Delhi Capitals v Sunrisers Hyderabad: IPL Betting Tips

By Craig Simpkin on April 2, 2019

With two wins each in IPL 2019 so far, both the Delhi Capitals and Sunrisers Hyderabad are knocking on the door of the play-off places at this early stage of the competition. But who do our IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Sunrisers Hyderabad favour?

Delhi might be left wondering what might have been after their incredible collapse against the Kings XI. But at least they get to return to some home comforts on Thursday. As for the Sunrisers, it’s very much been a case of business as usual as they look to progress deep into the tournament once more. It’s a mouth-watering prospect for sure.

What are the IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Sunrisers Hyderabad?

It really is quite difficult to analyze this Delhi Capitals team. Outstanding in victory against the Mumbai Indians, they showed grace under pressure to win the super over against KKR. However, they then folded like a deck of cards last time out against the Kings XI. The bookmakers aren’t quite sure either, and so Delhi are priced at 2.00 here.

The Sunrisers come into this game on the back of a record-breaking win against RCB. That’s when David Warner and Jonny Bairstow posted the highest opening partnership (185) in IPL history. They have now made scores of 183, 201 and 231. That naturally makes them a good IPL 2019 satta at 1.80 with Betway.

Match Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals 2.00 (Bet365), Sunrisers Hyderabad 1.80 (Betway – Editor’s Pick).

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Sunrisers Hyderabad?

This is a strong Sunrisers bowling attack with plenty of canny operators, such as Rashid Khan, Mohammad Nabi and Sandeep Sharma. Therefore, we expect the more patient Delhi batsmen to thrive here. That might discount Prithvi Shaw from our reckoning, who appears to be a bit all-or-nothing right now. At 5.00 with Betway, we’re willing to overlook the opener.

Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Risabh Pant all batted well against the Kings XI before either good bowling or a lack of judgement saw to them. So we have considered them all. Dhawan is well respected by the market (4.00). We can also get better prices for Pant (4.50) and our pick Iyer, who batted very nicely for 43 last time he played at the Feroz Shah Kotla Ground. We’ll take the 4.50 available.

With 169 and 161 runs in their last two respective innings, how do we pick apart David Warner and Jonny Bairstow for the Sunrisers!? It’s a tough call. But with Delhi potentially fielding Amit Mishra and Sandeep Lamichhane in their side, and Warner being a better player of spin than Bairstow, we’ll side with the Australian at 3.25.

None of the other Sunrisers batsmen have really shown their skills so far. That’s basically because they haven’t needed to with their openers in such fine form. Kane Williamson has to be respected as ever at 4.50. Meanwhile, if Martin Guptill gets the nod we know that he is capable of firework. The Kiwi is available at 4.50. But right now, it would be madness to overlook either Warner or Bairstow.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 4.00, Pant 4.50, Iyer 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Shaw 5.00, Munro 5.00, Ingram 5.50.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Warner 3.25 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Bairstow 4.33, Guptill 4.50, Williamson 4.50, Goswami 5.50, Shankar 7.50.

What are the highest opening partnership in match IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Sunrisers Hyderabad?

If you’ve read all of this preview up until now, you will have a good idea of how we expect this game to go.

It’s remarkable to see bet365 regarding the Highest Opening Partnership market as a coin flip, with both teams priced at 1.83. Warner and Bairstow have posted 100+ partnerships in each of their last two starts. Meanwhile, Shaw’s scores of 0, 7, 24 and 99 suggest he could be vulnerable for Delhi.

We have to take the Sunrisers here based on the numbers.

Highest Opening Partnership in Match Odds Summary: Delhi, 1.83, Sunrisers, 1.83 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick).
