Mumbai Indians vs Chennai Super Kings Betting Tips 01/05/2021

Teams Status

Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians finally clicked with the bat on Thursday night, chasing down Rajasthan Royals’ 171 with ease, seven wickets in hand and nine balls to spare. Quinton de Kock, too, finally delivered, scoring an unbeaten 70 off 50 as Mumbai piled up their highest score of the tournament so far in what was also their first run chase of the event.

The result ended a two-game slide for Mumbai and separated them from the trio of lowly teams stuck with four points each.

The only thing of concern for Mumbai in that game was their captain Rohit Sharma’s lethargic 14 off 17. The Mumbai captain has had decent scores this IPL but none of his knocks have been truly match-winning.

Chennai Super Kings

A night before Mumbai’s victory over Rajasthan, Chennai Super Kings beat Sunrisers Hyderabad in exactly the same way. They chased down the same target, with same number of wickets in hand and same number of balls to spare.

It was CSK’s fifth straight victory, having started the tournament with a defeat to Delhi Capitals.

It makes CSK the form team of the tournament and even though two other teams have the same number of points as them, CSK’s outstanding run rate of 1.475 has given them the right to sit at the top of the points table.

It has been a remarkable turnaround for the Super Kings, who missed the playoffs last year but just six months later look a different, rejuvenated side under MS Dhoni, who credits a “change in attitude” for the transformation.

Tipster’s Angel

Tip: Chennai Super Kings to win @ 2.13

Granted that Mumbai have dominated CSK of late in their head-to-head matches (4-1), it is still odd of oddsmakers to install the reigning champions as massive favourites. CSK are on a roll and have lost just once all season. If they win their sixth straight, no one should be surprised. They have several in-form players after all.

Tip:  Total runs in match over 335.5 @ 1.832

Both these teams are coming off successful run chases of 171 runs. It means that their batting is clicking and also means that the team batting second is not necessarily fazed by having to chase big totals.

Granted that both their matches last season did not produce the aggregate we envisage them to go above here, we still think that it’s the bet to make.


In overall head-to-head, Mumbai have sort of dominated Chennai, winning 18 of their 30 matches and losing just 12, for a victory percentage of 60%. While that sounds impressive, we think a bit of course correction is long overdue.
