Mumbai Indians will lock horns with Rajasthan Royals at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, this Tuesday evening. While Rohit Sharma and Co will be more than confident to claim the bragging rights, Rajasthan Royals will play out of their skins, especially after losing the last couple of matches. Either way, we are assured of a great match this week, and there’s no way you should miss the action.
To make the evening more memorable, I have already handpicked the top three deals for you from the betting market and listed them below. Just go through my analysis and invest strategically to win loads of money.
It is really disheartening to believe that the opening pair of Rohit Sharma and Quinton de Kock would not be able to put on just 25 runs before the fall of the first wicket,k but that has been the trend this season, with their opening stands reading - 46, 8, 14, 0, 6, amassing a total of 74 runs, at a rate of 14.8 runs per innings before the fall of the first wicket, with them stitching up more than 24 runs in just one match. Now, that is disappointing for players of their calibre!
Even though Rohit Sharma averages 35.20 runs per innings, which is not ordinary by any standards, Quinton de Kock, on the other hand, has scored just 115 runs in five matches, at a rate of 23.00 runs per innings. Moreover, In the past four H2H matches between these two sides, only twice have the Mumbai Indiansopeners registered a partnership of more than 24 runs. In the past two matches at the venue, the opening stands were - 0 and 8. What are you waiting for? Just place your bets.
This is by far one of the safest bets in the market and with odds of 1.72 on offer, there is no way we can ignore this one. In the past four matches, Rajasthan Royals have hit a total of 51 sixes, at a rate of 12.75 hits per match, having struck more than four in each of the above-mentioned matches. Rajasthan Royals will have the services of Sanju Samson, the highest six-hitter in the season so far, with 16 strikes in four matches, while Rahul Tewatia is also not far behind, with 11 hits in as many matches.
In the last five H2H matches between these two sides, Rajasthan Royals have hit a total of 27 sixes, at a rate of 5.4 per innings, having struck at least five in three of those matches. On the flip side, Mumbai Indians have conceded a total of 32 sixes in five matches this season, shipping in at a rate of 6.4 hit per innings, having let in at least five in four of those matches. Having played three matches at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, this season, the team has conceded 15 sixes, at a rate of five per innings. I hope you have placed your bets by now.
In terms of hitting boundaries, Mumbai Indians does it better than any other team, with Rohit Sharma and Co already hitting a total of 66 boundaries in five matches, at a rate of 13.2 hits per match, having been outnumbered in just two of those matches. On the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have hit a total of 36 boundaries, averaging nine matches per match, which is well below par, compared to what Mumbai Indians have achieved so far.
Rajasthan Royals have played four matches in the 2020 Indian Premier League so far, having hit a total of 57 boundaries, averaging 14.25 per match, with them never hitting more than their opponents in each of those games. The Royals have played just one match at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium, in Abu Dhabi, with the hitting just 9 boundaries and conceding 16 in the same. With superior batting quality at their disposal, Mumbai Indians are likely to bring us money by the end of the match.
