Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers Bangalore: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 14, 2019

On Monday, a big match is set to take place in Mumbai. But who do our IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers favour?

It took Royal Challengers Bangalore a full seven games, but they are finally off the mark. An eight wicket win over Kings XI Punjab on Saturday means that RCB pick up their first points of IPL 12. The challenge is to see how far they can now climb up the table.

For Mumbai, they remain on course for a playoff place. But, as one of four teams locked on eight points, victory in Monday’s clash becomes more vital.

What are the IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers?

If you’re taking at IPL 2019 Satta on this match then you’ll find the sportsbooks haven’t been swayed by recent results. Bangalore may have finally won but they are the outside bet at 2.10. Meanwhile, Mumbai Indians are the clear favourites at 1.72 with Betway.

The one concern from Saturday’s win was the fact Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers took responsibility to chase that target of 174 down. Other RCB batters were not exposed and this is their main weakness. Dale Steyn joins up with the squad to bolster the pace attack moving forward. Nevertheless, it’s that fragile Bangalore batting lineup that should hand the points to Mumbai.

Match Odds Summary: Mumbai Indians 1.72 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Royal Challengers Bangalore 2.10.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers?

Quinton De Kock’s 81 helped Mumbai post what looked to be a winning total of 187/5 against Rajasthan. The South African’s form has been patchy in this tournament. When you’re betting on IPL top batsman markets, though, you can never write off QDK. The left hander is available to top score against RCB at 4.00. In the meantime, Rohit Sharma starts as favourite at 3.40 with Bet365 again.

Suryakumar Yadav is due a score and he looks a generous prospect at 5.00. Other options for the Indians include Ishan Kishan at 7.00, Kieron Pollard at 9.00, and Hardik Pandya at 10.00.

Anyone taking an IPL 2019 Satta on Royal Challengers will find it hard to look beyond their top two. Virat Kohli top scored against Kings XI with 67 from 53 balls. He is also favourite to do so again this match at 2.87. AB De Villiers follows at 4.00. In addition, Parthiv Patel is available at 5.00.

There isn’t too much potential in the middle order. However, you may want to consider Marcus Stoinis at 6.00, Moeen Ali at 8.50, or Shivam Dube at 10.00.

If you want a modest profit, then we suggest taking Kohli as we think the skipper will stay in a strong run of batting form. But for a better price, we’re getting behind Suryakumar Yadav to top score for Mumbai. The talent is still there and while the form of 2018 has yet to fully return, he can step up and make the biggest contribution on Monday.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Mumbai Indians: Rohit 3.40, De Kock 4.00, Yadav 5.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Kishan 7.00, Pollard 9.00, Hardik Pandya 10.00.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Kohli 2.87, De Villiers 4.00, Patel 5.00, Stoinis 6.00, Ali 8.50, Dube 10.00.

What are the total runs in match IPL tips for Mumbai Indians v Royal Challengers?

Betting on IPL market in this game offers a number of options. If Yadav does make a big contribution for Mumbai Indians then he could be an exceptional pick in the Man of the Match betting at 15.00. Kohli is hot favourite there at 6.50, so there’s good value in that particular market.

We will, however, keep things simple for our final Satta of the day. We suspect this may be a low-scorer, particularly if Mumbai can get either Kohli or De Villiers early. For that reason, we’ll finish off this preview by backing Under the 345.5 run line, where there are odds of 1.83.

Total Runs in Match Odds Summary: Over 345.5: 1.83, Under 345.5: 1.83 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick).
