the heat of things, Kings XI Punjab all of a sudden looks like a dangerous squad. We are in for one hell of an encounter and you can be rest assured. However, to spice things up a bit, I have included few of the best team markets for you to bet on from this match.
Mumbai Indians have managed to kickstart their IPL 2020 campaign on a breathtaking note and they have not let that momentum slip through their hands. They are on a rampaging mode and these Mumbai Indians players are hungry for more as every single time they walk out in the middle, they look like they want nothing but a win. The two sides have collided on 25 occasions in the past and Mumbai Indians have emerged victorious 14 times leaving 11 wins for Kings XI Punjab. In the last 16 head-to-head matches between the two sides, Mumbai Indians have won 11 times and that kind of shows the supremacy. The last time these two sides met earlier this season Mumbai Indians got the better off Kings XI Punjab by 48 runs. Mumbai Indians have won 6 out of their 8 games so far and, on the other hand, Kings XI Punjab have just won 2 out of their 8. As you can see, all of the scenarios are working in our favour and there is no way we can lose this bet. Sportsbet.io is offering odds of 1.63 for a Mumbai Indians victory and I am going for it!
Mumbai Indians are not only winning their games at free will but they are also getting their noses ahead in these mini encounters as well. As I have already mentioned in my earlier pieces, Mumbai Indians are an extremely dangerous side, who have a lot of firepower in their ranks. Therefore hitting sixes becomes way too easy for these Men in Blue and Gold! In the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians have managed to send the ball over the boundary ropes 72 times in 8 matches and Kings XI Punjab have done it only 54 times. In the previous season of the Indian Premier League, Mumbai Indians clobbered 115 sixes while Kings XI Punjab could manage 106 of them. Mumbai Indians smashed 10 sixes in the previous head-to-head encounter earlier this season and Kings XI Punjab could only hit 3 of them. Therefore you can see the statistics are clearly working in our favour and therefore head over to the LeoVegas website, which is offering odds of 2.05 for Mumbai Indians to hit more sixes in the match, and place your bets.
IPL 2020 have been nothing but sixes galore as the batsmen have found it rather easy to clear those massive boundaries with consummate ease. So when I am telling you that there will be at least 12 sixes hit at this venue, then I think you need to consider that quickly and do the needful. But before you place your bets, go through my brief analysis - a total of 429 sixes have been smashed in the IPL 2020 in 32 games at an average of 13.40 hits per game. A total of 68 sixes have been smashed at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the last five encounters at an average of 13.6 sixes per match. A total of 190 sixes have been smashed in 14 games at this venue at an average of 13.57 sixes per game. The numbers I just mentioned are clearly working our favour and it should be an easy task for these power hitters from both Mumbai Indians and Kings XI Punjab.
