Cricket IPL Betting Tips

Betting Tips:

  • Virat Kohli will score a 50 and above in this match.

Betting Odds: Royal Challengers Bangalore 1.64; Punjab Kings 2.15 LeoVegas

Though the playing eleven for Bangalore isn't final, we expect Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers to be in the team. Maxwell is expected to repeat his performance against Punjab as well. Watch out for Padikkal. 

His 70 runs in the CSK went in vain, but Padikkal would definitely score big against Punjab. We think Harshal Patel would be retained in the RCB squad. He had a crucial role to play in the MI match. 

RCB vs KXIP Predictions 2021 

Though Punjab is a batting heavy side, it has some serious deficiencies. Nicholas Pooran isn't in form, and the rest of the bowling side has some serious gaps. However, Punjab can still bounce back in the tournament.
