It’s the second-last game of the season for both sides with very little on the line. On one hand, the Strikers could still make a push for the finals if results go their way, while Brisbane’s season looks just about over following a handful of recent losses.
Brisbane lost to Adelaide three weeks ago in their season open, falling by as many as five-wickets in front of their home fans. This time around they’ll travel to Adelaide Oval, a venue they haven’t won in since 2016.
The Strikers need the Thunder to lose out from here if they wish to make a push for the Top 4 but having won just two of their last five matches, it looks easier said than done.
The tip here would be to stick with the player market given just how inconsistent these two sides are. The Strikers had no trouble against the ‘Bash Brothers’ in December, while Alex Carey finished with a handy 70-runs.
Tip: Adelaide Strikers at $1.71
Value BET: MOM: Alex Carey at $10.00
