Odds, picks & predictions

Gujarat Titans: -110
Mumbai Indians: -110

Moneyline pick: Gujarat Titans -110

I will be rooting for Mumbai in this game, and the betting odds suggest this is an even contest. However, the history of the tournament is in Gujarat’s favor. Since the current playoff format was introduced in 2011, only three teams have made the final from the Eliminator. Only one team has won the championship from the Eliminator. History suggests this will a win for Gujarat to set up a rematch of Qualifier 1.

Mumbai’s batting lineup is one reason to have some faith in the Indians, but the bowling leaves a lot to be desired outside of Akash Madhwal. Gujarat simply has more talent overall, and regression should impact the Titans in a positive way after struggling in Qualifier 1.
