Chennai are out for a hattrick of titles and at 7/2 with Blue Square, they are the bookies favourites to do just that. Dhoni and Raina are the batting force behind potential glory and at 33/1 and 16/1 (BetVictor) respectively, those two might be worth following in the top batsmen market, particularly Raina, who is top IPL scorer.
Delhi open up on Thursday in the 2nd match and Paddy Power make them 5/1 to clinch glory. With Sehwag and Warner in place and Taylor, Pietersen and Mahela added to the line up, the firepower is awesome and they have every chance of at least making the final – third odds with Paddy Power.
Finally, Bangalore are now one of the most consistent teams at IPL with two appearances in finals and they are Coral’s 11/2 shots. Again, they should be kept in mind with Gayle and Vettori both top players with the bat at ball.
