Adelaide Strikers vs Perth Scorchers match prediction

Adelaide Strikers will take on Perth Scorchers in match number 10 of the Big Bash League 2019-20 season at the Adelaide Oval on Monday.

Adelaide Strikers’ first game was abandoned due to bad air quality conditions at the Manuka Oval in Canberra and therefore, they are yet to play a full game this season. Now they will be up against Perth Scorchers, who have lost one and won one so far. The Strikers do have a good chance to register their first victory against the Scorchers on Monday. In the meantime, you also have a great chance of getting your bets correct by putting your money on the markets that I am going to suggest now.

Cricket ball on field

Jordan has four wickets in two matches so far

Chris Jordan to be the top bowler for Perth Scorchers @ 3.50

Chris Jordan has had a decent year with the white ball, and he has managed to impress the Scorchers skipper Mitchell Marsh in both games so far. In two matches he has already picked up four wickets and is famished for more. In 2019, Jordan has featured in eight T20 internationals and has picked up 14 scalps in them. He averages 12.85 and has a strike rate of 10.2 and that is actually excellent in this format of the game. While he played only five matches for Trinbago Knight Riders in the Caribbean Premier League, Jordan managed to add seven scalps to his name. He could have added more to the tally of wickets if he had featured in as many as other bowlers in the league did.

Prior to the Big Bash League 2019-2020 season, the English seamer played in the Abu Dhabi T10 League and there too he was impressive with the ball as he managed to pick up six wickets in five matches. With Bet 365 offering odds of 3.50 for the England pacer, you might as well take the risk of putting your money on this market because the numbers are suggestive of the fact that Jordan is likely to be on top of his game against the Strikers on Monday.

Strikers and Scorchers have score few sixes

Total match sixes will be under 11.5 @ 1.80

This is an interesting market where I can literally assure you that will get a guaranteed return. When Strikes and Scorchers have met in the past, in 14 matches, the two sides have 132 sixes and that is not even 10 sixes per game. In the past five fixtures between Strikers and the Scorchers, the two teams have managed to send the ball out of the park 45 times and that is an average of 9 sixes per game, which is again less than the number that the market is looking for. Strikers and Scorchers have clashed five times at the Adelaide Oval in the past and they have hit 47 sixes. That is again an average of just a little more than nine sixes and is under the stated market number. Bet 365 is offering odds of 1.80 for total match sixes to be under 11.5 and all of the statistics that I have provided so far, is proving my point that I have tried to make about this market.

Scorchers have won four out of last five encounters

Perth Scorchers to win @ 1.90

It always turns out to be an enthralling encounter every time Adelaide Strikers and Perth Scorchers have clashed in the previous seasons of the Big Bash League. But in the last five fixtures between the two highly-equipped sides, Scorchers have come out on top in four occasions. Strikers will be wary of that piece of statistic and they will not want to lose in front of the home fans on Monday. But again, it is going to be an uphill task for the Strikers as they are yet to play a complete game in this ongoing season of the Big Bash League. The two teams have met 14 times in the past and Scorchers again have had more wins (8) than Strikers. They visitors are coming into this match on the back of a really good win against the defending champions and they will only look to build on the momentum.
