We have now passed 50 matches in the Group State of the IPL 2022, which means that there are just 20 matches left before we find out the four teams that have made it through to the Play-Offs. We have already had a lot of entertainment in the Indian Premier League this year, and these entertainment levels are going to go through the roof now that we are coming to the business end of the tournament. The 51st match of the 2022 IPL sees the Gujurat Titans play the Mumbai Indians, and this is our prediction of who will win the game.

Gujurat Titans Team Preview

The Gujurat Titans have had a much much better debut IPL than anyone could have imagined as they currently sit at the top of the table with 8 wins from the 10 games that they have played. In addition to this, they also have a positive Net Run Rate, which is something that could be worth an extra point come the end of the Group Stage. With a six-point lead over the PBKS in fifth, something catastrophic will have to happen in order for them to fail to make it through to the Play-Offs.

Their last match of the tournament was against the PBKS, and they probably put in their worst performance of the tournament to date. The GT won the toss and decided to bat first so that they could put a decent score on the board and put their struggling opponents, who had lost five matches in a row, under severe pressure, but most of their batsmen just did not turn up on the day.

Sai Sudharshan was their top batsman, scoring 65 runs from the 50 balls that he faced but, apart from him, nobody else made any score of note, with only one of the eight other batsmen to walk to the crease managing to make it past 20 runs. However, they have all performed admirably in this competition so far, so we can let them off with one poor performance.

When it comes to popularity, online cricket betting is second only to football when it comes to betting. Cricket opens itself up to cricket betting nicely due to the fact that there are so many different outcomes that cricket lovers can bet on. In our view, and you are welcome to disagree, one of the best markets that us cricket lovers can put our hard-earned money on is the Top Batsman market, and it is a market that you should try your luck with every so often because you will always find enticing odds.

So, with regard to the GT, who do we think will be the top scorer against the Mumbai Indians? Well, we would suggest that you put your money on Hardik Pandya. The GT captain has led by example at this year's IPL, and is the top scorer for his side - he has scored 309 runs in the 9 matches that he has played at an average of 44.14. Thus, we think that he is a good bet for being the top scorer for the GT against the MI.

With only 143 matches on the board to defend, the GT bowling attack, despite how good they are, knew that they were up against it. They needed plenty of early wickets, and they got their first in the second over when Mohammed Shami got Jonny Bairstow out for just 1. However, Shikhar Dhawan and Bhanuka Rajapaksa were in an unforgiving mood, and they put on a partnership of 87 for the second wicket. They went on to win the match by eight wickets and with 4 overs to spare.

Lockie Ferguson was the pick of the GT bowling unit, picking up a wicket and conceding 29 from his 3 overs. As usual, Rashid Khan was very economical, conceding just 5.25 an over, but he could not pick up the vital wickets that his side needed. Shami, despite picking up the early wicket of Bairstow, was expensive, conceding 43 runs from his 4 overs.

If you would like to do a little bit of IPL betting on the GT top bowler against the MI, then who do we recommend you put your money on? Well, it is always a good bet to go with Khan because not only is he always economical, he always has the potential to pick up a couple of wickets or more. To date, he has 9 wickets from 10 matches at an economy of 6.92.

Do we think that the GT will make any changes to their playing XI? Well, despite the fact that their collective display against the PBKS was really poor, they have had a very good tournament to date, and should not make harsh reactions off the back of one result. Thus, we feel that their playing XI, for the match against the MI will remain the same.

Mumbai Indians Team Preview

At the start of the competition, many had put money on the Mumbai Indians to go on and win the title, but they are not even going to make it to the Play-Offs as they have only won one of their 9 matches to date. This means that they are eight points adrift of a Play-Off spot, and have a NRR of -0.836, which is the worst in the tournament. They will, if truth be told, need an absolute miracle in order to make the Play-Offs.

Their last match of the tournament was against the Rajasthan Royals, and they picked up a very unexpected win. The MI won the toss and decided to field first, and they restricted the RR to 158 runs from their 20 overs. Once again, Jos Buttler was the top scorer for his team, hitting 67 runs from the 52 balls that he faced. Restricting a batting line-up like the one that the RR have is a feat in itself.

Riley Meredith was the top bowler for the MI, collecting 2 wickets and conceding just 24 runs from the 4 overs that he bowled. Kumar Kartikeya also bowled really well for his side, collecting a wicket and conceding only 19 runs from his 4 overs. Hrithik Shokeen picked up 2 wickets, but he was pretty expensive, going at 15.67 runs an over, and conceding a total of 47 runs.

If you want to bet on the best bowler for the MI at one of the IPL betting sites that you have an account with, then who should you bet on? Well, we have liked the look of Daniel Sams in the recent matches that the MI have played, and he is their top wicket-taker in the tournament. Therefore, we reckon it is a good move to put your money on him being their top bowler against the GT.

With just 158 runs on the board, the MI batsmen would have been quietly confident of winning their first game of the competition, and this is what they did. Their top batsman was Suryakumar Yadav, who hit 51 runs from the 39 balls that he faced, while Tilak Varma chipped in with 35 off 30, and Ishan Kishan scored 26 from 18. Tim David then helped to see his side home with an enterprising 20 runs from 9 balls.

If you want to make an IPL prediction on the top batsman for the MI against the GT, then who is it that we suggest you put your money on? Well, putting a bet on Varma would be a wise one since in the 9 matches that they have played, he has scored 307 runs at an average of 43.86. If you do not like the look of Varma, then Yadav is also a safe bet, since he has scored 290 runs at an average of 48.33.

Do we think that the MI will make any changes to their playing XI for their match against the GT? Well, we would be tempted to replace Rohit Sharma because he has been very poor, scoring just 155 runs from the 9 matches he has played in, but it is highly unlikely that they will replace their captain. As a result, they will probably just stick to the same playing XI that beat the RR.

Toss Prediction

At the start of the 15th edition of the IPL, the coin toss was playing a big role in deciding the team that would go on to win the match. This was because the franchise that fielded first had a huge advantage as they did not have the unfortunate experience of bowling when dew is about. Bowling in dewy conditions is a nightmare for bowlers because they cannot grip the wet ball properly and the ball comes nicely on to the bat.

However, it now seems that the dewy conditions have decreased a bit. For example, from the last 12 matches, 7 have been won by the team that lost the toss, while 5 have been won by the team that won the toss. However, despite this evidence that dew is becoming less of a problem, captains still seem eager to put their team into field first, rather than try and put a total on the board. Thus, our toss prediction is that the captain the wins the coin toss will decide to bowl first.

Pitch Conditions

This game will be played at the Brabourne Stadium, and this venue has an average first innings score of 174. The team that has batted first in the IPL 2022 matches that have been played at this stadium have won just 36% of the time, which is another reason why it is likely that the team that wins the coin toss will opt to field first. The team that bats first in this game will aim to put a score of at least 200 on the board, as this has been the average score needed to win a match at this stadium when batting first.

Our GT vs MI Betting Tips

Making predictions for the Indian Premier League is tricky because all of the teams are pretty evenly matched, and anyone can beat anyone on the day. This is indicated by the odds that the top bookies are offering as they are, more often than not, pretty much even. This match today is another tricky game to call, but the team that we predict will win is the Gujurat Titans. This is our match prediction today because we feel that the GT, despite their performance against the KKR, are a team that has more quality in their batting and bowling department than the Mumbai Indians.
