After two games the Thunder remain undefeated and most importantly, atop the Big Bash ladder.
A 15-run victory over the Stars on Monday was capped off by a huge three wicket haul from all-rounder Daniel Sams, which has given the Thunder the edge in the market against the Hurricanes on Friday.
Hobart aren’t to be taken lightly though – the Hurricanes are also undefeated to start the season, having won by 15-runs of their own against the Heat last week.
These two sides are tough to tell apart, but it’s the Hurricanes who have won the last two encounters. They’ll be relying heavily on the bowling attack led by James Faulkner, and after a three wicket bag against Brisbane, you have to like Hobart’s upset chances at home.
Tip: Hobart Hurricanes at $1.95
Value BET: MOM: Matthew Wade at $10.00
