Sunrisers Hyderabad v Kolkata Knight Riders: IPL Betting Tips

By Matt Harris on April 20, 2019

With both of these sides just outside of the playoff places, Sunday’s game in Hyderabad is the most crucial of IPL 12 so far. Both the Sunrisers and KKR started the tournament brightly. Nevertheless, a recent dip in form sees them playing catch up with the top four. Betting on IPL markets often gives us tight calls such as this. But who do our IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad v Knight Riders favour ahead of this vital fixture?

What are the IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad v Knight Riders?

While this looks set to be a close game, the Knight Riders start as clear favourites and can be picked up at odds of 1.83 with Betway for the win. If you’re taking an IPL 2019 Satta on Sunrisers Hyderabad, that figure goes out to 2.00.

The difference in prices is likely to be down to the comparative depth in these sides. Sunrisers Hyderabad rely heavily on their top three batters, while KKR extend down to Andre Russell in the death overs. The stats tend to point to the Knight Riders. Still, this is one occasion where we expect Warner, Bairstow and Williamson to fire for Hyderabad and claim the points.

Match Odds Summary: Sunrisers Hyderabad: 2.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Kolkata Knight Riders: 1.83 (Betway)

What are the top batsman IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad v Knight Riders?

David Warner has the more consistent form in this tournament. Furthermore, the Aussie looks a good bet to claim the Orange Cap this season. Warner starts as favourite to top score for the Sunrisers and you can pick him up at odds of 3.00. Jonny Bairstow follows at 3.75, while a slow start to the tournament sees Kane Williamson out at 5.00 with Bet365.

Williamson’s place could be under threat. Therefore, you may want to consider Martin Guptill at 4.50 or Mohammad Nabi at 9.00. Other Sunrisers’ options include Deepak Hooda at 9.00, and Manish Pandey at 10.00.

Nitish Rana top scored for KKR against RCB with 85 from 46 balls and he can be claimed in Kolkata’s top batsman market at 5.50. Chris Lynn starts as the favourite here at 3.75, while Andre Russell has shortened to 5.00.

We’ve seen little from Sunil Narine with the bat, but you can claim him here at 6.50. Other Knight Riders’ batters include Robin Uthappa at 5.50, and Dinesh Karthik at 8.00.

We’re going to give Kane Williamson another chance here. If you’re taking an IPL 2019 Satta on the Kiwi, then you may want to check the teamsheets first. But if he’s playing, Williamson is too good a batsman to stay out of form for too long.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Sunrisers Hyderabad: Warner 3.00, Bairstow 3.75, Guptill 4.50, Williamson 5.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Nabi 9.00, Hooda 9.00, Pandey 10.00.

Kolkata Knight Riders: Lynn 3.75, Russell 5.00, Rana 5.50, Uthappa 5.50, Narine 6.50, Karthik 8.00.

What are the man of the match IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad v Knight Riders?

This is a market that we don’t often get behind. However, betting on IPL matches often means seeking out higher prices. Man of the Match betting offers 22 options. In reality, though, it will usually come down to two or three of the best players from either side.

Andre Russell is the favourite here at 7.00 with Betway, while David Warner follows at 7.50 with Betway again. However, we think this is a day for the bowlers to shine. If Rashid Khan can pick up some key wickets here, he will look extremely generous at his odds of 9.00 with Bet365.

Man of the Match Odds Summary: Russell 7.00, Warner 7.50, Rashid 9.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Bairstow 10.00, Williamson 10.00, Narine 11.00.
