Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Delhi Capitals Betting Tips 08/10/2021

Teams Status

Royal Challengers Bangalore

This will be one of the two matches taking place simultaneously on Friday evening; the other being Mumbai Indians’ clash with Sunrisers Hyderabad.

With this game, the IPL 2021’s round-robin stage would conclude and we’ll have our final line-up of the four playoffs teams.

RCB, of course, lost their last game to the lowly Sunrisers Hyderabad so they’d want to get back to winning ways before the playoffs begin.

The RCB management has faced criticism of late for expecting a bit too much from their 37-year-old master blaster AB de Villiers. In the defeat to Hyderabad, De Villiers was tasked with finding two sixes off the final four balls, which he couldn’t. It triggered the debate whether a batsman of his caliber, who is in the twilight of his career, should be sent at number six.

It remains to be seen if the RCB management would change their ways and promote the South African, who has finally looked a bit overwhelmed in this IPL after years of high-class service.

Delhi Capitals

Delhi Capitals sit pretty at the top of the standings with 20 points to their name. They may lose the spot, depending on how second-placed Chennai Super Kings do in their final match against Punjab Kings today.

Delhi’s rise to the top has been possible, thanks to their win over none other than CSK in their last game.

The two teams are widely expected to meet at some point in the playoffs, and Delhi demonstrated their superiority with a win in what was effectively a dress rehearsal for a more important game.

In a low-scoring match, Delhi restricted Chennai to 136-5 and got to the target in the final over, three wickets to spare. The bowlers, including Axar Patel, did their job but Shimron Hermyer’s clutch 28 off 18 at the death cannot be underplayed.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Delhi Capitals to win at 2.05

If CSK lose their match, Delhi Capitals may not have any motivation left to try harder as their status as the round-robin stage winners will be sealed. But if not, then Delhi will give their usual 100 percent and at full strength, they are a better and more balanced side than RCB. Thus, if CSK loses then all bets are off. But until they don’t, the recommended play is to back Delhi Capitals to win this one @ odds of 2.05 with Betway.

Tip: Glenn Maxwell total runs over 21.5 @ 1.832

Glenn Maxwell is in superb form and we will continue to ride his train for as long as it marches ahead. The man has three half-centuries and a 40 in his last four outings. What’s another 21.5 odd for him? The play can be found on 22Bet.

Conclusion

Delhi Capitals had their winning streak against RCB snapped in their last clash, which came back in April. Even that was a slim win by one run. We expect Delhi to bounce back and perhaps start another streak.
