We take a look at Sunday’s (13/1/2019) BBL Big Bash 2019 match between the Sydney Thunder and Adelaide Strikers. The Strikers head into the match as favourites to win in Sydney and on their recent form should be hard to beat.

The Strikers close out Round 7 on just a day’s rest following their match against the Stars at home on Friday, and if their recent record against the Thunder is anything to go by, we should be in for a real treat.
Adelaide have won four straight over Sydney dating back to 2017 and not surprisingly enter this one as the favourite. The Thunder’s season is going backwards fast with four losses and just three wins to their name, capped off by a 15-run defeat to the hapless Heat earlier in the week.
The Strikers are 2-1 on the road this season and are also 3-1 as the away favourite against Sydney. With Jake Weatherald smacking half a ton against the Sixers last Sunday, Adelaide should polish off their second Sydney side this fortnight.
Tip: Adelaide Strikers at $1.61
Value BET: MOM: Jake Weatherald at $8.00
