Hurricanes v Scorchers betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 47 Preview
Welcome to our Hobart Hurricanes v Perth Scorchers betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 47 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Marvel Stadium, Melbourne, on Friday, January 22.
Such is the tightness of this tournament, the Hurricanes are in sixth place, yet are only one point behind the second-placed Scorchers.
So it goes without saying that this is a crucial clash for both teams, and the Hurricanes have a few tough and interesting calls to make at the selection table.
Test skipper Tim Paine and dashing left-handed batsman Matthew Wade are available again, but the Hurricanes’ incumbent keeper Ben McDermott has been in super form with bat and gloves.
Wade will want to put some indifferent Test form behind him here and he seems the more likely of the duo to be rushed straight into T20 action for this match.
Meanwhile, the Scorchers won’t be able to call upon young all-rounder Cameron Green, who is quarantining in WA after an arduous Test campaign. But they will regain injured skipper Mitchell Marsh, who will most likely play as a batsman only and not be risked bowling after suffering a side strain.
Read on for our free Hurricanes v Scorchers tips ahead of their T20 clash in Melbourne on Friday, January 22.

Hurricanes v Scorchers betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Hurricanes v Scorchers tips for Friday’s BBL clash.
Sandeep Lamichhane more than 1.5 wickets
The Nepalese leg-spinner has had a slow start to his stint in BBL|10 but should be ready now after five matches to bring his best and the pitch at Marvel Stadium should be helpful. With the likes of Rashid Khan departing early it’s up to the likes of Lamichhane and Mitch Swepson from the Heat to pick up the mantle for the spinning brigade.
Total sixes over 11.5 at $1.85
Not a huge dividend here but this could be a useful anchor leg for multibets. Some of the biggest hitters in the tournament go on display here, including Ben McDermott, who has hit more maximums than anyone in this tournament this season, with 21. Next best is Alex Hales with 18.
Hurricanes v Scorchers prediction 22/1/2021
The Hurricanes need their much-vaunted top order to fire. McDermott has been sensational, but Malan and Short need more runs. Adding Wade to the mix helps as he will love the idea of playing with abandon. Perth have the better bowling attack but we will back the Canes to get the better of them this time around. Our final Hurricanes v Scorchers prediction: Hurricanes to win.
