IPL Game 49 betting tips – Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Rajasthan

IPL

As we wind down to the end of the season, every single 2019 Indian Premier League game counts in a mad rush to the finals.

Typically, a game between last and second last would not garner much attention, but Tuesday night’s battle between Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Rajasthan Royals still has huge consequences.

With two games left to play, the 5-7 Rajasthan Royals may sit seventh out of eight, but are mathematically just one win away from a top four position.

Even the Royal Challengers Bangalore, 4-6, could still mathematically make it from this point, but would need a host of other results to go their way.

The RCB captain, Virat Kohli, will have taken a disappointing season from his men personally over the last month and will look to stamp his authority on this match.

Despite fielding incredible names like Marcus Stoinis, AB de Villiers, Kohli and Shimron Hetmyer, RCB have lost a few nail-biters and struggled to defend scores.

You can be sure that even if most see this as a dead-rubber, any team captained by Kohli will be fighting till the bitter end.

On the Rajasthan side of the equation, the Royals bring some positive form into this match and could be hitting their stride at just the right time.

The Royals have won their last two matches, and, led by former Australian captain Steve Smith, have done so with even batting performances while chasing.

The last time these two sides met, it was the Rajasthan Royals who prevailed by seven wickets with a ball to spare.

Rajasthan tweaker Shreyas Gopal ended up with a man of the match award for his handy spell of 3/12 from four overs.

Rajasthan vs RCB top run scorer betting options – IPL match 49

Royal Challengers Bangalore top bat – Virat Kohli @ +188

King Kohli has been solid without being spectacular in the 2019 IPL season, hitting one century to go with two half centuries.

Facing the disappointment of another missed finals campaign, we think there’s some value in the Indian captain delivering when others may think he’s mentally switched off.

Kohli is going to get ample opportunity to cash in at the top of the order and has form against the Royals bowlers in both the IPL and international scene.

If Kohli can’t win the IPL, expect him to still seek to make a statement ahead of the ICC World Cup next month.

Rajasthan Royals top bat – Steve Smith @ +400

The longer this tournament has gone on, the better Steve Smith has looked with bat in hand.

After back-to-back powerful half centuries, Smith has faltered in his last two outings, but with it all to play for and a finals spot on the line, will hit back against the Challengers with an extended stay in the middle.
