Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 21, 2019

Delhi Capitals continue to hone in on a playoff place following an impressive run chase against Kings XI on Saturday. The side have been transformed with a change of name setting the tone for an improved campaign. On Monday, Delhi travel to Rajasthan where the Royals are also coming into the IPL 12 match on the back of a win. Immediate form is good, but which side do our IPL tips for Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals favour?

What are the IPL tips for Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals?

The sportsbooks have been slow to react to Saturday’s matches and so far, we only have odds from Bet365. We’re happy that their pricing is always competitive, though. For Monday’s clash, they have quoted Delhi as favourites at 1.80, followed by the Royals at 2.00.

At the start of the week we were backing Jos Buttler to fire Rajasthan to victory before he left the squad. The Englishman has, however, departed ahead of schedule. Nevertheless, we saw enough improvements against Mumbai to stick with our original decision. The Royals look a tighter unit with Steve Smith in charge and they can continue that momentum against Delhi.

Match Odds Summary: Rajasthan Royals: 2.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Delhi Capitals: 1.80.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals?

With Buttler out of the squad, new skipper Steve Smith is the favourite to top score for his side at 3.75. Ajinkya Rahane follows at 4.33, while Sanju Samson is also on offer at that same 4.33 price.

Riyan Parag had a debut to remember against Mumbai and he becomes an option now at 8.00. Other Rajasthan batsmen include Manan Vohra at 5.00, Rahul Tripathi at 5.00 and Ben Stokes at 7.00.

Delhi were guided home on Saturday by Shreyas Iyer, who made an unbeaten 58 and he will attract interest in the Capitals’ top batsman IPL market at 4.50. Shikhar Dhawan starts as favourite at 3.75, while Prithvi Shaw is on offer at 4.00.

We haven’t seen the best of Rishabh Pant at this tournament, but you can back the keeper here at 4.50. Other Capitals’ options include Colin Munro at 5.00 and Rahul Tewatia at 15.00.

Betting on IPL matches sometimes means balancing your stakes. Having gone for the outsiders in the match betting, we’ll therefore take a favourite here. Shikhar Dhawan is just starting to find some consistency. So, we’re backing the left hander to make the major contribution for Delhi.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Rajasthan Royals: Smith 3.75, Rahane 4.33, Samson 4.33, Vohra 5.00, Tripathi 5.00, Stokes 7.00, Parag 8.00.

Delhi Capitals: Dhawan 3.75 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Shaw 4.00, Iyer 4.50, Pant 4.50, Munro 5.00, Tewatia 15.00.

What are the total match sixes IPL tips for Rajasthan Royals v Delhi Capitals?

With bookmakers slow to quote odds following Saturday’s games, we don’t have too many options for our final IPL 2019 Satta of this match. We could look at the top bowler betting on either team, where Shreyas Gopal would be our preference for Rajasthan at 3.40.

However, we’ll finish with the batting for Sunday’s game. We’re expecting quite a high scoring contest. And while this is a big ground, over 10.5 sixes looks sound at odds of 2.00. Jos Buttler’s absence hampers this a little, but there is enough firepower in both camps to record at least 11 maximums.

Total Match Sixes Odds Summary: Over 10.5: 2.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Under 10.5: 1.72
