Lucknow Super Giants vs Gujarat Titans IPL Best Bet

Tuesday, May 10th, 3pm (UK time)

With table-toppers Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans both tied on 16 points, a guaranteed spot in the play-offs is up for grabs with victory at the Maharashtra Stadium.

Lucknow arrive in a rich vein of form after stringing together four wins on the trot, and last time out they inflicted a 75-run defeat on the Kolkata Knight Riders.

The Andy Flower led franchise have gone from strength to strength this season, with KL Rahul, Quinton de Kock and Deepak Hooda contributing over 1,100 runs at the top of the order and providing a stable base for their middle order to attack from.

As mentioned last week, the Titans knack of snatching victory from the jaws of defeat is by no means sustainable, and against Mumbai Indians they failed to convert a promising position into two points as they faltered in their chase of 177.

Previous to this loss, the Titans’ first-innings total of 143 was swatted away with minimal fuss by the Punjab Kings thanks to Shikhar Dhawan’s half century and Liam Livingstone’s six-hitting blitz.

This instability in the Gujarat batting lineup has been especially prominent when padding up first, as the side are yet to reach a total of 200 when doing so, adding further doubts to their title credentials.

Usually this IPL I have swerved the outright markets due to the chasing bias, however Pune is an exception to this. The last five matches have been won by the team batting first – so clearly the importance of the toss is minimized.

It is also interesting to note that when the Super Giants win, they usually hit the most sixes.

Out of their eight victories so far this season, six have seen them strike the most maximums, while Gujarat have failed to clear the rope anywhere near as often, winning this market once in 11 games.

Considering these polar opposite stats in the six-hitting department, I’m happy to jump on board with KL Rahul’s side in this market as well.

  • Selection: Lucknow Super Giants to win match and hit the most sixes
  • Best Odds: 2.60 (PaddyPower)
  • Stake: 7/10

Odds as at 9am May 10th 2022. Odds may now differ.
