Rajasthan Royals Gujarat Titans

Rajasthan Royals take on Gujarat Titans on Friday in Match 48 of IPL 2023 at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur. Both sides will come into this game with their confidence dented after recent results and will be looking to get back to winning ways. Lwanele Poswayo is back with his best bets for this contest.

Betting Preview

The Royals come into this match having lost to the Mumbai Indians by six wickets in their previous game despite Yashasvi Jaiswal’s brilliant century (124). They’ll be hoping that other batters like Jos Buttler will come to the party with the Englishman due for a big score. I’m backing him to score 50+ runs in this game at 2.75.

With two batters in the top 13 of the Orange Cap race, it’s no surprise that the Royals are averaging the most runs per match of all teams. However, it is a different story with their bowling attack, especially in the death overs (17-20) where they are conceding on average nearly 42 runs, with only the RCB attack leaking more. They’ll need their bowlers to step up if they are to beat a quality Gujarat side.

The defending champions Gujarat Titans were sitting pretty at the top of the table after Wednesday’s games, but come into this match having lost their most recent match to the bottom-of-the-table Delhi Capitals on Tuesday in a match they should have won. Mohammed Shami was again impressive in the powerplay and I’m backing him to be amongst the wickets in this game.

In contrast with the Royals, the Titans’ bowlers have been the stronger of the two disciplines having conceded on average 163 runs per match with only the Lucknow Super Giants boasting a better record.

With both sides looking to bounce back, I’m backing the hosts RR to win this one
