Chennai Super Kings v Gujarat Titans: Prediction, Tips and Odds

New Chennai Super Kings captain Ruturaj Gaikwad can lead from the front when his side face Gujarat Titans in a repeat of last year's IPL final.

Ravindra Jadeja hit a six and a four off the last two balls to seal the Super Kings' victory over the Titans in last season's IPL final and another gripping contest is expected when the teams meet on Tuesday.

Gujarat, IPL champions in their maiden season in 2022, beat Mumbai Indians in their opening game of the campaign on Sunday and they are 11/10 to claim victory in Chennai.

Chennai Super Kings v Gujarat Titans betting tips and predictions

Ruturaj Gaikwad Chennai Super Kings top batter - 5/2

Last season's finalists both appointed new captains this term with Ruturaj Gaikwad succeeding Chennai legend MS Dhoni and Shubman Gill taking charge of Gujarat after Hardik Pandya's move to Mumbai.

Gill will have been delighted with his bowlers in Sunday's clash with Mumbai, who stumbled from 107-2 to 162-9 in a six-run defeat in Ahmedabad.

However, the Titans skipper should be wary of his opposite number Gaikwad, who was the leading IPL runscorer in 2021 and has a magnificent record against Gujarat.

In five matches against the Titans, the CSK opener has scored 73, 53, 92, 60 and 26 off 16 balls in last season's final.

The India international top-scored for Chennai in the first four of those matches and he should be backed to outscore his teammates on Tuesday, especially with prolific New Zealand opener Devon Conway still sidelined by a broken thumb.

Conway was the only Chennai player to score more than Gaikwad's 590 runs last season and the classy Indian right-hander made his first international century in November, cracking an unbeaten 123 from just 57 balls in a T20I against Australia.

Spencer Johnson Gujarat Titans top bowler - 15/4

Australian fast bowler Spencer Johnson had a tough introduction to the IPL on Sunday, conceding 23 runs in his first seven deliveries for Gujarat against Mumbai.

The left-armer came back strongly, however, taking two crucial wickets for two runs from the next five balls he bowled to help the Titans to a tense victory.

Johnson will be hoping for another opportunity to showcase his skills in the death overs on Tuesday and he looks a big price to be Gujarat's top bowler.

This season's rule change allowing two bouncers per over should benefit him and his second wicket against Mumbai was a catch off his own bowling after Gerald Coetzee attempted to pull a nasty short ball.

Johnson took 4-26 in Brisbane Heat's Big Bash final victory in January, having picked up 3-20 in the playoff Challenger, and he can kick on after Sunday's eventful IPL debut.

Highest individual score under 69.5 - 5/6

The MA Chidambaram Stadium is one of the IPL's more bowler-friendly venues so backing the highest individual score to be under 69.5 could prove profitable.

Gujarat's bowlers rallied superbly to tame Mumbai's big hitters on Sunday and spinners Rashid Khan and Sai Kishore could be a handful in Chennai.

The Super Kings lacked a bit of ruthlessness in their first game against Bengaluru but they reduced a star-studded RCB top order to 78-5 with Bangladesh left-armer Mustafizur Rahman taking 4-29.

In last season's matches at Chennai's home ground the highest individual scores were 57, 52, 77, 92, 64, 35, 57 and 60 and Bengaluru's Anuj Rawat (48) was the only player to pass 40 in Friday's game.

Gill top-scored for Gujarat with a laboured 42 off 38 balls in last term's playoff defeat in Chennai and batsmen may have to work hard for their runs in Tuesday's contest.
