The 54th match of the 2020-21 Big Bash League season will take place between Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Renegades at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney on Tuesday, January 26.
Brisbane Heat will be up against the Perth Scorchers, who sit pretty at the top of the points table, while Heat are in sixth position. Perth Scorchers moved up to the first spot after winning their last game against Melbourne Stars. Back in the 44th match, when the two teams had their first encounter, Perth Scorchers defeated the Heat by 59 runs held in Melbourne. Both the teams have played 13 matches each, where the Heat have managed a win over 8 and losing the rest 4, while the Scorchers won 6 matches and lost the rest 7.With that, I have assorted three best bets from the forthcoming match, to get your money flowing in the game.
With Perth Scorchers perched at the top of the points table, my first bet runs in favour of the Scorchers. The Scorchers have made their way up to the points table after winning three consecutive matches, which shows that they are in a brilliant form in the ongoing season. While the Heat in spite of winning their last game against the Renegades are lying in the bottom half of the points table. The Heat and Scorchers have had 14 head-to-head encounters in the past where Scorchers have defeated the Heat in 8 matches. Also looking at the last five matches the two teams have played, Scorchers have made the win in three out of the five.In the last season of BBL 2019-20 the Scorchers had an upper hand in both the matches by 40 runs and 34 runs respectively. With Heat already losing 7 matches to their opponents there is very less hope of them to climb up the ladder again. Having said that, Bet365.com has offered odds of 1.70 for PerthScorchers to win the match.
As mentioned earlier regarding Perth Scorchers performance in the ongoing season, alongside the Scorchers have hit gone big in hitting maximum number of boundaries as well. The total number of fours hit by Perth Scorchers in the 13 matches they played this season are 153 fours at an average of 11.76. While the total number of fours hit by the Brisbane Heat in the 13 matches they played this season have been 147 fours, averaging at 11.30. This shows the disparity between the two teams. In the previous head to head match between these teams played in this season, the number of fours was 11 fours by Scorchers and only 5 fours by Brisbane Heat. The Scorchers have hit fours six times more than their opponents this season, while the Heat have four times played an equal number of matches. Sportsbet.com is offering odds of 1.80 for Perth Scorchers to hit more fours in the game and I think this bet is a winner.
Jason Roy is the second highest run-scorer for his team, Perth Scorchers having played 610 innings this season with a strong average of 34.55 and staggering 311 runs. Jason Roy has been a name in the domestic T20 circuit, having played 190 matches and scored 4985 runs from it at an average of 28.82.Roy was explosive with the bat, smashing an unbeaten 74 and being declared as the Man of The Match which was laced with seven fours and three sixes played against Hobart Hurricanes earlier this season. He began on an aggressive note this season playing against the Adelaide Strikers giving Scorchers their first victory of the season. The Englishman has played 10 matches for the Perth Scorchers and averages 34.56 from it. He has only featured in two matches against Heat so far. Roy has a career summary of 23 BBL matches with 483 runs to his name. Keeping Jason Roy's current form in mind, I think this is one of the bets to put your money on. Sportsbet.io has offered odds of 1.85 for Jason Roy to score over 23.5 runs.
