      Perth Scorchers: $3.60 @ Sportsbet.com.au
      Hobart Hurricanes: $5.50 @ Sportsbet.com.au

Saturday, January 20 from 9.20pm AEDT at the WACA, Perth.

ANOTHER day, another BBL07 clash with massive implications for home finals.

Second comes up against third on Saturday night at the WACA when the Scorchers host the Hurricanes.

And what a beauty this should be.

After winning five games in a row, the Hurricanes’ streak ended on Wednesday night at the hands of the top-of-the-table Adelaide Strikers. It took the Strikers to the very last over to seal the deal against the Hurricanes, who almost chased down a daunting 4/187 at Adelaide Oval.

So, after getting so close to sealing top spot and a home final, things don’t get any easier for the men in purple, who have to face the +260 BBL07 title favourites, the Perth Scorchers, at the WACA.

The Scorchers are 6-2 from eight games and will be looking to secure a home final on their daunting home ground.

Who’s going to win this battle of the BBL heavyweights?

Everywhere you look, there are dead-set superstars of the format.

The Hurricanes have the in-form batsmen in the comp, D’Arcy Short, as well as bowling sensation Jofra Archer.

The Scorchers have built a dynasty on even contributions and will have a daunting batting lineup with the likes of Shaun Marsh, Cameron Bancroft, Cameron Voges and Ashton Turner all a massive handful for any bowling lineup.

Who wins?

Jofra Archer odds and best bets vs. Perth Scorchers

The fact that Barbados-born Jofra Archer has committed to playing his cricket for England will bring a tear to the eye of every West Indian cricket fan in the world.

This 22-year-old has all the tools to be a menace to batsmen all around the world for another decade.

Bowling off a short, casual run-up, Archer consistently reaches 140km/h deliveries and his prowess in the field, both in catching and run-outs, has been a constant in highlight reels.

Archer is the real deal. He is second on the tournament wicket tally board with 14 and shows no signs of slowing down.

Don’t forget that he’s handy with the bat too.

Let’s take a look at his odds for this game and se if there’s value there for punters:

Jofra Archer betting odds:

We’re pencilling Archer in as the leading wicket-taker at $3.50 on a quick WACA pitch and think the $15 for man of the match is great value for punters at Sportsbet.

Scorchers vs. Hurricanes most runs betting

Perth Scorchers:

We’re on the old-timer Shaun Marsh to come into his own on his home deck and put on a show with the bat here. Marsh is the shortest in betting at $3.60 with Sportsbet.com.au, but he’s in supreme form and makes for a great multi filler here.

Hobart Hurricanes:

Do we even need to say it?

D’Arcy Short. D’Arcy Short on a good week. D’Arcy Short on a bad week. D’Arcy Short every day.

Short, who is the leading run-scorer in the comp – by some distance – is paying +180 at Sportsbet. Throw your money on and enjoy the show.
