- Brisbane Heat: $1.72 with PlayUp
- Perth Scorchers: $2.20 with Bet365
We are starting off the next decade of sport will be the Brisbane Heat and the Perth Scorchers who will battle at Metricon Stadium on the Gold Coast. It has been a long time since the Brisbane Heat played a BBL match, as their last game was the incredible Chris Lynn innings where he made 94 runs in 35 balls. Both teams have shown Australia that they are worthy of making it to the finals, but we are still unsure if they can consistently play at their best each night.
The Perth Scorchers have both looked untouchable and shocking at times, as their batsmen have seesawed through the first few matches. Whichever team can perform better with the bat will more than likely be the winning side, as these teams are stronger at the crease than with ball-in-hand. There are plenty of stars across both franchises to look out for, so here are the best tips we have on offer for this upcoming clash.
Heat versus Scorchers top batsman tips
- Chris Lynn @ $3.40 with Sportsbet
If you saw the way Chris Lynn took control the other day, you know that the big hitter is back in good form, after what could be considered a poor start to his BBL9 campaign. If the Brisbane Heat bat first, you can back in Chris Lynn to be the difference, but there are no worries if they bat second either, as his confidence from the last match should see him through at least six big overs, which is enough for Lynn to make a substantial total.
- Cameron Bancroft @ $4.50 with Sportsbet
Although Cameron Bancroft is up and down with his performances, this looks like the type of match where he can establish a strong innings. No bowler in the Brisbane Heat line up is untouchable, as they have a balanced approach. Bancroft’s controlled demeanour will allow him to stay at the crease long enough to be the best batsman for Perth. Bancroft likes to slowly put runs on the board, and this is the type of match where he can do exactly that.
Heat vs Scorchers top bowling betting
- Ben Laughlin 2+ wickets @ $2.05 with BetEasy
If you are looking for consistency in an athlete, it is hard to go past Ben Laughlin’s T20 career. His first season in new colours has gotten off to a slow start, but Laughlin has still taken a wicket in every game and remains a dangerous option. The Brisbane Heat have no top-tier bowlers, which is why a consistent option such as Laughlin is the best choice.
- Chris Jordan 2+ wickets @ $2 with BetEasy
With seven wickets from his four innings, Chris Jordan is one of the premier bowlers in the BBL this season. Not only does the big quick take amazing catches in the field, but he is the most dangerous bowler for the Scorchers, who have a long list of capable players. Jordan will target the likes of Tom Banton and Max Bryant, who will look to take on the international import.
