It’s only the NRR (net run rate) that separates the two teams after the first round of matches in the IPL, the most exciting cricket league in the world, but who’ll get the upper hand when the Chennai Super Kings take on the Kolkata Knight Riders in the M A Chidambaram Stadium? If you’re apt to do some online gambling in India this summer we take a look at the odds being offered on this match.
- Bet on Chennai Super Kings – Evens
- Bet no Kolkata Knight Riders – 4/5
Even the rest of the team will admit that the Chennai Super Kings got their win against the Mumbai Indians in no small part due to the seven sixes Dwayne Bravo hit off just thirty balls on his way to a creditable 68, and even if they only won by a single wicket as any gambler at a casino in India will tell you, a win is a win. Even Mayank Markande getting 3 for 23 seemed less impressive as Bravo battered the ball all over the Wankhede Stadium, maybe then you should bet on Chennai against Kolkata too.
Is A Bet On Chennai A Defiance Of The Odds?
Thing is the Kolkata Knight Riders also won their first game against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, and quite a little bit more comfortably (a four wicket margin) so if you’re about to skirt Indian gambling laws to place a bet on Chennai just remember they’re not actually getting the best of the odds, although there is a wafer thin difference between the Evens on Chennai and the 4/5 on the Knight Riders, and sat in a poker room in India there’s probably something to be said for saving your money.
