LSG vs PBKS Match Prediction & Betting Tips - Mar 30, 2024

The Lucknow Super Giants are looking for their first victory of IPL 2024 as they take on the Punjab Kings. This is also an opportunity for the Punjab Kings to get back to winning ways after a close loss against RCB in their previous outing. We do not know what kind of surface will be in store at Lucknow since this is the first match of the season that will be played there.

LSG vs PBKS Team Previews

Lucknow Super Giants

LSG did not have a good match against RR at all. It lost early wickets and was always behind the asking run-rate before some pyrotechnics by Nicholas Pooran brought them close. The batting performance was unconvincing in the sense that it was lacking intent at the top from KL Rahul and the middle order looked wobbly.

However, we do believe that there is a lot of potential in the batting lineup. Quinton de Kock and Devdutt Padikkal are two brilliant attacking left-handers to have in the top order and should match up quite nicely against the PBKS bowling. In fact, KL Rahul also has a good record against PBKS and will be looking to cash in. 

With Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni, and Nicholas Pooran in that lineup, there is no dearth of firepower. We just hope Nicholas Pooran does not get slotted too deep in the batting lineup and is unable to make an impact.

The bowling lineup in the previous match was very poor. Mohsin Khan and Yash Thkaur went for 88 runs in seven overs. Naveen ul Haq was expensive as well and only Krunal Pandya was able to check the flow of runs. This is an area where LSG may have to make some changes to try and get their balance right.

Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings have been one of the least impressive sides in IPL 2024. They were lucky to beat DC but failed to capitalize on some clear chances against RCB. There are some serious problems with the PBKS batting lineup that we think will prevent them from mounting a serious challenge for the title this season as well. 

Shikhar Dhawan's strike rate is not good enough in today's day and age. He is very consistent and bats a long time but that could actually end up putting more pressure on the players around him. Jonnny Bairstow has threatened to score quickly but has lost his wicket early in both matches. 

We don't rate Prabhsimran Singh or Sam Curran very highly with the bat, especially how they are being used in PBKS. Liam Livingstone is world-class in this format but he is not the most consistent either. PBKS's batting always seems just one or two wickets away from trouble. 

The bowling lineup is not much better either. Harpreet Brar was the standout bowler in the previous match, well supported by Kagiso Rabada. Apart from those two, though, PBKS is struggling to find any measure of control. Arshdeep Singh has been expensive, Rahul Chahar has made no impact, and Sam Curran is not much of a threat either. 

PBKS is quite easily the weaker team in this contest.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions have been a bit more difficult for scoring in Lucknow than at other venues. Spin also plays a pretty big part in the scheme of things. The average winning score batting first is 158, quite a bit lower than all other IPL venues. 

There is no rain expected in Lucknow for this match and we shold not have any interruptions.

LSG vs PBKS Betting Tips

We are going to bet on the home team to win this match. Lucknow Super Giants underperformed in the previous match but underestimating their talent could be dangerous. We think they have a stronger batting lineup, better spinners, and are very well suited to take advantage of their home conditions. 

Bet on the Lucknow Super Giants to win.

Nicholas Pooran is in terrific form. He has the ability to make a massive impact in a short amount of time and that is why his batting position does not bother us. We think he should be able to score over 17.5 runs against a weak PBKS bowling attack.

We are very surprised to get this price on LSG and will take it with both hands. LSG has a number of renowned six-hitters that can clear the boundaries very easily. You can go big here to maximize your profits.

    Under 66.5 (1.85)


The Over/Under line seems a bit high to us for this match. Lucknow is not a ground where big scores are made generally and with the onus on strike rate, players may be forced to take more risks than usual. Bet the Under here.
