Brisbane Heat betting

After missing the Big Bash League finals last summer, the Brisbane Heat are fired up and ready for a fight. Chris Lynn leads a team that mixes local talent with plenty of big names from abroad, but do they have enough firepower to mix it with the favourites?

Brisbane Heat squad

Brisbane Heat futures betting

The Heat finished second from bottom last summer, but Australia’s leading online bookmakers are forecasting a much better show this time around. There is plenty of variance in the market, however, so you can find some real value on Brisbane if you do your homework and check out all of our trusted betting sites.

Most wickets betting
Brendan Doggett has won many admirers in his short career, including the national selectors. The 24-year-old from Rockhampton generates plenty of pace and has a few neat tricks that can lure even the most experienced batsman into a false shot.

Most runs betting
There are two very clear candidates for top runscorer at Brisbane. Chris Lynn might be the most explosive batsman on the planet, but BJ McCullum has fewer fitness concerns and is no danger whatsoever of leaving for international duty.

Brisbane Heat all-time XI

For a team that’s won a BBL title and competed in a second Grand Final, it’s quite hard to put together a best eleven for the Brisbane Heat.

That is a testament to the guys at the top of the tree – McCullum, Lynn, Christian and Vettori – who have carried their side at different stages throughout the journey.

There’s no doubt that McCullum and Lynn make up one of the best T20 opening partnerships the format has ever seen. Christian, Hopes and Cutting provide a flurry of middle and late order hitting and Samuel Badree – the number one T20 bowler in the world for a long period – is one of the most unheralded success stories for the franchise.

Mitchell Johnson, Cutting and Hopes will share responsibilities with the new ball.
