Lucknow Super Giants

LSG has better bowling attack than KKR. KKR will be forced to make a switch in the opening position in a high-pressure match. This is far from ideal. The pressure of winning a match by a large margin could make KKR make a lot of mistakes.

Kolkata Knight Riders

KKR has won its last two games and found the momentum it needed at this late stage of the IPL. In fact, the previous game KKR lost was against LSG just over a week ago. Andre Russell has been in superb form and his contributions to the last two wins have been enormous.

We believe it's an easy decision to bet on him. You can bet on him hitting a six or look for an accumulator bet where he hits a six and picks up a wicket.

KKR will be without Rahane and that will force them to make a change as Rahane was already the backup opener. Baba Inderjith could get another run at the top of the order.

The batting lineup for KKR is certainly not weak, but with so much pressure to make runs and try to get a big win it will be forced to take unnecessary risks. Every player has to come out and smash the ball from the very first ball. From a betting perspective, this suggests that wickets are likely to fall on the power play, more sixes to be hit than usual and some changes in batting order.

Umesh Yadav is back for KKR and his return helps make the attack much more powerful with the new ball. Yadav, Southee, Russell, Narine and Chakravarthy will pose some serious questions to the LSG batting lineup.

Lucknow Super Giants

LSG have lost two games since last beating KKR. This season, LSG has been one of the best teams to bat first and worst when chasing. This is something to keep in mind, especially now that wickets seem to favor teams batting first.

LSG failed a bit with the racquet and it needs KL Rahul or Quinton de Kock to dominate again at the top. Both batsmen have the ability to sit down and play the big innings. This is important for a team like LSG, which has quality opening games and a strong group of finishers, but nothing in between.

Krunal Pandya and Ayush Badoni are sent in as pinch hitters to try and take the game deep. Deepak Hooda, Marcus Stoinis and Jason Holder provide the power in the LSG lineup. On a pitch that goes into a spin, problems can arise for LSG.

The bowling attack for LSG is very good. Mohsin Khan was one of the revelations of IPL 2022 and his partnership with Dushmanth Chameera was very effective. You may have had runs in the previous game, but you shouldn't read too much into one-off performances.

Jason Holder, Ravi Bishnoi, Krunal Pandya and Avesh Khan all round out a very strong bowling lineup.

Prediction

We are backing the Lucknow Super Giants to win this game. We believe they have superior bowling offense and while their batting lineup isn't the strongest, KL Rahul has been in excellent form to cover up many of the issues. Also, the fact that KKR has to aim for a big win will force it to take more risks and that could lead to its downfall.

Our bet is on the Lucknow Super Giants to win the game by 1.78.
