Ill-balanced Rajasthan Royals could find IPL 2019 odds are not big enough come end of the tournament.

<h2><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;">Rajasthan Royals 2019 Team Profile</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Coach:</strong> Paddy Upton<br /><strong>Captain:</strong> Ajinkya Rahane<br /><strong>IPL Title Wins:</strong> 1<br /><strong>IPL Play-off Appearances:</strong> 4<br /><strong>IPL Title Odds:</strong> 6/1 (7.0)</span></span></p><h2><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;">Season of struggle</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;">The Royals won the inaugural title in 2008. That seems a long time ago. They have never lived up to the trailblazing start and the franchise was ignominiously banned for two years after a corruption probe. They managed to finish fourth last season despite the hiatus but they could find it hard to replicate that. Indeed, a Royal flush seems out of the question with the Rajasthan Royals squad looking limited and poorly thought through. Rajasthan Royals 2019 could be synonymous with failure.</span></span></p><h2><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;">So what’s the problem?</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;">They’re expensive. Not in a good way. They have picked a clutch of bowlers who, although occasionally dangerous, could disappear into the stands. Aaron, Thomas and Archer are all high-octane but it seems highly unlikely they will be able to contain batting teams. For the notebook: bet against this lot when they’re defending anything more than 155.</span></span></p><h2><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;">The Buttler did it</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;">Jos Buttler, the England batsman, would be classed as a shrewd bit of business…if he was available for the tournament. He won’t be. He will get the Royals off to quick starts in the powerplay overs and betting him for individual runscorer honours in each match he plays should pay off. </span></span></p><p><img alt src="https://ms.sbrfeeds.com/redirect-proxy/redirect/?url=http://www.digitalsporty.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/Rajasthan-Royals-Official-Sponsors-List-Partners-Brand-Ambassador-Logos-On-Jerseys.jpg" style="width:600px;height:315px;" /></p><h2><span style="font-size:16px;"><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><font color="#222222">Rajasthan Royals </font>Squad 2019 Breakdown</span></span></h2><p><span style="font-family:arial,helvetica,sans-serif;"><span style="font-size:16px;"><strong>Openers:</strong> Ajinkya Rahane, Rahul Tripathi, Manan Vohra, Jos Buttler<br /><strong>Middle-order Batsmen:</strong> Steven Smith, Aryaman Birla,<br /><strong>Wicketkeepers:</strong> Sanju Samson, Prashant Chopra<br /><strong>Allrounders:</strong> Ben Stokes, Stuart Binny, Jofra Archer, K Gowtham, Liam Livingstone, Ashton Turner, Shubham Ranjane, Shash Singh, Riyan Parag, Mahipal Lomror,<br /><strong>Wristspinners:</strong> Shreyas Gopal, Midhun S, Ish Sodhi<br /><strong>Fast Bowlers:</strong> Dhawal Kulkarni, Jayden Unadkat, Varun Aaron, Oshane Thomas </span></span></p><p><strong>Read More:</strong> <a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/2019-indian-premier-league-complete-ipl-betting-guide/89535/" target="_blank" title="Full IPL 2019 Betting Guide">Full IPL 2019 Betting Guide</a></p><h2><span style="color:rgb(51, 51, 51);font-size:29.7px;">Related articles:</span></h2><ul> <li><strong><a data-reactid=".0.2.0.0.1.0.0.0.2.1.0" href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/mumbai-indians-ipl-2019-team-profile/89567" target="_blank">Mumbai Indians: IPL 2019 Team Profile</a></strong></li> <li><strong><a data-reactid=".0.2.0.0.1.0.0.0.2.1.0" href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/sunrisers-hyderabad-ipl-2019-team-preview/89566" target="_blank">Sunrisers Hyderabad: IPL 2019 Team Profile</a></strong></li> <li><strong><a data-reactid=".0.2.0.0.1.0.0.0.2.1.0" href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/tips/more-sports/chennai-super-kings-ipl-2019-team-profile/89574" target="_blank">Chennai Super Kings: IPL 2019 Team Profile</a></strong></li></ul>
