CSK vs GT Team Previews
Chennai Super Kings
CSK will be desperate to erase the memory of the 97-run defeat it suffered in the previous match. When betting, you should disregard that match as well, as such poor performances are not indicative of what you can expect from the team on average.
The batting line-up of Gaikwad, Conway, Moeen, Rayadu, Uthappa, Dhoni, and Dube is more than capable of winning a match against any opposition, as can be seen by looking at the players listed above. Our belief is that the players’ confidence won’t be affected by a single match.
In this match, you can back Devon Conway or Moeen Ali to score above their respective Over/Under lines. Their left-handedness, combined with the Wankhede’s short boundaries, may work in their favour.
CSK’s bowling has proven to be a major obstacle. Despite Mukesh Choudhary’s three wickets in the previous match, CSK has the weakest bowling lineup in this season’s IPL.
Moeen Ali, Mahesh Theekshana, Simran Singh and Dwayne Bravo do not appear to be an impressive bowling line-up.

After securing a place in the IPL playoffs for 2022, GT will want to secure a top-two finish. GT needs to win this game in order to finish second, but even if GT loses its final two games, it will still finish second.
The problem is this. Wriddhiman Saha and Shubman Gill are at the top of GT’s batting order, which is followed by a relatively weak batting order. Gill has been erratic, and Saha is always a concern as the tournament progresses.
Teams are also finding a way to contain Tewatia, who, like Pandya and Miller, has been struggling of late to score runs. The Gujarat Titans have won the most games so far this season. We could face a very different league table if we had a little bit of bad luck.
GT is at the top of our list, but we don’t think it’s the best team out there.
GT has a powerful bowling attack. Rashid Khan will be happy to hear that the pitches are slowing down and taking a turn. Pandya can make much more aggressive use of him. Even if Wade doesn’t play, Shami, Ferguson (if he does), Dayal, Joseph, and Sai Kishore are all going to pose a significant threat.

CSK VS GT TOSS PREDICTION
There is a tendency for the team that wins the coin toss to bat first. Teams batting first are winning more often lately because it becomes increasingly difficult to catch on pitches that are slowing down.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The Wankhede’s pitch was extremely favourable to the bowlers in the previous match there (CSK vs MI). The game between RR and DC was also a bit sluggish. In the same way, batting will not be the most straightforward task on this surface, which we can expect.
Somewhere around 165 is our best guess as to the par score.
CSK VS GT BETTING TIPS
We’ll bet on a Chennai Super Kings upset and back them in this match. Because of this, there are a few reasons. Both CSK and GT are not as good as they appear to be on paper, according to our opinion. The CSK batting and the GT bowling will square off in this contest. CSk’s batsmen are our picks to win the game.
Bet on the Chennai Super Kings to win the game.
