According to betting odds, KKR is favorite to win the game. No doubt, the home advantage will clearly give an edge over the visitors. But, Mumbai Indians seems to be a better-balanced side. They have won their last two games and are looking good at the moment.
KKR, on the other hand, is suffering from injuries of their key players. First, Nitish Rana missed a game due to a back injury and then Shivam Mavi missed the last game against MI. Injuries will be a big worry for KKR.
As per our KOL vs MUM today match prediction, although KKR has home advantage, MI will be favorite.
