Before a ball had been bowled they were favorite to win the tournament this year. With the likes of Sandeep Sharma, Johnny Bairstow, David Warner and Rashid Khan on their roster hopes were high but they’ve only just made the playoffs by dint of their Net Run Rate. Thus the bookies like 1xBet, one of the best online sportsbook sites in India at present, is now offering a rather distant 7/1 2019 IPL odds on the Sunrisers Hyderabad to come through and actually win.
4/1 was the price most bookies like 1xBet were doling out back before the season started, the 2019 IPL odds on the Sunrisers Hyderabad based on just how passionate they were about getting some revenge for the 8 wicket loss in the 2018 final against rivals the Chennai Super Kings. Unfortunately whilst they had all the potential you could expect of a team with such vast quantities of raw talent their actual results left something to be desired, like a few more wins.
They’ve lost eight and won just six, losing to each and every other team in the league. They only just scrape into the playoffs because their Net Run Rate is +0.577 and the Kolkata Knight Riders managed only a +0.028 NRR, the Kings XI Punjab (also on 12 points) out of the running with an NRR of -0.251 when it counted. This is explains then why the 2019 IPL odds on the Sunrisers Hyderabad have fallen quite so far at 1xBet one of the best online betting sites in India.
Chennai Super Kings & Mumbai Indians FavoritesAt 6/4
Meanwhile the Dehli Capitals have moved in the opposite direction from the 2019 IPL odds on the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The season saw them start way out at 7/1 and then keep pace with the big boys emerging from the regular season with a 9-5 win-loss record which has sent their chances tumbling down to 11/2 at bookies like 1xBet. That’s still quite long, probably tempered by the fact Chennai beat them on both the two occasions they’ve met so far this year.
2019 IPL Outright Odds at 1xBet
- Hyderabad Sunrisers – 7/1
- Delhi Capitals – 11/2
- Chennai Super Kings – 6/4
- Mumbai Indians – 6/4
The Chennai Super Kings which enjoyed 11/2 odds back at the start of the tournament have pretty much held steady alongside their surprise rivals the Mumbai Indians, now loitering around the 6/4 mark. Those looking to take advantage of Indian gambling laws, then, will be forgiven thinking this is now a two horse race between the Super Kings and Indians, the 2019 IPL odds on the Sunrisers Hyderabad a bit a moot given they’d have to suddenly play far better to progress.

Of course if ever there were a moment for heroic victory this is it and many of the bookies like 1xBet are handing out 2019 IPL odds on the Sunrisers Hyderabad winning against the third placed Delhi Capitals of just Evens whilst their opposition get 4/5. The bookies gambling they’ll get to the final and then lose, apparently. Perhaps that’s an accurate assessment, certainly most of those who bet on sports in India would agree they don’t necessarily deserve to win it.
- Delhi Capitals – 4/5
- Hyderabad Sunrisers – Evens
So then with your sensible trousers on it should be a straight choice between Chennai and Mumbai to win overall, with the result of their Qualifier probably sealing the deal on the entire tournament, the final likely to be a trouncing of whichever team wiggles their way through to win. That said this tournament is anything but predictable, after all most people predicted those short 2019 IPL odds on the Sunrisers Hyderabad back at the start of the season were accurate too.
- Mumbai Indians – 10/11
Chennai Super Kings – 10/11
