Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Chennai Super Kings Betting Tips 24/09/2021

Teams Status

Royal Challengers Bangalore

After getting humiliated in their opening match of the UAE leg, Royal Challengers Bangalore will be hoping to do much better this time. The problem is that they now face perennial contenders and one of the hardest teams in IPL in the form of CSK.

They’d also need a much better showing from their superstar batting trio of Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Glenn Maxwell – all three of whom combined for 15 runs in the last game, against Kolkata, as their side got bundled out for just 92.

The push must come from up top from Kohli in particular. If the relinquishment of captaincy was to lift the RCB captain’s performance, it did not – at least not in the last game where he scored five off four deliveries.

Fortunately, they have such an assortment of batting talent that if anyone can bounce back after that horror showing, it’s them.

Chennai Super Kings

Chennai Super Kings got the win in their last game but they were far from in control of the match. A win over defending champions Mumbai Indians must have tasted sweet but it wasn’t without its scares.

Batting first, CSK were 24-4 at one point, and had it not been for Ruturaj Gaikwad’s heroic and unbeaten 88, CSK would have been in even deeper trouble and probably even lost.

CSK are getting a boost. Their English pacer Sam Curran has completed his mandatory six-day quarantine and is now available for selection.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: RCB to win @ 2.10

It takes big cojones to back a side after they got out for less than 100 in the last game but I guess we’re in the risk-taking mood today. What makes us lean towards RCB is that CSK themselves were not impressive in the last game. Thus, there is more value in the underdog. Also, we have trouble being sold on the idea that a side featuring Kohli, AB and Maxwell could fail twice in a row. The play here is to back Bangalore at odds of 2.10 with Bet365.

Tip: Virat Kohli total runs over 26.5 @ 1.832

Kohli’s form troubles this year are no secret. The general perception is that his batting slump is why he is relinquishing captaincy for both India and RCB. That’s a new thing for him. An old and proven thing for him is to bounce back and make his game big when placed under the magnifier. It’s taken a bit long for him this time but with the pedigree he has, it will surely happen sooner rather than later. We’re not asking the world from him. A modest cover of 26.5 runs is all we need from him. The play can be found on 22Bet.


CSK have won both their last two meetings. The one from earlier this tournament was a lopsided affair, with CSK triumphing by 69 runs. RCB batting had failed back then too. Here’s hoping for a change in fortunes.
