Adelaide Strikers v Sydney Thunder – Betting Tips and Prediction
This looks like being another close contest as both sides fight it out for a place in the play-offs.
Adelaide have put themselves in the driving seat after victory last time, but the Thunder will be keen to hit back.
Given how close this clash could be, looking at other markets aside from the outright winner is the way to go.
Weatherald Looks Good Value
Jake Weatherald has quietly gone about his business at the top of the order for Adelaide.
While big-hitting partner Alex Carey has been taking the headlines, Weatheald has been chalking up the runs in consistent fashion.
He has reached the 30s in his last two innings and a big score could be edging closer for the Strikers’ second-highest run-scorer this BBL.
His price of 4.5 with 22Bet to be his team’s top batsman in this game looks a good price.
Back Siddle for More Wickets
Peter Siddle has been in sublime form for the Strikers once again. Backing him to be their top bowler in this game makes plenty of appeal.
He has 18 wickets in 11 matches and bagged two more in the previous clash. Wes Agar is ahead of him in the wicket-taker charts but Siddle can build on his tally back at Adelaide.
This ground has brought the best out of him and his price of 3.75 with bet365 is a great bet.
Milne to Star for the Thunder
Adam Milne has not taken the wickets he would have liked so far this BBL but did bowl really well in the last clash between these two sides.
His pace attack only brought one wicket but his economy was brilliant and that will have given him a big boost heading into this one.
He looks a good bet to be Sydney’s top bowler at 3.6 with bet365.
