Sunrisers Hyderabad are the underdogs and are priced at 2.05, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹205.
Mumbai Indians are priced at 1.72 and are the favourites. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹172 if they come out as winners.
In their previous faceoff in the current IPL, MI won by 34 runs. They are into the playoffs so the results of this match will not be having any impact, except the players aiming to improve their personal stats.

It will be a victory for Mumbai Indians.
