Jos Buttler is in the form of his life and his presence gives RR a huge advantage. RCB's top position is in poor form and the pressure on Virat Kohli is increasing. RR's bowling attack is very good, with all five bowlers being leading international players in the T20 format.

RCB would want to forget their previous game like a bad dream and just hope to move on quickly. A complete failure at bat resulted in the team being kicked out for 68 and they didn't have a chance to really defend that. Troubles at the top of the rankings continued for RCB as Anuj Rawat and Virat Kohli struggled massively.

There's no question Kohli will be dropped, but we think Rawat could be replaced in the squad. Anyhow, it's clear that RCB's top order needs some runs and without a middle order to rescue them, we could see another collapse.

Surprisingly the betting markets don't seem to change much for Virat Kohli and you could bet against him to try and capitalize on his terrible form.

Glenn Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik and Shahbaz Ahmed are the three hitters who excelled in the middle for RCB. We think it's not a bad idea to bet on Maxwell scoring some runs in this match.

Hitting RCB is vulnerable and it will also be up against two quality spinners on a surface that always gives them a bit of help.

RCB's bowling has been their forte this season and has allowed them to defend couple of times. The limits in Pune are larger than Wankhede or DY Patil Stadium, allowing their fast bowlers to use the short balls effectively.

Harshal Patel, Josh Hazelwood and Wanindu Hasaranga should be a handful here. The challenge for them will be to find a way to get past the Rajasthan Royals' in-form batting lineup.

Rajasthan Royals

RR has been the most impressive team at IPL 2022 so far, led by Jos Buttler, who has already completed three centuries this season and is now hitting at a whole different level. The other batsmen in the line-up like Sanju Samson, Shimron Hetmyer or Devdutt Padikkal were also in excellent form.

We also think adding Karun Nair to the lineup with Riyan Parag in support is a good move. It just adds a little much-needed depth to the lineup. In terms of batting power, it's hard to find a team that did better than RR in the 2022 IPL.

We would bet that in their current form they will hit more fours and more sixes in most games.

Trent Boult, Yuzvendra Chahal, R. Ashwin and Prasidh Krishna were already part of a dominant bowling setup, but we believe the addition of Obed McCoy made the lineup even stronger. We haven't seen the best of McCoy, who is very skilled with his slower balls and cutters.

Yuzendra Chahal is the obvious pick for the Top Bowler Rajasthan Royals betting market, but Trent Boult isn't sleeping either. He would also keep an eye on some early scalps.

Prediction

We bet on the Rajasthan Royals to win. It's difficult at this point to overlook the tremendous form of Jos Buttler, who could very well end up beating Virat Kohli's record for most runs in an IPL season. The batting lineup for RR is stronger and the bowling is also very good. There aren't too many weaknesses in their lineup at the moment. The same does not apply to RCB.

Our bet is on the Rajasthan Royals to win the game by 1.96.
