BBL11 Final: Scorchers vs Sixers Betting Tips

January 27th 2022, 4:31pm, By: Mr.Cricket

BBL11 Final Betting Tips

It’s finally here! After a long and at times, drawn out BBl11 season, the Final will be played on Friday night between the Perth Scorchers and Sydney Sixers from Marvel Stadium! Mr. Cricket has been outstanding this season, maintaining a 28-7 record on match predictions, and he’ll be looking to round out the season with another win as he provides his betting tips for the final below. 

BBL11 Scorchers vs Sixers Betting Tips

Marvel Stadium, Friday 28th January, 7.40pm (AEDT)

Perth Scorchers

Predicted XI: Josh Inglis, Kurtis Patterson, Mitch Marsh, Colin Munro, Ashton Turner, Laurie Evans, Ashton Agar, Jhye Richardson, Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, Peter Hatzoglou

The Scorchers have been the form side of the competition all season and they will look to round out the year by winning their fourth Big Bash League crown. Unlike their opponents, the Scorchers will come into this game at complete full strength, with the likes of Mitch Marsh, Jhye Richardson and Josh Inglis all back from international duty while Colin Munro has recovered from COVID. The teams on paper really couldn’t be trending any further in the Scorchers favour, which is why they are firm $1.38 favourites to win. 

They were too good for the Sixers in the qualifying final last week, capturing a 49 run win after plundering 189 runs batting first. Josh Inglis and Kurtis Patterson combined for a 120 run opening partnership in the win, while their dynamic middle order in Munro, Turner and Evans were barely required. 

Sydney Sixers

Predicted XI: Hayden Kerr, Justin Avendano, Dan Hughes, Moises Henriques, Jake  Carder, Dan Christian, Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshuis, Jay Lenton, Nathan Lyon, Steve O’Keefe

The Sixers captured one of the all-time inspiring BBL wins in the Challenger Final against the Strikers on Wednesday night. Severly undermanned, they managed to chase down 167 to win the match on the back of normal No.8 batsman Hayden Kerr smashing a brilliant 98 off just 58 balls. 

Unfortunately for the Sixers, the win raised even more issues at the selection table, as batsmen Moises Henriques and Jordan Silk both suffered injuries. I think Henriques will play on Friday night, but Silk looks no chance after what looked to be a pretty severe hamstring injury. The most likely inclusion for Silk, if healthy, would be Dan Hughes, who missed the Challenger through injury. What their final XI will look like, only time will tell, but one thing that’s for sure is that the Sixers are playing with a burning desire at the moment. 

Match Prediction

I’d really like to make a case for the Sixers here, and if they were at full strength I have no doubt I’d be making a strong one, but without Philippe, without Silk and potentially without Hughes, it’s hard to see them beating this star-studded Scorchers team. 

The Sixers put absolutely everything they had into their win over the Strikers on Wednesday night and I just feel like they might have already played their Grand Final. They are undermanned, underdone and will no doubt be emotionally exhausted after that win, and now have to face the best team in the league. The one thing in their favour is they will have nothing to lose here. Perth are expected to win this one, so at least the Sixers can go out and play freely without too much pressure. 

That’s not enough for me to lean towards the Sixers though. I think Perth win their fourth Big Bash League title on Friday night and although there’s not a lot of meat left on the bone there, you can multi them to win and make 160+ if they bat first for some extra value.

Scorchers H2H +160 Runs


Same Game Multi

Mitch Marsh played just six games through the regular season but that was enough to win him the BBL11 player of the tournament. He has batted on another level, amassing 342 runs at an average of 68.40. He has passed 20 runs in six of his seven games and is good value to do so again on Friday night. 

Hayden Kerr was brilliant on Wednesday night after a shaky start and I have no doubt the youngster took some real confidence out of that performance. Is still great value to pass the 10 run mark in the final.

The final leg of our multi will be for the first wicket of the match to be a catch. This has been our favourite bet throughout the season so far, saluting in over 80% of games and every final so far. 

Marsh 20+ Runs
Kerr 10+ Runs
