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 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 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.
Best Prop Bets For IPL 2020
Now that you understand the different types of cricket prop bets, let’s take a look at some of the best bets for IPL 2020 prop betting.
Mumbai Indians Prop Betting
Mumbai Indians emerge as the strongest team in the IPL betting market as favourites to capture the IPL Cup in 2020 under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma. The team beat Chennai last year to win their record fourth title. They have the capability to give an encore after also winning the trophy in 2013, ’15 and ’17.
Rohit Sharma will be the best bet for Mumbai props at IPL 2020. 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. Sri Lankan stalwart Lasith Malinga, the highest wicket-taker in IPL history, can still be a lethal bowler in the first few overs. It was his last-ball thriller in the 2019 IPL final that helped Mumbai clinch the title by one run. He will have the company of another pacer Jasprit Bumrah – the best bowler for Mumbai last year with 19 wickets in 16 matches.
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 Prop Betting
Chennai, the most consistent team with three titles and eight finals appearances, are also a strong contender for the title.
The Super Kings are the sentimental favourites 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.
Australian Shane Watson is a reliable batsman for Chennai who can also contribute with the ball. His 80 runs in the 2019 final against Mumbai had almost sailed Chennai through, but he ran out to see his team losing the match. The hard-hitter will be one of the favourites in satta market.
Sunrisers Hyderabad Prop Betting
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 2020.
Hyderabad captain Warner scored the most runs (692 runs in 12 matches) in IPL 2019. 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 gone by, 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.
Delhi Capitals Prop Betting
If Mumbai and Chennai are the tournament’s best bets, Delhi Capitals can’t be taken lightly. After having lacklustre showings for six consecutive seasons, the Capitals made the playoffs in 2019, where they slipped out of title contention with a loss to Chennai.
Delhi’s forte is their strong batting lineup that can provide high value throughout IPL 2020 prop betting. Shikhar Dhawan, Rishabh Pant, captain Shreyas Iyer and Prithvi Shaw should compete for Man of the Match on a few occasions.
Delhi have also acquired explosive batsmen Jason Roy and Shimron Hetmyer, who can score quick runs in initial overs. Kagiso Rabada and Ishant Sharma are a great combination to open with pace bowling.
Royal Challengers Bangalore Prop Betting
The once feared Royal Challengers Bangalore have failed to make impression in the previous three editions of IPL, despite having the likes of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Moeen Ali on their side.
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. South African ace Dale Steyn, Chris Morris, Isuru Udana, and Kane Richardson will strengthen Bangalore’s bowling department in 2020.
Yuzvendra Chahal was the leading wickettaker for the Royal Challengers last season. He will lead spin bowling in 2020 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.
