The Royal Challengers Bangalore have now dropped out of the IPL 2022 playoff spots after losing their previous three games in a row. If they can get back to their best in time, they’ll be hoping to beat the inconsistent Chennai Super Kings.
MS Dhoni’s return to CSK’s helm has triggered a resurgence in the team’s performance. Their victory over SRH was easy and they now have three wins in a row. CSK, on the other hand, has yet to win back-to-back games this season.
CSK’s comeback is still a little iffy according to the IPL betting sites, who have it as a slight underdog to win this match.

RCB vs CSK Team Previews
Royal Challengers Bangalore
RCB has lost three of its last three IPL 2022 matches, but it remains in fifth place. Virat Kohli’s fifty was one of the few positives to emerge from the team’s defeat by the Gujarat Titans in the previous match.
Even so, Virat Kohli’s 58 off 53 deliveries is likely to have played a significant role in RCB’s defeat. Is he going to be able to express himself freely after spending so much time in the middle? Our opinion is unsure and we don’t recommend placing a bet at this time.
Rajat Patidar, Glenn Maxwell, and Mahipal Lomror all performed admirably. RCB’s batting lineup is bolstered by the contributions of Faf du Plessis and Dinesh Karthik. In order for them to win, they just need one of their best players to step up and put up some big numbers.
We’d bet on Maxwell to hit a home run based on his recent form.
In their match against Gujarat Titans, RCB’s bowling lineup performed poorly. Despite this, it’s one of the better IPL 2022 bowling lineups. Featuring Josh Hazelwood, Harshal Patel and Wanindu Hasaranga, with Maxwell and Siraj on the dj’s side and Shahbaz on the vocals.
We’d bet on Wanindu Hasaranga to pick up wickets and perhaps even the Top Bowler RCB betting market now that spin is a bigger factor in the games.

Chennai Super Kings
In the previous match, MS Dhoni returned to lead CSK, and all of a sudden, things seemed to be back to normal. Ruturaj Gaikwad’s batting was a major asset. It took him a while to get back to his best, but he did and struck 99 from 57 balls.
It is safe to assume that he and Devon Conway will open again after their 182-run opening partnership last season.
Dhoni, Jadeja, and Santner will round out a potent middle order that includes Ambati Rayadu, Dwaine Pretorius, Robin Uthappa, and MS Dhoni. If Shivam Dube is fully fit, he could join this batting lineup and provide the power boost it needs.
CSK’s bowling lineup has been a major issue all season. Both their spinners and their ability to keep the ball in play at the end has been a problem for them. The pitches, on the other hand, have slowed down and are beginning to provide some additional assistance.
We believe that MS Dhoni’s bowling lineup will be at its best during this season. With Jadeja, Theekshana, and Santner in place, Pretorius will be able to use his change of pace as well to keep the runs down.
CSK has the potential to finish the IPL 2022 season much stronger than they started.

RCB VS CSK TOSS PREDICTION
Batting order will likely be decided by the winner of the coin flip. To get the spinners off to a good start when they return to Pune, it’s best to have at least one point on their scorecard from the previous match, which was held there.

PITCH AND CONDITIONS
Pune’s pitch has been excellent for batting, as evidenced by the previous game there, which saw close to 400 runs scored. However, there was some spin available, which is why we believe the next match may not be as high scoring. RCB’s inability to take advantage of the new ball has been a major problem so far.

RCB vs CSK Betting Tips
The Chennai Super Kings are our pick to win this game. We believe that they are currently in better shape and appear to be on the upswing. RCB has lost three of its last four matches, and its batting has been particularly poor. CSK will become more difficult to defeat as spin plays a larger role.
Bet on the victory of Chennai Super Kings.
