Both sides are on either end of the spectrum - KKR are in shambles, especially after their terrible loss in the encounter against Delhi. But on the other end, there is Royal Challengers Bangalore, a side that has learnt how to win and more importantly, be in the top half of the table, this season.
Kolkata Knight Riders total to be over 23.5 runs at fall of the first wicket @1.83
Kolkata Knight Riders have got themselves off to an edgy start, with just two wins in the first half of the season. In their last five clashes this season, the franchise have won just one game, coming against the terrible Punjab Kings outfit. But more importantly, it is their opening partnership that has come under the scanner, time and again. Shubman Gill hasn’t fired and Nitish Rana hasn’t been too consistent. Their head coach Brendon McCullum suggested that there could be personnel changes, at the top. Last season, in this particular fixture, KKR endured a tough loss, averaging 10.80 in the powerplay, losing five wickets. However, thus far this season, the Men in Purple and Gold have scored 298 runs, losing 12 wickets, which accounts for 24.83 runs at the fall of their first wicket. This is where the bet gets its backing from, KKR’s partnership at the top of the order, which has consistently scored over the 23.5 run mark, which at 1.83X returns, sounds appealing. So head on to BetBarter and invest in the market for quick returns.
Royal Challengers Bangalore to score under 13.5 boundaries @2.04
RCB boundary count at the venue - 9, 10
Since 2019, this particular fixture has been a run-feast, for the Royal Challengers Bangalore side, who have scored 868 runs in the last five games, averaging 57.87 runs for every wicket. More importantly, they have also scored 85 boundaries, averaging 17 boundaries every game. But past is past, it has no relevance clearly with the way teams have performed this season. RCB might have well topped the table at a lot of points in this season’s IPL but that doesn’t quite equate to them scoring too many boundaries. In fact, this season, the Men in Red and Gold have scored just 94 boundaries, ranking fifth in the league, at an average of 13.42 boundaries every game. Now that’s where you would have to glance at the market, RCB to score under 13.5 boundaries, which certainly has been the trend thus far in the season. Okay, hang on, I will give you more reasons to trust the market. At this venue (Ahmedabad), RCB have scored just 19 boundaries, the lowest among teams that have played at the venue. Moreso, in their two clashes here, RCB have scored nine and ten boundaries respectively, averaging 9.5 boundaries every game. So for all those reasons, you should trust the market, with BetBarter for a 2.04X return. Don’t forget!!!
RCB to score more sixes than KKR @2.08
Enough of trolling RCB, yes, they haven’t scored boundaries, a lot of them at least and yes they have lost two out of their last three games but that doesn’t mean RCB are not worth it. In fact, this market is where you should trust RCB even though they have scored fewer sixes than their counterparts KKR in the IPL season. But at this venue, they are just two sixes away from being the side with the most sixes. In fact, in their last two games at the venue, RCB have scored 15 sixes. Now they might have lost their last game but even then, they hit six sixes, with a batting depth till Harshal Patel, who smacked two sixes. In their earlier clash, against Delhi, at the same venue, RCB scored nine sixes, five more than their opposition. Even in their struggle, they hit only two sixes less than PBKS in the last clash. However, KKR, have just hit nine sixes at the venue, joint-lowest alongside Delhi Capitals. In KKR’s last two clashes, only once has KKR breached the seven-six mark, against Delhi. In their other clash, the Men in Gold and Purple only hit two sixes. Even last season, in their first clash, RCB had smashed eight sixes, six coming off the bat of AB de Villiers. KKR, however, could only score two, which didn't improve a lot since then. So that should be enough to seal this market and in return, get 2.08 times the returns. BetBarter is the place, in case you had already forgotten.
