Chennai Super Kings v Delhi Capitals: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on May 9, 2019

Chennai struggled on their own Chepauk surface and after a third defeat of the season at the hands of Mumbai, MS Dhoni’s men have to tackle Friday’s second qualifier. Meanwhile, CSK will face the Delhi Capitals, who overcame the Sunrisers in a last-over thriller. DC are now just one game away from their first-ever IPL final. But who do our IPL tips for Super Kings v Delhi Capitals favour?

Delhi have the momentum, while the Super Kings are rested following Tuesday’s loss.

What are the IPL tips for Super Kings v Delhi Capitals?

CSK were clear favourites when these teams met in the regular season. However, we have a relatively close market for Friday’s game. The Super Kings are still ahead at 1.80 with Betway, and while Delhi are very close at 1.90 in places, you can back the Capitals at 2.00 with Bet365.

Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi side showed just why they are so dangerous at this stage of the competition. Chasing Hyderabad’s 162, Prithvi Shaw made a solid start and then, when wickets fell, Rishabh Pant took over. Pant took 21 from Basil Thampi’s final over as the Capitals squeezed home and this is the threat to Chennai. The Super Kings’ bowlers, led by Imran Tahir, need to keep this batting unit quiet. It could go either way. Nevertheless, we’ve been backing a Chennai v Mumbai final, so we’ll stay with that prediction.

Match Odds Summary: Chennai Super Kings 1.80 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Delhi Capitals 2.00 (Bet365).

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Super Kings v Delhi Capitals?

Delhi have three batters in the top ten list of leading run scorers, while CSK have none. That’s a clue as to why we need Chennai’s bowlers to step up if our match tip is going to land. The batsmen need to play their part too and the Super Kings top run scorer market is led by Faf Du Plessis at 4.00 with Bet365.

Shane Watson is next at 4.50, followed by Suresh Raina at 4.75 and Murali Vijay at 5.00. Betting on top batsman IPL markets always involves considering the skipper and MS Dhoni is quoted at 6.50. Other CSK options include Ambati Rayudu at 5.50, and Kedar Jadhav at 10.00.

Moving on to Delhi, and we have Shikhar Dhawan as favourite at 3.40. It may seem that the left hander hasn’t quite exploded this year. Still, he is Delhi’s leading run scorer and fourth in the race for the Orange Cap.

There are three joint second favourites: Prithvi Shaw is at 4.50, while Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant are at 4.50. Outside Sattas for the Capitals include Colin Munro at 6.50 and Sherfane Rutherford at 15.00.

For our IPL 2019 Satta in this section, we’re looking at Rishabh Pant. We’re big fans and are puzzled as to why he’s not in India’s World Cup squad. After that 49 from 21 balls against SRH, Pant can kick on and make Delhi’s biggest contribution in this match.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Chennai Super Kings: Du Plessis 4.00, Watson 4.50, Raina 4.75, Vijay 5.00, Rayudu 5.50, Dhoni 6.50, Jadhav 10.00.

Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 3.40, Shaw 4.50, Iyer 4.50, Pant 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Munro 6.50, Rutherford 15.00.

What are the total runs in match IPL tips for Super Kings v Delhi Capitals?

Betting on IPL matches often means picking out your favourite markets and we’re going for total runs again. The reason is that the mark has been set low at 320.5, with the same odds of 1.83 to go over or under.

CSK experienced a low scoring game against Mumbai. But on Wednesday, at this same Visakhapatnam ground, Delhi and Hyderabad managed 327 between them. That may not indicate a high scoring surface. Nevertheless, we think these teams have enough batting depth to go comfortably over that 320.5 line.

Total Runs in Match Odds Summary: Over 320.5: 1.83 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Under 320.5: 1.83.
