Perth Scorchers Big Bash odds and tips

The Scorchers usually start the season among the favourites in the BBL outright odds. Heading into the 2021/22 Big Bash season, they sit on the second line of betting at $5, with only the Sydney Sixers ($4) above them.

There is plenty of firepower throughout Perth’s batting lineup, but local lads Mitchell Marsh and Josh Inglis are the real eye-catchers in the market. Cameron Green might also be worth a punt if he isn’t selected for the opening Test against India.

With Jhye Richardson in Australia’s Test squad for the Ashes series, Jason Behrendorff and Andrew Tye are the standouts with the ball. Another to keep in mind is English seamer Tymal Mills, who was ordinary during his last stint in the BBL but has a big reputation abroad.

How do you whittle down such a successful franchise to only 11 players? Fortunately, many of these guys pick themselves – the Marsh brothers, Maxy Klinger and skipper Voges have contributed big runs year after year, while the seam trio of Behrendorff, Richardson and Tye is as good as any that has ever graced the Big Bash.

There are also some obvious selections from the archives. George Bradley Hogg was the most prolific spinner in the BBL during his five seasons with the Scorchers, while South African star Herschelle Gibbs was a massive hit, smashing six half-tons in 16 innings.

Nathan Coulter-Nile, Mitch Johnson and David Willey might consider themselves unlucky to miss out, as might Ian Bell, Michael Carberry and Craig Simmons, but that’s what happens when you are up against the best of the best.
