DC vs CSK Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Mar 31, 2024

The Chennai Super Kings are the defending champions of the IPL and have looked the team toi beat in the first stages of IPL 2024 as well. They have won both their matches and now take on a struggling Delhi Capitals team still looking for its first win. Is this is the biggest mismatch in the IPL? Quite possibly. 

DC vs CSK Head to Head

There have been 29 matches played between DC and CSK with the latter winning 19 of them. DC has won just 10 of these matches but perhaps more importantly, it has lost the most recent four matches it has played against CSK.

DC vs CSK Team Previews

Delhi Capitals

DC is the home team in this contest even though the venue for this match is Visakhapatnam. That will be of little consolation to the team that has lost both its matches in IPL 2024 so far. Perhaps more important than those losses has been the inevitability of those results. Even when DC seems to be putting up a fight, you know it is going to take just one mistake for the entire team to crumble. 

Team selection has been a big problem for DC and we don't think they can correct their path very easily. David Warner is past his best, Mitchell Marsh is a constant under-performer in IPL cricket, and Rishab Pant is far from his best right now. This makes the top order very vulnerable and only something outstanding from Marsh seems capable of something special to turn things around. 

Whether he is actually going to do it is another question. 

DC's bowling attack looked a bit better in the previous match with the inclusion of Anrich Nortje and Mukesh Kumar. Both of these fast bowlers are world-class even though they can be a bit expensive. Kuldeep Yadav is in terrific form and continues to pick wickets in most matches. 

With Khaleel and Axar, DC has a bowling lineup that does not have any major weaknesses. Perhaps the time to replace someone like Sumit Kumar or Ricky Bhui has come so that Prithvi Shaw can get a run in the playing eleven as well.

Chennai Super Kings

CSK has not put a foot wrong in IPL 2024 so far. They have batted brilliantly and used their bowling resources very smartly. The addition of Rachin Ravindra and Daryl Mitchell to their lineup has made the team so much more dangerous that it is looking unstoppable at the moment. 

Rachin Ravindra, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shivam Duve, Daryl Mitchell, and a strong lower order to follow gives CSK a lot of depth. Dube is a proven spin-hitter and his battle with Kuldeep Yadav is going to be one to watch out for. As far as the bowling goes, Mustafizur Rahman has been the best of the lost so far with excellent support from Tushar Deshpande. 

Deepak Chahar had good figures in the previous match but we think he may be targetted by the DC opening batters. 

MS Dhoni has not had to do anything in the tournament so far and CSK has not been tested. It will be interesting to see how the team responds if it is pushed in a corner. While the batting for CSK is looking very well-settled, the bowling unit can be attacked.

DC vs CSK Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to field first. This is the first match of IPL 2024 at Visakhapatnam and teams would like to see how the wicket behaves before batting on it.

Pitch and Conditions

There is no rain predicted in Visakhapatnam on match day and the temperatures should be quite comfortable as well. There is always some swing on offer with the new ball but after that, the pitch becomes slow and somewhat two-paced. We think a score of somewhere around 170 is going to be par at this venue. 

DC vs CSK Betting Tips

We are going to stick with the favorites and bet on the Chennai Super Kings to win. They have a stronger batting lineup and will also be full of confidence heading into this match. DC, on the other hand, is struggling to find the right combination and its players have not shown any kind of form so far. 

Bet on the Chennai Super Kings to win.

    Most Sixes

    Chennai Super Kings (1.75)


This is a relatively low rate for what you usually get for this market but a 75% return on this market almost seems too good! CSK is a prolific six-hitting team with Rachin Ravindra, Daryl Mitchell, and Shivam Dube in that lineup. They should have a good chance of helping you win this bet.

  1. Satbet


    Top Batter of the Match

    Rachin Ravindra (6.75)


A brilliant batter, Rachin Ravindra has been threatening to get a really big total in IPL 2024. He will attack from the first ball and look to clear sixes. We think there is a great case to be made for taking a punt on him in this match.

  1. Dafabet


    Total Sixes

    Under 15.5 (1.75)


The fact that DC has a decent bowling lineup while being terrible with the bat plays quite nicely for this betting market. The bowling will help keep the CSK batters somewhat in check while the batting will not contribute too much to the six tally itself. This is where we would advise going big.
