Delhi Capitals v Kings XI Punjab: IPL Betting Tips
Travelling to the Feroz Shah Kotla are a Kings XI Punjab who retain playoff ambitions of their own after easing past Rajasthan last time out.
Meanwhile, it’s taken more than a mere change of name to turn around the fortunes of Delhi at IPL 12. As the Daredevils, we were used to seeing the team battle it out at the bottom of the table. However, this 2019 Capitals side is a much stronger unit. In fact, the top order is a match for most sides in this tournament. In addition, they had taken Delhi to a deserved second place in the table prior to Thursday’s loss to Mumbai.
What are the IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Kings XI Punjab?
We were expecting a tight IPL market for this one considering that the teams are locked on ten points after nine matches. We have exactly that with Delhi Capitals available at 1.90 with Bet365 while Kings XI Punjab are at that same 1.90.
Kings XI Punjab have remained in contention for a top four finish because their key players have been firing. KL Rahul and Chris Gayle are the dangermen. However, they are also key wickets and if they fall early, KXIP tend to struggle. Delhi’s weak batting display against Mumbai on Thursday is a concern. Nevertheless, we backed the Capitals at the start of the week and aren’t going to stray from that decision.
Match Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals: 1.90 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick) Kings XI Punjab: 1.90.
What are the top batsman IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Kings XI Punjab?
Delhi Capitals’ rise up the table has been impressive for many reasons. We talk about their strong batting lineup, but their big signing, Shikhar Dhawan, has yet to really fire. The left hander has been a little too inconsistent this season. Nonetheless, he remains favourite to top score against KXIP at 3.75 with Betway.
The Capitals have brought Colin Munro into their side and you can back the Kiwi at 5.00. Other Delhi batters include Prithvi Shaw and Rishabh Pant, who are both at 4.75. As well as Shreyas Iyer at 5.00, and Chris Morris as an outside Satta at 15.00.
It’s not often that Chris Gayle is squeezed into second place in any top batsman market. KL Rahul’s form, though, sees the home batsman lead the way. Rahul remains in contention for the Orange Cap with 387 runs from nine innings. He’s also favourite to top score against Delhi at 3.75, just ahead of Gayle at 4.00.
We’ve seen little from Kings’ other batters this season; neither Gayle or Rahul has top scored in each of their last four matches. But you could opt for Mayank Agarwal at 5.00, David Miller at 5.50, Karun Nair at 7.00 or Sarfaraz Khan at 8.00.
We’ve opted for Rishabh Pant on occasions, but have yet to see the keeper/batsman really fire at IPL 12. Perhaps that inconsistency has cost him a World Cup place. That said, he’s due a big score and we’re happy to take our IPL 2019 Satta on Pant at generous odds of 4.75.
Top Batsman Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 3.75, Shaw 4.75, Pant 4.75 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Iyer 5.00, Munro 5.00, Morris 15.00.
Kings XI Punjab: Rahul 3.75, Gayle 4.00, Agarwal 5.00, Miller 5.50, Nair 7.00, Khan 8.00.
What are the top bowler IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Kings XI Punjab?
Delhi’s bowling has been led by Kagiso Rabada, who looks a good bet for the Purple Cap at this stage. The South African needs better support from his team mates and that’s why he’s so far ahead in Delhi’s top bowler market at 3.25 with Bet365.
Betting on IPL matches involves following a hunch at times. And while Chris Morris was expensive against Mumbai, his death bowling can give Delhi an edge at crucial times. Moreover, the all-rounder carries a good value price of 4.50.
Delhi Capitals Top Bowler Odds Summary: Rabada 3.25, Morris 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Ishant Sharma 5.50, Axar Patel 6.00, Keemo Paul 6.50.
