Rajasthan Royals will go head on with Royal Challengers Bangalore in match number 33 of the Indian Premier League 2020 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, in Dubai, on October 17, on Saturday afternoon.
Rajasthan Royals, led by Steve Smith, cannot afford a slip up at this moment or else everything could go downhill from here. Royal Challengers Bangalore, on the other hand, are on 10 points and need to win three games out their remaining six to make it to the final four. There is one thing that is common between these two teams - both Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore are coming into this fixture on the back of individual losses. A game of high intensity can be expected as two of the best cricketers in the world will collide on a warm Saturday afternoon in Dubai. To make things cooler on a sultry afternoon with high octane cricket, I have gathered three of the best team bets for you to bet on.
Things are getting really interesting in this 13th edition of the Indian Premier League as the midfield battle is getting tighter on the points table. But here we are going to focus on the battle of fours between the Men in Pink and the Men in Red and Gold. In the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League, Rajasthan Royals have managed to hit 81 fours while Royal Challengers Bangalore smashed 97 of them. In the last three head to head matches, Royal Challengers Bangalore have 40 fours against their name and, on the other hand, Rajasthan Royals have only 29 hits to their name. The last time when these two sides went head on against each other, Royal Challengers Bangalore yet again got the upper hand with 16 boundaries and Rajasthan Royals could only add 9 fours to their tally. LeoVegas is offering odds of 1.87 for Royal Challengers Bangalore to hit more fours against Rajasthan Royals.
Sixes and IPL 2020 will go hand-in-hand if one asks me about big hits in a T20 tournament! Batsmen from almost all the franchises in this ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League have been hitting those sixes at free will irrespective of the venue dimensions. A total of 419 sixes have been hit already in 31 games in the Indian Premier League 2020 edition at an average of 13.51 hits per game. Out of which 190 sixes have been clattered at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in 14 games at an average of 13.57 hits per game. Moreover, 68 sixes have been hit at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium in the last five matches at an average of 13.6 hits per game. As you can see, all these scenarios are working in our favour and it should be an easy victory for us tomorrow afternoon when Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore will take the field. Sportsbet.io is offering odds of 1.92 for total sixes hit in the game will be over 12.5 and considering the number of big hitters on either sides, it should be rather easy.
Runs have been piled on in this ongoing season of the Indian Premier League and it has been easy to come by. It is because of the wickets which has mostly favoured the batters in IPL 2020, however, the bowlers are slowly making their way back into their grooves as the wickets are getting slower and lower and drier as the tournament is approaching the business end. But that has not affected the creme-de-la-creme batsmen of all the IPL franchises to put a tap on their individual run flows. 26 scores of more than 68 runs have been registered in the IPL 2020 edition in just 31* games (updated till RCB vs KXIP match). Dubai International Cricket Stadium has hosted 14 games and in them, 8 scores of 68 and more have been registered. In the last 5 head to head encounters between Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bangalore, three scores of 68 and more have been registered. LeoVegas is offering fine odds of 1.87 for the highest individual score to be over 67.5 runs and the statistics I just mentioned are in favour of that.
