Judging by the odds, the 2017/18 Big Bash League is promising to be one of the closest ever.
Three-time champions Perth Scorchers lead the way in the outright betting, but Melbourne Stars, Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Renegades are all within $2 of the top line.
The other Melbourne team, the Renegades are on the next line of betting at $7 and will also go into the season in a positive frame of mind.
Be sure to accustom yourself with all of the BBL stats before placing your bets this season – more than any other sport, history has a habit of repeating itself in cricket.
2017/18 Big Bash League Outright winners odds
Winner (T20 Big Bash League 2017/2018)
4th of February 2018
Market to reach the top 4
Trying to pick the winner of a T20 comp can be akin to climbing Everest. We’ve seen it on the world stage with massive upsets at the World Cup – the West Indies a prime example of this.
But reaching the top four can be a much safer bet, with the cream in a team usually rising to the top over the course of a tournament.
What are the best bookies for BBL07
Offshore bookies with BBL betting
If you are based overseas you will also find many online bookmakers, including licensed Australian ones, willing to accept your punting dollar. If the bookie is based ‘offshore’ they are probably will not have as many markets on the BBL as one based in Aus, but you should find outright and head to head markets easily.
Some bookies like William Hill and Bet365 offer extensive betting on the BBL all over the world. This is because they have interests in other countries like the UK and Canada, where they both hold betting licenses. Another great UK-based bookie for BBL betting is Paddy Power, who are owned by the same people as Sportsbet in Australia.
