The Royals won the first game by 15 runs and would be hoping for a similar result. They defeated Punjab Kings in the last game by 6 wickets and it was their 7th win of the season. They are eyeing to strengthen their playoffs hopes with yet another win in the campaign. Jos Buttler is enjoying a dream run this season and he is on top of the Orange Cap list with 618 runs from 11 matches.
Meanwhile, DC need a lot of work to do if they are to make a fourth straight playoff appearance. After their heavy 91-run loss to the defending champions Chennai Super Kings, all the Rishabh Pant-led side can do is to ensure that they bag wins in the remaining fixture. The players would now be hoping to deliver well on the pitch as a unit after having an off-day in the previous fixture where they were completely outplayed in all departments.
WAGING ODDS: RR (1.85) Vs DC (1.95)
RR are the favorites and are priced at 1.85, meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹185.
DC are the underdogs and priced at 1.95 meaning if you bet ₹100 on them and if they win the match, you’ll be making ₹195
The teams would not be wishing to put runs on the board taking the dew factor into consideration later on in the day. The pitch might become good for the batters in the second half and as the odds suggest, the Royals are likely to clinch a victory.
Prediction: RR to win the match.
