The IPL 2022 season is off to a great start, with many of the games being closely contested to this point in the tournament. RCB and KKR are both playing in their second match of the tournament, so this is a big occasion for both teams (KKR). RCB was defeated by the Punjab Kings in their previous match, whereas KKR thrashed CSK in their first outing.
RCB remains the slight favourite in this match, despite the recent head-to-head being heavily in favour of KKR, according to the IPL betting sites. Is there a way to see if this is a good bet? Let’s take a closer look at this.
RCB vs KKR IPL 2022 match prediction and IPL betting tips. In 2022, the match will be held at the Dr. DY Patil Sports Academy in Mumbai.
RCB vs KKR Team Previews
Royal Challengers Bangalore
RCB showed some encouraging signs in its first match, despite the fact that it lost. A total of 13 sixes were struck in its innings, and Faf du Plessis proved once again that he is still a force to be reckoned with in the middle order. Kohli’s fluent innings against the spinners was perhaps the most important aspect of his performance.
Despite this, RCB lost the match, largely as a result of its subpar bowling. For Wanindu Hasaranga and Akash Deep, it was a match they’d rather not relive. We expect RCB to put up a better fight this time around, based on the strength of its bowling options.
With a strong batting order and a well-balanced roster, this team has a lot going for it. The only thing that bothered us was the fact that RCB began the game facing a disproportionate number of dot balls, which proved to be crucial in the outcome.

Kolkata Knight Riders
Umesh Yadav’s brilliant opening spell gave KKR a winning start in their first match. In the first over, he took two quick wickets and didn’t bowl any freebies, which is unusual for Umesh Yadav. While Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy were effective in the middle, Andre Russell and Shivam Mavi threw away runs at the end of the game.”
While Venkatesh Iyer was not used in the previous match, you can expect him to be used if the team needs him to bowl.
KKR’s batting performance was not spectacular, but it was not required to be. It’s worth keeping an eye on Ajinkya Rahane, who had a solid outing. He enjoys opening the batting in Mumbai, where the pitches are ideal for his style of play.
Andre Russell and Sunil Narine join Venkatesh Iyer, Nitish Rana, Shreyas Iyer, and Sam Billings in a potent line-up. This lineup has a great deal of versatility and power.
At this point in time, we believe the KKR team is being undervalued by IPL betting sites.

Pitch and Conditions
The DY Patil Stadium’s pitch is excellent. The previous match saw over 400 runs and 27 sixes, and we expect the same to happen in this one as well. The straight boundaries are quite short, but the square boundaries are large enough to allow the spinners to have a role.
We believe that teams batting first will aim for a score of 180 to 190.

RCB vs KKR Betting Tips
We’ll be placing a wager on the Kolkata Knight Riders to win the game. Because of this, there are a few reasons. In the first place, we believe that KKR has a more versatile lineup, allowing them to better capitalise on favourable matchups. RCB’s spinners can be attacked by its left-handers, and Sunil Narine and Andre Russell both enjoy playing against the team.
It’s possible to take advantage of KKR’s under-appreciated status. It’s likely that you’ll have plenty of opportunities to diversify your bets if you start with KKR.
