<h2 style="text-align:center;">Sunrisers Hyderabad v Royal Challenger Bangalore</h2><p style="text-align:center;"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/in/indian-premier-league/sunrisers-hyderabad-vs-royal-challengers-bangalore-3726757/?mtid=6" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday 31 March 10.30, Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium</strong></a></p><p> </p><p>It’s funny the way a team’s weakness can be revealed. Take a look at the betting for top Sunrisers batsman for this contest and what do you see? International batting talent, granted. David Warner, Jonny Bairstow, Martin Guptill and Kane Williamson. But think about that for a moment. <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/sunrisers-hyderabad-ipl-2019-team-preview/89566/" target="_blank">Aren’t Sunrisers imbalanced</a>?</p><p>It is possible that only two of those will play – <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/david-warner-cricket-player-profile/89597/" target="_blank">Warner and Williamson</a> – as Sunrisers seek to correct issues which have arisen from a 1-1 start. Their middle order looks shaky and one wonders what the hell their recruitment department was doing not spending Bairstow or Guptill money on middle-order, or lower-order hitters of repute.</p><p>In short, we’re beginning to fall out of love with Sunrisers a little and they may be worth taking on here. <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank">Bet365</a> go 11/10 (2.1) about Bangalore.</p><p>Of course, we know you want more bang for your bucks on these pages. So the 7s (8.0) that Betfair and Paddy Power offer about Moeen Ali top scoring for RCB is tasty. He opened last time out. RCB might repeat the tactic. They might not. But we’re going to gamble on them showing consistency in at least one area.</p><h2><strong>Best tips for the match</strong></h2><p><em><strong>Moeen Ali top RCB bat 7/1 <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6" target="_blank">Betfair</a>, <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356" target="_blank">Paddy Power</a></strong></em></p><p> </p><h2 style="text-align:center;">Chennai Super Kings v Rajasthan Royals</h2><p style="text-align:center;"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/in/indian-premier-league/chennai-super-kings-vs-rajasthan-royals-3726758/?mtid=6" target="_blank"><strong>Sunday 31 March 14.30, MA </strong></a><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/in/indian-premier-league/chennai-super-kings-vs-rajasthan-royals-3726758/?mtid=6" target="_blank"><strong>Chidambarram</strong></a><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/in/indian-premier-league/chennai-super-kings-vs-rajasthan-royals-3726758/?mtid=6" target="_blank"><strong> Stadium</strong></a></p><p>It’s all about spin when these two sides meet on a raging tuner of the wicket in Chennai. In the tournament opener, the Super Kings knocked the stuffing out of RCB by bowling them out for just 70 with Harbhajan Singh (three wickets), Imran Tahir (three) and Ravi Jadeja (one) taking nine of the wickets to fall. In CSK’s stroll, two of their three wickets fell to spin.</p><p>This poses a major problem for Rajasthan on two fronts. For a start, Jos Buttler, has a slight weakness against tweak. Rashid Khan exposed that in their defeat by Sunrisers last time out. This robs the Royals potentially of their most potent weapon – Buttler’s power hitting in the first six overs.</p><p>The second issue is arguably more grave. They lack world-class spin options. It is in games like this where Rajasthan’s dereliction of duty at the auction is really exposed. They boast only Ish Sodhi, the Kiwi, as a significant threat.</p><p>Of course, <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/chennai-super-kings-ipl-2019-team-profile/89574/" target="_blank">Chennai </a><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/chennai-super-kings-ipl-2019-team-profile/89574/" target="_blank">are</a><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/chennai-super-kings-ipl-2019-team-profile/89574/" target="_blank"> hot </a><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/chennai-super-kings-ipl-2019-team-profile/89574/" target="_blank">favourites</a> at no better than 4/6 but there is a value punt to be had.
