Scorchers to win: why is this a good bet?

Melbourne Stars are heavy favourites because they’re two from two and the Scorchers lost their first game.

But the Stars beat in the Brisbane Heat arguably the worst side in the tournament and the Sydney Thunder are hardly the hot favourites to win this BBL, either.

Perth Scorchers did admittedly have a bad day at the office against the Renegades but they look too good a side to be struggling and could make up for it here.

The Head-to-Head record reads 8-8 and the Scorchers have actually won four of the last six. This could be very close between two teams who look well-matched so it makes sense to go with the outsiders.

Why our hot bet is so hot

10CRIC have made Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone favourites in this market. Except…neither of them will be playing because they’re still in quarantine after arriving from South Africa. What that means is that if those two are short odds, others are as a consequence, available at bigger odds than they should be.

Josh Inglis celebrates. He's out hot bet to be the top batsman for the Scorchers in our Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Stars Betting Tips & Predictions for December 16th 2020

Starting with Josh Inglis. The hard-hitting opener only got 9 off 16 the other day but he was excellent last season and the 4.5 he’s available at with 10CRIC is far too big for an opening batsman who can score so quickly.

Adam Zampa Stars Top Bowler: why is this a good bet?

  • Is Australia’s first-choice white ball spinner.
  • Lots of Big Bash experience.
  • Scorchers batsmen not great players of spin.
  • Took 2-10 in his previous game.
  • Always looks to take wickets.

Live Betting Tip

The Scorchers are pretty weak in their lower-middle order. They have Jhye Richardson batting at eight which is far too high. So if they bat first and are six or more down, it might be worth going a bit low on the innings runs market because no-one between 8-11 can be trusted to score fast runs.

Big Bash big stats

  • There’s only ever been one century in this fixture and the man who hit it- Peter Handscomb- left the Stars for the Hurricanes at the start of this season.
  • Andrew Tye is miles ahead of any other bowler in this fixture with 19 wickets; the next best is 10 from Daniel Worrall- who is now at the Adelaide Strikers.
  • The Stars’ all-rounder Nathan Coulter-Nile was a big player for the Scorchers when they won titles in the past.
  • Dilbar Hussain bowled just two overs in the Stars’ last game despite being a frontline bowler. He took 1-11.
