Big Bash League betting

big bash league t20

The KFC Big Bash exploded on the Australian sporting scene in 2011, and we haven’t looked back since. Now one of the world’s premier T20 cricket competitions, the BBL draws some of the biggest names in the game every summer.

It’s popularity is largely due in part to the fact T20 is so television friendly. Most games are broadcast live on free-to-air television in Australia by the Seven Network, while the Foxtel and Kayo subscription services have the rights to all 61 games of the BBL season. The tournament begins in December and runs through to January and features teams from every Australian state, excluding the ACT and Northern Territory.

The Big Bash also has enough allure to entice some of the biggest names in international cricket to spend a summer Down Under, largely through the generous salary cap system in place, although it pales in comparison to the riches on offer in the Indian Premier League.

Australian bookies for BBL betting

Obviously the bookmakers with the most betting options for Australian sports and in our case the BBL are based in this country. Bookies do billions of dollars worth of business each year in Australia and the BBL contributes a lot of money to the bottom line, with punters enjoying the shorter format of the game.

In preparation for the next BBL season, it pays to open a selection of bookmaker accounts, particularly if you live in Victoria, NSW or South Australia with legislation ruling you guys out of claiming welcome bonuses.

Keep in mind it is possible for UK punters to bet with Australian bookmakers, while Bet365 is another bookmaker with a great offering of BBL markets, including a futures market on the outright winner. There is generally worldwide interest in the BBL because of firstly the great cricket on offer and secondly that many international players visit Australia for the tournament.
