Big Bash League Week 5

Monday 4/01/21

Melbourne Stars vs. Hobart Hurricanes @ Blundstone Arena

These two teams squared off last Saturday and it was the Hurricanes coming out on top with a 21-run victory.

Looking to turn the tables are the Melbourne Stars, who have a great roster but haven’t been able to produce the results in the last few weeks.

We think the Stars could wrestle back the momentum from the Hurricanes, but it will be a close contest.

Bet: Melbourne Stars to win @ $1.95Bet @ Sportsbet

Brisbane Heat vs. Sydney Thunder @ The Gabba

The Brisbane Heat were only narrowly defeated by the Hurricanes last week, but they got back into the winner’s column with a win over the Sixers.

The four-wicket victory could get their season back on track, but that won’t be easy against a surging Thunder outfit, which is coming off a washed-out game.

Sydney is one of the form teams coming into Week 5 and we are not surprised to see bookmakers have them as the $1.70 favourites.

Tuesday 5/01/21

Melbourne Renegades vs. Adelaide Strikers @ Adelaide Oval

Nothing is going right for the Renegades and last week’s washout was another nail in the proverbial coffin. They were going well against the Thunder, forcing Sydney to chase 166 from 17 overs, but the game was cancelled.

They then took on the Scorchers and failed to score more than 89 runs – not for the first time this season. It was another dismal display and the Strikers should take advantage.

$1.68 is great shopping for punters as this Renegades outfit is all out of confidence.

Bet: Adelaide Strikers to win @ $1.68Bet @ Sportsbet

Wednesday 6/01/21

Perth Scorchers vs. Sydney Sixers @ Optus Stadium

Sydney rebounded from their loss to Brisbane with a comprehensive seven-wicket win over Adelaide on Sunday night.

It continues their momentum after winning three of their last four games, which included a 194-run effort against the Melbourne Stars.

Perth comes off back-to-back wins over Adelaide and Melbourne Renegades, which was needed after their 94-run effort against the Strikers earlier this season.

It is a tough game to call but we are siding with the Sixers in a close one.

Thursday 7/01/21

Hobart Hurricanes vs. Sydney Thunder @ Optus Stadium

A quality contest is expected to kick off the Thursday night double-header as the impressive Hurricanes battle the Thunder.

Hobart has been one of the more consistent teams this season, but the Thunder are arguably the most-improved since the season started.

The likes of Usman Khawaja and Alex Hales have gone from strength-to-strength, so we’re picking a minor upset in what could be a tough week for Hobart.

Bet: Sydney Thunder to winBet @ Sportsbet

Brisbane Heat vs. Melbourne Stars @ Metricon Stadium

The late game sees the Stars and Heat most likely needing a win to revitalise their season. It has been tough going for the Heat, but they have looked better in recent weeks.

The same can’t be said for Melbourne, who started the season on fire but winning has been tough to come by over the last few rounds in the Big Bash.

It could be a crucial game for both franchises but we give the edge to the Stars, who boast the betting batting lineup.

Bet: Melbourne Stars to winBet @ Sportsbet

Friday 8/01/21

Adelaide Strikers vs. Melbourne Renegades @ Adelaide Oval

Punters have lost all faith in the Melbourne Renegades and every game seems to be a struggle for this organisation.

Despite boasting some talented players, they can’t seem to perform on the pitch. A lack of enthusiasm hasn’t helped and despite the addition of Aaron Finch, he hasn’t done much to spark interest.

Adelaide is capable of making the playoffs and as they season progresses, they should continue to improve with every game.

Bet: Adelaide Strikers to winBet @ Sportsbet

Saturday 9/01/21

Perth Scorchers vs. Sydney Thunder @ Optus Stadium

Beating Sydney at home is never easy and we think the Thunder could be in for a successful week.

We respect the ability of this Perth outfit, which is coming off some steady performances. However, the Thunder are playing like a top-four spot is within their reach.

It didn’t look that way to start the season, but their experienced stars are flying and we don’t think the Scorchers will halt their momentum.

Bet: Sydney Thunder to winBet @ Sportsbet

Sunday 10/01/21

Sydney Sixers vs. Brisbane Heat @ Metricon Stadium

It could be a make-or-break week for the Heat and unfortunately for them, we’re going with break.

Their form hasn’t been great in 2021 and the Sixers are one of the more dangerous teams in the Big Bash, so a big total might be needed.

Bookmakers should side with the Sixers in this situation and they could close BBL Week 5 in style.
