Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers Bangalore: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 26, 2019

Travelling to the Feroz Shah Kotla on Sunday are Royal Challengers Bangalore, who are clinging on for IPL 12 survival. They may be in the bottom half of the table, but RCB are the form side right now. So who do our IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers favour.

Meanwhile, Delhi’s impressive season continues and their brilliant run chase against Rajasthan last time out briefly took them to the top of the table. They’ve since been overtaken at the summit by Chennai Super Kings. Nevertheless, the Capitals look set for a rare appearance at the playoff stage.

What are the IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers?

Early prices couldn’t split these two sides and it could well be a very tight game. In some places, Delhi are favourites at around 1.83, but you can pick up the Capitals at best odds of 1.90 with Bet365. However, you can also claim Royal Challengers at that same 1.90.

Betting on IPL matches doesn’t get much tougher than this and it looks like a 50/50 call. At the start of the week, we were looking at the Capitals due to an improvement in their all round batting. RCB’s form makes that a risky punt. But we’ll keep faith with our prediction, and take Delhi to sneak the points in a high scoring contest.

Match Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals: 1.90 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick). Royal Challengers Bangalore: 1.90.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers?

We finally saw the best of Rishabh Pant in Delhi’s most recent win over Rajasthan Royals. The keeper blasted 78 from 36 balls to guide that run chase. Consequently, Pant will now attract plenty of interest at 4.50. Shikhar Dhawan starts as the favourite here at 3.75 with Betway.

Prithvi Shaw has been relatively consistent without really delivering the big scores; he can now be claimed at 5.00. Other Capitals options include Shreyas Iyer at 4.50, Colin Munro at 5.00, and Colin Ingram at 6.50.

Some late order power hitting from AB De Villiers and Marcus Stoinis took Bangalore to a winning total of 202/4 against Kings XI on Wednesday. De Villiers eventually top scored with an undefeated 82 from 44 balls. The South African is available at odds of 3.75.

Virat Kohli remains favourite in RCB’s top batsman market at 2.87. While it may be his time, that’s probably the shortest price you’ll see for this type of bet. Other Bangalore batters include Parthiv Patel at 4.75, Marcus Stoinis at 7.00, Shimron Hetmyer at 7.00, and Akshdeep Nath at 9.50.

For our IPL 2019 Satta this time, we’re looking at the favourites. Kohli may be too short, but Shikhar Dhawan’s price of 3.75 is more generous. We’ve challenged the Delhi Capital’s batters to come through and win the game. Dhawan will be pivotal to that, so we’ll take the left hander to make a major contribution.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 3.75 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Pant 4.50, Iyer 4.50, Shaw 5.00, Munro 5.00, Ingram 6.50.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Kohli 2.87, De Villiers 3.75, Patel 4.75, Stoinis 7.00, Hetmyer 7.00, Nath 9.50.

What are the top bowler IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers?

We think there is some good value in RCB’s top bowler IPL market and we’ll use it to finish off this game. The spinners usually play a crucial part at the IPL. In this year’s tournament, however, the likes of Rashid Khan and Sunil Narine have struggled at times.

We think this is a day for the seamers and Bangalore’s Umesh Yadav carries generous odds of 5.00 to return best figures for his team. He delivered the profit against Kings XI last time out. Therefore, with the increased chance of wickets in the death overs, Umesh is our pick.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Top Bowler Odds Summary: Chahal 3.00, Southee 4.50, Saini 5.00, Umesh Yadav 5.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Stoinis 6.00, Negi 8.00.
