GT vs LSG T20 Betting Sites

The two new IPL franchises that are playing this season are the Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants. Both teams will get their induction into the IPL on 28 March at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai as they face-off and look to start their IPL journey on a winning note.

This is going to be a very interesting matchup for the fans of the Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants as well as the other IPL franchises. It will give us an indicator of whether these two teams can be serious contenders for the playoffs this season or if it will take time to settle down and find their feet during 2022 online IPL betting.

This is also going to be a test for both captains as Hardik Pandya is captaining an IPL franchise for the first time and has no significant captaincy experience playing at a high level. KL Rahul has done a good job as an IPL captain when he was with Punjab Kings but now has a new squad that he will have to mentor and bring them together to perform as a team.

Gujarat Titans vs. Lucknow Super Giants Odds

Bet365 has given the Gujarat Titans odds of 1.73 to win this game while the Lucknow Super Giants are slight underdogs with odds of 2.10. We find these odds very interesting as the bookmakers don’t really have any specific data to go on since both these teams are new to the IPL.

Our experts don’t agree with these odds as to when you look at the two squads, we think Lucknow Super Giants have a lot more balance when compared to the Gujarat Titans. We find that the Titans have a strong bowling line-up but a weak batting line-up. They are putting too much pressure on some of their all-rounders including their captain H Pandya.

The Giants look the better side on paper and if they play to potential on the day, they should be able to beat the Titans easily.

Gujarat Titans vs. Lucknow Super Giants – IPL Match Prediction

We are going to go against the bookmakers and back the underdogs to win this game in our IPL match prediction. We have three main reasons why we are going to back the Lucknow Super Giants to win,

We believe KL Rahul will have an edge over H Pandya in the captaincy department as it is going to take H Pandya a few games to find his feet as a leader and captain. KL Rahul has shown in the past that he is an astute captain and knows how to bring out the best in his players.

The second reason we think Lucknow Super Giants will win is that they have a strong batting line-up that should be able to handle the bowling line-up of the Gujarat Titans. The Titans will be relying mainly on their spinners to cause problems and the Giants have some great players of spin which include KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock, and M Pandey.

The third and final reason why we are backing the Giants is that the Titans have a weak batting line-up and we don’t think they are going to be able to handle the pressure as the Giants have a great mix of spinners and pace bowlers.

The only way we feel that the Gujarat Titans can get the better of the Lucknow Super Giants is if one of the Titans players puts in a match-winning performance.

IPL Betting tips: GT vs LSG T20

The safest bet that we feel you can make on this game is to bet on the outright result and we would put our money on the Lucknow Super Giants to win. However, there are a number of side bets that you can also engage in. The three side bets that we think could be a lot of fun include:

Winning The Toss

You will be able to bet on which team wins the toss and if you get it right, you get paid. The odds for both teams as of now stand at 1.91.

Top Batsman

You have the option to pick the batsman you think will finish with the most number of runs during the match. You can pick a player from either the Lucknow Super Giants or the Gujarat Titans.

The three players to watch out for the Titans include S Gill (3.4), M Wade (4), and D Miller (6.5). The three players that could end up on top for the Giants are KL Rahul (3.4), Quinton de Kock (4), and M Pandey (4.5).

We are going to put our money on KL Rahul.

Top Bowler

You get the option to pick the bowler who you think will end up with the most wickets. The top three bowlers from the Giants are Avesh Khan (3.25), R Bishnoi (4.5), and A Tye (4.33) while the top three bowlers from the Titans are R Khan (3.4), L Ferguson (3.75), and M Shami (4).

We are going to back Rashid Khan to win this one

Player of the Match

You can bet on who you think will be the player of the match. One of the ways you can improve your chances of winning is to see if the pitch is going to be bowler-friendly or batter-friendly. We believe the pitch at the Wankhede is going to continue to be batter friendly and hence we are going to pick a batter instead of a bowler to win.

The three main candidates for our player of the match bet are KL Rahul (6.5), R Khan (8), and  M Wade (9). We are going to put our money on KL Rahul for this one.

Gujarat Titans vs. Lucknow Super Giants EXPECTED Playing XI

Expect both sides to keep tinkering with their playing XI as the tournament progresses. It will take the Gujarat Titans and the Lucknow Super Giants a few games to work out what is their best combination.

For now, we feel that the sides are going to pick all of the big names and hence we think the playing XI for this game is likely going to be as follows.

Gujarat Titans Expected Playing XI

S Gill, M Wade, Gurkeerat Singh Mann, David Miller, H Pandya (C), V Shankar, W Saha, Rashid Khan, M Shami, Lockie Ferguson, Jayant Yadav.

Lucknow Super Giants Expected Playing XI

KL Rahul (C), Quinton de Kock, Manan Vohra, Manish Pandey, Marcus Stoinis, Deepak Hooda, Jason Holder, Krunal Pandya, Ravi Bishnoi, Andrew Tye, S Nadeem.

Gujarat Titans vs. Lucknow Super Giants Head To Head

This is the first time that both these teams are debuting in the history of the IPL and hence we don’t have any stats to fall back on. What we can do is look at the core players of each of these teams and then make a guesstimate on what we can expect when these two IPL franchises play each other for the first time.
