Big Bash League (BBL07) Round 2 Tips

December 23, 2017 by Posted in Cricket Tips

BBL07 Round 2What a start we had for Round 1 of the BBL07! The first two matches were thrillers taking us to the final over while the third match was equally competitive and kept us on the edge of our seats. The tournament now moves to the second round and we take a quick look at the action ahead of us.

Dec 23, 4:10 PM local: Sydney Sixers vs Perth Scorchers at SCG

The Sixers started on the wrong footing losing out to the Sydney Thunder in the season opener. It was a tight encounter, but the Sixers couldn’t make full use of the excellent debut performance by Daniel Sams (4/14). Now, in a repeat of the BBL06 final, they get to meet the Perth Scorchers. Can they regain their winning touch?

The defending Champions are currently jostling with a number of injuries to key personnel and players missing out because of international commitments. And then, Michael Klinger is also out due to family problems. Can they overcome the problems and start on the right footing?

TIP: Sixers to win – $1.73 at William Hill

Dec 23, 7:25 PM local: Melbourne Renegades vs Brisbane Heat at the Etihad Stadium

The Renegades rode on the performances by Dwayne Bravo and Cameron White to start with an easy win over the Hurricanes. The off-season recruitment has made the Renegades stronger and they look good to be a strong title challenger.

The Heat started positively too with a win over the Stars. In Lynn’s absence, they found Joe Burns and Alex Ross rising to the occasion. However, with Burns ruled out of this encounter, the Heat may struggle to put it past the Renegades.

TIP: Renegades to win – $1.67 at Ladbrokes

Dec 26, 4:10 PM local: Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Stars at the WACA

The Scorchers’ squad strength has always been the cornerstone of their success over the years. But this year there will be more questions asked about their strength as they grapple with international commitments and injuries.

The Stars nearly won their first match, but that is no solace in the BBL. With Kevin Pietersen set to miss the game due to his England ‘Christmas trip’, the pressure is on the others to lift the Stars.

TIP: Stars to win – $1.73 at Ladbrokes

Dec 27, 6:10 PM local: Brisbane Heat vs Sydney Thunder at the Gabba

There is a high chance that Chris Lynn gets back to fitness for this encounter, which means the Heat can pair up the ‘Bash Brothers’. Burns may also be available, and the mere availability of this troika makes the Heat favourites for this encounter.

The Thunder have started on a positive note, but that’s their customary win, isn’t it? Can they build up, on that and surprise the Heat?

TIP: Heat to win – $1.73 at Ladbrokes
