If you still had any doubts about taking up the odds on the Chennai Super Kings, they’ve done much to erase them. Their victory over the RCB was a classic. They look capable of challenging for the title this year, and are thus a very tempting bet on the 2021 IPL. Naturally, the Capitals are still favorites, but online sportsbook sites in India like Bet365 have seen the IPL odds shifting. Whilst Chennai have closed up to just 7/2 the Sunrisers Hyderabad have drifted off into the sunset.
“You can probably say one guy beat us.” Admitted Virat Kohli, Captain of the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Super Kings beat the RCB by 69 inflicting the first defeat of the season on Kohli and crew. Much of the damage, as Virat pointed out, coming from just one man. Ravindra Jadeja. With both bat and ball the Indian all-rounder was devastating. His presence alone probably makes the Chennai Super Kings a good bet on the 2021 IPL now. He’s clearly a game-winning player.
“I was a bit tired before the last over.” Jadeja said modestly. “I was looking to hit the ball hard.” Which he did. He equaled the tournament record. Hitting five sixes he totaled 37, finishing unbeaten on 62 after just 28 balls. Astonishing. Then he picked up the ball and helped the Super Kings run out Bangalore getting three for thirteen in just four overs. Classic stuff. So are Chennai the best bet on the 2021 IPL at online betting sites in India like Bet365 now? Well perhaps not.
Jadeja Equals IPL Over-Run Record
Despite some superb performances, they may not quite have the depth of squad that the Capitals enjoy. Sure, they’ve moved up, but can they stay there? It’s not uncommon for the mighty to fall in this tournament. Just ask the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Their odds on the 2021 IPL are now so long they could be playing in a different competition. They get barely 20/1. For comparison, that bet on the 2021 IPL backing the Delhi Capitals is going for just 11/4. So should you back Dehli then?

Well only if you believe the RCB shouldn’t feature in your bet on the 2021 IPL. Yes, they lost, but with Kohli at the helm, and their roster of players, they’re out for victory. They too get 7/2 as the bookies tempt people to take advantage of Indian gambling laws. So then a bet on the Chennai Super Kings is a great idea, they’ve the hunger. However just remember so do the other three teams sat at the top of the table, although each is displaying a small lack of consistency.

Even the big teams can have an off day. The Mumbai Indians, another 7/2 shot at online bookies in India like Bet365, lost to the Punjab Kings. Or rather, they lost to KL Rahul and Chris Gayle. The pair racked up 103 between them, neither one out at the end. With firepower like that it’s surprising they’re not a better bet on the 2021 IPL. Alas, it is perhaps all they have going for them which is why they get 22/1 right now. They had a good day, but this won’t be their year.
- Ravindra Jadeja – Chennai Super Kings
So then, if you’re going to bet on the 2021 IPL you could do far worse than Chennai. The RCB attack seems blunted, Mumbai are adrift and the Capitals needed a ‘super over’ to beat Hyderabad. At this rate the Super Kings will walk it. They may not have attracted the best odds on the IPL this year so far, but that doesn’t stop them being s a superb bet on sports in India. After all, with the likes of Ravindra Jadeja on form and in the side they could prove unstoppable.
We take a look at why the Chennai Super Kings could be your best bet on the 2021 IPL.
