Perth Scorchers Big Bash odds and tips
The Scorchers usually start the season among the favourites in the BBL outright odds. Heading into the 2020/21 Big Bash season, they share the third line of title betting with the Adelaide Strikers at $6. The Melbourne Stars ($4.33) and Sydney Sixers ($5.50) are the only teams with shorter odds at Sportsbet.com.au.
Scorchers top runscorer tips
New arrivals Colin Munro and Jason Roy bring some serious firepower to 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.
Scorchers top bowler betting
It’s hard to look past the usual suspects in Fawad Ahmed, Jhye Richardson and Andrew Tye. Perth’s bowling depth is unmatched in the BBL, as the likes of Jason Behrendorff, Matthew Kelly and Cameron Gannon are all very dangerous seamers at this level.

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, Coulter-Nile 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.
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.
