Today’s bet involves the IPL, and whether Pollard can top the batting for the Mumbai Indians. It’s ok folks, I haven’t lost my mind, not Su, the Hi-de-Hi comedy actress with the unusual dress sense, but Kieron, the big hitting Trinidadian all-rounder.
Mumbai travel to Mohali to face the Kings XI Punjab this afternoon, and Pollard is top priced at 9/1 with Stan James to score the highest amount of runs for the Indians. He is lowest priced at 6/1 with BetFred.
The West Indian is running into form. He top scored for his side two matches ago with a brisk 70, and was a couple of lusty blows away from doing it again last time out.
He faces a Kings XI side that has spent much of its auction cash on a powerful batting line up, relying on local talent in the bowling department. This suggests Pollard could be coming in (he is seen as a floater in the batting line up, acting as an aggressive finisher) to face medium-paced fodder.
Throw in that this ground is one of the smallest in the tournament and the conditions are in place for a Pollard blast.
Good luck, campers!
Recommendation: Pollard to top score for Mumbai Indians at 9/1, Stan James
