Royal Challengers Bangalore will lock horns with Delhi Capitals in match number 19 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, in Dubai, on October 5, on Monday evening.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals have been two of the most promising sides of the Indian Premier League and it remains to be seen where they finish by the time the group stage ends. Virat Kohli seemed to have taken the right calls so far and the result is indicative of that fact so far. With three wins in four matches, Royal Challengers Bangalore are well and truly on course for that elusive final four spot. The story has been a little more convincing and similar for Delhi Daredevils as well and Shreyas Iyer too, has not disappointed as a skipper. In fact, he has surpassed quite a lot of expectations in this ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. The kind of IPL we are witnessing, every single encounter seems to be a mouth-watering clash and expect a lot of fireworks when these two sides will collide tomorrow at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. However, to add to the fun quotient, I have added three of the best team markets to this piece for you to bet on. Let's take a look at them one by one:
Royal Challengers Bangalore have been nothing but professional in this ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. They made quite a lot of changes to their management, staff and players and Virat Kohli and co. have come up clutch when it matters the most. Royal Challengers Bangalore were infamous for losing the initial games but they have turned it around and how. With three wins in four games, Royal Challengers Bangalore have set the pace for themselves and the stats are exactly the same for Delhi Capitals too in this current edition of the IPL. However, Delhi Capitals do not have a bright history against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League. Royal Challengers Bangalore have won 15 out of 23 head-to-head encounters against Delhi Capitals in the IPL. Virat Kohli and co. also have managed to emerge victorious in 13 out of the last 16 head-to-head encounters. With LeoVegas offering odds of 1.90 for a Royal Challengers Bangalore win, I am totally going all-in for this market.
We have already been witnessing crazy amounts of runs being scored in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League. Whether it is the Sheikh Zayed Stadium or the Dubai International Cricket Stadium (I am leaving the Sharjah Cricket Stadium out of this equation because bowlers would rather miss the bus for that venue), batsmen have managed to just pile up those runs at free will. More than 163 runs have been scored in six out of eight games at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in this season of the IPL. That 163-run mark has been breached 12 out of 18 matches in this ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. The average 1st innings total at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in this current season is 177.25. With two top teams coming into this clash and the wicket mostly favouring the batsman, the 163-run mark should be breached rather easily. Bet 365 is offering odds of 1.83 for the 1st innings total to be over 163.5 runs and this is an opportunity you should not let slip through your hands.
Just as I was telling you, a lot of runs have been scored in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League; we have also witnessed a number of individual brilliance from a number of batsmen. More than 66 runs have been scored by the batsmen 18 times in 18 matches at this ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. In the eight matches at the Dubai International Stadium, we have had five scores of more than 66 runs and one of them being a brilliant hundred from KL Rahul of Kings XI Punjab. In the last five head-to-head to encounters between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals, the 66-run mark has been breached by the batsmen four times. The batsmen have shown a lot of resilience in the middle and have tried to convert their starts into big scores and help their respective sides. LeoVegas is offering odds of 1.87 for the highest individual score to be over 66.5 runs and we are in for another treat on Monday evening.
