The Indian Premier League group stage is quickly reaching the business end, and there are still eight teams that we feel are in contention for a spot in the Play-Offs. This is what we expected at the start of the IPL 2022 since all of the franchises are quite evenly matches, and they all have the ability to beat any of the other nine teams on their day. The 45th match of the IPL will see the Delhi Capitals play against the Lucknow Super Giants, and below you can find our prediction of who will win the game.

Delhi Capitals Team Preview

The Delhi Capitals are sitting in sixth place in the table with four wins and four losses from the eight games that they have played. They are just two points adrift of a Play-Off spot, so are well in contention to claim one of the four positions. One thing that is working in their favour is the fact that they have a very good Net Run Rate of +0.695, which could be worth an extra point come the end of the Group Stage.

Their last match was against the Kolkata Knight Riders, and they won the match by four wickets. The DC won the toss and opted to field first in the hope of being able to bowl the KKR out for a below par score. They managed to do exactly this, restricting the KKR to 146 runs from their 20 overs.

Kuldeep Yadav was the pick of their bowlers, picking up 4 wickets for 14 runs from the 3 overs that he bowled. He picked up the big wickets of Shreyas Iyer, Sunil Narine, and Andre Russell. Mustafizur Rahman also put in a quality bowling performance, collecting 3 wickets for 18 runs from the 4 overs that he bowled. All in all, the DC put in a very good bowling performance to restrict the KKR to a very chaseable score.

It is fair to say that online cricket betting has become a very popular hobby for many, even for those who do not classify themselves as huge cricket fans, and the reason for this is because there are just so many markets that punters can put their money on. One of the best markets, in our opinion, is the Top Bowler market, and we do suggest that you give it a try every so often because the odds that are available are always good.

So, we do we feel will be the top bowler for the DC against the LSG? Well, we would have to go for K. Yadav, since he has been bowling very well throughout the tournament. He has picked up 17 wickets in 8 games at an average of 14.12 and has an economy of 8.09. Thus, if you want to place such a bet, you will be doing your chances of winning no harm by betting on him.

With just 147 needed to win the match, the DC batsmen would have been very confident of chasing it down and claiming another vital two points. However, they got off to a bit of a wobble when Prithvi Shaw and Mitchell Marsh went early, leaving them at 17/2. However, a 42 from 26 balls by David Warner got them back on track, before another wobble, where they lost 3 wickets for 2 runs, gave the KKR hope. This hope was soon vanquished though thanks to a 33 from 16 balls from Rovman Powell and a 24 from 17 by Axar Patel. In the end, the reached their target with 6 balls to spare.

Another popular market for IPL betting is the Top Batsman one, and this is one that we like to try our luck with. If you have been following our predictions closely throughout the IPL, then you will know that we have a pretty good record at predicting the top batsman for a team. So, who would we recommend you put your money on to the top scorer for the DC against the LSG?

Well, there is one player that we cannot look beyond, and that is Warner. The Australian has been in fine form, and is the top scorer overall for the DC, despite the fact that he missed the first couple of matches. He has scored 261 runs in 6 games and has an average of 52.2. So, with this in mind, he is the one player that we would be more than happy to put our money on.

Do we think there will be any changes to the DC playing XI? The simple answer to this question is no - there has been no player that has been performing consistently bad in the side, so we believe that the selectors will decide to stick with a winning formula.

Lucknow Super Giants Team Preview

The Lucknow Super Giants are sitting third in the table with 12 points thanks to their six wins from the 9 games that they have played. They also have a pretty decent NRR of +0.408, which could play a big part at the end of the Group Stage since it is what determines the final position of teams that finish on equal points.

Their last match was against the Punjab Kings, and they won the game by 20 runs. The PBKS won the toss and decided to field, so it was up to the LSG batsmen to put a commanding total on the score. They managed to score 153 runs from their 20 overs, which many thought was about 20 runs light, but it did not matter in the end because the PBKS could not chase it down.

Quinton de Kock was their top scorer on the day, scoring 46 runs from the 37 balls that he faced, while Deepak Hooda chipped in with 34 runs from 28 balls. None of the other batsmen really chipped in with much worth talking about, if we are being honest. KL Rahul was out for 6, but he has been very good in the IPL, and is allowed one failure.

All IPL betting sites that you come across will allow you to bet on the Top Batman, and it is the type of market that provides plenty of entertainment and big rewards if you predict correctly. When it comes to the top batsman for the LSG against the DC, who would we suggest that you put your money on?

Well, there is one player that scores runs for fun in the IPL and if you bet on him, you will definitely have a good chance of making a nice little profit. This player is, of course, Rahul. In the 9 matches that he has played in this year's IPL, he has scored 374 runs at an average of 53.43. He has been on fire in the Indian Premier League over the last few seasons and is always our bet for Top Batsman.

With 153 runs to defend, the LSG bowlers would have known that they would have to bowl very well in order to go on and win the game, and this is exactly what they did. They reduced the PBKS to 58/3 after 7.6 overs and then stifled them so that they could only reach 133 runs from their 20 overs.

The pick of the bowlers for the LSG was Mohsin Khan, who collected 3 wickets for 24 runs from the 4 overs that he bowled. Dushmantha Chameera and Krunal Pandya also put in quality bowling performances, picking up 4 wickets between them and conceding just 28 runs. That was some quality bowling performance if you ask us.

If you would like to make an IPL prediction on the top bowler for the LSG, then who would we recommend you put your money on? Well, Pandya has been bowling really well as of late, and to go for just 11 runs from 4 overs in the last match and pick up 2 wickets was an outstanding display of bowling. In the competition, he has picked up 9 wickets from 8 matches and has an average of 18.56.

Do we think that they will make any changes to their team? Well, changing a winning formula is never recommend, so we feel that they will play the same XI for their game against the DC, unless there is an injury or sickness.

Toss Prediction

In the first half of this year's competition, the coin toss was playing a huge role in deciding who would win the match, since the side that fielded first had a big advantaged because they avoided having to bowl with the dew. However, it does seem that things are beginning to even out now, and that the dew is less of a problem. For instance, 4 of the last 6 matches have been won by the team that did not win the coin toss, while at an earlier point in the competition, the team that won the toss win 14 games out of the first 20.

However, despite this, it still seems that teams are less eager to bat first and put a score on the board. The reason for this is probably because they are still a bit cautious about dew returning and hampering their chances of getting 2 important points. Therefore, our toss prediction for this match is that the captain who wins the toss will decide to field first.

Pitch Conditions

This game will take part at the Wankhede Stadium, where the average score for the team batting first has been 170. The team that has chased at this venue in the 2022 IPL has gone on to win 54% of the games, so this is another reason why we feel that the winning captain will decide to bowl first. The team that needs to bat first will be looking to make a score of around 180-190.

Our DC vs LSG Betting Tips

This is another match today that is tricky to call since it really can go either way. This is shown by the odds that top bookies, such as Betway, are offering for this match. The DC has been given odds of 1.83, while the LSG have odds of 1.90. Many other prediction sites like to sit on the fence and give two predictions for the final result, depending on the coin toss, but we do not sit on the fence. Therefore, the team that we predict will win is the Lucknow Super Giants. Why is this our match prediction today? Well, the main reason is that we think that their bowling attack has been performing slightly better, and that this will turn the match in their favour.
