rcb150Mumbai Indians clash with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League on Tuesday and after three rounds of matches it’s surprising to see these sides have just one win between them.

 

 

In the tournament outright winner betting at the time of writing Mumbai Indians can be backed at around 9/1 and the Royal Challengers are priced at around 4/1. We have a whole host of other outright markets which can be viewed here.

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai have lost all 3 of their matches so far, the most recent of which came at home to the Daredevils on Saturday even though they scored 194/7 batting first. Mumbai will feel they should have posted in excess of 200 on Saturday when the top order of Yadav, Lewis and Krishan had taken them to 166/2 in the sixteenth over and they paid the price as Delhi chased it down in the full 20 overs but with 7 wickets in hand.

Mumbai’s first 2 defeats came in games that could have gone either way as they went down by 1 wicket at home to the Super Kings and away at the Sunrisers.

Suryakumar Yadav is leading Mumbai run scorer with 124 runs in 3 knocks and Mayank Markande has taken 7 wickets in their 3 games so far.

Royal Challengers

RCB have 1 win and 2 defeats from their 3 matches. They opened their account with a 4 wicket home win over Kings XI Punjab in their second outing but they couldn’t follow up in another home fixture against the Royals on Sunday, losing by 19 runs after their bowlers were carted for 217. RCB had begun their campaign with a 4 wicket defeat away to the Knight Riders and they have had problems when facing Mumbai in the past.

AB de Villiers is top RCB run scorer with 121 in 3 knocks and Woakes is leading wicket taker with 7.

Betting Angle

Although neither side will be happy with their start to the tournament this is still a heavyweight clash and the big names could decide it. Kohli is my pick to score 50 or more for RCB.
