KKR vs MI predictions

Standing in the 8th position in the league, MI have lost two games getting into this match as compared to KKR's 2-1 record. However, it has been a common occurrence for Mumbai to lose several of their first few games, only to bag winning streaks in the matches to come. With that in mind, MI look to be the stronger team.

MI vs KKR who will win?

MI vs KKR is a very fierce rivalry in the IPL. However, MI have a dominant head to head record against their Kolkatan counterparts, with 22 wins in 29 matches. MI has also won 5 titles in the IPL, whereas KKR has only won 2 in the past.

KKR vs MI Betting Strategies

There are various betting markets for every IPL match on most betting sites in India. The key strategy before betting on KKR vs MI matches 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.

Who will Win

MI would be the heavy favourites to win this match, based on their team strength and current form. On paper, the teams are no match for each other, and unless there is a huge upset, or a stunning individual performance or two from KKR's squad, we believe Mumbai Indians will get another easy win against their rivals.

Top Batsman Mumbai Indians

Both these teams possess some brilliant batsmen in their ranks. Mumbai Indians have one of the best opening pairs in the league in Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan. Both are likely to be the top 2 favourites to be the top batsmen for MI, followed by the ever consistent Suryakumar Yadav, and the explosive all-rounders Keiron Pollard.

Top Batsman Kolkata Knight Riders

Similarly, for Kolkata, Venkatesh Iyer and Nitish Rana are the top bets to be the top batsmen from KKR, along with the captain Shreyas Iyer. Andre Russel is also always a threat down the middle and will surely be among the options in this market too.

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, his record against the opposition, and his performance in the previous KKR vs MI match. These factors can play a vital role to decide who wins this bet.

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 a maximum number of times and those who struggle against him), as well as his previous match performance against this particular team.

Top Bowler MI

Mumbai Indians have one of the best bowling attacks in the IPL, Jasprit Bumrah. Then comes the all-rounder Kieron Pollard who is as handy with the ball as they are with the bat.

Top Bowler KKR

Kolkata have historically been a team of spinners. However, in recent times, their young pacers Shivam Mavi and Kunil Narine are prospected to create havoc in the league. Coupled with the big Aussie Pat Cummins, KKR has a fairly strong bowling lineup. 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, Rohit Sharma to score more than 31.5 runs is a very attractive bet to place as when he gets going, not many can stop him. Similarly, Jasprit Bumrah to take 2 or more wickets is also a very attractive bet as that has happened several times.

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. Below, you will find more info about MI vs KKR opening partnership betting.

MI Opening Partnership

MI have one of the best opening pairings in the league, with Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan believed to be able to destroy teams at will. Both are exceptionally gifted batsmen who can also hit some huge shots.

KKR Opening Partnership

KKR's opening pairs have often rotated, and it becomes especially unpredictable in this 15th edition of the IPL.

KKR vs MI Head to Head

These two teams are fierce IPL rivals ever since the first edition back in 2008 when India's 2 biggest personalities - Sachin Tendulkar and Saurav Ganguly used to lead these franchises respectively. Two of India’s largest metropolitan cities, Kolkata and Mumbai have always competed for a lot of different things, but IPL tops the list. 

The KKR vs MI head to head record has been heavily dominated by Mumbai Indians, who have won 22 out of the 29 matches played, while KKR has only won 7. In the previous season between these two teams, each earned one win to add to their record.

Where do Mumbai Indians play their home games ?

The Mumbai Indians play their home matches at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, the same ground where Team India famously lifted the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2011.

Where do Kolkata Knight Riders play their home games ?

KKR play their home matches at Eden Garden, which was the largest cricket stadium in the country before the construction of the Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium in Ahmedabad.

When was the last time KKR won the IPL title ?
