Mumbai Indians are the 5/2 favourites to win the 2021 Indian Premier League.
The Indians are going for a third title in a row and bookmaker Coral believes they will achieve the feat.
The tournament begins on Friday, when Mumbai take on Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Mumbai are odds on at 4/6 to get off to a winning start.
Delhi Capitals, who they beat in the final last year, are second favourites to win the tournament at 5/1.
Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad can be backed at 6/1.
"Mumbai will take some beating once again, and we make them the firm favourites to win their third IPL in a row," Coral's Harry Aitkenhead told FreeTips.com.
"The format means they will always have to overcome some tricky knockout fixtures and this year we can see Bangalore and Hyderabad going closer than they have in the last two years."
Jos Buttler is a 12/1 shot with Coral to finish the tournament as top runscorer.
