The Galle Gladiators were the first team to make their way into the Lanka Premier League 2021 Final. They will be playing the same team that they defeated in Qualifier 1, the Jaffna Kings. This is going to be the fourth time that the two teams play each other in this edition and all three of the previous matches have been won by the Galle Gladiators.
Despite that, the cricket betting sites are all picking the Jaffna Kings as the favorites to win the LPL 2021 Final. Let us have a look at the two teams and see which is the team to back, as well as explore some betting opportunities.
Match Prediction and cricket betting tips for Galle Gladiators vs Jaffna Kings LPL 2021. The match is going to be played at the Mahinda Rajapaksa International Stadium, Hambantota on the 23rd of December 2021.
The Galle Gladiators were helped in their previous match by brilliant batting performances from Kusal Mendis and Gunathilaka. Both of these two batsmen have the most at stake since they have been cast out from Sri Lanka national cricket at the moment and they chose the right time to get their act together. A similar sort of strong performance will be needed in the LPL 2021 Final because the other remaining batsmen do not fill us with confidence.
They have Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Mohammad Hafeez, and Samit Patel, all of whom can bat but are unlikely to be match-winners on their own.
The bowling attack of the Galle Gladiators has done quite well. Mohammad Amir is always a threat in the big matches while Samit Patel and Isuru Udana have a lot of experience playing T20 cricket around the world as well. Interestingly, it was Nuwan Thushara that tripped up the Jaffna Kings in the previous match with five wickets to his name.
Having beaten the Jaffna Kings three times in a row will fill the Galle Gladiators with a lot of confidence.

Jaffna Kings recovered from their loss in Qualifier 1 to stage a strong victory in Qualifier 2 and roar into the final. Avishka Fernando smashed a brilliant century and Rahmanullah Gurbaz scored a very impressive 70 as well. Both of these batsmen are going to be the key to the success of the Jaffna Kings in this match as well. They are momentum-driven players and can get on some excellent run-scoring sprees when in good form.
You can look to choose one of these two for the Top Batsman Jaffna Kings betting market. The middle-order for the Jaffna Kings is very strong as well. Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Shoaib Malik, Thisara Perera, or even Wanindu Hasaranga are capable of scoring runs freely and are difficult to pin down.
We think the Jaffna Kings have the stronger batting lineup for sure.
The bowling attack for the Jaffna Kings is world-class and we would pick it over the one the Galle Gladiators have any day. The Kings have Wahab Riaz, Wanindu Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana, and Suranga Lakmal in their lineup. There are no weak links plus the presence of Thisara Perera gives them flexibility as well in case one of the bowlers is having a bad day.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. Both teams won their previous match while batting first and this is what they are going to try and do once more.

The conditions in Hambantota are very good for cricket. There is no rain predicted for match day and the pitch is expected to be a batting beauty. The boundaries at this ground are not the longest and the outfield is very fast. The ball also comes nicely onto the bat. All of this indicates that a high-scoring match is in store. We think something around 170 should be seen as par batting first but that teams would aim for 180-190 for sure.

We are going to bet on the Jaffna Kings to win. They have a stronger batting lineup and their bowling unit is world-class. Do not discount the fact that the Galle Gladiators have won their previous three matches against the Jaffna Kings. If you get an opportunity to hedge, take it.
Bet on the Jaffna Kings to win.
Rahmanullah gurbaz has two fifty plus scores in his previous two matches and is in very good form. He opens the batting and is able to attack from the very first ball he faces. We are happy to back him to score runs in this match as well.
Hambantota is a high-scoring venue but the pressure of the LPL Final is going to play its role. We always see players be a bit more cautious in the finals and this is why we are betting on less than 13.5 sixes being hit in this match.
