Brisbane Heat V Adelaide Strikers


The Main Points

Adelaide Strikers

  • Adelaide Strikers are the reigning champions and have retained most of their team from last year.
  • Rashid Khan for Adelaide is a freak at this format of the game and troubles any batsman.
  • With Khan, Stanlake, Siddle and Laughlin the Strikers have a much better bowling attack.
  • Travis Head will be out of the side due to International Duties.

Brisbane Heat

  • The match is played at the Gabba
  • Chris Lynn and Brendon McCullum are the bash brothers and can win a game off their own bat
  • The Batting lineup for the Heat is slightly better
  • The Bowling attack of the Strikers is much better than Brisbanes and if they can dismiss McCullum and Lynn early this game should fall the way of the Strikers.
Tip: Adelaide Strikers to win $2.00 @ Ladbrokes

Melbourne Renegades V Perth Scorchers


The Main Points

Melbourne Renegades

  • The game will be played at Etihad Stadium in Melbourne.
  • Cameron Boyce, Dan Christian and Usman Khan Shinwari come into the side.
  • They have lost Dwayne Bravo, Hogg and Hodge from their lineup this year.
  • Aaron Finch is on Test Duty.
  • Batting lineup is thin.

Perth Scorchers

  • Ashton Agar is great in this format of the game.
  • Their bowling attack of Agar, Tye, Willey and Coulter Nile is one of the best in the competition and should leave them with low totals to chase all season.
  • With thin batting lineups on both teams the bowling attacks will be crucial and fall in favour of the Scorchers
  • Batting lineup is thin.
Tip: Perth Scorchers to win $1.73 @ Ladbrokes

Sydney Thunder V Melbourne Stars


Sydney Thunder

  • Joe Root and Daniel Sams come into the Thunder lineup.
  • The game will be played in Sydney
  • Bowling is crucial in T20 and the bowling lineup of Thunder leaves a bit to be desired.
  • Usman Khawaja is on Test Duty

Melbourne Stars

  • Dwayne Bravo comes in for the Stars this year, much better international than Kevin Pieterson last year.
  • The Stars have a well rounded team this year and are equally potent batting or bowling.
  • The Stars had a terrible year last year although their team has changed dramatically this season.
Tip: Melbourne Stars to win $2.00 @ Ladbrokes

Sydney Sixers V Perth Scorchers


Sydney Sixers

  • This game is played in Sydney
  • They will have to rely on too few players to get the job done.
  • They have a very young team.
  • John Hastins is out for the season with bleeding on the lungs

Perth Scorchers

  • Better Bowling attack than the young Sixers.
  • Better all round team and should get the job done.
  • Playing away from home
Tip: Perth Scorchers to win $1.91 @ Ladbrokes


Where to bet on the BBL

Topbetta is unique as they offer both a standard betting platform and a tournament platform bundled into one. Each day and night they run tournaments where you can buy in for ‘x’ amount of dollars (ranging from $2-$100). From there you are given an amount of ‘BettaBucks’ that you can bet on any race throughout the designated time, the player with the most BettaBucks at the end of the last race will scoop a % of the pool. This is definitely a drawcard and adds an extra fun element to punting.
