Kolkata Knight Riders vs Sunrisers Hyderabad Betting Tips 03/10/2021

Teams Status

Sunrisers Hyderabad

Sunrisers Hyderabad have been out of playoffs contention for quite some time now but their bowling has clicked of late. They beat Rajasthan Royals last Monday before almost beating league leaders Chennai Super Kings in their last outing.

A win in this fixture would mean nothing for Hyderabad but it could potentially dent Kolkata’s playoffs hopes – something Hyderabad had done last year too.

Apart from playing spoilers, the only real motivation left for Hyderabad will be to try out options for future editions of the tournament.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata’s record in recent years of sealing playoffs spot has not been very promising, which is why they would want to keep things under their control with a win over Hyderabad.

They currently sit in fourth place on the points table, with 10 points to their name after a dozen games. They hold the coveted fourth spot but they cannot be complacent, considering three other teams are hot on their heels.

One relief this time, though, is that their net run rate among the fourth place-chasers is the best.

KKR, however, have other problems. Andre Russell and Lockie Ferguson are nursing injuries and it’s unclear whether either would play this game. Furthermore, their captain Eoin Morgan has been completely out of sorts since the league resumed.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Kolkata to win @ 1.635

Kolkata have injury problems as well as a captain that is doing nothing. Even then we like them over Hyderabad in this match. This is primarily because KKR have found new options in the absence of injured ones. Venkatesh Iyer and Varun Chakravarthy are two such names. Therefore, the play here is to back KKR to win @ 1.635 with 1xbet.

Tip: Eoin Morgan to score over 15.5 runs @ 1.832

For the record, here is out open admission that Morgan is in woeful form and his highest score across four innings since the restart has been a paltry eight. That said, his alarming dip also means that the spread on him is of just 15.5 runs. You literally have to be at the crease for a few minutes and this spread gets covered. This is no judgment on whether he is damaged goods or not, but we feel Morgan, after all his experience, can find enough remnants of ability in him to score 15.5 runs or more. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

KKR have won four of the last five meetings between these sides, including all of the last three. The trend should hold if all goes according to plan.
