The best bets ahead of a swashbuckling set of IPL 2021 fixtures leading us into weekend.
It all starts with the Mumbai Indians hosting David Warner and his Sunrisers Hyderabad squad.
Mumbai Indians vs. Sunrisers Hyderabad
April 18th 12:00am
After getting their first win over the season out the way, the Mumbai Indians will seek to continue their winning momentum against the winless Sunrisers Hyderabad.
The defending 2020 champions sat in a precarious spot against the Kolata Knight Riders on Wednesday after being bowled out in 20 overs for 152 runs.
But the bowling would come the rescue as Rahul Chahar took home the man of match award with a brilliant four-wicket display to help the Indians to a 10-run victory.
The Sunrisers, however, have made a poor start to the season suffering back-to-back defeats despite David Warner returning to form with 54 runs against the Royal Challengers.
Mumbai should be able to make it two in a row here as it goes on its merry way towards another IPL crown.
– Mumbai Indians head to head at $1.63
– David Warner top batsman for Sunrisers at $3.20
– Trent Boult top bowler for Mumbai at $3.80
Royal Challengers Bangalore vs. Kolkata Knight Riders
April 18th 8:00pm
The Royal Challengers Bangalore will attempt to keep its winning start to IPL 2021 intact when it hosts the Kokata Knight Riders in Chennai.
The Challengers made it two from two after a Glenn Maxwell 59-run man of match performance guided them to a narrow six-run win against Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Meanwhile, the Knight Riders failed to chase down the 152-run target set by the 2020 champion Mumbai in their latest fixture to go down by 10 runs.
Aussie paceman Pat Cummins took two wickets for 24 runs but was outshone by Andre Russell who poached a ‘five-fa’ to end up with figures of 5/15 off only two overs.
Tough game this one.
Going to side with the Knight Riders who look good value in what looks to be a flip of the coin match.
Suggested Bets: Kolkata Knight Riders head to head at $2.09
