Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians Preview

Historically, Mumbai Indians have come out on top when these two sides meet. They’ve played each other 26 times, with MI coming out on top of 20 of those matches. Star player Quinton de Kock will be back in full force after his enforced quarantine, and he’s going to be looking to have a big game here. Kolkata Knight Riders haven’t won this fixture since a tremendous April 2019 performance, and previous to that it was an eight-game winning streak for this week’s visitors.

Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians Odds

Mumbai Indians are the bookies favourites, a pick we tend to agree with. A KKR win is priced at 21/20 while a MI victory is 20/29.

Kolkata Knight Riders v Mumbai Indians Tips

We foresee a big game for Quinton de Kock this time out. The 28-year-old South African will be at his best for the first time of the year, and he’s expected to do big things. He’s favourite to be top batsman for the visitors, and that’s a bet we’d definitely take if you’re interested in making money off this game. Should Mumbai Indians plan on retaining their IPL title for a third straight year, these are the types of games, with all due respect to KKR, that they need to be winning. We expect that there isn’t much value in betting on Rohit Sharma and co to win outright, but they’ll score the most sixes in this game as well which is priced at 5/7.
