Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals: IPL Betting Tips

By Craig Simpkin on March 31, 2019

With four points from their opening three games, the Kings XI Punjab and the Delhi Capitals have both gotten off to strong starts in IPL 2019. And so something has to give when the pair meet on Monday at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali. Which way do the sportsbooks think this one will go? Let’s take a look at our IPL tips for Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals.

What are the IPL tips for Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals?

The Kings XI were convincing winners last time out on home soil. However, that hasn’t persuaded the bookmakers that they should be the favourites for this game. Betway has them priced at odds of 2.05. Which of course means that the Delhi Capitals are regarded as the most likely winner with the sportsbooks at 1.80.

This is another contest where we expect bat to dominate ball, and in that regard the Kings XI look to be stronger right now. They are enjoying contributions from a number of players, with Rahul, Gayle, Agarwal, Miller and Singh, who have all made scores of 30+ in their last two innings.

The Capitals, meanwhile, have been indebted to two outstanding contributions from Shikhar Dhawan and Privthi Shaw. So our IPL 2019 satta is for the Kings’ strength in depth to win the day.

Match Odds Summary: Kings XI Punjab 2.05 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Delhi Capitals 1.80.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals?

A first run-out on home soil worked wonders for the Kings XI last time out. They posted 177/2 against the Mumbai Indians with eight balls to spare. KL Rahul played a perfectly timed innings of 77, and he attracts interest at 3.75 with bet365 to top score for the hosts once again.

But with the Capitals tending to field a seam-heavy bowling attack, Chris Gayle catches the eye once more at 3.75. He plundered 40 off 24 balls last time out. Mayank Agarwal has impressed so far too, and he’s available at 5.00. Meanwhile, those who like long-odds sattas might take a look at David Miller at 7.50.

There’s no doubting that the Kings’ weakness is their bowling attack. KKR compiled a 110-run partnership for their third wicket and Mumbai put 50 on the board before a wicket fell. And so you would expect Delhi’s most in-form batsman, Prithvi Shaw, to take full advantage. He blasted 99 before losing his wicket against the Knight Riders. Shaw will surely enjoy facing the Kings’ below-par bowling unit, and can be backed at 4.25.

Shikhar Dhawan fell early last time out which may put off some bettors who would otherwise enjoy his odds of 4.00. Also, Shreyas Iyer came to the party last time out with 43 and he will be considered at 4.50. Otherwise, it’s a selection of largely form-free middle-order batsmen, none of whom hold any appeal. They may not even get to the crease if the top three fires!

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Kings XI: Gayle 3.75 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Rahul 3.75, Agarwal 5.00, Nair 6.50, Miller 7.50, Singh 15.00.

Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 4.00, Shaw 4.25 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Iyer 4.50, Munro 5.00, Ingram 5.50, Pant 5.50.

What are the most sixes in match IPL tips for Kings XI Punjab v Delhi Capitals?

There’s a fantastic opportunity to back the Kings XI to hit the most sixes at 2.00. In their last two innings, Ravi Ashwin’s men have struck 14 maximums; the Capitals, in the same number of matches, just eight.

The Kings have some explosive batsmen in their ranks, whereas Delhi are a bit more technical. And so this looks to be fantastic value.

Most Sixes in Match Odds Summary: Kings XI, 2.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Delhi Capitals, 2.10, Tie, 7.50.
