Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers Bangalore: IPL Betting Tips

By Craig Simpkin on March 30, 2019

The Sunrisers Hyderabad, who many consider to be one of the favourites for IPL 2019, will be looking to kick on from Friday’s victory over the Rajasthan Royals with another win against Sunday’s visitors, the Royal Challengers Bangalore. But who do our IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers favour?

RCB opened their campaign by getting rolled out for 70 against the Chennai Super Kings. While they improved last time out against the Mumbai Indians, they still remain winless at this early stage?

Is a home win here for the Sunrisers Hyderabad a formality? Let’s take a look at the sportsbook odds.

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

Last time out the Sunrisers completed their highest run chase in IPL history, with an over to spare it should be added. So they will be brimming with confidence on home soil. At 1.72 with Bet365, they are a warm favourite to make it back-to-back wins.

Calamity seems to be following RCB around at the moment. After their opening day demolition was the no ball controversy in Bengaluru caused by poor umpiring. In truth, they might have beaten Mumbai but for the error. Even so Shivam Dube would have had to clear the ropes with the last ball; a low percentage chance.

At odds of 2.10, Virat Kohli’s men are clear underdogs here and with good reasons. Just consider the differing states of minds of all the players involved; Sunrisers on a high, RCB feeling like the world is against them. Therefore, a home win must surely be on the cards here.

Match Odds Summary: Sunrisers Hyderabad 1.72 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Royal Challengers Bangalore 2.10.

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

Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Once again, David Warner appears to be on a one-man mission to lead the Sunrisers to glory. The Australian currently tops the run charts with 154 in just two innings to date. At odds of 3.00, Warner will certainly come under consideration to top score once again. However, an IPL 2019 satta on Jonny Bairstow, with knocks of 45 and 39 thus far, might be worth a look at 4.33.

The RCB bowling attack is rather seam-heavy, and again that plays into the hands of the non-sub continental players. Kane Williamson has returned, and odds of 4.50 on one of the best limited overs batsmen in the world are welcome.  As ever, the Royal Challengers Bangalore batting will be led from the front by Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers.

Kohli dropped himself down the order from opening to number three against Mumbai. It has subsequently paid instant dividends as he looked far more fluid in making 46 from 32. De Villiers also showed his class in making 70 from 41, and the South African can be backed at 4.00. But it’s Kohli who we’re backing to make his stamp on IPL 2019, and we can do so at 3.00.

There has only been one other RCB score over 30 so far thanks to Parthiv Patel (5.50). So there’s no value in backing anybody else.

Top Batsman Odds Summary: Sunrisers Hyderabad: Warner 3.00, Bairstow 4.33, Williamson 4.50 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), Shankar 7.50, Pandey 7.50, Al-Hasan 8.00, Pathan 10.00.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Kohli 3.00 (Bet365 – Editor’s Pick), de Villiers 4.00, Patel 5.50, Ali 5.50, Hetmyer 8.50, de Grandhomme 13.00.

What are the highest opening partnership in match IPL tips for Sunrisers Hyderabad vs Royal Challengers?

Based on the evidence we’ve seen so far, you’d have to make the Sunrisers opening pair hot favourites to outdo their RCB counterparts. Warner and Bairstow have scored 238 runs between them thus far, while the assumed RCB opening pair of Patel and Moeen Ali have conjured just 82. At odds of 1.80 with Betway, back the Sunrisers to get off to a hot start.

Highest Opening Partnership in Match Odds Summary: Sunrisers Hyderabad, 1.80 (Betway – Editor’s Pick), Royal Challengers Bangalore, 2.00.
