It’s been a fabulous tournament. We have seen examples of the very best Cricket has to offer. Both with bat and ball players have excelled themselves on every side producing magnificent matches. But we’ve reached the point where four teams move on and four drop out. So if you’ve not seen the odds on the IPL yet, now’s the time. Online sportsbook sites in India like Bet365 have all you need to bet on the 2020 IPL winner, but should you back their favorite; Mumbai?
It would be silly to say the Mumbai Indians haven’t put a foot wrong. They might have lost fewer matches than anyone else, but they’ve not been invincible. Pre-season that had been a concern. Now, however, that’s all behind us. We have a knock-out stage now in which luck will play as big a part as strategy, tactics, and skill. So, whilst backing the Mumbai Indians is the most obvious bet on the 2020 IPL winner, it may not be the best. On their day each of these teams is capable of winning.
Not least of which is the Sunrisers Hyderabad. Under David Warner, who pulled up another 500 runs in this tournament, they’re surging. They beat the Indians by ten wickets to get into the final four, Mumbai has to worry they’ll do it again. If Warner keeps hitting 85s, it’s not beyond them. At 5/1 they’re not a bad bet on the 2020 IPL winner, just a surprising bet on sports in India right now. A month ago you’d not have given them much of chance. They really have bounced back.
Sunrisers Batter Mumbai To Reach Final Four
Whether they can leap high enough to clear the remaining hurdles is another matter. When they don’t play well they play horribly, and this is a big stage. It can unnerve players. The Royal Challengers Bangalore suffer from much the same thing. Virat Kohli, however, is used to the pressure and is well placed to steer them in the right direction. Of course, 11/2 doesn’t make them a great bet on the 2020 IPL winner. The bookies fearing they’ll fade in the knockout stages.

They could be right. The depth of the squad is an issue. Australia is already wondering how many of their key players will have burned themselves out in the UAE. Does the RCB have what it needs to see their way into the final? Possibly. They’re certainly not a bad bet on the 2020 IPL winner, it’s just with the Sunrisers getting lower odds there are better longshots available. If you’re going to take advantage of Indian gambling laws to check out the 2020 IPL odds, just remember that.

The Mumbai Indians might get shorter odds than the Delhi Capitals but at least they won their last match. Whilst Hyderabad beat Mumbai, Dehli battered the RCB. This bodes well for Shreyas Iyer and co. They’re in their stride and could be very difficult to counter in the final stages of this tournament. Would they be a good bet on the 2020 IPL winner? At 11/5? Probably. The Indians could be going off the boil just in time to hand this one to the Capitals. That 10 wicket defeat worrying.
Of course not as worrying as what occurred to the Chennai Super Kings, Rajasthan Royals, Kings XI Punjab, and Kolkata Knight Riders all of which will have some serious introspection to get on with. Not reaching the knock-out stage with that much talent needs analysis. Just like your bet on the 2020 IPL winner at online betting sites in India like Bet365 will. So think carefully before just trusting the Indians or backing Dehli. The Sunrisers could be about to surprise everyone.
