Hobart Hurricanes futures betting

Although the ‘Canes made it all the way to the big dance last year, there is little love for them in the outright betting for BBL08. Given this squad boasts some of the country’s form limited-overs players, there might be some serious value in backing Hobart to go deep again.

Tips for betting on the Hobart Hurricanes

For so long a rag-tag bunch of unassuming also-rans, the Hurricanes now have a talented roster that features some of the most explosive players in the competition. Keep an eye on these names.

Most wickets betting
Two words: Jofra Archer. The young Barbadian was electric in his first year with the Hurricanes, taking 16 wickets at 23.06 to finish tied for third in the wicket-taking charts. He is proper quick when he wants to be and brings a certain flair for the spectacular.

Most runs betting
It is somewhat strange that people aren’t more excited about the ‘Canes when D’Arcy Short and Ben McDermott were the two standout bats in the 2018 JLT One Day Cup. With Short a big contender for international honours this summer, McDermott might have the edge.

Hobart Hurricanes all-time XI

While he’s no longer with the Hurricanes, opening bat Ben Dunk was a revelation for the Hurricanes in the opening seasons of the competition – with explosive knocks at the top of the order catapulting him from unknown status to the Australian T20 side.

Tim Paine has been with the Hurricanes since day dot and has been a consistent opener and great leader.

The Hurricanes may not have seen the best years of Ricky Ponting, he makes this team purely on merit as one of Australia’s all-time greats.

George Bailey and Travis Birt will provide quality middle-order hitting and West Indian recruit Darren Sammy has been the best of many failed recruiting attempts.

Xavier Doherty would love operating in the middle overs after Stuart Broad and Shaun Tait have softened up the opposition with the new ball.
