Chennai Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 4, 2019

The top two teams face off in Chennai on Saturday and a win for either side will clearly increase their chances of a playoff place. We’re used to seeing CSK at the top of the table. Meanwhile, Kings XI are in a loftier position than their fans may have hoped. If you’re taking an IPL 2019 Satta on this one, form suggests it could be a tight contest. So what are our IPL tips for Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab.

What are the IPL tips for Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab?

Kings XI are at the top of the league table with a higher net run rate. However, it’s Chennai who lead the win market for Saturday’s game. The Super Kings are available at 1.66 with Betway, while 2.20 is being offered on a KXIP victory.

CSK should be looking to respond following that first defeat of the season against Mumbai on Wednesday. It was an uncharacteristic display by MS Dhoni’s men, summed up by Dwayne Bravo’s expensive last over. Kings look an impressive all-round package this season. And unlike last year, they should be able to sustain a good start and make it out of the groups. However, we’re backing Chennai to make an immediate improvement on that weak display against Mumbai.

Match Odds Summary: Chennai Super Kings 1.66 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Kings XI Punjab 2.20.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab?

Chennai’s batters have yet to really fire and while the side sits near the top, that will be a small concern right now. Their highest individual score to date is MS Dhoni’s undefeated 75 against Rajasthan. Therefore, we’re looking for a better all-round display here.

Against Kings XI, Shane Watson is the favourite to top score at 3.75 with Bet365. He is followed by Ambati Rayudu at 4.00. Suresh Raina is on offer at 4.33, and then we have two players at 5.00 – Faf Du Plessis and Murali Vijay.

Dhoni is always a man to consider and you can take the skipper in this game at 7.00. Meanwhile, Kedar Jadhav at 7.00 with Bet365, and Dwayne Bravo at 13.00, may also be worth a look.

For Kings XI Punjab, Chris Gayle sat out the previous game against Delhi. The team will subsequently start with a new favourite to top score on Saturday. KL Rahul is available at 3.60, while Gayle is listed at 3.75.

Betting on IPL markets for Kings’ top batsman now has another alternative with Sam Curran promoted up the order. The English international’s odds are set at at 6.00. Other options for KXIP include David Miller at 5.00, Mayank Agarwal at 5.00, and Nicholas Pooran at 7.00.

Chennai’s betting market looks tougher to call but for our IPL 2019 Satta, we’ll go with Suresh Raina here. Raina has still managed to pass a personal milestone, despite not being on top form. Nevertheless, he is due a big contribution.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Watson 3.75, Rayudu 4.00, Raina 4.33 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Du Plessis 5.00, Vijay 5.00, Dhoni 7.00, Jadhav 7.00, Bravo 13.00.

Kings XI Punjab: Rahul 3.60, Gayle 3.75, Miller 5.00, Agarwal 5.00, Curran 6.00, Pooran 7.00.

What are the most sixes IPL tips for Super Kings v Kings XI Punjab?

This betting review on IPL 12 has been a comprehensive one so far. Therefore, we’ll quickly finish with the Most Sixes betting. Kings XI may be outsiders to win the game, but they are favourites in this market at 1.90 with Betway. Presumably, that’s because the odds setters think Gayle will return and blast to all parts of the ground.

CSK at 2.25 with Betway are a value pick. Furthermore, the home side have the capacity to add a nice profit to the afternoon in case of an early dimissal of Gayle.

Most Sixes Odds Summary: Chennai Super Kings 2.25 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Kings XI Punjab 2.25, The Tie 7.50.
