So, as per Bet365 DD vs RR who will win betting odds, DD are the favorites.
With the home advantage, Delhi Daredevils will be our favorites. Also, with the current form, it won’t be a much difficult task for Delhi to take an edge over Rajasthan. The newly ignited Shreyas Iyer’s Delhi Daredevils has performed exceptionally well in last two games. Although they faced a 13 runs defeat against CSK, the confidence which R Pant and V Shankar reflected with their knocks is highly commendable.
Rajasthan Royals is still struggling with out of form Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler. Moreover, they have still not found the perfect batting line-up which can be another reason for their 4 losses in 7 matches.
According to our DEL vs RAJ today match prediction, hosts will be favorite.
