IPL Prop Betting Guide
In IPL prop betting, you can wager on more unique aspects of the match instead of the usual online IPL betting, which focuses more on IPL match predictions and future league champions. Cricket prop bets are unique and may not have any direct relation to, or impact on, the outcome of the match.
Check out the different types of props that will be most profitable for you during IPL 2021 and place your wagers at the best cricket betting websites.
IPL 2021 is currently on pause in India due to an increase of COVID-19 cases, however, it will now restart on September 19 in the UAE.
What IPL Prop Bets Can I Place?
In cricket satta, you can place prop bets on the winner of the pre-match coin toss, man of the match, total runs scored or other aspects of individual IPL matches and the performance of individual teams.
The most popular props to consider are:
To Win The Toss
You can wager on which captain will win the toss before the start of the match. This is not about the outcome of the match, not about the winner or loser.
Top Team Batsman
You can bet on who will be the top scorer for any team in the match. You can also bet on the number of runs a particular player will score in a match.
Top Team Bowler
Similar to betting on the top scorer in a match, you can also bet on the top bowler in a match. This type of wager focuses on who will take the maximum wickets.
Man Of The Match
A Man of the Match award is given at the end of every IPL match. This player is generally the one who plays the most important role in taking his team to victory. You can bet on who you think will be named Man of the Match all season long.
Highest Opening Partnership
Which IPL side will score the most runs before the first wicket falls? With this type of bet, you must pick which team will accomplish this feat.
Total Runs in a Match
This is an over/under bet, which means a bookmaker will set a total for the number of runs that could be scored in a match. You will bet on whether the total score for the match will be over or under the number set by the bookmaker.
1st Innings Total Runs
The 1st Inning Total Runs prop is another over/under bet, in which you can wager on how many runs will be scored in the first innings of the match.
1st Over Team Runs
A similar concept to the 1st Innings Total Runs, the 1st Over Team Runs prop bet is about the number of runs a team will score in the first six balls of an innings. This betting rate focuses on each team separately.
Most Run Outs
Place your prop bet on which team will have the most run-outs in a match.
A Fifty Scored In A Match
The Fifty Scored in a Match prop wager is a yes or no bet on whether you think a fifty will be scored in the match.
A Hundred To Be Scored In A Match
Again, this is another yes or no bet. You can wager on whether a hundred will be scored during the selected match.
Most Match Sixes
For Most Match Sixes, this IPL betting prop is based on which team you think will hit the maximum number of sixes in a match.
Total Match Sixes
Total Match Sixes is an over/under prop bet on how many sixes you think will be hit during any given match.
1st Wicket Method
The 1st Wicket Method is a bet based on how the first wicket will fall. There are usually six options to bet on: “Caught,” “Run Out,” “Bowled,” “Stumped,” “LBW (Leg Before Wicket),” and “Others”.
Fall of First Wicket
The Fall of First Wicket prop bet is for how many runs the batting team will score before the fall of the first wicket.

Tips To Follow While Placing Prop Bets in IPL 2021
Now that you understand the different types of cricket prop bets, let’s take a look at some of the best bets for IPL 2021 prop betting.
Mumbai Indians emerge as the strongest team in the IPL betting market as favorites to capture the IPL Cup in 2021 under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. They won the IPL trophy back to back.
Rohit Sharma will be the best bet for Mumbai props at IPL 2021. He has the temperament to stay calm in tense moments and can open bat along with South African ace Quinton de Kock, the third-highest run-getter for Mumbai last season with 529 runs in 16 matches.
Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan are also effective batsmen in the top order. Mumbai can always bank on world-class all-rounders Hardik Pandya (strike rate 191.42 last season) and Kieron Pollard (strike rate 156.74). They can take any bowling attack to the cleaners.
Chennai Super Kings
Chennai Super Kings, the most consistent team with three titles and eight finals appearances, are also a strong contender for the title. MS Dhoni’s team did not quite match the expectations in IPL 2020 but you can expect a strong comeback.
The Super Kings are the sentimental favorites after their skipper MS Dhoni – also the most successful captain for Team India – and Suresh Raina, the leading run-scorer for Chennai, called it quits from international cricket. The pair will play in the IPL this year and will be exciting options for Man of the Match and other prop betting markets throughout the season.
Sunrisers Hyderabad look strong with explosive batsmen David Warner as their captain, plus Jonny Bairstow and Kane Williamson as their other top-order batsmen. Hyderabad won their only title in 2016 under Warner’s captaincy and have some strong options in the IPL props satta market for 2021.
Hyderabad captain Warner scored the most runs (692 runs in 12 matches) in IPL 2019 and will be looking to replicate some of that form again on the Indian soil in IPL 2021. He and Bairstow form a lethal partnership as openers. Bairstow, the English wicketkeeper-batsman, scored 445 runs in 10 matches last year.
Pacers Khaleel Ahmad, who took 19 wickets in nine matches in the season, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, will lead the pace attack and represent reliable options for prop bets. The Afghan duo of Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi are reliable spinners, but Hyderabad need to be smart in their choices with more foreigners on the team than some of the other clubs.
If Mumbai and Chennai are the tournament’s best bets, Delhi Capitals can’t be taken lightly. After having lackluster showings for six consecutive seasons, the Capitals made it to the finals in IPL 2020 which they lost to Mumbai Indians.
Delhi’s forte is their strong batting lineup that can provide high value throughout IPL 2021 prop betting. Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, and Prithvi Shaw should compete for Man of the Match on a few occasions.
Kagiso Rabada and Ishant Sharma are a great combination to open with pace bowling.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
The once-feared Royal Challengers Bangalore have failed to win a single IPL trophy to date, despite having the likes of Virat Kohli & AB de Villiers on their side. They performed well last season and Virat Kohli’s men can surprise a few eyebrows this season.
Bangalore’s batting is strong, but bowling has been a letdown in recent years. Sensing the situation, Kohli has worked on acquiring quality bowlers during the auction.
Yuzvendra Chahal was the leading wicket-taker for the Royal Challengers last season. He will lead spin bowling in IPL 2021 as well. Bangalore can go the distance if their top-order performs well consistently, but there will be some better options available in IPL prop satta markets.
