The Mumbai Indians can land decent IPL 2019 odds thanks to their results history and an expert fast-bowling attack.

<h2><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Mumbai Indians 2019 Team Profile</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><strong>Coach:</strong> Mahela Jayawardene<br /><strong>Captain:</strong> Rohit Sharma<br /><strong>IPL Title Wins:</strong> 3<br /><strong>IPL Play-off Appearances:</strong> 7<br /><strong>IPL Title Odds:</strong> 6/1 (7.0)</span></span></p><h2><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Trend Spotting</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Will the Mumbai Indians team 2019 repeat the trend of previous squads and follow a bad year with a good one? After a disappointing fourth-placed finish in 2012 they won the title in 2013. The year after that? They finished fourth. Then they won it again. In 2016 they slipped back to fifth before triumphing in 2017. So far, so predictable. A fifth-placed finish last season surely means glory awaits them, right? Also, don’t expect a fast start. Ordinarily they take almost half a season to get their plans and prep sorted, meaning they look like they’re going to struggle to get among the play-off race. But they haul themselves towards the correct part of the ladder in the end.</span></span></p><h2><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">All-round Power</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">One thing we can be sure of the Mumbai Indians squad this season is they have players who can thrive with either bat or ball. In Hardik Pandya and his brother, Krunal, they have two of the most sought-after players. An India international is worth his weight in gold in IPL. An Indian international who is dangerous with bat and ball? Priceless. And in Mumbai Indians squad they have the top two. For good measure, Mumbai also boast wily old stager Yuvraj Singh, the man the Pandya brothers essentially replaced in the national team.</span></span></p><h2><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Fast men</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Jasprit Bumrah, the best death bowler in the world, is the spearhead of a fine pace attack. He claimed 17 wickets last term, seven off top spot in the overall wickets list. Rather surprisingly, though, Hardik trumped him with one more. Add in New Zealand’s Mitchell McClenaghan, who picked up 14, and Krunal with 12 then you have a speedy bowling roster ready to land IPL odds.</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><img alt src="" style="width:600px;height:338px;" /></span></span></p><h2><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;">Mumbai Indians 2019 Squad Breakdown</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><strong>Coach:</strong> Mahela Jayawardene<br /><strong>Captain:</strong> Rohit Sharma<br /><strong>Openers:</strong> Rohit Sharma, Evin Lewis, Quinton de Kock, Anmol Singh<br /><strong>Middle-order Batsmen:</strong> Suryakumar Yadav, Siddhesh Lad<br /><strong>Wicketkeepers:</strong> Ishan Kishan, Aditya Tare<br /><strong>Allrounders:</strong> Hardik Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Krunal Pandya, Ben Cutting, Yuvraj Singh, Pankaj Jaiswal<br /><strong>Wristspinners:</strong> Mayank Markande, Rahul Chahar<br /><strong>Fingerspinners:</strong> Anukul Roy, Jayant Yadav<br /><strong>Fast Bowlers:</strong> Jasprit Bumrah, Adam Milne, Mitchell McClenaghan, Jason Behrendorff, Lasith Malinga, Barinder Sran, Rasi Salam</span></span></p><p><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><strong>Read More:</strong> <a href="" target="_blank" title="Full IPL 2019 Betting Guide">Full IPL 2019 Betting Guide</a></span></span></p><h2>Related articles:</h2><ul> <li><strong><a data-reactid="." href="" target="_blank">Chennai Super Kings: IPL 2019 Team Profile</a></strong></li> <li><strong><a href="" target="_blank" title="Royal Challengers Bangalore: IPL 2019 Team Profile">Royal Challengers Bangalore: IPL 2019 Team Profile</a></strong></li> <li><strong><a data-reactid="." href="" target="_blank">Rajasthan Royals: IPL 2019 Team Profile</a></strong></li></ul>
