Delhi Capitals v Sunrisers Hyderabad: IPL Betting Tips – Round 2

By Matt Harris on May 6, 2019

Wednesday’s eliminator features two teams who enjoyed contrasting campaigns at IPL 12. But who do our IPL tips for Delhi Capitals v Sunrisers Hyderabad favour?

Delhi Capitals were impressive throughout and finished on 18 points – the same tally as Mumbai and Chennai, who occupied the top two places.

Sunrisers, in contrast, were inconsistent through the regular season and became the first team ever to qualify for the playoffs with just 12 points. Will those differing results give the Capitals the edge? Or will Hyderabad have enough to progress and upset the following IPL betting market?

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

Based on the above information, the sportsbooks have made Delhi Capitals the favourites for Wednesday’s game. You can pick up Shreyas Iyer’s men at odds of 1.80 with Bet365. Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad are the outside bet at 2.00.

There can certainly be a surprise outcome here. But do SRH really have enough in the tank to progress? At the start of IPL 12, they were relying on heavy run scoring from David Warner and Jonny Bairstow. However, both men have left the camp for World Cup duty. Sunrisers’ famed bowling attack has rarely fired and Rashid Khan has lacked the penetration shown in previous years.

Sometimes, betting on IPL match results means looking at the obvious option. Delhi have retained a strong squad while Sunrisers are simply running out of steam. It’s therefore hard to see past the favourites here.

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

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

Rishabh Pant’s unbeaten half century saw Delhi home in a low scoring game against Rajasthan on Saturday. We’ve seen glimpses of Pant at his best this season. You can subsequently back him at 4.50 with Bet365 to score most runs for the Capitals on Wednesday.

Shikhar Dhawan starts as favourite here at 3.25. Skipper Shreyas Iyer then follows at 4.50. We’ve yet to see Prithvi Shaw at his absolute best, but you can claim him at 5.00 with Betway while other Delhi options include Colin Munro at 5.00 and Colin Ingram at 6.50 – both with Betway.

For the Sunrisers, with Bairstow and Warner out of the side, the man to step up was Manish Pandey. He enjoyed a run of top scores in three of four matches and Pandey is an option for Wednesday at 5.00.

Kane Williamson finally found form with an unbeaten 70 at the weekend. Consequently, the skipper starts as favourite now at 4.00. Following on are Martin Guptill at 4.50, Wriddhiman Saha at 5.00, Vijay Shankar at 8.50, and Yusuf Pathan at 12.00.

There are some interesting prices in both camps here. However, our IPL 2019 Satta is going on Shreyas Iyer to top score for Delhi. He’s been an impressive skipper in an impressive side. Throughout the tournament, Iyer has also stepped up when the Capitals have needed him most.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 3.25 , Pant 4.50, Iyer 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Shaw 5.00, Munro 5.00, Ingram 6.50.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Williamson 4.00, Guptill 4.50, Saha 5.00, Pandey 5.00, Shankar 8.50, Pathan 12.00.

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

Bet365 have yet to produce a Total Match Runs market, so we’ll finish instead with the individual equivalent. The same bookmaker has offered odds of 1.83 on the highest individual score to come in at above 69.5. We think there is enough talent in either side to exceed that figure.

Kane Williamson made 70 in the previous match against Royal Challengers Bangalore, while Manish Pandey is also in excellent form coming into Wednesday’s eliminator. The Capitals have Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant all in good touch. Therefore, we do expect that 69.5 line to be exceeded.

Highest Individual Score in Match Odds Summary: Over 69.5: 1.83 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Under 69.5: 1.83.
