Mumbai Indians betting
The Mumbai Indians are the most successful team in the short history of the Indian Premier League, having won titles in 2013, 2015 and 2017 — the only team to lift the trophy three times.
The reigning champions head into the 2018 season having retained captain Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya and Jaspreet Bumrah. The team management decided to stick with players who have done well with the franchise as all-rounders Kieron Pollard and Krunal Pandya were also secured.
Mumbai will certainly start as favorites as defending champions and will be determined to maintain their dominance in the coming season.
Let’s take a look at what the season holds and where we can find betting value.

How will the Mumbai Indians go in 2018?
Rohit Sharma has produced a lot of runs for the franchise since taking over the captaincy. The opener has produced scintillating performances for the side and has the tendency to deliver big scores when it matters the most.
The Mumbai Indians made some interesting additions to its batting lineup. Evin Lewis is going to open the innings alongside Rohit Sharma and JP Duminy is is an accomplished player in the T20 format.
Suryakumar Yadav and Saurabh Tiwary are experienced players in the batting department who will be keen to make an impression.
Mumbai released seasoned players like Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga and Mitchell Johnson. The franchise has gone for in-form bowlers like Pat Cummins, Jaspreet Bumrah and Akila Dhananjaya and they have plenty of depth in terms of all-rounders as Kieron Pollard, Hardik Pandya and Krunal Pandya bring a lot to the side with bat and ball.
Hardik Pandya will be a key player for the side after performing exceedingly well at the international level for India for the past one year. The all-rounder will be keen to do well for Mumbai Indians in this edition to make sure they successfully retain their crown in the coming season.

Tips for betting on Mumbai Indians
Most wickets betting: Jaspreet Bumrah will be our pick in the bowling department for most wickets this season. The pace bowler has been excellent with the new-ball and has a tendency to bowl well at death overs. Bumrah finished as the leading-wicket taker for Mumbai Indians last year and the franchise will be hoping that he can do even better with the ball in this year’s competition.
Most runs betting: There is no doubt that Rohit Sharma holds the key for Mumbai this season. The opener will be our pick for the coming season as leading run-scorer for the side. Sharma had an average outing with the bat last season but will look to do much better with the bat in this year’s competition.
Mumbai Indians Likely XI
Rohit Sharma, Saurabh Tiwary, Evin Lewis, JP Duminy, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Kieron Pollard, Jaspreet Bumrah, Ishan Kishen, Mustafizur Rahman/Rahul Chahar.
