Big Bash League 2021/22 Cricket Betting Tips

With the completion of the opening few rounds, things are heating up in the 2021/22 season of the Big Bash League, the grandest T20 competition in Australia. Here we take a glimpse at some of the best fixtures in store for the coming week and offer our predictions along with a few betting tips.

Hobart Hurricanes v Melbourne Stars

Zodiac Bet Cricket Betting Odds

Hurricanes: 2.03
Stars: 1.65

Hobart Hurricanes find themselves in a bit of bother after losing 3 of their first 4 matches. The batting line-up is under some pressure after folding for less than 130 runs in the previous 2 games. The bowlers have also struggled to perform close to its potential with a lack of consistency, both in terms of selection as well as form.

As usual, the Stars have a talented squad with some massive names but are not able to perform on a consistent basis. Skipper Glenn Maxwell looks in good form after a hundred in the last match. But even with Andre Russell on board, the team still relies heavily on a handful of players and the bowling-unit looks a bit short at the moment.

Adelaide Strikers v Brisbane Heat

Zodiac Bet Cricket Betting Odds

Strikers: 1.53
Scorchers: 2.24

Courtesy of some Bash Boost points, the Strikers have managed to stay in the top-4 despite taking 3 defeats in the opening 4 matches. Without some key players the batting line-up is looking brittle and has not scored enough runs on consistent basis.

The bowlers have done a decent job even though they are not quite performing to its potential.
Brisbane Heat lies at the lower-end of the BBL table with a mere 4 points from its first 4 matches of the tournament. The batting-card is still largely depending upon a fast start from Chris Lynn although Sam Heazlett has been their best batter so far. The lack of overall quality in the bowling-unit has always been a concern.

Sydney Thunder v Sydney Sixers

Zodiac Bet Cricket Betting Odds

Thunder: 2.16
Sixers: 1.57

Sydney Thunder currently holds 3rd spot in the standings after collecting 9 points from 4 matches. The batting-card delivered a superb display in the last match after looking shaky in the earlier matches. The bowlers also complimented them with a solid performance that stands them in good stead for this derby clash.

Looking their part as the top contenders for the BBL title, Sydney Sixers have taken 14 points from their opening 5 games. On paper, they are the stronger side with both bat and ball than their city-rivals.

But the firm self-belief of the defending champions gives them an edge in the tight matches that go down the wire.

Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Renegades

Zodiac Bet Cricket Betting Odds
Scorchers: 1.44
Renegades: 2.49

In a rematch of their previous encounter, Melbourne Renegades will still have home advantage even though they are supposedly the away team in this contest. Perth Scorchers are forced to play all their fixtures on the road due to lockdown protocols in Western Australia but that has seemingly not affected them an iota.
