The 13th match of the IPL 2022 will see the Rajasthan Royals take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore, and this is a match that we definitely recommend you do not miss out on. So, who do we expect to go on and win this game and claim another two vital points in their march towards the Play-Offs? Well, keep on reading if you are interested in finding out our IPL prediction of who will win the game.

Rajasthan Royals Team Preview

The Rajasthan Royals sit at the top of the IPL table at this early stage thanks to two wins from their opening two games. As well as four points, they also have a really good Net Run Rate, which is currently sitting at +2.100. They will be looking to boost that NRR and make it six points from six when they take on the Royal Challengers Bangalore on Tuesday evening.

In their second match of the Indian Premier League, they took on the Mumbai Indians, who were one of the favourites to go on and win the tournament before it started. They were put in to bat first, and managed to score 193 runs from their 20 overs thanks mostly to a majestic 100 from 68 balls by Jos Buttler. We have been a little bit off with our match predictions lately, but we were glad that we backed Buttler to top score for the Rajasthan Royals.

Sanju Samson chipped in with 30 runs from 21 balls and Shimron Hetmeyer scored 35 runs from 14 balls, but the rest of the batsmen failed to contribute to the score. Yashasvi Jaiswal was out for 1, Devdutt Padikkal was out for 7, Riyan Parag was out for 5, Ravi Ashwin was out for 1, and Navdeep Saini was out for 2. So, they certainly have Buttler to thank for the fact that they came away with another win under their belt.

If you want to do some online cricket betting for this match and are considering placing some money on the top batsman for the Rajasthan Royals, then who would we recommend that you place your money on? Well, we think that it is worth a risk putting some money on Buttler to top score again considering the form that he is in. If you think that it is too much of a risk to bet on the Englishman to top score again, then you should consider betting on Samson.

While 193 is a pretty decent score, the Mumbai Indians would have been quietly confident about being able to chase it down, but the main bowlers for the Rajasthan Royals all chipped in with wickets to ensure that the Mumbai Indians finished 23 runs short of their target. Yuzvendra Chahal, as we also predicted, was the top bowler for his team with figures of 26/2 from his four overs. Saini picked up 2/36 from three overs, Ashwin landed figures of 30/1 from four overs, Trent Boult had figures of 29/1 from his four overs, and Prasidh Krishna finished with 37/1 from the four overs that he bowled.

So, if you want to do some IPL betting on the top bowler for the Rajasthan Royals, who would we suggest you put your money on? Well, we love the way that Chahal has been bowling as of late and would recommend that you put your money on him. If you do not want to go for Chahal, then maybe it would be wise to place a bet on Ashwin to be the top bowler.

Do we think that they will make any changes to the playing XI for this game? Well, Nathan Coulter-Nile sat out of the last match because of a side strain but, even if he is fit to play this next match, we do not think that they will change a winning formula. Besides, Saini bowled well in the second match, while Coulter-Nile went all over the park in the first match, so it would seem unfair to swap them for this third match.

Royal Challengers Bangalore Team Preview

The Royal Challengers Bangalore are currently sitting in 6th place in the table with one win and one defeat from their first two matches. They have a Net Run Rate of -0.048, so they will be wary of the fact that they need to improve that. This IPL could be tighter than ever, and come the end of the group stage, a team's NRR could be the difference between them making it to the Play-Offs or not.

In their second match of the IPL, they took on the Kolkata Knight Riders and opted to bowl first. It ended up being the correct decision because they bowled the KKR out for a mere 128, and chased it down with four balls to spare. They did not have it all their own way though since they found themselves four wickets down with 62 runs on the board. In fact, from the seven wickets that fell, only two of them managed to score more than 20. Sherfane Rutherford scored 28 runs from 40 balls, while Shahbaz Ahmed scored 27 from 20.

All the quality IPL betting sites out there will offer exciting odds to their customers when it comes to betting on the player that will top score for the RCB, so who do we recommend you put your cash on? Well, this is always a tricky type of bet to get correct, but we would be tempted to put our money on Virat Kohli. Yes, he has not really done much with the bat so far in this tournament, but it is only a matter of time before he goes ahead and puts some bowlers to the sword.

The bowlers did their job in the first innings of this match, and the most impressive one for the Royal Challengers Bangalore was Wanindu Hasaranga. He picked up four wickets for 20 runs from the four overs that he bowled in this match. Akash Deep did pick up three wickets, but he was a bit expensive as he conceded 45 runs from the 23 balls that he bowled. Harshal Patel was another impressive bowler, collecting two wickets and conceding just 11 runs from the four overs that he bowled.

If you are thinking about making an IPL prediction for their top bowler in this match against the Rajasthan Royals, who would we recommend you put your hard-earned money on? Well, we think that Hasaranga is a quality bowler and will cause all teams issues in this tournament, so we would back him to be their top bowler.

When it comes to their playing XI, do we think that they will make any changes to their team? Well, while there are a number of players that are underperforming for the RCB, we do not think that they will make any changes to the XI that helped them to win their previous match against the KKR.

Toss Prediction

If you have paid any attention to the toss in the previous matches, then you will know that more often than not the captain that wins the coin toss will opt to bowl first. This is because they know that if they bowl second then they will have to put up with dew, which makes bowling all that much trickier. So, when it comes to our toss prediction, we would be surprised if the captain that wins the toss opts to bat first and field second.

Pitch Conditions

This match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, which is a pitch that offers a bit of help to both spinners and pace bowlers. However, the pitch usually eases out and favours batsmen as an innings progresses, which is another reason why the winning captain of the coin toss will opt to bat second. The average score batting first at this stadium in the 2022 IPL has been 142, so the team that bats first will be aiming for around 160 to give themselves a really good chance of going on to win the match.

There have been two matches played at the Wankhede Stadium in this year's edition of the IPL, and the chasing team has won both of them, so this is something that you should keep in mind when you are betting on the outcome of this match.

Our Match Prediction

The team that we predict will win this match is the Rajasthan Royals. When it comes to predicting this match today, it is not easy because we feel that a lot rests on the coin toss. Nowadays, the teams in the IPL are quite evenly matched, so the coin toss can play a big part in deciding who it is that will come out on top. However, we are not going to sit on the fence and tell you to put your money on the team that wins the toss, so our match prediction today is that the RR will go on to win this match as they are the form team at this moment in time.
