Big Bash League Week 6

Monday 10/1/22

2:10pm Hobart Hurricane vs Sydney Thunder @ MCG

The Sydney Thunder have been one of the better teams over the last few weeks. We think they’re good enough to score an upset on Monday afternoon.

Hobart has also been playing well with five wins from 10 games, but after the Thunder’s huge performance against the Renegades, we’re in their camp.

Betting tip: Sydney Thunder @ $1.62Bet @ Sportsbet

7:15pm Melbourne Stars vs Adelaide Strikers @ MCG

Who would have thought the Melbourne Stars would be at the bottom of the table after eight games?

We didn’t, but the Adelaide Strikers aren’t much better. They have two wins from nine games, but they’re ahead of the Stars based on bonus points.

Bookmakers have the Stars as favourites at $1.73, which is a fair price for what should be a close contest.

Betting tip: Melbourne Stars @ $1.73Bet @ Sportsbet

Tuesday 11/1/22

2:10pm Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Stars @ GMHBA

The Melbourne Stars play their second game in two days and we don’t think they’ll enjoy it, especially against the Perth Scorchers.

Perth leads the Big Bash league with nine wins from 11 games, so the Scorchers are the testing material and they should out ahead.

Punters should expect the Scorchers to be red-hot favourites unless the Stars win on Monday in dominant fashion.

7:15pm Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Sixers @ GMHBA

Just when it looked like the Melbourne Renegades were back on track, they score only 80 runs against the Thunder.

They were chasing a big total of 209, but the chase didn’t last long, so it was a shame to see their improved form come to an end.

Sydney has slipped to third on the BBL ladder, but this is an ideal chance to make ground on the Scorchers and Thunder.

Wednesday 12/1/22

7:15pm Brisbane Heat vs Adelaide Strikers @ The Gabba

The Heat and Strikers can’t seem to gather any momentum and we could see them near the bottom of the ladder soon.

Brisbane couldn’t muster much against the Hurricanes on Saturday. It scored 144/8 and was chased down with 16 balls remaining.

Adelaide plays its second game in the week and that situation should favour the Heat at home.

Thursday 13/1/22

3:45pm Sydney Thunder vs Hobart Hurricanes @ Marvel Stadium

The Thunder and Hurricanes play again and the betting odds will depend on which team takes the opening game on Monday.

We think the Thunder can get it done on both occasions, but it will pay to wait until seeing what happens on Monday.

Betting tip: Sydney ThunderBet @ Sportsbet

7:35pm Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars @ Marvel Stadium

It’s an important week for the Renegades and Stars, who could be languishing at the bottom of the table.

The Stars still have enough talent to make the playoffs, but they’ll need to start producing their best cricket. Playing the Renegades helps, so the local derby should go to the favourite.

The Renegades won the most recent meeting, but it should be different this time around.

Betting tip: Melbourne StarsBet @ Sportsbet

Friday 14/1/22

10:40am Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers @ Adelaide Oval

The Perth Scorchers will be hot favourites to score a win on the road and we’re backing them in.

They have been good to punters so far this season, which can’t be said for the struggling Adelaide Strikers.

Take the safer bet and lock in the Scorchers to record another victory.

Betting tip: Perth ScorchersBet @ Sportsbet

Saturday 15/1/22

10:40am Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Stars @ Adelaide Oval

It could be another long week for the Adelaide Strikers, who face a desperate Melbourne Stars outfit.

The Stars are at the bottom of the table, but with three games on the schedule this week, they could lift themselves off the bottom.

We expect betting markets to be in favour of the Stars, so we’re sticking with them.

Betting tip: Melbourne StarsBet @ Sportsbet

6:40pm Sydney Sixers vs Sydney Thunder @ SCG

It’s the featured game of the week as the Sixers take on the Thunder on Saturday night.

We have loved what the Thunder have produced over the last couple of weeks, so they could knock off their rivals.

We expect the markets to frame a close contest, but give the edge to the Thunder.

Betting tip: Sydney ThunderBet @ Sportsbet

Sunday 16/1/22

7:15pm Melbourne Stars vs Brisbane Heat @ MCG

The busy week for the Melbourne Stars continues and we’re backing them in again.

It’s a make-or-break week for the Stars, who are at the bottom of the ladder. They could rise up to third or fourth if they win every game, so a lot could change this week.

Brisbane hasn’t been overly impressive either, so take the Stars to secure the win.
