Sixers to win: why is this a good bet?

The Sixers’ last two games both ended in defeat and for a very good reason. Batting second both times, they conceded far too many in the first 10 overs or so. On both occasions they pulled things back well with the ball but had left themselves too much to do and didn’t manage to chase either of those scores. The first thing they should make sure they do then is bat first this time. Even if they do bowl first they need to improve on that side of things at the start or it could be a case of deja vu.

But the Sixers despite making that same mistake twice are a better side than the Stars and more of a team. They operate as a team whereas the Stars are and always have been, reliant on three or four….stars.

There’s also the possibility that by the time the game starts the Stars are already out because of other results, which would be highly demotivating. Enough reasons to side with the Sixers, another one being that they’re slightly ahead on head to head: 8-7.

Moises Henriques Sixers Top Batsman: why is this a good bet?

  • Top-scored in one of his two games this season and almost for a second time in the other.
  • Scores of 56 and 43 so far.
  • Huge BBL experience.
  • Lots of experience of batting against the Stars.
  • Has hit 260 runs against the Stars in the past.

Why our hot bet is so hot

Big game, big occasion, get in the big game player. Dan Christian has already more than justified his transfer to the Sixers with a series of brilliant all-round displays, which of course is what you want from a player like him.

13 wickets, 203 runs and remarkably, 12 catches. Only gun fielder Jordan Silk has more catches.

But more to the point, Christian already has two man of the match awards from 13 games and a tight, tense affair could just about being out the best in him.

He missed out last time, taking 1/23 with the ball and then getting a Golden Duck with the bat, getting out to an excellent delivery. That’s where the Sixers lost the game last time out and Christian is unlikely to let that happen to him again.

In fact, he’s far more likely to be a chief contributor in the match. Let’s hope it’s enough to get MOM.

Melbourne Stars v Sydney Sixers live betting tip

In a tense game, the batters may not be at their best here and getting decent totals at the MCG is one thing but getting big ones is quite another. 170 may be hard to get at this giant ground so it may pay to go with less than 170 runs first up in live Betting, whoever is batting first.

Big Bash big stats

  • Lots of competition to be Sixers’ top bowler. Dwarshius has 16, Brathwaite and O’Keefe 14 and Christian 13.
  • Dan Christian still has an outstanding strike rate of 181 after 12 innings this BBL.
  • Marcus Stoinis the only centurion in this fixture after hitting 147 not out.
  • But Glenn Maxwell has more runs than anyone else in this clash with 503.
  • Nick Larkin of the Stars is in good form with the bat with 43, 61 and 70 in his last three games.
  • Ben Dwarshius has 14 wickets in this fixture.
