IPL match 52 betting – Kings XI Punjab vs Kolkata Knight Riders tips

IPL 2019 match 52

TWO teams sitting on the fringe of the 2019 Indian Premier League top four and hoping for a series of miracles to make finals will meet on Friday night at Punjab Cricket Association Stadium.

The 52nd match of the 2019 IPL season will feature two desperate sides, knowing that nothing less than a win will do.

The bookmakers can’t split them in head-to-head betting and with good reason — the form has been consistently inconsistent from both throughout the season.

Both of these sides have explosive batting lineups, particularly Kolkata, which has topped 200 three times this campaign, including an enormous 232/2 in their most recent outing.

With in-form Australian opener Chris Lynn softening attacking opening bowlers and explosive West Indian Andre Russell putting on the finishing touches, the Knight Riders have given bowlers nightmares this year.

On the other side of the coin, the Kings XI have KL Rahul and Chris Gayle taking it in turns to have an impact at the top of the order and captain Ravi Ashwin captains with discipline and leads by example with the ball.

Who wins this all-important match? Let’s take a look at the best odds:

Kings XI Punjab most runs betting tip – IPL match 52

Nicholas Pooran @ +500

The young West Indian keeper has found some form in his two most recent outings with scores of 46 and 21 and, because of a lean run prior to that, is still offering some juicy odds.

If the Kings XI top order fails, Pooran is going to come in at number five in the order and get a big opportunity to spend some time at the crease.

Pooran has the talent to be a world-class player. Can he turn his glimpses of form into something more consistent?

Kolkata Knight Riders most runs betting tip – IPL match 52

Andre Russell @ +350

After we told you to back Russell for most runs in match 43 last week, the West Indian came up trumps, batting higher in the order and smashing an incredible 80 from 40 balls.

We think Kolkata would be mad not to keep Russell in the top four and if the form holds true, no bowling lineup will be able to contain him.

The odds on offer are worth having a dip at here.

Kings XI Punjab to win: -111.11 at 5Dimes

We’re expecting a run-fest with these two powerful batting line-ups and in a game that’s hard to split, we think the Kings XI Punjab home ground advantage will be just enough to get them over the line.
