Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings: IPL Betting Tips

By Craig Simpkin on April 2, 2019

With three wins from as many games, the Chennai Super Kings are riding high in IPL 2019. They will now be looking to make it the perfect four from four on Wednesday. Standing in their way are the Mumbai Indians, who return to the Wankhede Stadium looking to get back on track after just one win in the competition so far. How will the action unfold? Here’s our latest IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Super Kings.

What are the IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Super Kings?

Nine of the thirteen matches played so far have been won by the home team. But that hasn’t stopped the sportsbooks from making the Mumbai Indians their underdogs at odds of 2.00 with bet365.

Chennai’s perfect record entitles them to be favourites for this game, which they are at odds of 1.80. So can they upset the trend for home field domination? The facts are that MS Dhoni’s team have gone to Delhi and won already, while Mumbai Indians’ only game on home turf ended in a disappointing defeat for them.

However, they have to win on their home turf eventually. Therefore, our IPL 2019 satta is on Mumbai to best Chennai here.

Match Odds Summary: Mumbai Indians 2.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Chennai Super Kings 1.80 (Betway).

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Super Kings?

In the one match to be played at Mumbai so far in IPL 2019, 16 wickets fell. One of those was a run out, and the other when Jasprit Bumrah was absent without facing a ball. Of the remaining 14, seamers were responsible for 12, which suggests the pacemen can thrive at this track. It’s interesting because of the Mumbai Indians’ batsmen which might trouble Rohit Sharma the most. He has already been dismissed by Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav and Hardus Viljoen this season. And perhaps he’s one to avoid at 3.25 with Betway.

For the same reasons we might give Suryakumar Yadav and Yuvraj Singh, at 5.00 and 7.00, a miss too.

All of which elevates the claims of Quinton de Kock, who hit 60 off 39 balls against the Kings XI Punjab. At 3.50, he is arguably the smart satta here.

The likes of Bumrah, McClenaghan, Cutting, Pandya, Malinga and Salam could feature in the Mumbai bowling attack to give it a seam heavy feel. Again those are conditions in which we expect Shane Watson to lead from the front for Chennai. The Aussie hasn’t quite hit his straps in IPL 2019 yet. However, a knock of 44 against Delhi suggest his form isn’t too far away. At 3.75, he’s our pick for the away team.

Ambati Rayadu (4.00) is struggling right now and perhaps doesn’t represent value against a decent Mumbai bowling unit. Meanwhile, Suresh Raina (4.33) has got a few starts without going on to make a big score.

For those who prefer longer odds, MS Dhoni showed his full arsenal of shots in his 75 against the Rajasthan Royals, and he may get plenty of time at the crease here. At 7.00, he’s on the shortlist.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Mumbai Indians: Sharma 3.25, de Kock 3.50 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Lewis 4.33, Yadav 5.00, Kishan 5.00, Singh 7.00.

Chennai Super Kings: Watson 3.75 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Rayadu 4.00, Raina 4.33, Vijay 5.00, du Plessis 5.00, Dhoni 7.00.

What are the total match fours in match IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Super Kings?

This is one of those occasions where you wonder if the sportsbooks have got their ‘over/under’ line wrong as far as the total fours in the match market is concerned. In Mumbai’s opener at the Wankhede Stadium, some 42 boundaries were struck. Yet bet365 has their line at 30.5. Therefore, we’ll be taking the overs at 1.83.

Total Match Fours in Match Odds Summary: Over 30.5, 1.83 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Under 30.5, 1.83.
