Delhi Daredevils Are A Tempting Bet For The 2018 Indian Premier League

A brand spanking new Indian Premier League season gets underway on Saturday and it promises to be another enthralling campaign, with Delhi Daredevils potentially the pick of the prices to win the tournament for the very first time.

2018 Indian Premier League    
Tips Delhi Daredevils (each way)    Best Bet @ 8 / 1  
AD De Villiers top IPL batsman (each way) @ 16 / 1  
Bhuvneshwar Kumar top IPL bowler (each way) @ 10 / 1  

Top Batsman

It is Mumbai Indians who are 9/2 favourites for a fourth IPL titles in six years following their successes of 2013, 2015 and 2017, and Mahela Jayawardene's defending champions are the team to beat.

Perennial underachievers Royal Challengers Bangalore are 4/1 as they look to their big hitting trio of Virat Kohli, Brendon McCullum and AB De Villiers to sparkle. De Villiers looked in fine touch during South Africa's recent Test series win over Australia and he is a very tempting 16/1 to be top IPL batsman this year (Bet Victor).

De Villiers' ranked 4th for total runs at the 2015 IPL (513 runs) and 3rd in 2016 (687), although his return of 216 runs when not fully fit in 2017 was disappointing. Expect the South African to prosper now he is back in peak condition and he is a great bet for that coveted Orange Cap this spring.

Rajasthan Royals (9/1) will have to do without their own star batsman, Steve Smith, but they can call upon Ben Stokes, while the 2016 winners Sunrisers Hyderabad (13/2) are without David Warner.

Top Bowler

Sunrisers can call upon the uber-consistent Bhuvneshwar Kumar and the Indian seamer is 10/1 to be top IPL bowler yet again (Coral). Kumar topped the wicket-taking charts at both the 2016 (23 scalps) and 2017 (26) IPL tournaments, which came after he finished 3rd in the bowler rankings with 20 wickets in 2014 and tied 6th with 18 in 2015.

The Outright Winner

Kings XI Punjab (10/1) will be reliant on the runs of Chris Gayle, while Kolkata Knight Riders have shown progress under Head Coach Jacques Kallis, finishing 4th in 2016 and 3rd in 2017. However, they have lost Shakib Al Hasan and their captain Gautam Gambhir has headed to Delhi Daredevils.

The addition of Gambhir could prove to be quite a coup for Delhi, who have also appointed the brilliant Ricky Ponting as their head coach. Ponting, who guided the Mumbai Indians to IPL glory in 2015, takes over a side that has often put their faith in youngsters during seasons gone by but they appear to have a nice blend of youth and experience this year.

Glenn Maxwell, Colin Munro, Chris Morris and Daniel Christian are all-rounders of the highest quality, while Trent Boult and Mohamed Shami could form a potent seam attack. The ever-green Amit Mishra, who has taken 134 IPL wickets in his career, offers a spin threat and Sandeep Lamichhane will be looking to impress as the first ever Nepalese cricketer to play IPL.

Delhi haven't made it out of the league stage since 2012 but they appear to be primed for a big showing under Ponting and can be backed at 8/1 with Paddy Power.
