Punjab Kings v Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview

These sides have had opposite starts to the season, with the Punjab Kings clearly showing out better to start with. SRH lost their first two of the year, while PBKS beat the Rajasthan Royals in their opening game. We’re expecting an impressive performance from the Punjab Kings, who, if you’re into your head-to-head records, you wouldn’t be backing. The Sunrisers Hyderabad have won 11 of these sides’ 16 meetings, while the Punjab Kings have won just 5. The change of name this year came along with a few new top players like Riley Meredith, Shahrukh Khan and Jhye Richardson and there is a real belief that they are believed to be ready for just the franchise’s third play-offs ever.

Punjab Kings v Sunrisers Hyderabad Odds

The Punjab Kings are looking like very minor underdogs in the 14th game of the year, coming in at a price of 20/27. The Sunrisers Hyderabad are slight favourites at the price of 20/21. If you’re risky enough to back a draw, you’ll get wide odds of 14/1. Unfortunately, we tend to advise against betting on outcomes like this. These teams have played 16 times, and to this day it’s never happened.

There are definitely people who will tell you to back SRH in this game, but we are going with the Kings. The new franchise were able to defy a stunning century by Sanju Samson on day one to get a big win, and there is a chance this will be a cracker of a game as well. We fancy Mohammed Shami to be the Punjab kings top bowler at 9/4.

Mohammed Shami to be home team’s top bowler – 9/4

We’re expecting KL Rahul to be top batsman, but this bet is a little bit wider in terms of odds. Shami is a great player, who we can definitely see having a big effect on the game.
