Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview, Odds and Betting Tips

Ahmedabad will host another big game in the Indian Premier League this Tuesday April 27th when the Delhi Capitals and the Royal Challengers Bangalore face off. Our tipster genuinely can’t pick between these two high-flying teams, but feels there are some markets with good value.

Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers Bangalore Preview

Both of these sides will be very confident after their strong, strong starts to the season. They each have three wins apiece, with the Delhi Capitals having only lost just the one. The Delhi Capitals beat Chennai Super Kings on day two, and then lost to the Rajasthan Royals before getting back to winning ways against the Punjab Kings and Mumbai Indians. Meanwhile, the Royal Challengers got off to the perfect start winning their first few games against the Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders.

Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers Bangalore Odds

We can’t split these teams, with odds of 4/5 for a Delhi Capitals win, and 10/11 for a Royal Challengers Bangalore victory. If you’re enough of a daredevil to back a draw, you’ll get wide odds of 13/1, which we can’t recommend due to the infrequency of the result. In 25 meetings between the sides this result has happened once, eight years ago.

Delhi Capitals v Royal Challengers Bangalore Betting Tips

Over the years, these sides have squared off 25 times, with one game not coming up with a result. The Royal Challengers narrowly take the lead, having won 14 times, although their most recent one was in the 2018 season, which they swept. So with 10 wins on their resumé, which is the impetus for many bettors to pick them today. Virat Kohli is favourite to be named player of the match, and we like those 15/2 odds, while we fancy Kagiso Rabada to be the DC top bowler.

Virat Kohli to be player of the match – 15/2

He’s favourite to be named top batsman for his team, and is also high in the market to be the player of the match, which is what we’re backing Virat Kohli for this market.

Kagiso Rabada to be away team’s top bowler – 2/1

We think that if Delhi Capitals are to get the win here, the 25-year-old will need to be on his game. We expect that to be the case, and we’re backing him to be the top bowler.
