The first-place Hurricanes were handed their second loss of the season last Wednesday night against the Sixers, but they’ll rightfully start as the heavy favourite ahead of tonight’s clash against the Heat.
We take a look at Thursday nights (31/1/2019) BBL Big Bash 2019 match which is between Hobart Hurricanes and Adelaide Strikers. The Heat go into the match as favourites to win at home despite sitting on the bottom of the ladder.

Brisbane now find themselves on a serious three-game losing streak following Sunday night’s loss to the Stars, in large part thanks to the struggles of Brendan McCullum and Chris Lynn with the bat.
As the underdog Brisbane are 1-3 against Hobart away from home, having last defeated the Hurricanes way back in 2016. Hobart, meanwhile, lead the league in strike rate, which makes them a nice bet to smack a few over the fence this evening.
