Royal Challengers Bangalore v Mumbai Indians: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on March 26, 2019

Two winless sides assemble at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on Thursday in the latest installment of IPL 12. And both will be anxious to get some points on the board. RCB’s dismal performance on an admittedly poor Chepauk pitch was particularly worrying while Mumbai also lost – this time to outsiders the Delhi Capitals. It’s all to play for in Bengaluru,. But who do our IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Mumbai Indians favour?

What are the IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Mumbai Indians?

The bookmakers just can’t split these two and both teams carry the same win odds. Mumbai Indians are available at 1.90. Meanwhile, Betway have that same figure of 1.90 listed against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

We know that Mumbai have a curious ability to start a tournament slowly, even though they will always field a strong side. Then we have RCB, who were poor against Chennai. But how much of that display was down to the surface in Chepauk? This is the tightest call so far. But perhaps, if there is any home advantage in T20 cricket, the Royal Challengers will harness it to tip the odds in their favour.

Match Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1.90 (Betway – Editor’s Pick) Mumbai Indians 1.90.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Mumbai Indians?

If that match prediction is to come true, then Bangalore’s batters really need to fire. Bowling is their weaker options, so we’re looking at Kohli, De Villiers, Parthiv Patel and the rest. In RCB’s top batsman market, Virat Kohli is the obvious favourite at 3.25 with Bet365. The skipper is followed by AB De Villiers at 4.50.

Parthiv Patel did his best to steady things against CSK and he will attract some interest here at 5.00. Other Bangalore options include Moeen Ali at that same 5.00, Shimron Hetmyer at 7.50, and Milind Kumar at 7.50.

For Mumbai Indians, Yuvraj Singh was, perhaps, an unlikely top scorer with 53 from 35 balls against Delhi. Yuvi remains a threat and can be backed to top score against RCB at 6.50.

The favourite in this Mumbai Indians market is Rohit Sharma at 3.75. He is followed by Quinton De Kock at 4.00, and Evin Lewis at 4.25. Your winner may well come from those three. When betting on IPL 2019 markets for Mumbai, however, we should also consider Suryakumar Yadav at 4.33. Also worth considering is Ishan Kishan at 5.00 and Kieron Pollard at 6.50.

When Virat Kohli plays, he will always carry a short price and he will often deliver. Still, when taking an IPL 2019 Satta, that leaves value odds on the other batters. In this case, the 4.50 next to the name of AB De Villiers is an excellent figure and we’re backing the big hitting South African to make a major contribution.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore: Kohli 3.25, De Villiers 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Patel 5.00, Ali 5.00, Hetmyer 7.50, Kumar 7.50.

Mumbai Indians: Rohit 3.75, De Kock 4.00, Lewis 4.25, Yadav 4.33, Kishan 5.00, Pollard 6.50.

What are the most sixes IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Mumbai Indians?

Batting has been the focal point of this preview so far and for our last IPL 2019 Satta on this game, we’ll switch to most maximums. Mumbai Indians are the favourites at 1.90. Meanwhile, RCB are our pick at 2.30. The tie is also a tempter at 8.00.

If we’re backing the Royal Challengers to win this game, then their batters just have to fire and power over the ropes at every opportunity. Kohli and De Villiers may be our best hopes in this market, but 2.30 is an excellent price.
