While the Super Kings will be favourites on paper, there's a lot that has gone on off the field that could pull back the two-time champions. The alleged spot-fixing controversy has now dragged the Super Kings into the picture too and there cannot be too much doubt that the players will be affected by all that's going on in the media.

On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians did go down to the Chennai Super Kings in the previous playoffs game but made most of their second change against the Rajasthan Royals as they went on to edge them out in the last over of the game. Now, having already played at the Eden Gardens, they will be in a much better shape to get the momentum in the final.

Nothing to choose from between the two sides for now, with SkyBet offering 10/11 for Chennai to win it a record third time while Mumbai at 1/1 (bet365) to make it their first title. 

As was on display in the Mumbai v Rajasthan playoffs, the track was not too conducive for stroke-play but the experience of having batted on those tracks coupled with poor fielding allowed the batsmen to get to a reasonable score. 

If both the bowling attacks do bowl to their potential, then scoring could become tough, allowing likes of Michael Hussey (9/4 at Boylesports to top-score for Chennai) and Dwayne Smith (10/3 at BetFred) to get a lot more opportunity to bat - given that they open the innings and are in good form.

Also have a look at MS Dhoni (13/2 at Boylesports) and Kieron Pollard (8/1 at Ladbrokes) in the top-scoring charts for the game.

Mitchell Johnson (9/2 at Stan James) could end up as the most economical bowler in the IPL 2013 final despite an under-par previous match.
