Big Bash League Playoffs Predictions

Friday 19/1/24

7:40pm Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Sixers @ Heritage Bank Stadium

Despite being top of the table, the Heat haven’t got much respect from Big Bash betting markets.

They won seven of their 10 games but suffered only one loss. Their form entering the playoffs was impressive, so we’re surprised to see the odds.

Punters get $2.13 for the home side is a generous price from bookmakers, and although it’s not being played at The Gabba, Heritage Bank Stadium is still in Queensland.

The Sixers, who are the $1.72 favourites, finished second on the ladder with six wins and two losses. They didn’t look good early, but they rattled off many wins recently.

They are playing well heading into the finals with three consecutive wins, compared to a recent loss for the Heat. However, the Heat have been the best team consistently throughout the season.

We can’t turn down the value for the Heat, and we’re snapping up the odds before they shorten. Punters could catch on to the value price, and it could firm to around $2.05.

Betting tip: Brisbane Heat @ $2.13

Saturday 20/1/24

7:40pm Perth Scorchers vs Adelaide Strikers @ Optus Stadium

The Perth Scorchers might have lost three of their last five games, but they are the defending champions, and they demand respect.

The sportsbook has them at $1.53, so they’re the short-priced favorites to beat the Strikers, who played their best cricket entering the playoffs.

Despite a rocky beginning, the Strikers rattled off four consecutive wins to overtake the Hurricanes and charge into fourth position.

It’s an impressive run to the finals but beating the Scorchers in Perth is one of the hardest tasks in Big Bash cricket.

As much as we respect the Strikers’ form leading into the playoffs, we respect the Scorchers ability to win playoff games.

They typically win the knockout games, as they did last season, so there’s no reason to bet against them in this situation.

We also like Aaron Hardie to top score for the Scorchers. He wants to get them off to a fast start in the hard conditions at Optus Stadium, and he could score over 50 runs.

Punters get $3.50 for Hardie to score the most runs of any Scorchers player, which is a fair price for their most aggressive batsman.

Take the odds, along with Perth to win outright. Both offer good value for punters, and it should be an excellent Big Bash playoff game on Saturday night.

Betting tip: Perth Scorchers @ $1.53
