Delhi Capitals v Mumbai Indians: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 16, 2019

An intriguing IPL 12 match awaits on Thursday at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground. So let’s get straight to our IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Mumbai Indians.

Delhi Capitals come into this match on the back of three straight victories that have their fans dreaming of a rare playoff place. At the start of a new week, the newly-named franchise sat in second place in the table. And a further victory against out-of-touch Mumbai could help seal their place in the top four.

Meanwhile, the Indians lost to Rajasthan at the weekend, but bounced back on Monday with a comfortable win over RCB. They are currently level on ten points with the Capitals. So are we in for a close game when the two sides meet on Thursday?

What are the IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Mumbai Indians?

The sportsbooks certainly aren’t expecting a tight finish and anyone looking for an IPL 2019 Satta on this game will find a clear favourite. Mumbai Indians are some ways in front at 1.66. Meanwhile, Delhi are the outside punt at 2.20 with Bet365.

Betting on IPL games often gives us these instances where a team is priced more on reputation than form. Mumbai have some momentum, but there are good reasons to get behind an upset. The Capitals haven’t fallen away at the halfway point as they do in most campaigns. And while they are more reliant on batting, it’s an impressive top order that has the ability to claim the points.

Match Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals: 2.20 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick) Mumbai Indians: 1.66.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Mumbai Indians?

The Capitals may need Shikhar Dhawan to be on top form if they are going to convert that bet. Except for that unbeaten 97 against KKR, the left hander hasn’t been in the best of touch. But if he can kick on, Delhi should make the playoffs. Dhawan is available to top score for his side at odds of 4.00, and that makes him the favourite in this IPL market.

Prithvi Shaw follows at 4.50, while Rishabh Pant is at 4.75 with Betway. Shreyas Iyer top scored in Delhi’s previous match and he can be picked up at 5.00. Other picks include Colin Munro at 5.00, and Colin Ingram at 5.50.

For Mumbai, Rohit Sharma has made a welcome return to fitness and form. Consequently, Sharma leads his side’s top batsman market at 3.40. Quinton De Kock has top scored in each of the Indians’ last two matches and he may be a better option at 4.00. Suryakumar Yadav follows at 5.00.

Kieron Pollard was the man to step up in Rohit’s brief absence, and will attract interest for an IPL 2019 Satta at 9.00. Other options for Mumbai include Ishan Kishan at 6.00, Yuvraj Singh at 7.00, and Hardik Pandya at 11.00.

There are some good options on both sides. However, the man we’re looking to is Rishabh Pant for the Capitals. He’s been overlooked for India’s 2019 World Cup squad and fans outside of the country seem to be perplexed by that decision. We think Pant is a strong character and are expecting a big response to the selectors’ decision.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 4.00, Shaw 4.50, Pant 4.75 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Iyer 5.00, Munro 5.00, Ingram 5.50.

Mumbai Indians: Rohit 3.40, De Kock 4.00, Yadav 5.00, Kishan 6.00, Yuvraj 7.00, Pollard 9.00, Hardik Pandya 11.00.

What are the total runs in match IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Mumbai Indians?

We’ve taken this Satta quite a lot in this tournament, so you’ll have to forgive us for the repetition. Admittedly, the odds aren’t that exciting. Nevertheless, betting on IPL matches often involves looking for safer punts and we think we’ve found one for this game.

The total runs are set at a very low mark for this tie. It’s set at 312.5 and that’s possibly due to the perception that Delhi Capitals are a weak side. Form doesn’t back that up, however. And with a packed set of batting talent in each dugout, we’re confident in betting over that line for Thursday’s clash.

Total Runs in Match Odds Summary: Over 312.5: 1.83 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Under 312.5.
