  • Friday, October 16, 2020 - 3.00pm: Mumbai Indians v Kolkata Knight Riders

Who is the Mumbai Indians v Kolkata Knight Riders Favourite? 

Most bookmakers have got this one quite close with Boylesports pricing Mumbai Indians at 4/6 and Kolkata Knight Riders at 6/5.

The Knight Riders are coming into the game off the back of a heavy 82 run defeat by Royal Challengers, while the Indians continued their run with four straight wins and only one loss in six, that being a super over loss from the Royal Challengers.


Mumbai have had much more success throughout the IPL’s history against the Knight Riders, with the Indians winning 20 of their 26 encounters.

They last met at the end of September when the Indians won by 49 runs, with Rohit Sharma hitting 80 off 54 balls.

Last season there was a win apiece for the teams, a first win for the Knight Riders in 10 matches.

Our Mumbai Indians v Kolkata Knight Riders Predictions 

The Mumbai Indians are in fantastic form currently with Quinton de Kock helping his side get off to a great start in his last few games.

He knocked a half century last game and the Knight Riders will be keen for Pat Cummins to get his wicket early. We’d back de Kock to top score for the Indians at 13/5 with Ladbrokes, while he’s also 9/2 to be top scorer in the match.

Combine that with the Indians and you can back them and de Kock to top score at 4/1, while the Indians will need to be aware of Eoin Morgan who can prove a real game changer.

We’d back a relatively comfortable win in the end for the top side in the IPL though and our bet of the game goes with a two wicket or 11-20 run win at 7/1 with Betfair.
