Sydney Thunder v Brisbane Heat – Betting Tips and Prediction
Brisbane look to have found form at just the right time.
That said, they did make hard work of a low target against the Strikers in the previous round, which could leave a few doubts in the minds of their top order.
Sydney are very good on their day but need to add some consistency to their game if they are to push for the title.
This looks like another close contest and it could be worth looking at other markets to find some added value.
Stick with Hales for Top Batsman
Alex Hales has been brilliant to watch this tournament and can have another big impact in this contest.
The Englishman’s dynamic batting means he’s rightly at the head of the top Sydney batsman market.
He can be backed at 3.24 with 1xBet, which still looks a good price. His recent record at this ground reads 71, 54, 29 and proves he has no issues on this stage.
Sangha to Continue Rise
Tanveer Sangha has been a threat to batsmen right the way through this BBL. He has been Sydney’s main threat with the ball and can cause more problems to Brisbane.
Thunder have struggled a little in the bowling department but that does mean Sangha has less competition in the top Sydney bowler market.
He has five wickets from his last three matches in Canberra and his price of 3.75 with bet365 looks a value option.
Thunder to Have Highest Opening Partnership
The combination of Hales and Uzman Khawaja has given Sydney the chance to shine this Big Bash.
In contrast, the Heat have chopped and changed a few times and pushed Joe Denly to open in the last match. He did well but his opening partner Lynn didn’t stick around long enough for the duo to build.
Backing Sydney to get off to another solid start looks a good bet. They are priced at 1.8 with 22Bet to have the highest opening partnership.
