Big Bash League Week 4
6:05pm Hobart Hurricanes vs Adelaide Strikers @ Blundstone Arena
The Hurricanes aren’t always the easiest team to follow, but they looked good when beating the Melbourne Stars on Friday.
They are one of the better defensive teams on their day and given the struggles of the Strikers this season, we’re picking Hobart to do the job.
Bookmakers are offering $1.66, which is a fair price.
Betting tip: Hobart Hurricanes @ $1.66 – Bet @ Sportsbet
9:05pm Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Stars @ The Gabba
We struggle to back the Brisbane Heat with any confidence, and despite winning two of their five games, we don’t fancy their chances.
The Stars aren’t going much better, but they have been playing tough opposition and should find the Heat more to their liking.
Look for a big outing from Marcus Stoinis, who could lead the Stars to victory.
Betting tip: Melbourne Stars @ $1.66 – Bet @ Sportsbet
7:15pm Sydney Thunder vs Perth Scorchers @ Manuka Oval
We liked the chances of the Perth Scorchers this season and they haven’t let us down.
The Scorchers are a perfect six-from-six, so the Thunder have a huge challenge at home on Tuesday night.
Sydney has played capable of handling the outstanding bowling attack from the Scorchers, but with momentum on their side, we’re taking Perth to win.
Betting tip: Perth Scorchers @ $1.73 – Bet @ Sportsbet
6:05pm Sydney Sixers vs Brisbane Heat @ SCG
It’s the second time the Brisbane Heat play this week and punters will get a good guide against the Melbourne Stars.
However, even if they play well on Monday, we’re expecting the Sydney Sixers to be too tough to handle.
They have been playing excellent cricket and it should continue against the struggling visitors.
Betting tip: Sydney Sixers – Bet @ Sportsbet
7:15pm Melbourne Renegades vs Hobart Hurricanes @ Marvel Stadium
It comes as no shock to see the Melbourne Renegades at the bottom of the Big Bash ladder.
They own just one win from five games and we don’t see their record improving much over the next few weeks.
Hobart has already had a game to prepare and we expect bookmakers to have them as short favourites on the road.
Betting tip: Hobart Hurricanes – Bet @ Sportsbet
7:15pm Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Stars @ Marvel Stadium
Two of the more talented teams meet on Thursday night, but based on their form so far, we’re taking the Perth Scorchers.
Unbeaten form is tough to overlook, and although we respect what the Melbourne Stars can do, we haven’t seen it consistently enough.
Punters could get value for the Scorchers against the public-heavy Stars.
Betting tip: Perth Scorchers – Bet @ Sportsbet
7:15pm Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Thunder @ Adelaide Oval
The Strikers and Thunder are evenly-matched teams and that should be reflected in betting markets.
We give the slight edge to the Thunder based on what we’ve seen so far, but playing at home is a massive advantage for the Strikers.
They play well at the Adelaide Oval, so put the Strikers on your ticket.
Betting tip: Adelaide Strikers – Bet @ Sportsbet
4:00pm Hobart Hurricanes vs Brisbane Heat @ Blundstone Arena
Hobart could have a big week if everything goes well, but either way, we expect them to handle the struggling Heat.
The Hurricanes love to set a moderate total and defend, so expect that strategy if they win the toss. Batting first is paramount for this team, but punters should be confident.
Punters should get value odds on game night.
Betting tip: Hobart Hurricanes – Bet @ Sportsbet
7:30pm Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Renegades @ Cex International Stadium
Punters often get good odds for the Renegades, but due to their lack of success, it’s tough to take.
They will be at value odds against the Sixers on Saturday and we get the feeling they’ll pull off an upset.
It will require the underwhelming batting lineup to produce the goods, but they’re good enough for an upset result.
Betting tip: Melbourne Renegades – Bet @ Sportsbet
3:30pm Melbourne Stars vs Perth Scorchers @ Junction Oval
The Melbourne Stars host the return game and we think they could end the unbeaten run of the Scorchers.
It’s tough to line up the form without seeing the result from earlier in the week, but the conditions should suit the Stars better.
Because of the Scorchers form, punters should get value odds for the Stars.
Betting tip: Melbourne Stars – Bet @ Sportsbet
7:15pm Sydney Thunder vs Adelaide Strikers @ Spotless Stadium
The Sydney Thunder is tough to beat at home and we give them the slight edge over the Strikers.
It should be another close market with bookmakers, but we framed the Thunder at $1.72, so those odds would be worth taking to close out a busy week of BBL action.
It could pay to follow betting moves with this game.
