RCB vs MI T20 prediction: IPL satta tips

Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli

If we go by head-to-head record between the two sides, Mumbai emerges as the clear winner with 18 wins in 27 matches. Four-time winners Mumbai entered the tournament as reigning champions and favourites. They beat Chennai in the 2019 IPL final and met the same team in the first match of this season. Mumbai, however, lost the opening match by five wickets, but they were quick to improve on their performance as they eased past Kolkata Knight Riders by 49 runs in their second encounter.

Given their outstanding record against Bangalore and with more depth in batting and bowling, Mumbai will be the first choice for bookies in the IPL satta market.

Bangalore, on the other hand, has been plagued by poor bowling in death overs for some years, but they played opposite to their reputation and defended a 163-run total against Hyderabad in their first match.

Their lackluster show of 97-run loss against Punjab put a question on the consistency of a team that has the likes of Kohli and AB de Villiers. Kohli has to reorganize batting order and utilise the bowlers more smartly if Bangalore want to emerge as a serious contender against Mumbai. Taking a lesson from their defeat in the previous match, the team has to make amends in order to stay relevant in IPL betting online market.

RCB vs MI T20 Prediction: Players to watch out for in IPL betting online market

MI players

Mumbai have an array of players who can be highly valuable in IPL satta market. Skipper Rohit Sharma guided the team to title victory last season and he is Mumbai’s best bet in IPL online betting. Just 10 runs short of completing 5,000 runs in IPL, he was in his elements in his team’s match against Kolkata as he smashed 80 runs off 54 balls.

He has Quinton de Kock as the opening partner. The South African is a proven talent in IPL. These two form one of the most formidable opening partnerships in the IPL. Suryakumar Yadav is a consistent batsman in the middle order. While Saurabh Tiwary showed he is not a spent force with knocks of 42 and 21 in first two matches.

Hardik Pandya took the IPL by storm last season with his excellent all-round show. 402 runs, 14 wickets, and strike rate of 192.42 – He was a total freak last season. He will be one of the most sought after cricketers in IPL online betting. Kieron Pollard accelerates run speed in the middle order. The West Indian is also ranked high in IPL satta market. Jasprit Bumrah spearheads Mumbai’s bowling attack. He was the highest wicket taker for his team last season. He will also have a big say in IPL betting markets.

RCB players

Bangalore have some of the finest batsmen in their ranks. The most notable among them is captain Virat Kohli. The highest run-getter in IPL’s history is known to stamp his authority on any bowling attack in the world. He is yet to show his prowess in the tournament. However, he will surely be the best bet from his team. Accompanying him, South African ace De Villiers can also be equally effective with his hard-hitting batting. Aaron Finch can be a reliable top-order batsman and a good prospect to lay your money on. He is yet to play a big innings in this IPL season. But he can hit some booming shots in the beginning of the innings.

Bangalore have Moeen Ali as one of world’s finest all-rounders in their squad. The Englishman is yet to find a place in the team, but given that Australian wicketkeeper batsman Josh Philippe has failed to make an impact in the first two matches, Ali can make his way into the squad.

Yuzvendra Chahal leads Bangalore’s bowling department. He has played up to his reputation by taking four wickets in first two matches. Washington Sundar was a miser with his bowling against Hyderabad and Punjab. He can be a factor if he is given the full quota of overs.

RCB vs MI Weather & Pitch Report

The highest individual score in a match is 132 by Punjab’s KL Rahul against Bangalore.

Average score in first innings: 175.25

Average score in second innings: 137.5

Record of the chasing team: 0 win, 4 losses

RCB vs MI T20 Prediction

Mumbai certainly have an edge over Bangalore given their firepower. But a lot will depend on who wins the toss. A score of 150+ can be defendable for the team batting first.
