With the start of the new season of the Pro Kabaddi League, we take a deep breath for the opening games and follow the Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 Predictions.
For the uninitiated
Kabaddi is a contact team sport of Indian Origin played between 2 teams of seven players. The objective of the game is for a single offensive player to make a run referred to as a raid into the opposing team’s half of a court. Tag out as many of their defenders as possible, and return to their own half of the court, all without being tackled by the defenders. And all in a single breath!
Points are scored for each player tagged by the raider while the opposing team earns a point for stopping the raider. Players are taken out of the game if they are tagged or tackled but are brought back in for each point scored by their team from a tag or tackle. With 22 games in the season, check the online sportsbooks news in India and keep up with the latest Kabaddi markets.
Pro Kabaddi League Season 7 Predictions for Patna Pirates v Bengaluru Bulls.
The Patna Pirates come up against the Zone B winners from season 6, the Bengaluru Bulls. The Bulls had the better last five for the season, chalking up three wins alongside a draw and a loss. The Pirates, on the other hand, closed with four losses and one draw.
There is very little between these two teams on the court. Therefore, it comes as no surprise to see the slimmest of margins on the markets. Top online betting site 1xBET Sportsbook has the Bulls narrowly ahead of the pirates. Offering 1.72 for a Bulls victory. This would probably seem fair, considering how the Pirates ended their campaign for season 6. They have 2.08 odds at the same sportsbook.
Is it the clash of the Gods? Telugu Titans v U Mumba
The other game in the opening week of the season is no less a clash of the titans. U Mumba, who finished the season with a similar record to the Bulls, are a team in form. They finished second in Zone A, not far behind Gujarat. Having been season two Pro Kabaddi winners and two-time trophy finalists, they appear to have the desire. The team is an exciting mix of youth and experience. They do seem to lack a consistent point scoring raider.
Though they still feature highly in our Pro Kabaddi Season 7 Prediction as one of the teams to watch, the odds for U Mumba are currently 1.67 at 1xBET. The opposition in this matchup doesn’t exactly live up to the name. The Telugu Titans are anything but successful. Their highest placed season finish was fourth in season four. Since then they have languished in mediocrity. This is reflected in their odds as well: 2.28 at 1XBET.
