The 2021 IPL continues to get very interesting as the IPL teams battle it out to make the playoffs. Delhi Chargers (DC) sit comfortably on 16 points at the top of the IPL points table and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are in second place with 14 points.
Since IPL franchises need 16 points to qualify, DC has already made it and CSK need just one more win from 5 games to qualify. The real battle will be for the final two playoff spots and we have four teams who are closely contesting for those four sports.

RCB vs. MI T20 – Sep 26
RCB currently sits in third place with 10 points while MI is on 8 points. Bet365 has the defending champions MI as the favorites with odds of 1.72 while RCB are the underdogs with odds of 2.10.
This is going to be a high pressured match for both teams. RCB has not had a good start to their UAE campaign and knows that a win over the defending champs will not only give them momentum and confidence but it will also push them 2 points closer to qualifying for the playoffs.
Mumbai has not looked like a champion side during the first part of the IPL in India and also during their first outing in the UAE against CSK which they lost. Mumbai needs a big win over RCB if they are going to bounce back or they could find themselves struggling to make the playoffs in 2021.
This clash will also see a battle between the two captains Virat Kohli and R Sharma. Kohli just stepped down as the Indian T20 captain and reports suggest that R Sharma will replace him. One of the reasons why Sharma is getting the push is because he has done so well leading the Mumbai Indians to five IPL championships.
Kohli will not only want to perform with the bat but he will want to win this game and send a message to his critics and the Mumbai Indians. We are going to pick RCB to win this game!
SRH vs. RR T20 – Sep 27
Sunrisers Hyderabad has had a very forgettable 2021 IPL having lost 8 out of the 9 games they have played so far. They sit at the bottom of the points table with just 2 points and know that they are not going to make the playoffs this year. SRH needs to play for pride and their players need to put their hands up and be counted.
The Royals are in with a chance of making the playoffs and a win over SRH will give them 2 vital points. The Royals are without some of their biggest overseas players and will depend heavily on their Indian players. Captain Sanju Samson has a great opportunity to step up and lead from the front with the bat. The biggest threat for the Royals will be David Warner, R Khan and J Holder.
The biggest weakness for SRH has been the form of D Warner. His form cost him the captaincy during the 2021 IPL but his replacement Kane Williamson has also struggled. This is why Bet365 has the Royals as betting favorites with odds of 1.72 while SRH is the underdogs with odds of 2.10.
We are going to back the Royals to win this game as SRH has too many internal problems that are impacting their performance.
