The latest Big Bash betting has made the Sixers the favourites to get one over the Strikers.

They’ll play each other at the Carrara Oval on Sunday, January 3 and it should be a good game between two sides who will believe they can still secure a Top 2 finish.

Both are fresh from losing though and may be a little low on confidence. Up next are the best Adelaide Strikers v Sydney Sixers best tips.

Sixers to win: why is this a good bet?

It’s a tough call but the Sixers just about get the nod.

They’ll have been bitterly disappointed by their defeat to the lowly-placed Brisbane Heat yesterday where it was a bit of a batting collapse and some mistakes in the field that cost them.

But everyone’s allowed one bad day at the office and they’d won four in a row before that. There’s a bit of a danger that they miss Jason Holder a bit too much but Jake Ball should be match fit and ready to play in this one.

The Strikers are fine with the ball but with the bat, they miss a couple of class acts in that middle-order. The Sixers are the better all-round side, are 8-5 up on the head to head over the years, and won this game when they played earlier this campaign.

So that’s why they get the vote.

Why our hot bet is so hot

In that match against the Heat, Christian was once more the Sixers’ top bowler in the game.

He took the same two wickets as Ben Dwarshius but went for fewer runs. Christian conceded just 35 while Dwashius went for 45. As per 10CRIC’s rules, Christian was the winner on account of going for fewer runs.

It means that he now has 8 wickets for the tournament, just two less than the Sixers’ top wicket-taker Dwarshuis and the same as Steve O’Keefe.

So why do we want to go with veteran Christian (rather than the other two)? Simple. Dwarshuis is 3.0, O’Keefe is 4.0 and Christian is 5.5. So he’s the value call.

Wes Agar Strikers Top Bowler: why is this a good bet?

  • Top wicket-taker for the Strikers with 11.
  • Has taken two wickets in a game on five matches out of six. Two wickets is very often enough to be the top bowler in a game.
  • Always bowls his four overs. 
  • Career strike rate in the T20s of 15.8 is world-class. 
  • Slightly better odds at 3.5 than Rashis Khan at 3.2 

Live Betting Tip

With no Jason Holder around now and his replacement being an out and out bowler, the Sixers aren’t quite as strong with the bat now. He was batting at seven for them and often hit sixes in the death overs.

It means that if they bat first and lose a few wickets they might not post that many. If they’re four wickets down before the 15th over, it could pay to go with them getting less than 160 runs.

Big Bash big stats

  • Sixers 8-5 up head to head. 
  • Travis Head (unavailable for this game) is the only batsman to have scored a century in this fixture.
  • Steve O’Keefe and Ben Dwarshius have each taken 13 wickets in this fixture.
  •  The Sixers’ Josh Philippe is the third-highest runscorer this Big Bash with 220 runs, just 29 behind leader Glenn Maxwell. 
  • Wes Agar of the Strikers has taken more wickets than anyone else this Big Bash but is yet to bowl a maiden over.
