BBL10 Scorchers vs Sixers Betting Tips

After a slow start to the season, the Scorchers have picked up back to back wins in convincing fashion and now are right back in the mix for a finals spot. They face the top of the table Sixers, who picked up a bounce back win over the Strikers on Sunday. The addition of Jason Roy has sparked a ressurgant Scorchers side who have won by 7 wickets and 96 runs in their last two games. Can the Scorchers pick up a third consecutive win? Or will the Sixers keep their spot at the top of the table? See our full preview and betting tips for Wednesday night’s clash below.

BBL10 Scorchers vs Sixers Betting Tips

Perth Scorchers Squad: Fawad Ahmed, Cameron Bancroft, Jason Behrendorff, Aaron Hardie, Josh Inglis, Matt Kelly, Liam Livingstone, Mitch Marsh, Colin Munro, Joel Paris, Kurtis Patterson, Jhye Richardson, Corey Rocchiccioli, Jason Roy, Ashton Turner, Andrew Tye, Sam Whiteman

Match Prediction

This game has become incredibly interesting after the Scorchers two game win streak across the last week and now finally being back at home, they’re in a great position to knock off the Sixers. Their powerful batting unit has finally got going in their last two games, finally giving some support to their bowlers who have been quite solid this season. The Scorchers have their next three games at home, which will be crucial to their tilt at the top five.

Whilst plenty of credit will go to Jason Roy for the Scorchers resurgence and rightfully so, Jhye Richardson has put together an incredible season with the ball. Richardson has taken 10 wickets at an average of 13.90, with an economy rate of just 7 (The best of any fast bowler in the top ten leading wicket takers). Richardson will provide plenty of headaches to the Sixers top order, which has looked a little out of touch in their last two games.

These two sides have been the most successful in Big Bash history, but the Scorchers comfortably lead the head to head battle 10-6. Having already played at Optus Stadium will be a big advantage for the Scorchers, given how different of a pitch it is in comparison to the likes of Hobart, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. The Scorchers will be desperate in this home stretch, especially given the Stars and Strikers have left the door ajar for the fifth spot. It’ll be an uphill battle for Sixers who will be playing their third game in five days. Expect a fired up and inform Scorchers outfit to get a crucial victory in front of their home crowd.

Perth Scorchers Prop Bet

English star Jason Roy has been an excellent addition for the Scorchers, getting them off to flying starts with scores of 21, 47 and 27 at the top of the order. Roy had an excellent Vitality Blast campaign for Surrey, scoring 206 runs at an average of 41.20 in just five games. Roy also scored 233 runs at an average of 33, from eight matches in the Pakistan Super League. It’s not hard to see how Roy has produced good performances from the word go in BBL10.

Unlike most English batsmen, Roy has shown throughout his career that he enjoys batting on the bouncy Australian pitches. With depth that the Scorchers have in their batting stocks, Roy has a license to go from ball one, and thrives in that role. Having spent two seasons at the Sixers, Roy will be eager to send a statement to his former side.  

Sydney Sixers Prop Bet

Whilst the Sixers top four of Philippe, Edwards, Vince and Hughes tend to get the limelight, Jordan Silk has been in super form. 31, 43 and 38 from his last three innings has Silk with 194 runs at an average of 38 and a strike rate of 151, outstanding numbers batting at number five.

On a pitch they haven’t played at this season, Philippe and Vince will provide chances for the Scorchers to make early inroads with their aggressive nature. Silk will get an opportunity and as he has shown, he doesn’t need many balls to make a big impact. With the form Silk is in across his last three games, he is a quality choice as the Sixers top run scorer.
