Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder – BBL Match Preview – Betting Tips, Latest Odds, Team News and Predictions – 24/1/2020

The Hurricanes and Thunder head into this clash looking to keep their hopes of a top-four finish alive and kicking.

Home side Hobart will be looking to gain more momentum after returning to winning ways thanks to a four-run victory at Melbourne Renegades earlier in the week.

Sydney, meanwhile, could make vital strides toward the top four with a big away success.

However, to do that they will have to bounce back following an eight-wicket loss at Perth Scorchers.

Their bowling attack struggled to deal with Josh Inglis and Liam Livingston that day and they’ll need show more away from home once again.

Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder – Betting Tips and Prediction

Sydney Thunder have struggled to find any real consistency but are a dangerous side when everything does click for them.

This is a match-up between the league’s two lowest-scoring sides this season, so it could all be decided by one big innings.

Alex Hales looks to be hitting form again and it is hard to look past Sydney picking up successive wins over Hobart.

They won the reverse fixture by four wickets earlier this month with their top order doing the damage.

Hales to hit top gear against the Hurricanes

Alex Hales is slowly creeping his way up the top batsman rankings and can be the man to win it for Sydney.

He recovered from a disappointing duck against Sydney Sixers to smash a sublime 85 last time out. That was his highest knock of the season and bodes well for the visitors.

If he can hit top form then the Thunder’s fortunes can change with him.

He heads the market to be Sydney’s top batsman at 3.75 (11/4) with 10Cric.

Morris to strike for Thunder

Chris Morris is looking dangerous with the ball in hand at present and looks a good bet to be Sydney’s top wicket-taker.

He took 2-12 in the win over rivals Sixers before finally bagging the wicket of Livingstone in the defeat to Scorchers.

He can build on that now and is a 4.00 (3/1) shot with 10Cric to be his team’s top bowler.

Best Bet: Alex Hales to be top scorer for the Sydney Thunder 3.75 (11/4) with 10Cric
