Titans vs Knights Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips


The Titans host the Knights at Centurion in the final round robin match of the 2020 Momentum Cup. It is a winner takes all scenario with only one play available in the playoffs. The Knights have the momentum going so I’m backing them to win with Andries Gous backed in the run scoring markets.

For the Titans, Aiden Markram is backed to score 50+ runs after two 100+ scores in his last four matches. 

Titans Form


The Titans have given themselves a fair shot at the playoffs with two victories in their last two matches but they haven’t managed three victories in a row this season.

The Titans last match finished with a six wicket victory against bottom of the table Cobras in Benoni. Bowling first the Titans restricted the Cobaras to 164 runs in 32 overs after the rain reduced the amount of overs.

In response Dean Elgar hit 61 runs as the Titans won with one over remaining. This victory sent he Pretoria-based franchise into the fourth position but defeat to the Knights will see them make the playoffs.

Aiden Markram has scored two 100+ scores in the last four matches for the Titans so I’m going to back in to score 50+ in this match.

Titans News


The return of Aiden Markram has brought some consistency to the Titans batting. Over the last three matches the Titans have made few changes and are likely to go with the same line-up. 

With South Africa’s tour to India cancelled we could see Heinrich Klaasen return to the line-up should he return in time.

Knights Form


After a nightmare start to the 2020 Momentum Cup the Knights have turned their fortunes around with three wins in their last four completed matches. This gives them an opportunity to make the playoffs with the winner of this match taking the spoils.

Their last match was rained out against the Lions in Bloemfontein after the Knights restricted the Lions to 188 in 42 overs. They never returned after that.

Andries Gous however smashed 163 just three matches ago against the Titans and is tipped to get among the runs again. The Knights are the form team and have all the momentum heading into this clash so I fancy them to get over the line.

Knights News


The Knights have found some superb form recently and are unlikely to change their line-up from the last outing.

Titans vs Knights Head to Head


The Knights and Titans have shared the spoils in their last four matches, winning two apiece. Their last match, earlier this season, ended with a Knights six-wicket victory in Kimberley. 

Titans vs Knights Betting Odds


The Titans are favourites at 1.57 to win with the Knights priced at 2.37. Aiden Markram is valued at 3.00 to be the Titans best batsman with Dean Elgar paying 4.33. 

The Knights' Andries Gous can be backed at 4.33 to be their best batsman while Pite van Biljon is paying 6.00.

Titans vs Knights Match Up


The Titans have been magnificent in recent matches with bat in hand but all too often the bowlers have let them down. How the Titans bowlers perform will be key to the outcome while the Knights batsmen have been in fine form themselves.

For the Knight they will look to target Aiden Markram and Dean Elgar as the most dangerous Titans batsmen. Should they get those two cheaply the Knights will fancy their chances.
