Pick 9:- RCB to Win (1.80)

Punjab Kings will be facing Royal Challengers Bangalore for their game at Barbourne Stadium and all eyes will be on this fixture. This match will directly affect the playoffs race. With a win here , RCB can get to 16 points and can finish the season on 2nd place. On the other hand , PBKS will have to win this match to keep their playoffs race alive. RCB came back to winning ways after their three games losing run and have won their last two games , which includes a 67 runs win over the SRH side which stopped them at 68/10 earlier in the season. Although Virat Kohli is still struggling and we can see him getting out in first few overs , other RCB batters are doing very good. Their bowlers have had a important role in their wins and Wanindu Hasranga is having a very good season (21 wickets for avg of 15.33). PBKS has worst average wicket taken per game in the league (5.26) and their results show this. I think RCB will be looking to improve their table position and they have enough quality to win this fixture. These two teams met earlier in the season and PBKS won that game. But they failed to take wickets and RCB scored 205/2 in that game. If the same happens here , I think RCB bowling attack will stop them well short of 200 runs.

So I'm taking RCB to win as my pick.☘️
