Royal Challengers Bangalore v Sunrisers Hyderabad: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on May 3, 2019

RCB were the first team to be eliminated from this year’s edition of the IPL. Nevertheless, they can still have a big say as to who makes the playoffs. Meanwhile, Sunrisers Hyderabad are currently occupying fourth spot but really need to win to hold on, ahead of the chasing pack. So who do our IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Sunrisers Hyderabad.

It needed a Super Over before SRH finally succumbed to Mumbai on Thursday. Can Kane Williamson’s men recover or should your IPL 2019 Satta be placed on Bangalore this Saturday?

What are the IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Sunrisers Hyderabad?

Royal Challengers sit at the bottom of the table as the first team eliminated. However, Royal Challengers carry the same win odds as the Sunrisers. RCB can be found at 1.90, while Hyderabad are at that same 1.90 with Betway.

When betting on IPL matches involving Bangalore we often find they’re priced on reputation rather than performance. That seems to be the case here. It’s true that the Sunrisers’ batting is a concern now that Jonny Bairstow and David Warner have left the squad. Still, RCB hardly justify being under 2.00. We do expect Virat Kohli and his men to respond and take advantage of a depleted Hyderabad unit, but we were hoping for better odds here.

Match Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore 1.90 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Sunrisers Hyderabad 1.90.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Sunrisers Hyderabad?

Royal Challengers have relied heavily on Virat Kohli and AB De Villiers in the batting department, as they often do. There has been support from Parthiv Patel and Moeen Ali at times. However, a lack of batting depth has been RCB’s downfall.

For Saturday’s match, Kohli is favourite to top score against SRH at 2.87. HDe Villiers follows at 3.75. Parthiv has shown some consistency this year, and he’s a serious option at 5.00. Other RCB contenders include Shimron Hetmyer at 7.00, Heinrich Klassen at 7.50 and Shivam Dube at 13.00 – all with Bet365.

The star for Sunrisers in recent games has been Manish Pandey. He hass stepped up in the absence of Warner and Bairstow and top scored in three of Hyderabad’s last four matches. Pandey will therefore attract lots of interest in Saturday’s clash at odds of 5.00 with Bet365.

Kane Williamson starts as the favourite here at 4.00 with Bet365. Meanwhile, his Kiwi team mate Martin Guptill is available at 4.33 with Bet365 once again. Yusuf Pathan has now drifted to a more sensible price of 8.50 with Betway, while you could also consider Vijay Shankar at 7.50 with Betway and Wriddhiman Saha at 8.00 with Bet365.

We think this is a day where Virat Kohli will stand out. Therefore, it’s a question of whether you want to take an IPL 2019 Satta at such a short price of 2.87. Betting on IPL markets sometimes means taking a more calculated risk, though, so we’ll opt for Martin Guptill here.

It can’t be easy carrying the drinks for most of the tournament before coming in late in the competition. However, Guptill can be a devastating hitter and one that can take advantage of a struggling RCB attack.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Kohli 2.87, De Villiers 3.75, Patel 5.00, Hetmyer 7.00, Klassen 7.50, Dube 13.00.

Sunrisers Hyderabad: Williamson 4.00, Guptill 4.33 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Pandey 5.00, Shankar 7.50, Saha 8.00, Pathan 8.50.

What are the most sixes in match IPL tips for Royal Challengers v Sunrisers Hyderabad?

We’ve used this market quite a lot at IPL 12. That said, there is some definite value for Saturday’s game and we don’t want to ignore it. Royal Challengers are hot favourites to hit most sixes at 1.57. That leaves the Sunrisers with a much longer set of odds at 2.87.

This is a bit of a hedge: we’ve tipped RCB to win but this most maximum bet relies almost completely on Kohli and De Villiers. Sunrisers have more depth in terms of power hitting and that 2.87 price offers definite value.

Most Sixes Odds Summary: Royal Challengers Bangalore 1.57, Sunrisers Hyderabad 2.87 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), The Tie 8.50.
