PBKS vs RR Match 52 Predictions & Betting Tips

Punjab Kings will go up against Rajasthan Royals in the match number 52 of the TATA Indian Premier League 2022. This will be the first double header fixture of the Super Sunday which is to be hosted at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The match is scheduled to commence from 3:30 PM IST on May 7, Sunday. I have gathered three of the top betting tips from the PBKS vs RR match prediction ahead of the match day for you.

Rajasthan Royals have done a tad better than their opponent, Punjab Kings so far this season. The Sanju Samson led side won six of their first eight fixtures but have now shockingly lost two back-to-back matches because of which they are sitting at the third spot in the standings. The Royals have relied on the cumulative effort of their batting and bowling unit to turn it around for themselves. The Mayank Agarwal led side on the other hand are stationed at the fifth spot in the ladder with five solitary victories and as many losses from ten fixtures. Unlike RR, PBKS will be joining this fixture on the back of a solid 8 wicket victory with four overs to spare against league leaders, Gujarat Titans. This will be a massive boost for a side that has failed to stretch its winning streak. As the team's gear up for their first face off this season, let us have a look at the top money making betting tips from the PBKS vs RR head-to-head contest.

PBKS vs RR Team Bets:

Out of the tons of bets available, I have handpicked two of the best team betting tips for a lucrative return from the PBKS vs RR match prediction.

Punjab Kings To Score Under 23.5 Runs Before 1st Dismissal

Punjab Kings have struggled to gather runs from their opening partnership and the story remained the same when they faced table toppers Gujarat Titans yesterday. Skipper Mayank Agarwal decided to replace himself with Englishman Jonny Bairstow in PBKS latest outing. However, the gamble did not work the men in red as the duo of S Dhawan and Bairstow stitched a 10 run partnership before Bairstow fell victim to Shami. In the first nine games, it was M Agarwal and S Dhawan who opened the innings for PBKS. So far this season, PBKS have aggregated just 252 runs from 10 games for the first wicket which takes their average to an abysmal 25.2 runs per match. The average is merely above our desired target making it a non reliable one. Furthermore, PBKS have posted scores of 13, 4, 2, 11, 97, 10, 33, 37, 35 & 10 runs before the fall of the first wicket. This entails 60% efficiency of PBKS to pull off an opening partnership under our target, thus making it a strong betting tip. Moreover, the Royals bowlers including the likes of P Krishna, Y Chahal and T Boult will not make it any easier for the PBKS to score runs before the fall of the 1st wicket. Additionally, the teams that have faced RR this season have averaged 16.1 runs before the fall of the first wicket. Two out of 10 times, RR have leaked runs over our desired target before picking up the first wicket. This weighs perfectly in favour of this betting tip. This bet is a no-brainer as the stats clearly work in favour of this betting tip. Head over to Pari Match and place your bet on PBKS to score under 23.5 runs before the fall of 1st wicket from the PBKS vs RR match prediction.

Rajasthan Royals To Score Over 8.5 Sixes

A total of 379 sixes have been hit in the 2022 edition of Indian Premier League of which the Royals have alone hit 92 of them. RR have sent the ball over the fence maximum number of times this record. They possess a powerhouse of big hitters including the likes of opener Jos Buttler, Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmeyer and a lot others who are capable of doing that quite easily. The Royals have averaged 9.2 sixes per game from 10 matches which is certainly above our desired target. They posted 7, 8, 14, 10, 7, 10, 11, 11, 14 sixes thus far this season. This entails 60% efficiency of RR to score above our desired target of sixes in this game. The Royals posted 8, 11, 10, 18, 5 sixes in their last five head-to-head matches in the IPL. This signifies that they have scored above our defined target three out of five times thus making it a strong and a reliable betting tip. Orange cap holder Jos Buttler has alone hit 36 sixes this season followed by Sanju Samon (21) and Shimron Hetmeyer(19). Pari Match has offered odds of 2.12 in RR’s favour to score over 8.5 sixes from the PBKS vs RR match prediction.
