Big Bash League (BBL07) Round 9 Tips

January 20, 2018 by Posted in Cricket Tips


This is the business end of things and we have teams jostling up for the finals’ spots. Most teams have two games in hand and know exactly what to do and what to expect from the other matches to propel them to the top-four. That makes the Round 9 a pivotal one in this year’s Big Bash League.

There’s plenty of other cricket on at the moment with the Australian ODI’s about to kick off along with a heap of international cricket! Make sure you check out our cricket page for all your tips!

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder (Jan 20, 6:10 PM local)

The Stars are out of contention for the finals’ places, but are ready to hurt the sides that are in the race. With Glenn Maxwell eyeing some traction in the Australian ODI selection, this could be a chance for him to stake claim!
The Thunder have an outside chance of qualifying with only six points in their kitty and just two games to play. They will have to win both their games and expect massive help from the other fixtures. Not a position you want to be in!

TIP: Thunder to win – 1.85 Sportsbet

Perth Scorchers vs Hobart Hurricanes (Jan 20, 6:20 PM local)

The Scorchers will be assured of qualification if they win one of their remaining matches. Knowing the way they go about their business, do not be surprised if they chose to put it across at the first time of asking.
The Hurricanes have stormed into contention with five wins on the trot, although the Strikers stopped them in their tracks. They are looking for two wins of their last two matches, but do they have enough firepower to stop the Scorchers at their fortress W.A.C.A?

TIP: Scorchers to win – 1.73 at William Hill

Melbourne Renegades vs Adelaide Strikers (Jan 22, 7:40 PM local)

The Renegades have three matches left, but with only eight points in their kitty, they need to keep winning. A win here will ease things for them, but can they stop the galloping Strikers in their stride?

The Strikers are sitting comfortably at the top of the table at the start of this round. They need to win one of their remaining two matches. As they wind down their group engagements with a match against the Scorchers, expect the Strikers to go for a win here.

TIP: Renegades to win – $2 at Ladbrokes

Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Stars (Jan 23, 7:40 PM local)

The Sixers have suddenly picked up form, although it is too late in the tournament, with the arrival of Nathan Lyon and Carlos Brathwaite. There is a spring in their step and they will look to compound the misery of the Stars, in their last match of BBL07.

The Stars are out of reckoning too, but are looking to avoid the wooden spoon. Can they do that against the up-and-rising Sixers? There is a sense of defeatist attitude with this Stars side and that may well prove to be their downfall.

TIP: Sixers to win – Price not yet available
