Brisbane Heat v Adelaide Strikers – Betting Tips and Prediction
This looks like being a close battle between two sides that haven’t really got going as yet.
Preference would go to Adelaide despite taking on the Heat in home conditions. The Strikers have a decent record at the Gabba and could outgun their hosts.
As ever, there are plenty of other markets to look at when searching for the best bets.
Back Weatherald for Top Batsman
Adelaide batsman Jake Weatherald has enjoyed a good start to this year’s tournament. He made a quick-fire 27 in the last match before being dismissed just when he was looking to really kick on.
That followed the 68 he hit against Hobart and highlights the confidence he is playing with at present.
Backing him to be Adelaide’s top batsman looks at great bet at 4.32 with 22Bet.
Take on Rashid with Siddle
Rashid Khan heads the market to be Adelaide’s top bowler in this match.
However, that means taking him on offers value elsewhere. Picking Peter Siddle to shine at the Gabba is a value play that could pay.
Siddle wasn’t among the wickets in the last match but bagged a five-for before that. Conditions in Brisbane should suit him, especially if the visitors get to field first.
His price of 4.0 with bet365 is far too big.
Lynn to Take the Fight to Adelaide
Chris Lynn has looked the most in-form of the Brisbane batsmen so far this tournament.
His 69 against Thunder was a highlight and he will want to build on that here. The powerful batsman will enjoy being back at the Gabba and boundaries can flow.
Backing him to hit another half-century is an outside bet but one that can come in give Lynn’s strengths. That is priced at 3.4 with 22Bet.
