I am famed for saying that if punters want to be guaranteed of finding and getting the biggest odds available on any major sporting events that they want to place a bet on, it should be the futures betting markets that they should be making full use of.
This year that is certainly the case regarding you and all other punters getting the bets odds on any teams they fancy the chances of in the Indian Premier League 2019, and as you will see from below, Betfred whose odds I will be quoting have certainly got a very attractive looking betting market on offer currently on that cricket tournament.
Even at this stage of the betting, there is one team that has been backed by quite a lot of punters and that team is the Chennai Super Kings, in fact so great has the volume of cash placed on them they are now installed as the 3/1 favourite to win this event outright.
But when there is a favourite there will always be a second favourite of course, in fact currently there are two joint second favourites and those two teams are up for grabs right now at Betfred at odds of 7/2 and they are the Sunrisers Hyderabad and the Mumbai Indians.
Other Mid-Priced Teams
As the odds on several the much more fancied teams are all very close, I think it’s fair to say you may be tempted to back some of the other teams that have some slightly higher and much more appealing odds attached to them.
If that is the case, then there are a couple of other teams that wouldn’t surprise too many people if they were crowned the champion team in this league and they are the Kolkata Knight Riders at 4/1 and the Kings XI Punjab team who are available even higher odds of 7/1.
Three other teams could surprise everybody and go on to be the top team this year, and the first of them is the Delhi Capitals and by backing them now you can get odds of 10/1.
As for the other two teams it would be a major shock if they did go on to win the title of the champion team this season and head the Indian Premier League, but having said that loyal supports of Rajasthan Royals could be willing to risk their money in return for outright winner odds of 20/1.
The other team that currently sits right at the bottom of all betting markets for this league is of course the Royal Challengers Bangalore and you really do need to be aware of the risk of betting on them for with odds of 25/1 that means their chances of winning are very, very low, however who am I to put you off backing them if you feel they have any chance what do ever of coming out on top, but I feel their odds are going to grow in the next week or two for sure!
