The final Sydney derby of the year gets underway on Saturday, and there’s a lot riding on it for both sides.
A win for the Thunder could see them momentarily leapfrog the Stars for a spot in the finals, while the Sixers could also make a push for second if they win out from here.
The Sixers are riding a handy three-game winning streak heading into this one, which has seen them firm into the favourites with the bookies. The Thunder, however, have won three of their last five against their home rivals.
As the favourites at home the Sixers are 2-1 against the Thunder, but since there’s little value on offer straight-up, you’ll have to look elsewhere. Daniel Hughes put up a whopping 51-runs on 44 balls during the win over Adelaide on Tuesday, now ranking third in the league in total fours. The 29-year-old looks great value to do some damage once again.
Tip: Sydney Sixers at $1.71
Value BET: MOM: Daniel Hughes at $9.00
