Chennai Super Kings vs Punjab Kings Betting Tips 07/10/2021

Teams Status

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings currently sit second on the points table behind Delhi Capitals, thanks to their recent loss to the Capitals themselves.

That said, Chennai can still usurp Delhi and reclaim the top spot, if they beat Punjab in this fixture and Delhi loses their remaining game. Chennai’s superior net run rate could see them edge Delhi, in case of a points tie.

Chennai, who had started the UAE leg in brilliant form by winning four straight, have lost their way a bit recently or maybe they have taken their foot off the pedal. They are currently on a two-match losing streak, of which the defeat to top contenders Delhi was understandable but the one to Rajasthan before that was not.

Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings are one of the four teams fighting for the coveted fourth and final playoffs spot. They currently sit in fifth place but will be overtaken by one of Mumbai Indians or Rajasthan Royals, who have a game before.

Punjab have blown hot and cold since the league resumed. If they’ve won one, they’ve lost the next and vice versa. They’ve lacked consistency.

If we go by their tendency to alternate, they should win this one, since they lost their last game, which was against Royal Challengers Bangalore.

They should still be kicking at losing that last one. Chasing 165, they were 91-0 when they lost their opening wicket, of their captain KL Rahul. Of the next 55 balls, they only scored 67 more runs as the team mustered just 158 and fell short by six runs.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Aiden Markram total runs over 19.5 @ 1.832

Aiden Markram is not the most talented of batsmen to ever lace up or even come out of South Africa, but he gets his runs – even if they do not always get his teams the result. He’s had a few starts of late but has not been able to play a big knock. We believe he is due one. Again, we do not expect the world from him. Simple innings of more than 19.5 runs would serve our purpose. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Tip: Most run-outs – Chennai Super Kings @ 3.6

Chennai Super Kings are probably the oldest team in the league and boast several players well in their 30s. Faf du Plessis, MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, and Moeen Ali are the most prominent ones. Running between the wickets, this deep in the tournament, could potentially be a problem for then. Therefore, we think they could be more susceptible to run-outs than their opponents. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

Chennai have dominated Punjab in recent matches and hold a 4-1 advantage in their last five games. We’re not picking a side here but if we had to, we’d side with Chennai.
