will start as favourites today as all players are in form. The team management is also consistent  in selecting the playing 11. MI is also one of the few teams who made only one change in its playing 11 in 5 matches played so far. However, it won't be wise to right-off straight away given the firepower in the team. If Jos Buttler, Steve Smith and Sanju Samson are able to put a good show, Royals wil give tough fight. 
Another worry is the middle order in which Robin Uthappa and Riyan Parag haven't been able to impress much.
