Sydney Sixers v Perth Scorchers – Betting Tips and Prediction
This looks like being another close battle for the BBL title.
Preference goes to Perth Scorchers and backing them 1.91 with 1xBet looks the way to go.
Sydney have great batting strength but always look a little light in the bowling department. That could prove their downfall at the last hurdle, especially if their top-order fair to fire.
The Perth trio of Behrendorff, Tye and Richardson will have a big say, as will leg spinner Fawad Ahmed. He warmed up for the SCG with two wickets against the Heat.
The Scorchers’ resilient top order looked strong against Brisbane and having the powerful hitting of Colin Munro could be a huge positive should the contest get reduced by possible rain delays.
Perth to Have Highest Opening Partnership
Another factor to consider ahead of this is just how strong the Perth top order is looking at the moment.
Bancroft (58 not out) and Livingstone (77) set up their Challenger stage success over Brisbane in Canberra.
Philippe and Vince have both been brilliant for the Sixers but it seems to be feast or famine for Philippe in particular. Given that inconsistency, siding with the Scorchers seems sensible.
They can be backed at 1.91 with bet365 to have the best opening partnership.
Back Dwarshuis for Top Sydney Bowler
Ben Dwarshuis has been the stand-out bowler for the Sixers and will have to be at his best here.
He has 21 wickets in just 12 matches and looks a value bet to be Sydney’s top bowler in the final.
Given the fact he is five wickets ahead of any teammate in the wicket-taker table tells you how much they have relied on his threat with the ball.
He can be backed at 3.6 with bet365 to bag the most wickets for his side.
