Player of the Series

Most wickets

Kagiso Rabada

IPL: Most popular markets

Pre-tournament, reigning champions the Mumbai Indians headed up the odds. Having won five of the last eight titles, and with new faces such as Suryakumar Yadav and Rahul Chahar making their mark, backing them to retain their title seemed a sensible option.

However, their form before the break spluttered. It’s the Delhi Capitals that look most likely, with Rishabh Pant skippering the side in brilliant fashion. They’ve yet to win an IPL title, but were runners up in 2020, and look in fantastic form thus far.

Don’t sleep on the Chennai Super Kings, who have been impressive despite star man MS Dhoni yet to display his undoubted quality. And if you’re looking for a little more value, and want more of an outsider, the Royal Challengers Bangalore, three-times beaten finalists, has the ability to go one better this time, with Virat Kholi and AB de Villiers leading the way.

In-play betting on the IPL

Even when the action has got under way, you can still take part in IPL match betting and more. Just because the game has started, the betting doesn’t have to stop.

IPL cricket betting sites update their odds instantly to reflect the quickly changing state of the match and that allows betting to continue throughout.

In-play betting on the IPL is incredibly popular. If you are watching the game and think a particular outcome is likely, you can bet on it.

For instance, if the Mumbai Indians lose two wickets in the first over of their innings, you can still bet on them to win that match.

IPL betting tips

At the beginning of May, the IPL ground to a halt mid-way through the 2021 season due to multiple COVID-19 breakouts among teams. Now back underway, the action can pick up where it left off.

A huge range of markets are available, including outrights on the winner of each match and the tournament, and more complex bets such as over/unders on the total of sixes hit. Look for well-regarded licensed sportsbooks that offer competitive odds – always check multiple sites for the best value when betting on the IPL.

The IPL is also an opportunity for sportsbooks to attract new customers, and they do so with a host of interesting offers. The most common is a free bet for new customers. When you place your first wager, the same amount – or a multiple of it – will be put in your account.

You’ll also find other special deals for IPL online betting, such as enhanced odds and in-play insurance, which returns a percentage of your losses as a free bet.
