Good options for your IPL free bet
The tournament winners market is what sparks debate at the start of the competition and it is often wise to make your selection early before teams start winning and their odds shrink should you want to use your free IPL bet for this.
The top run scorer over the tournament’s history has always been a big name player with Chris Gayle winning the accolade in 2011 and 2012 and Sachin Tendulkar and Matthew Hayden having done so in previous years. Last year's top run scorer David Warner hit 562 runs though that was not even good enough to lead his side to the play-offs.
Sunrisers' David Warner managed an impressive 528 from just 14 matches while the others in the top five runs makers all played 16 games. With two players in the top five the Chennai Super Kings are a good IPL free bet for top run scorer thanks to some attacking cricket.
The market on best bowler has proved to be a little more unpredictable in recent years with the likes of Sohail Tanvir and Morne Morkel have picked up the award. In fact, Dwayne Bravo set a new record in 2013 by taking 32 wickets in the tournament, something few would have predicted. In 2014 Mohit Sharma from the Super Kings topped the charts with 23. Again Chennai had two players in the top five. Last year it was that man Bravo again, who took a total of 26.
A bowler hat-trick could be worth betting on as there have been at least one every season since 2008. A hat-trick is when a bowler takes three wickets in a row.
Other types of IPL Free Bets
The number of markets on which you can use your IPL free bets has grown remarkably over the past ten years. Where once punters were restricted to betting on the match winner and perhaps the number of runs scored in an innings, there is now the option to bet for free on the IPL on a vast number of different markets, including:
- Top team wicket taker
- Number of extras in an innings
- Batsmen match bets
- Number of runs within an over
- method of dismissal
- Highest opening partnership
- Century scored
- Total 4s and total 6s ......
These are just a handful of the markets now offered by most bookmakers on almost every international cricket match as well as many domestic ones too.
