We take a look at Saturday nights (5/1/2019) BBL Big Bash match which is between the Perth Scorchers and Brisbane Heat. The Perth Scorchers look to have found a bit of form heading into the match and at home they always prove hard to beat and we think they will be.

Perth lost a heartbreaker on Thursday night against the Thunder, falling by a lone run despite an unbeaten 60 from Ashton Turner.
Brisbane’s start to the season has been just as agonising, failing to hit the win column in their three games. The Heat were beaten by five wickets against the Sixers on New Year’s Day, but their 2-3 record as the away underdog against the Scorchers makes them a tough side to back in this one.
Since Perth have played only one game at home so far this season, a seven-wicket win over the Strikers, they should have no problem claiming their first win over the Heat since 2017.
Tip: Perth Scorchers at $1.67
Value BET: MOM: Cameron Bancroft at $11.00
