IPL Tips and Predictions: Mumbai Indians v Chennai Super Kings

News Content

What’s up Cricket fans?

The IPL has started with a bang and Week 1 gave us some nail-biting and exciting finishes.

We did end up cashing one ticket as the reigning champions got the better of the Super Kings in the opening game of the season.

This week we’ll be covering a historic IPL rivalry game and hopefully cashing more tickets for you guys, so let’s get into it!


MI & CSK are arguably the two best teams of the tournament combining nine IPL titles between them.

They have met each other in the finals four times too which has made their encounters the most anticipated games of each season.

CSK have started their season strong having won & lost a game each while displaying good well-round cricket.

Contrarily, MI have had the most one-sided defeats in their opening games and seem to have clear holes in their squad which could be exploited as the season goes on.

As classic rivalries go, regardless of the recent form the two teams bring out the best in each other when they collide, and we can expect another entertaining game this weekend.

Pitch & Weather Report

We're back at the famous Wankhede stadium for this clash.

Given the small ground, we can expect a run-fest here in an entertaining high-scoring encounter.

Due is always a factor while chasing at Wankhede stadium so the advantage will be held by the chasing team.

Betting Tips

MI still have some figuring out to do with their best playing XI and with a weak bowling line-up we think CSK can exploit this through their explosive batting.

We'll back the Super Kings to get the better of MI in this one.

CSK have been gaining confidence from the form of Ruturaj Gaikwad and while he is making a great case for a Team India call-out, we think he will have a great game again.

Selection- Chennai Super Kings (Winner) @1.84

Selection- Over 25.5 (1st Innings- Ruturaj Gaikwad Total) @1.85
