Islamabad United vs Multan Sultans Betting Tips 19/06/2021

Teams Status

Multan Sultans

By the time Multan Sultans take the field later tonight, their playoffs fate may already be decided. That’s because before their clash with Islamabad, Karachi and Quetta will be facing each other. If Karachi fail to beat Quetta, Multan will be through automatically, rendering their final game with Islamabad a dead rubber.

Even if Karachi win and reach parity with other three teams that with 10 points, Multan’s run rate is so high (1.192, thanks to Quetta) that they may still qualify without having to beat Islamabad tonight.

From a different perspective, a dead rubber it may be, but the match between Islamabad and Multan could potentially be a dress rehearsal for PSL final as both are the form teams right now and could very well go all the way.

Islamabad United

Islamabad have emerged as a true juggernaut after getting beat by Lahore Qalandars on the opening night of the Abu Dhabi leg. Despite missing several stars at various points, such has been the incredible strength of the capital city side that they have notched four straight wins and now sit at the top of the PSL points table.

They’ve lost just twice all season and have grown stronger and fiercer as the tournament has progressed. In their last game, they amassed a gargantuan 247-2 against a decent bowling unit of Peshawar Zalmi, sending shockwaves through the league that they are serious about capturing their third PSL title when no one team has won more than one.

It was expected that they would relent and relax a bit in their match against Peshawar last time out but the Shadab Khan-led side did not take a breather. In fact, it did more than before. Will they do it tonight? Not so likely now, as the playoffs are to begin after a day’s break anyway.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Multan Sultans to Win @2.20

Both teams are on a roll but Multan Sultans have transformed themselves into a totally different unit since the league resumed this month in the desert. They are yet to lose a game in Abu Dhabi and their recent wins have been by astronomical margins of 80 and 110 runs. Not that Islamabad are not just as impressive, if not more. But Multan just have that unblemished record in the UAE and the way their form players are performing, they might just sneak another win tonight.

Tip: Total Runs Over 321.5 @1.8

The way both of these teams’ batsmen are performing, the spread seems a bit on the low side. Mind you, the spread was not covered in their last meeting but that was in Pakistan. Multan and Islamabad batsmen have caught fire in UAE and so basing our predictions on how they fared earlier in the tournament will be a tad unfair and naïve. The play here is for the two sides to explode with the bat at the combined expense of their bowlers.


It is often said that there is nothing to choose between these two sides. As clichéd as it is, this is absolutely true in this matchup. Any of these two can win tonight, provided that both are playing to their full strength.
