Waging odds: Mumbai Indians (1.72) vs Delhi Capitals (2.05)
Mumbai Indians are the waging favourites and are priced at 1.72, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹172.
Delhi Capitals are priced at 2.05 and are the underdogs. Betting ₹100 on them will earn you ₹205 if they come out as winners.
Its a battle between the table toppers and both MI and Dc have been exceptional this season so a tough fight is expected. Delhi’s batting has substantially improved and has been consistent over the matches, while Rabada and Ashwin will lead the job of defending the opposition batsmen.
On the other hand, the stupendous batting order of Mumbai can easily clock another score around 200, with their skipper Rohit, de Kock, Suryakumar and Hardik providing the massive shots. However, their game-changer is the Bumrah-Boult-Pattinson trio who are becoming a nightmare for their opponent.
It will be a close victory for the Mumbai Indians.
