The Four Title Contenders:

Mumbai Indians finished the league stage of the Indian Premier League at the top of the table with 20 points from 10 games including an impressive win in their final league game against the Kolkata Knight Riders given they had made five changes to their side.

Kolkata also qualified for the playoffs but they were edged out to the fourth position after the Rising Pune Supergiant won their last league encounter against the Kings XI Punjab to make it to the playoffs and finish second.

The defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad finished third, with 17 points, which means they will need to take same route they had last season if they want to defend the title.

Latest IPL 2017 Betting Odds:

Not surprisingly, the Mumbai Indians are favourites to win the title at this stage. Not only were they the first team to qualify for the playoffs but they also finished atop of the table and now have two chances to make the final.

Bookmakers are offering 11/8 for their IPL title victory, which is followed the second-placed Rising Pune Supergiant, who are 15/8. Pune’s problem will be the absence of their talisman all-rounder Ben Stokes, who returned back to the UK for national duties and that leaves them a tad vulnerable.

Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad are both 11/2 to win the title from here on.

Our favourites:

With the teams so evenly matched it’s tough to call out a winner but what we would do is to avoid accepting such short odds for the Rising Pune Supergiant in the absence of Stokes.

While we understand this is a team game, Stokes’ presence has really lifted the side immensely and his absence might not help. On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians look like a team that has gelled well most times and showed they can even win games with a second-string side.

The return of Ambati Rayudu will be of great help in bolstering the line-up and that could tilt the balance in Mumbai’s favour for us. So what are our cricket betting tips for these IPL Playoffs?

Pro Tip:

  • Look for Mumbai as an IPL title winner option @ 11/8

Other IPL Tips:

  • Kolkata to reach the final: 5/2
