IPL starts on Saturday, looks wide open.

Put this outright preview together with squad details and some form etc...

Mumbai came through for last year and I like them again though 4/1 looks short enough, think Delhi could go deep at twice the price.

Ive seen some top team bat and bowler markets as well and all tips are most welcome here

IPL 2018, plus any other cricket 2 weeks 5 days ago #80237

My quick thoughts:

Mumbai: always competitive but not that impressed with the quality of their squad and can't see them going deep unless Evin Lewis and Sharma hit the ground running.Not for me at that price.

Chennai: A lot of experience in their team with Dhoni, Faf, jadeja, reina etc. Think they'll be consistent but don't see as many match winners as some of the other teams. Think they can make the playoffs but won't win.

Royals: Butler and Stokes are match winners but unless they fire every game they'll struggle. Don't have enough quality Indian players. pass

Dehli: Again, Some serious match winners with the likes of Roy, Maxwell and Munro but again I think they don't have enough good Indian players to perform consistently.

Bangalore: They have some serious players on the international front and Kohli, Yadav and chahal will form the backbone of the Indian players in the team. Favorites for me.

Kolkata: Their squad is thinner than most but they have real quality. I'm a big Chris Lynn fan and Chawla and yadav are quality spinners. Think they short a batsmen and another pace bowler but I think they could do well.

Sunrisers: Like the look of the squad. Will be consistant and should make the playoffs. From there anythings possible.

Punjab: Internationals look weaker than most squads. Miller or Gayle will need to come off consistently and I have my doubts either will.

Bets
Bangalore win @9/2
Top Batsman Lynn @14/1
Top Bowler Chahal @10/1
Top Kolkata batsmen Lynn @16/10
Top royals Batsmen Buttler @9/2

Over 27.5 fours in tomorrow’s IPL match. Purely based on the fact I won this bet today in a very low scoring game. @ 1.85

kkr look by far the most balanced side, not sure tom curran was the right signing but batting very dangerous all the way down the order and have quality spinners, RCB I say will improve as season goes on and will be another quality side, rajahstan and delhi both look completely unbalanced and overrated, Chennai pace bowling very weak, strong Indian players but international players like billings and watson huge liabilities. Think mumbai and Punjab are solid teams and have good chances to reach playoffs but lack the quality of KKR and RCB. Sunrisers have arguably the best bowling in the tournament, warner of course huge loss but with the form of dhawan and solid depth their batting should hold up.

Howzit guys!

Can someone shed some light on how these handicaps work in cricket?

Delhi Daredevils +1.5 Wkts / +4.5 Runs 13/20
Rajasthan Royals -1.5 Wkts / -4.5 Runs 11/10

If team that bats first wins then run handicap comes into play. If team that bats second wins then wickets cap comes into play.
eg. Delhi Daredevils posts a score of 150/6 and Rajasthan chase it down by scoring 151/3 (Rajasthan win by 7 wickets) therefore had you taken them on the minus cap. 7 wickets is superior to the -1.5 and deemed a winner.

If Delhi Daredevils posts same score 150/6 and Rajasthan fall short by scoring lets say 145/6. DD win by 5 runs therefore -4.5 runs would be a loss given that DD effectively win by +9.5 runs overall :)

Billings wasn't a liability last night! :P
Don't think Rajahstan & Delhi are rated that much by the bookies...

Agree on KKR. And when Russell hits form it puts them in a great position! Just one top seamer would have put them as a solid favourite for me.

Chenai and Mumbai are always there and there about and no team with Kohli and AB can be discounted that is for sure.

I like Hyderabad to win v Mumbai today in a choice game. Feel they have a pretty good edge in the bowling lineup with Khan and Al Hasan, as long as their top order batsman can do enough they should get the win.

KKR v DD
KKR may have the slightly better squad but Gambhir is streets ahead of Karthik in the captaincy stakes.

DD to win @ 12/10
Top KKR bat Karthik @ 13/2 ( Unexpectedly generous odds at BetXchange in my opinion )

MI vs RCB. Great value on under 30.5 fours in game. Both sides enjoy clearing the rope and I just think this line is a couple of 4s too high. 2 units.

DD v KXI
KXI batsmen have been scoring plenty but their bowlers have leaked runs at more than 8.5 per over. They have conceded 178 plus in each of their last three matches. This is the first match at this ground but I still fancy
1st Innings over 168.5 @ 17/20
and added
Gambhir/Roy @ 8/10
Top DD bat Pant @ 7/2 ( At least one of us has to make a bob or two Couch :lol: )

Only one for me today on the basis that this should be a 9/10 choice bet so I will take the higher odds on offer

Does anyone know if Shikhar Dawan is playing today or not for the Sunrisers?

Got Mumbai Indians in a big accumulator for today across a few different sports so hoping that they get back to winning ways at the Wankhede Stadium this afternoon
