Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals Preview
Mumbai Indians have had a rocky start to the year, and both of these sides have actually lost two games this season already. Royal Challengers Bangalore were big underdogs on opening day, but they and the Delhi Capitals have both scored big wins over the 2020 play-off winners. Meanwhile, The Rajasthan Royals lost twice – to the Chennai Super Kings and the Punjab Kings, who have not looked great this year. They beat Delhi Capitals, who beat Mumbai Indians, but that cricket maths won’t do you right at the bookmakers.
Mumbai Indians v Rajasthan Royals Odds
The Mumbai Indians are looking pretty good for their favourites tag in this game, coming in at a price of 10/19. The RR are underdogs at the price of 27/20. If you’re enough of a daredevil to back a draw, you’ll get wide odds of 14/1, which we can’t recommend due to the unlikeliness of the result in this sport, including no draws ever in this fixture.

These sides have faced each other 23 times, and have identical win rates of 11 a piece. In the last three years, the Mumbai Indians have only won once, so historians may be going for the underdogs here.
