Who will win IPL 2024? Favourites and early betting odds

According to Dafabet, CSK are among the favourites to defend their crown to win a record-sixth IPL title, helped by the fact that MS Dhoni will continue to lead them.

Their rivals, MI, are the joint-favourites to lift the title. One can always expect a final between MI and CSK, who are a part of IPL’s most fierce rivalry. 

On the other hand, Sunrisers Hyderabad are expected to be the least likely to win IPL 2024. They broke the IPL franchise record in the auction to sign Australian World Cup winning captain Pat Cummins, but they finished 10th in the table in IPL 2023.

Kolkata Knight Riders, who later broke the record again to sign Mitchell Starc, are rated as sixth favourites. 

Here are the odds for each team to win IPL 2024:

Team Odds to win IPL 2024
Chennai Super Kings 6.00
Mumbai Indians 6.00
Gujarat Titans 8.00
