The Heat appear to be back, and their season could enjoy another enormous boost with superstar A.B. De Villiers on track to make his debut in Brisbane tonight. His record over a long period of time obviously speaks for itself and even if he needs a game or two to find his best, his presence simply cannot be understated.
The Hurricanes meanwhile snapped a two-game losing streak with a smart win over the Scorchers in Perth and will be confident of building off the result in Brisbane. D’Arcy Short fired; bringing up the first ton of the BBL season and a repeat of that effort would see his side extremely difficult to beat.
I think the Heat look well placed to deliver their suffering home fans something to cheer about.
Tip: Brisbane Heat $1.47
Value BET: Man of the Match: D’Arcy Short at $6.00
