Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 28, 2019

Just three group games remain for Sunrisers and Kings XI. Furthermore, with these two sides locked on ten points apiece, Monday’s match becomes a must win. Therefore, let’s get straight to our IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab.

Form is poor in each camp and the losers may well be saying goodbye to IPL 12 at the end of forty overs. It’s a particularly fast turnaround for Hyderabad who lost to Rajasthan on Saturday. But will that be the deciding factor in what looks to be a close contest?

What are the IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab?

If you’re taking an IPL 2019 Satta on this one, the result market isn’t as close as you might have expected. Sunrisers Hyderabad will go into the game as clear favourites at 1.75 with Betway. Meanwhile, Kings XI Punjab are the outside bet at 2.10.

Earlier in the week we were looking for Sunrisers’ batsmen to respond to the absence of Jonny Bairstow and step up with a big performance against the Royals. It didn’t quite happen and that leaves the side vulnerable on Monday.

Kings XI have little form themselves and are backing up our theory that they fall away late in the season. Overall, we were hoping for better odds, but betting on IPL matches often means taking the low option. Therefore, we’ll stay with our original tip of a SRH victory.

Match Odds Summary: Sunrisers Hyderabad 1.75 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Kings XI Punjab 2.10.

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab?

Manish Pandey continued a good run of form with the bat; Pandey made 61 from 36 balls for Sunrisers against Rajasthan. Pandey can now be picked up at 5.00 to top score against KXIP in a market where David Warner starts as favourite at 3.00 with Bet365 again.

Kane Williamson has yet to rediscover his Orange Cap form from 2018. Nevertheless, you can claim the Kiwi at 4.50. Other picks for Hyderabad include Vijay Shankar at 6.50, Shakib Al Hasan at 8.00 and Yusuf Pathan at 9.00.

For Kings XI Punjab, this bet usually comes down to two batsmen; the sportsbooks are curently struggling to separate Chris Gayle and KL Rahul. Against the Sunrisers on Monday, Gayle is just ahead at 3.25. He is followed by Rahul at 3.60.

We’ve yet to really see the best of David Miller this season. But if you want to get behind the South African, he’s on offer at 5.50. Meanwhile, other Kings options include Mayank Agarwal at 5.50, Sarfaraz Khan at 8.00, and Moises Henriques at 10.00.

There are lots of good selections there. Sometimes, though, betting on top batsman IPL markets is about being stubborn. Kane Williamson is such a good batsman that he cannot stay out of form for long. Therefore, we’ll give him one more chance to fire Sunrisers to victory with a major contribution.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Sunrisers Hyderabad: Warner 3.00, Williamson 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Pandey 5.00, Shankar 6.50, Shakib 8.00, Pathan 9.00.

Kings XI Punjab: Gayle 3.25, Rahul 3.60, Miller 5.50, Agarwal 5.50, Khan 8.00, Henriques 10.00.

What are the total runs IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kings XI Punjab?

We’ve taken a bit of a punt on Williamson in the previous section so, for our final IPL 2019 Satta of this match, we’ll look to play a little safer. We think this will be a low scorer and are looking at a game where KXIP bat first and lose Gayle and Rahul cheaply. With the middle order struggling, that would set the Sunrisers a low total to chase down.

It may need that exact scenario to land, but form is poor in both camps. So we’re happy to bet Under the 326.5 run line here at odds of 1.83.

Total Runs in Match Odds Summary: Over 326.5: 1.83, Under 326.5: 1.83 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick).
