Outright winner betting for BBL07

Big Bash League 2017/18 winner CrownBet.com.au odds
Perth Scorchers $4.50
Melbourne Renegades $5
Melbourne Stars $6
Brisbane Heat $6
Sydney Sixers $7
Adelaide Strikers $8.50
Sydney Thunder $13
Hobart Hurricanes $15

Our tip: After playing off in the Grand Final last season, we think the Brisbane Heat can go one better this season at $6 with CrownBet.com.au. Much will rely on Chris Lynn and Brendon McCullum to deliver, but the Heat have made some savvy recruiting moves that will see them give good value for money.

Most losses betting for BBL07

Most losses in 2017/18 CrownBet.com.au odds
Hobart Hurricanes $2.75
Sydney Thunder $3.50
Adelaide Strikers $5.50
Sydney Sixers $11
Melbourne Stars $13
Brisbane Heat $13
Melbourne Renegades $19
Perth Scorchers $21

Our tip: After finishing on the bottom of the ladder last season, the Sydney Thunder have made no great gains to their squad and look destined for another disappointing season. We think they’ll out-stink the Hurricanes and make it a record fifth wooden spoon in their seven years.

Top run-scorer betting for BBL07

Top run-scorer for 2017/18 CrownBet.com.au odds
Chris Lynn $8.50
Brendon McCullum $9
Kevin Pieterson $10
Michael Klinger $12
Ben Dunk $13
George Bailey $15
Colin Ingram $15
Cameron White $17
Luke Wright $17

Our tip: With no danger of going anywhere on international duty, Brendon McCullum is the value in this market at $9. He will get every opportunity at the top of the order each game and enjoys Australian bowling.

Top wicket-taker betting for BBL07

Most wickets for 2017/18 CrownBet.com.au odds
Rashid Khan $9
Mitchell Johnson $12
Andrew Tye $13
Scott Boland $15
Jackson Bird $15
Fawad Ahmed $15
Cameron Boyce $17
Nathan Coulter Nile $17
James Faulkner $17

Our tip: After tearing the competition apart last year after returning from international retirement, we’re expecting Mitchell Johnson to go one better in 2017/18 and lead the competition. He still has the pace and firepower and will love the faster WACA wickets.
