2021-22 Big Bash League Final

Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers Betting Prediction

The Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers met on Saturday and it was the Scorchers who came out ahead by 49 runs.

They set a total of 189/3 and Sydney was knocked over for 140 in return. However, just because that result went Perth’s way, doesn’t mean history will strike twice.

The Sixers always play well in the final, and although we have liked Perth all season, there isn’t much value in their price with bookmakers.

Perth is paying $1.38 to beat Sydney and claim another Big Bash title, but given the nature of T20 cricket and being under finals pressure, Sydney could be the better team to back.

It still has a quality lineup that can get hot at any stage and backing short-priced favourites in this format isn’t a sound betting strategy. The Sixers are paying $3.05 to win another BBL title and those odds might be too good to pass up on.

If the likes of Moises Henriques and Daniel Hughes get off to a good start with the bat, the bowlers will find their groove later in the game. Winning the toss would help, but we’re confident in the ability of Sean Abbott and Lloyd Pope to take important wickets.

For the price, Sydney is a much better bet for the final.

Betting tip: Sydney Sixers @ $3.05Bet @ Sportsbet

Perth Scorchers Top Run Scorer

The Perth Scorchers have a deep batting lineup, but we think the opening batsmen could get in trouble early. Therefore, we’re backing Colin Munro to top score.

He had 12 runs not out when they last met, but he should get more opportunity to post a big total on Friday might. The New Zealand representative is one of the biggest hitters in the game and he could get Perth out of a sticky early situation.

He’s currently on the fifth line of betting at $5 and those odds are too good to pass up. He has already had some incredible totals this season and he could leave his best to last.

Betting tip: Colin Munro @ $5Bet @ Sportsbet

Sydney Sixers Top Run Scorer

We expect Moises Henriques to step up when his team needs him the most. He is a big game player and easily capable of producing the goods.

Henriques got off to a slow start when scoring 17 runs on Saturday, but his teammates were falling around him and he was just trying to keep it together.

We expect the game to go a little differently in the final and he’s a quality player on his day, so stick with him. Bookmakers have him as favourite to lead the Sixers in the run scoring department, so there is market confidence.

Betting tip: Moises Henriques @ $3.75Bet @ Sportsbet

Top Wicket Taker Picks

We love betting on Andrew Tye in the big games and he could take the most wickets for the Perth Scorchers.

He bowls in the big moments, which can often lead the opposition to make poor choices. Tye is the second favourite for the Scorchers at $4 and he’s worth having on your ticket.

The current Scorchers favourite is Jhye Richardson at $3.75, but the value is with Tye to have a big outing.

Leading the way for the Sixers is Sean Abbott, who has the class to rip through the opening order. He likes to take early wickets and we think the Scorchers could be in for a rude awakening early in the final.

Take Abbott at $3.50 to be the Sixers leading wicket taker.

Betting tip: Sean Abbott @ $3.50Bet @ Sportsbet
