A bet on the Delhi Capitals in the 2019 IPL might not seem the wisest of choices but with them getting a very tempting 7/1 at bookies like Unibet Sportsbook, one of the best online betting sites in India, they could be the dark horse of this the 12th incarnation of the world’s favorite T20 competition. They may have finished dead last in the tournament last time around but that doesn’t mean you can expect them to fold against the Mumbai Indians in their first game this weekend.
Their performance in 2018 was, to be frank, inauspicious, and any bet on the Delhi Capitals in the 2019 IPL has to be based on the numerous changes they’ve made to the side going into this year’s T20 tournament. There will remain questions over some of the untested players in the side until they prove themselves and there may just not be time for them to settle before the results are in so you do have to be aware that the Delhi Capitals are a longshot and should be treated as such.

- Delhi Capitals – 13/10
- Mumbai Indians – 8/13
They do have a good variety in their bowling line up which could catch some batsmen off guard, the likes of Sandeep Lamichhane and Trent Boult accompanied by Kagiso Rabada keeping it tight but at the other end of the game they’re not as brightly lit. That bet on the Delhi Capitals in the 2019 IPL might rest on Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw and Colin Ingram and that’s risky at 7/1 at bookies like Unibet Sportbook, one of the best online sportsbook news sites in India right now.

Delhi Capitals Face Off Against Mumbai Indians In IPL 12
Where perhaps a bet on the Delhi Capitals in the 2019 IPL makes more sense is in their ability to finish with Shreyas Iyer and Rishabh Pant alongside Chris Morris and Axar Patel, is unquestionable. Their middle order very firm indeed and that could be quite the issue late in the season when bigger names have rushed off to the ICC World Cup in England. Not that this gives them very good odds against the Mumbai Indians in their first match of IPL 12 this weekend.
Those who like to spend time at online sportsbook in India will find bookies like Unibet Sportsbook only give the Delhi Capitals 13/10 to win on Sunday, and a bet on the Delhi Capitals in the 2019 IPL outright is a much nicer wager. The Mumbai Indians for their part get a tempting 8/13 to win their first match, and they’ll be desperate to make a better fist of things this year than last when they were disappointingly just pipped to a place in the elimination rounds of this amazing T20 competition.

They’ll be hoping Suryakumar Yadav is on form and he and Evin Lewis can get off the mark a little quicker this time round than last. They’ll also need to hope Ishan Kishan can get with the program, something perhaps as optimistic as a bet on the Delhi Capitals in the 2019 IPL to win the trophy at season’s end. Fortunately the Mumbai Indians don’t need to count on their openers with a fabulous middle order and Jasprit Bumrah ready to lead an interesting bowling line up.

For those eschewing the temptations of a bet on the Delhi Capitals in the 2019 IPL, the Mumbai Indians get 11/2 to win the league, on a par with last year’s champs the Chennai Super Kings. So if the Pandya brothers, Kieron Pollard and Rohit Sharma have anything to say about it they’ll be right up there come the death and could well be worth taking advantage of Indian gambling laws to back, after all, new boy Mayank Markande could well make this side far fiercer in 2019.
