These two sides are sitting towards the bottom of the table in sixth and seventh. A win and the team who gets it is back in business but a defeat means the team on the receiving end will almost certainly be saying goodbye to a Playoff place.

Heat to win: why is this a good bet?

It really shouldn’t be the case that one team is so reliant on one man but in the case of the Strikers and Rashid Khan, it’s true.

With him they had a good bowling line-up and Khan as the main man, the X-Factor, the game-changer. Without him they look pretty ordinary.  Having been in a good position before he departed for international duty, they got a real hiding at the hands of the Stars in their first game without him, losing by 111 runs. The problem is that they’re not sure what to do when he’s not there.

You could say the same about Chris Lynn (more on him in a bit) and the Heat but the difference is Lynn is available to the Brisbane side and Khan isn’t.

There’s not much to choose between two teams who have done ok but certainly don’t have the weapons to go all the way and win the Big Bash this year.

The explosiveness of Lynn with the bat could make all the difference here and even if he doesn’t play a big knock, others have been chipping in with useful 30s and 40s. It’s close but we just about favour the Heat.

Morne Morkel Heat Top Bowler: why is this a good bet?

  • Has impressed in his two games so far with 3 wickets already.
  • Economy rate of 6.62 has been brilliant.
  • Fresh after missing most of the BBL through injury.
  • His height (1.96m) can cause batsmen problems at the MCG where he can get extra bounce.
  • Mark Steketee is the only Heat bowler who has been consistent throughout.
  • Good price of 3.75 for a player who has played for South Africa close to 250 times.

Why our hot bet is so hot

If you’ve been reading our Big Bash tips for the last couple of months you will have realised what a wonderful Bash player Chris Lynn is.

In 7 games this season, he’s scored 52 runs more than anyone else in his team despite the fact they played 11 games. His strike rate of 147 is the highest of any batter in the side and while four players at the Heat have one fifty in 11 games, Lynn has three in seven knocks.

And now for the real kicker: despite not playing a huge inning just yet, Lynn has somehow managed to top score for the Heat in 5 of the 7 games he’s played. That’s a win rate of 71%.

Simple maths tells us that odds of 3.0 means he wins 33% of the time yet those are the odds on offer about him top-scoring here. Or to put it another way: his true odds based on a 71% win rate should be about 1.44 yet you can get 3.0 with 10CRIC. It’s a real case of lettering the maths do the talking.

The Heat have shown really some fight when batting second. Even when Lynn has got out, other players have played some decent cameos to get over the line one way or another.

As long as they’re not chasing more than 170, look to back the Hat at 2.2 or bigger during the chase because they’ve shown they can get there.

With no Khan for the Strikers, even more so.
