The Punjab Kings and the Lucknow Super Giants are going to be playing their next IPL 2022 match against each other. Both teams are a part of the packed mid-field that is fighting for playoff places right now. The Punjab Kings have four wins from eight matches while the Lucknow Super Giants have five wins from their eight.
This is the first time that these two teams are going to be playing against each other in IPL 2022. The IPL betting sites are currently offering shorter odds on the Lucknow Super Giants to win this match, making them the favorites. The difference in odds is not much and as we have seen, no team can be counted out in the IPL.
Match prediction and IPL betting tips for Punjab Kings vs Lucknow Super Giants IPL 2022. The match is going to be played at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune on the 29th of April 2022.
Punjab Kings made a couple of changes to their team for their match against CSK and they seemed to pay off. Bhanuka Rajapaksa continued to score freely while Rishi Dhawan played a very important role with the ball as well. This means that PBKS is playing with Rajapaksa, Livingstone, and Bairstow in the middle-order, a ferocious batting lineup on paper!
The problem could be that a couple of players are batting out of position and Livingstone himself may not get as much time in the middle as needed. Dhawan top-scored with 88 in the previous match and played quite brilliantly to emphasize the amount of batting talent in this PBKS lineup.
Arshdeep Singh was in the news for his brilliant death bowling and the stats certainly suggest that he has been doing this job successfully for quite a while now. He may be under a bit more pressure now that the focus is on him but for the time being, it looks like PBKS has an excellent death bowling option to turn to.
Kagiso Rabada and Rahul Chahar are the three lynchpins of this bowling lineup. We do think that Rishi Dhawan and Sandeep Sharma can be put under pressure by a skilled batting lineup.

LSG struggled to get to 168 in the previous match even though KL Rahul scored a century. To be able to defend that total with ease, in the end, should give the lineup a lot of confidence. Krunal Pandya picked up three wickets, Dushmanth Chameera and Jason Hodler were superb at the death, while Ravi Bishnoi was back to his economic best.
LSG's bowling lineup seems to have shaped up quite well now that Dushmanth Chameera is bowling so well and Marcus Stoinis is available in an all-round role as well.
The big issue for LSG may be the fact that it is still very dependent on KL Rahul for its runs. Quinton de Kock and Marcus Stoinis have not really been able to contribute much with the bat leaving the bulk of the work to be done by Rahul. Also, Manish Pandey is in the middle of a terrible run and is just not able to score enough runs or maintain a high enough strike rate to be effective.
Krunal Pandya, Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, and even Jason holder are all required to contribute with the bat regularly for LSG. In his current form, betting on KL Rahul to score runs seems to be the easy betting option here.

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. That has been the preferred option for the overwhelming majority of the teams so far and we don't think that is going to change.

The conditions in Pune have been quite good for bowling. There has been a clear effort to leave some extra grass on the surface that has allowed the fast bowlers to get some help from the surface and also for the batsmen to use the pace to play their shots. The large boundaries also bring the spinners into play. We expect a match in which something around 170 should be par for the course.

We are going to bet on the Lucknow Super Giants to win. We think they have a stronger bowling lineup and with KL Rahul in form, their batting is also quite dangerous. The fact that this match is being played in Pune should also play into the hands of the Lucknow Super Giants.
Bet on Lucknow Super Giants to win.
One of the biggest surprises this season has been the form of Bhanuka Rajapaksa. He is scoring runs consistently and although he takes a few risks, they have been coming off in IPL 2022. The Over/Under line is quite fair and worth a punt.
Not only has Chameera been very effective with the new ball but he also seems to have gotten a lot better at bowling during the death overs. All his overs come during the time when wickets tend to fall and so at 4x returns, you could choose to play a small bet.
This is is one of our favorite bets for this match. Stoinis has shown signs of form but has not really been able to come up with a big inning so far. He is, however, being utilized almost exclusively in the last five overs of the batting inning. This will give him the license to go for the sixes. This is the betting market where we would be most aggressive in.
