Indian Premier League 2013 – Outright Betting Tips


The IPL kicks off this Wednesday and a few interests over the marathon 2 weeks can reap reward if done wisely. I have spread myself with low stakes and hope for the best.

Outright Markets:


.5pt Super Kings 4/1 various

.25pts Pune Warriors 10/1 various

There is a hell of a lot going for Chennai, buy they have a strong line up of players and most important the issue with Sri Lankan players not been able to play in Chennai this season does not affect them. They have very strong indian batsmen, cure   add to that Faf, viagra order Hussey and Dwayne Bravo.

Pune have had issues but as an outsider have been rated by a few shrewd guys on twitter to do well.

Hussey and Chennai should go well

Top Batsman:

.2pt e/wM.Hussey (22/1 sportingbet 28.0 betfair) 5places

.2pt e/w S.Watson (28/1 various, ) 5places

.1pt M.Samuels 50/1 various

Gayle is strong favourite but we should look elsewhere as he has had some injuries concerns which could flare up, but he could also make mockery of his price if he gets going. Hussey will be batting for a strong team in CSK he bats in the top 3 which is key and his form has been decent hes fantastic hitter too and can not see him been dropped at any stage.

I will admit I had backed both of these at bigger prices and I have not changed my thoughts on them being good options.  Samuels I have added he top batted at the world cup and can be very dangerous when given the chance his bowling shold ensure him games.


.2pt on each of above top aussie 5/1 betvictor

Other Batsmen bets:

Shah has a proven t20 record and should see games

1pt O.Shah top English bat 7/4 boylesports

.5pt AB De Villiers top SAffers bat 5/2 sportingbet

.2pt e/w Rohit Sharma 16/1 betvictor

Shah looks to be only englishman who will get plenty game and looks good option.

Sharma is a dark horse fancy for me, im not always keen on him but he can do bit and probably be leaned on by his team.

Team Top Bats:

.5pt Jayawardne top delhi bat @7/2 paddypower

.2pt D.Hussey top Punjab bat @4/1 various

Jayawardne is among a mixed delhi batting lineup and can take advantage even if he can not play in chennai matches. Hussey is in bad bunch of the punjab batting line up.

.2pt M.Tiwary top KKR bat  @6/1 betvictor

.2pts R.Sharma top Mumbai bat @7/2 paddypower

With gambhir having serious, mccallum carrying an injury and kallis better in other format Indian batsman tiwary could be one to step up.

.4pts M.Samuel top Pune bat  @9/2 paddypower

.3pt Watson top royals bat @ 5/2 boyles

.1pt AB De Villiers top RCB bat @10/1 paddys

.2pt Sangakarra top SUnrisers bat @3/1 betvictor

Morkel has taken plenty wickets for Delhi

Top Bowlers:

.2pt e/w Ajantha Mendis 22/1 (bet365)

.2pt e/w M.Morkel 18/1 betvictor

Mendis can deceive a bit to the untrained batsman and oculd get results here. Morkel will miss games but he could real be the type to get 4 or 5 wicket hauls.

.1pt Jajeda top CSK bowler @ 5/1 coral

.1pt Sharma top sunrises @ 5/1 bet365

1pt Morkel top Delhi bowler @7/4 hills

Morkel is the heartbeat of this delhi attack that carried it at times last year, he misses 1 or 2 games but once he gets over he should kick into gear.

.1pt Chawla top punjab bowler @ 10/3 williamhill


Special Bet:

2pts Under 224.5 runs highest score

This score has been beaten 4 times, twice in 2011 so in the 5 years before it came in twice, however it came up short last year and I think it could be worth siding with.
