Chennai Super Kings v Sunrisers Hyderabad Preview

If you’re an historian, you’ll be backing the Chennai Super Kings this weekend based on their record this season and the head-to-head stats. The teams have had very different starts to the year, so the favourites tag for the Super Kings is probably fair. CSK have strong batsmen, and after losing in their first game of the year, have amassed a strong record including three wins. Meanwhile the Sunrisers Hyderabad struggled early this year, losing three on the bounce before their first win against the Punjab Kings.

Chennai Super Kings v Sunrisers Hyderabad Odds

The Chennai Super Kings are favourites on account of their early form, coming in at a price of 20/29. The Sunrisers Hyderabad, who recently just got in the win column, are 21/20 underdogs. This match has never ended in a draw, so we would recommend not looking for too long at the wide 15/1 price on that outcome.

Chennai Super Kings v Sunrisers Hyderabad Tips

We’ve taken a look at the data, and it seems as if the Chennai Super Kings are favourites. CSK have won this fixture 10 of the 14 times they’ve played. They’ve played eight times in the last three years, with the record being 6-2 for CSK. We like Faf du Plessis as man-of-the-match at 9/1 and Jonny Bairstow to be top batsman for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Jonny Bairstow to be Sunrisers Hyderabad’ top batsman – 9/4

The 31-year-old Englishman has been top batsman twice already this season, and we fancy him to continue that form in this one.

Faf du Plessis to be man-of the-match – 9/1

The 36-year-old South African is one of the best in the world, and many consider him to be the Super Kings’ most impressive player. He’s expected to have a big showing this time out, and we have him as favourite.
