Scorchers v Renegades BBL10

Welcome to our Perth Scorchers v Brisbane Heat betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 44 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Marvel Stadium, Melbourne, on Tuesday, January 19.

This is the first BBL match of the season at Marvel Stadium, so it’s hard to predict whether it will be a high-scoring affair or the bowlers will dominate.

It is also the first time these teams have played in BBL|10, but both teams have overcome slow starts to get back into the finals mix.

Perth Scorchers have won five of their past six matches and are sitting fifth, while the Heat have won four of their past five to be sitting sixth.

A full-points win to either side will take them to second spot, such is the evenness of this competition, aside from the dominant first-place Sixers and the Renegades, who can’t make the finals

Scorchers ace Mitchell Marsh is expected to miss this match because of a side strain that will prevent him bowling for the rest of the tournament, but it’s worth checking the teams close to the start as they are named only at the bat flip.

Scorchers v Heat betting tips

Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Scorchers v Heat tips for Tuesday’s BBL clash.

Joe Burns top run-scorer for Heat

The former Test opener should get plenty of overs to bat this time as the Docklands pitch should offer something to the opening bowlers especially. Perth have the best bowling attack in the league and we expect them to make some early inroads against what can be a dicey Heat top order. Burns has the temperament to stick around, coming in at four or five in T20 cricket.

Brisbane Heat to win match

The Heat are in really good form and have a useful pace attack. They also face a Perth side expected to be missing Mitchell Marsh and he is a huge out for them, especially if openers Jason Roy and Luke Livingstone don’t shine.

Scorchers v Heat prediction 19/1/2021

The Heat have been really good against quality opposition for the past few weeks and there is no reason they can’t step up again. We don’t think there is a huge amount between the teams named for this match so see the Heat as value as $2.20 outsiders. Our final Scorchers v Heat prediction: Heat to put themselves firmly in the mix with a surprise win.
