Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai Super Kings Betting Tips 02/10/2021

Teams Status

Rajasthan Royals

With just three games left to play in the round-robin stage, Rajasthan Royals sit second to bottom in the standings but are still in the hunt for the hotly contested fourth and final playoffs spot.

The task ahead of them is possible but extremely difficult and would require them to be flawless from here on.

That they are in this difficult position is no bad luck or misfortune. This mess is largely their own doing as they have been pretty abysmal during the ongoing UAE leg.

They started the desert leg with a win that owed more to Punjab Kings’ last-over meltdown than anything else, and then have been totally flat over a sequence of three straight defeats.

In their last match, a defeat to RCB, they wasted a brilliant 77-run start by their openers to eventually post just 149-9 as the rest of their batting unit failed. The bowlers replicated their batters’ showing and saw their total tracked comfortably by RCB.

Chennai Super Kings

This is a dead rubber of a fixture for Chennai Super Kings but it still carries meaning. They have qualified for the playoffs but a top-two spot, which brings with it two shots at the final, isn’t secured.

Hence, we can expect the MS Dhoni-led side to give their all and field a full-strength side for at least another match.

Chennai have been superb since the league resumed. They are unbeaten in the UAE leg so far, having beaten Mumbai, Bangalore, Kolkata, and Hyderabad one by one.

They were made to work a bit hard than they’d like in their last game, against Hyderabad, when their run chase of a mere 135-run target went down to the final over but they got the job done.

CSK is the team to beat right now and looks like the strongest unit in the league. But then when are they not like this?

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: CSK to win @ 1.616

There is little value in the underdog here so we side with the favourites, who sit at the top of the league and have the best combination in the competition. It’s an easy decision, really. The play here is to back CSK to win @ 1.616 with 22Bet.

Tip: Faf du Plessis to score over 23.5 runs @ 1.832

Faf du Plessis is on a roll currently. His last three scores read 31, 43, and 43. These are not super big but are big enough to show that the former South Africa captain is in good form. We’re backing him to fetch us another double-digit score. The play here is to back him to score more than 23.5 runs @ odds of 1.832 with 22Bet.


Anything other than a dominant CSK win would be an upset here, such is the gulf in the class of both sides.
