Indian Premier League Outright Winner Betting Market
A long-term bet may be one you fancy playing on any of the teams in the Indian Premier League, and if so then you should consider placing such bets on the outright winner of the league and as such here are all the teams in that league and their current odds on them winning the league outright and being crowned champions this year.
The current favourites to win the Indian Premier League outright at the Chennai Super Kings and there is some value to be had betting on them at their current odds of 5/2, however there is another team that many people ae betting on to win and that is the current second favourite that team being the Sunrisers Hyderabad whose odds are 3/1.
A couple of other teams that are attracting some money in the betting markets are the Kings XI Punjab team at odds of 9/2 and the Kolkata Knight Riders whose odds are currently 5/1!
Those teams that are available at some much higher odds but do to be fair, have a chance albeit a small one of being the outright winner of this league at the end of the season include the Royal Challengers Bangalore team at 13/2 and quite surprisingly it does have to be said the Mumbai Indians do appear to be outsiders at their current odds of 12/1, so they may just be the value and a speculative bet too.
The final two teams who are in the running but at huge odds include the Rajasthan Royals and the Delhi Daredevils and you will find a plethora of betting sites all offering odds of around 33/1 on both of those two additional cricket teams winning the league outright!
