Mumbai Indians will take on Delhi Capitals in match number 20 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, on October 6, on Tuesday evening.
Mumbai Indians are on a roll and they will look to clinch their fourth win of the season and with that, they will dethrone Delhi Capitals and once again claim the top spot on that points table. Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, have not been able to find their rhythm and as of now, it has been a hot and cold start to their campaign. While we wait in anticipation for this mouth-watering encounter, let me take you through three of the best team markets to bet on from this game:
Sixes have been the order of the day every time these sides take the field in this ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. A total of 277 sixes have already been registered in 19 matches so far in this ongoing edition of the IPL and that is an average of 14.57 hits per match, which is also way above what we are looking for here. At the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi, 66 sixes have been smashed in just 6 matches and that is an average of 11 sixes per game. It's okay for one of the stats to go south but don't worry, I have got this! Both Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals have collectively clobbered 104 sixes in 9 matches so far in this IPL and that is an average of 11.55 sixes per match. In the last couple of head-to-head matches between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals, 27 sixes have been hit, which is an average of 13.5 sixes per match. LeoVegas is offering odds of 1.95 for total match sixes to be at least 12 on Tuesday evening at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. I think you should go for it!
Just like the sixes, the run flow too, has been quite staggering in this 13th edition of the Indian Premier League, which is being hosted behind closed doors in the United Arab Emirates. The IPL 2020 has been quite fascinating in so many aspects but here in this section we are going to take a closer look at the 1st innings totals. The Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi had an average 1st innings total of 153.0 in T20 cricket before the start of the IPL and I am quite sure that number has gone up. The average 1st innings total here at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in the Indian Premier League 2020 season has been 167.66. Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi has witnessed two scores of more than 163 runs in this edition of the IPL. The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League has registered 13 scores of more than 163 runs in 19 games so far. The last time Mumbai Indians played at this venue, they registered a first innings total of 191/4 in their allotted 20 overs. Bet 365 is offering odds of 1.61 for the first innings total to be over 163.5 runs and it should be an easy win for us.
Coming back to the number of sixes being hit in the tournament - it is really incredible to see these set of players clearing those boundary ropes with relative ease. But for now, we will zero down our focus on Mumbai Indians, who have managed to smash 53 sixes in their 5 games so far and that is an average of almost 11 sixes per game, which is way more than what we require. The last time they played at this venue, in Abu Dhabi, Rohit Sharma and co. clobbered 10 sixes in their innings. In three matches at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Mumbai Indians have managed to clatter 23 sixes, which is an average of 7.66 hits per game. In the last couple of head-to-head clashes against Rajasthan Royals, Mumbai Indians have managed to smash 15 sixes, which again fulfils our required landmark. LeoVegas is offering odds of 1.72 for Mumbai Indians to hit over 5.5 sixes against Rajasthan Royals on Tuesday evening and the kind of big hitters they possess in their ranks, achieving the required number of six hits should not be a problem at all.
