Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan Royals Betting Tips 22/04/2021

Teams Status

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Over the first three matches of the tournament, Virat Kohli’s RCB has shown different facets of their game. In the opening match against Mumbai, they demonstrated their ability to win matches that go down to the wire; against Sunrisers Hyderabad, they proved they can defend small totals; while in the win over Kolkata Knight Riders, they piled up big runs, amassing 204 and defending it with ease.

The only cause of concern, albeit a minor one, for Bangalore will be the form of their superstar and captain Virat Kohli, who has contributed scores of 33, 33 and 5 so far in his three innings and failed to truly deliver like he can. But then the tournament is young and Kohli has ample time to show his class.

In the bowling department, medium-pacer Harshal Patel has been the main man. He has picked up nine wickets in just three outings and currently leads the tournament for most wickets taken. His five-wicket haul was pivotal in the win over defending champions Mumbai Indians in tournament opener.

Rajasthan Royals: Sanju Samson’s Royals have lost two of their opening three matches, and have just two points to their name as a result. In their opening match, their bowlers bowled woefully, conceding 221 runs. Much of their batting fared little better, and had it not been for their skipper’s 119-run knock, Rajasthan would have lost by a wide margin, instead of just four runs.

In the next game, their bowlers, including Jaydev Unadkat, stepped up, restricting Delhi Capitals to just 147 but it still took their batters until last over to track down that modest target.

In their last game, Rajasthan’s bowling was poor again, allowing Chennai Super Kings 188 runs – a figure their batters did not come anywhere near.

Royal Challengers Bangalore to win @ 1.616

This is slightly more chalk than we’d like but the chances of RCB winning are pretty high. They have impressed so far in the tournament and possess hitters such as AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell, both of whom have been on song of late. One person who is a bit subdued is their captain Kohli, and if he also starts producing, then RCB will be even tougher to beat.

Top Batsman Royal Challengers Bangalore – Virat Kohli @ 3.24

And the next bet is directly related to Kohli himself. Arguably the greatest batsman of this generation, Kohli is one of those players who respond with great vengeance when in a rough patch or being targeted by critics. By his lofty standards, Kohli’s had three failures and against RCB he would be more than keen to atone for that.


Granted that RCB come with the reputation of being chokers but that’s for the play-offs and the final. During the round-robin stage you can expect them to fire on all cylinders. If nothing unforeseen happens, they should have this one in the bag.
