Perth Scorchers vs Brisbane Heat Preview
The Perth Scorchers and the Brisbane Heat will go toe-to-toe at Canberra’s Manuka Oval on Thursday night for the right to face the Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash Final.
The Scorchers have been outstanding since Christmas, and while they were comfortably beaten in the Qualifier on Saturday night, they are justifiable $1.70 favourites to win this match; the Heat currently available at odds of $2.10.
The Scorchers’ batting has been impressive, and ably supported by one of, if not the best bowling attack in the league.
The Heat’s reliance on Chris Lynn hasn’t been as obvious in BBL10, though with that being said, the captain has still managed to knock five fifties during the season and has continued to play a crucial role.
I simply cannot tip against the Scorchers in this contest, but I am going to increase the value in my bet by including the result in a two-leg Same Game Multi.
