IPL Betting Tips & Predictions: Sunrisers Hyderabad v Mumbai Indians (Tuesday, May 4 15:00 BST)

Mumbai Indians will be looking to make it three wins in succession when they take on Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League at the Arun Jaitley Stadium on Tuesday. The Indians find themselves fourth on the ladder with four wins from seven, while the Sunrisers are rock bottom with just one win all season. Mumbai come into this game on the back of a four-wicket success against Chennai Super Kings on Saturday. The Indians bowled first, and they looked up against it as the Super Kings smashed 218-4 off 20 overs. That was a huge total to chase down, and they did so with Kieron Pollard (87 not out) hitting two runs off the final ball to seal a thrilling win. The Sunrisers suffered a 55-run defeat on Sunday against Rajasthan Royals. The Sunrisers bowled first, and they witnessed the Royals smashing 220-3 with Jos Buttler hitting 124 off 64 balls. The Sunrisers were up against it when they went into bat, and they could only post 165-8 off their 20 overs with Manish Pandey top-scoring with 31. I cannot see the Sunrisers knocking off Mumbai for their second win, so I am backing Mumbai to extend their winning run. The Indians are blessed with some big hitters, and I am backing opener Quinton de Kock to top score. When the Sunrisers bat, I expect England international Jonny Bairstow to score the most runs for Hyderabad.
