KKR vs DC Betting Strategies

Match Winner

There are various betting markets for every IPL match on betting sites such as LeoVegas. The key strategy before betting on the match-winner market is to study both the teams beforehand, their form, their previous performance on that particular pitch, their record while batting first or second, whether its a batsman-friendly pitch or a spinner-friendly pitch (which can tilt the odds in KKR's favour).

On paper, and based on their recent record, DC will be the favourites to win this match. They were runners up last season, and in Rabada and Nortje they have one of the best bowling pairs in the league. The batting order is sustained by the evergreen Shikhar Dhawan and consistent Shreyas Iyer, while the man of the moment Rishabh Pant is another huge weapon. DC's biggest transfer this season was Steven Smith, who may just be the final piece of the puzzle that can lead Delhi to its maiden title.

Top Batsman

Before betting on the top batsman market, it is imperative that you do your research on every batsman's form, his ability to play against spin or pace, depending on the opposition's strengths, record against the opposition, and his performance in the previous match between these two teams. These factors can play a vital role to decide who wins this be in the Indian Premier League.

Top Batsman DC

DC have a very stacked top order when it comes to batting. Shikhar Dhawan was their top scorer last season and will undoubtedly be the favourite to be the top batsman in this match, followed by the ever dependable captain Shreyas Iyer and their newly acquired marquee signing Steven Smith. The in-form Rishabh Pant and big hitting foreigners Hetmyer and Stoinis make up a formidable batting line up.

Top Batsman KKR

Similarly, for Kolkata, new Indian sensation Shubhman Gill and fellow youngster Nitish Rana are the top bets to be the top batsmen of the, along with the evergreen captain Dinesh Karthik. Andre Russel is also always a threat down the middle and will surely be among the options in this market too.

Top Bowler

Before betting on the top bowler market, you should analyse the bowler's record during the current season, his record against this particular opposition, his favourite batsmen to bowl to (batsmen he has got out maximum number of times and those who struggle against him), as well as his previous match performance against this particular team. Abu Dhabi and Dubai pitches were very different from Indian pitches however, and should be taken in to account while betting on bowling.

Top Bowler DC

DC have one of the best bowling strike partnerships in the league, with South African pair Kagiso Rabada and Andre Nortje destroying batting line ups across the league. After them, its down to the brilliant spin duo of Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin to bamboozle the opposition.

Top Bowler KKR

Kolkata have historically been a team of spinners, however in recent times, their young pacers Shivam Mavi and Kamlesh Nagarkoti created havoc in the league. Couple with the big Aussie Pat Cummins, KKR have a fairly strong bowling line up. Andre Russell is another weapon in their Arsenal.

Player Betting

The player betting market is beneficial when you are confident on a particular player performing well. For example, Shreyas Iyer or Shikhar Dhawan to score more than 31.5 runs is a very attractive bet to place as he is DC's most consistent batsman. Similarly, Pat Cummins to take 2 or more wickets is also a very attractive bet as that has happened several times and he is one of the finest bowlers in the league.

Opening Partnership Betting

In this market, it is very important not only to focus on the opening batsmen's form, but also their record as a partnership, as opening partnerships require a lot of chemistry and understanding with each other.


DC have one of the best openers in the league in Shikhar Dhawan, however selecting his permanent partner is still an issue that needs to be resolved, as Prithvi Shaw is inconsistent. Ajinkya Rahane, Marcus Stoinis and Steve Smith are all possible options to open with Dhawan.


KKR's opening pairs have often rotated, with only Shubhman Gill a consistent pick. He has previously partnered Rahul Tripathi and found decent success, while Nitish Rana is also an option for that spot.

DC are one of only 3 teams to have never won the IPL title, while Kolkata Knight Riders have won the title twice, ironically under former DC captain Gautam Gambhir’s leadership. There is a lot of animosity between the fans of both these teams, which makes this rivalry extremely intense.
