Wager: Top Chennai Super Kings Batter
Selection: Robin Uthappa
After 100% record on our two wagers on the eliminator matches.
We turn our attention to the IPL Final  between Chennai Super Kings CSK  & Kolkata Knight Riders KKR taking place Friday 15th 7.00 am Pacific Time in Dubai
Outright betting to win the trophy is very close and you can probably get  + 1.00 either side if you shop around
Again we will look at a derivative market for some edge
In the market Top Chennai Super Kings Batter / Batsman
Robin Uthappa is around + 4.00
Even though this season has been very successful for CSK finishing second in the ladder and being the first team to qualify for the final , their number three batting position has not been established until now.
Moeen Ali and Suresh Raina have been tried but in the last match played between these two teams at the same venue Robin Uthappa scored 63 runs and was narrowly beaten by opener Ruturaj Gaikwad  with 70
The 35 year old ex Indian international seems overpriced in a speculative market but is worth a small wager given the franchise are unlikely to alter their top order as it was a winning formula against exact same opponents only five days ago
