Ed Hawkins @cricketbetting chases down some chunky odds for Saturday’s IPL 2019 double header

<h2>Rajasthan Royals v Mumbai Indians, Jaipur</h2><p><strong>Saturday 20 April, 11.30</strong></p><p>With Chennai Super Kings suffering a surprise defeat by Sunrisers Hyderabad last time out, Mumbai Indians can sense an opportunity to take charge of IPL 2019. And they will be grateful they face a <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/rajasthan-royals-ipl-2019-team-profile/89570/" target="_blank" title="Royals Team Profile">Royals team</a> who appear to be destined to finish bottom this year.</p><p>The Indians, given their five wins from the last six, are hot favourites. Quelle Surprise. They are no better than 4/6 (1.67) with William Hill. The Royals get a 5/4 (2.22) quote from Betfair, Coral and Ladbrokes.</p><p>There’s not a huge amount of fun to be had at those small numbers anyway so, as usual, we will look for something chunkier. How about a gamble on one of the Pandya brothers to go big? On a sluggish wicket, Mumbai might need late acceleration at the end – as they did against Delhi – and these two fit the bill at big prices for top bat.</p><h2>Best tips for the match</h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a" target="_blank" title="IPL 2019 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Krunal Pandya top Mumbai bat 12/1 Betfred</strong></em></a></p><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a" target="_blank" title="IPL 2019 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Hardik Pandya top Mumbai bat 10/1 Betfred</strong></em></a></p><p> </p><h2>Delhi Capitals v Kings XI Punjab, Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium</h2><p><strong>Saturday 20 April, 15.30</strong></p><p>Just when it looked like Delhi were going to push on for the play-offs, they rain into the Mumbai juggernaut. They were well-beaten by the Indians on Thursday and were once again left cursing their slow, low Kotla wicket.</p><p>It just doesn’t help them at all. Packed with strokemakers and flair, their batsmen get bogged down outside the powerplay and they collapse. It was another stinker of a batting effort in the chase.</p><p>The good news here is that they come up against a <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/kings-xi-punjab-ipl-2019-team-profile/89572/" target="_blank" title="Kings XI Punjab team profile">Kings XI Punjab team</a> who might also find the going tough. Sure, they will go off quickly thanks to the likes of KL Rahul and Chris Gayle but there’s little else for Delhi to worry about.</p><p>For that reason, getting with the side batting first could pay dividends. A total of 160 should be enough. Delhi are 5/6 (1.83) with Betfair and Kings are even money (2.0) with the rest.</p><p>We are expecting spin to be important again and that means Mujeeb ur Rahman could come to the fore for Kings. We like the 7/2 (4.5) that William Hill and Betfred offer about him taking top bowler. Ravi Ashwin, in great form, will be tough to beat, though, at 10/3 (4.33) with Betfred.</p><h2>Best tips for the match</h2><p><a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a" target="_blank" title="IPL 2019 Betting Odds"><em><strong>Mujeeb top Kings bowler 7/2 William Hill, Betfred</strong></em></a></p>
