Heat v Thunder betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL Match 28 Preview

Brisbane Heat v Sydney Thunder January 4

Welcome to our Brisbane Heat v Sydney Thunder betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 28 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at the Gabba, Brisbane, on Monday, January 4.

This match will provide a massive test for the Heat, who have breathed life into their season with two wins in their past three matches including against the top team Sydney Sixers at this ground on Saturday night.

Darren Lehman’s team have taken on a much more seasoned look with the arrival of Englishman Joe Denly and the return of Joe Burns from Test duty. They also have captain Chris Lynn close to a return from a hamstring injury and South African legend Morne Morkel, a naturalised Australian who lives in Sydney, ready to join the attack.

Lynn could play as early as this match, but the teams won’t be announced til the toss so be sure to check them late.

The Heat will need all the help they can get against the rampant Thunder, who have won their past five matches. A win here would take the Thunder ahead of their arch rivals the Sixers and back to the top of the table.

Heat v Thunder betting tips

Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Heat v Thunder tips for Monday night’s BBL clash.

Brisbane Heat to win

The Heat have really cleaned up their act since they got back to Brisbane and the Gabba. They really should be heading into this on the back of three straight wins. We successfully tipped them to beat the Sixers and they got the job done and we think they can do it again.

Joe Denly top run-scorer for Heat

The veteran Englishman looked composed in his first outing on Saturday night but no doubt he will feel more comfortable heading into this match. It’s important to check if Lynn is playing but in any case we will be sticking with Denly to anchor the innings. 

Heat v Thunder prediction 4/1/2021

These teams met earlier in the season and the Heat were on course for the win until some astonishing hitting by Thunder paceman Daniels Sams changed the course of the game. That win was the first of five straight for the Thunder. The Heat have a score to settle with the Sydney team and also their former teammate Ben Cutting who is now lining up with the Thunder. This is a clash to look forward to with plenty of feeling expected. Our final Heat v Thunder prediction? Heat to win.
