Scorchers v Hurricanes betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 37 Preview
Welcome to our Perth Scorchers v Hobart Hurricanes betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 37 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Optus Stadium, Perth, on Tuesday, January 12.
The Scorchers are all of a sudden the hottest team in the BBL with four wins on the bounce and they have moved up to fifth place on the table. This is their chance to overtake the fourth-placed Hurricanes, and is important as this is their last match at home for the regular season at least, though that could change depending on border restrictions.
The Hobart side was brilliant early in the tournament and boast an impressive batting line-up on paper.
But star opener D’Arcy Short has been out of sorts with the bat, while express paceman Riley Meredith was a late withdrawal from their latest match with a side strain. The ‘Canes need Short firing and will also be sweating on the fitness of Meredith, who has been so impressive he is in the mix for Australian limited-over selection.

Scorchers v Hurricanes betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Scorchers v Hurricanes tips for Tuesday’s BBL clash.
D’Arcy Short top scorer for Hurricanes
We will stick with the dashing left-hander. He snared three wickets with his left-arm leg spin at this ground in his latest outing and that should give him confidence to return to his best with the bat. He has played a lot of Shield cricket for Western Australia so is virtually on home turf and sooner of later he will find his mojo with the willow.
Andrew Tye more than 1.5 wickets for Scorchers
Tye is a world-class bowler in the shorter forms of the game and usually bowls in power plays, meaning the opposition batsmen must come after him hard. He has really been bowling superbly in the past few weeks.
Scorchers v Hurricanes prediction 12/1/2021
Jhye Richardson, Jason Behrendorff and Tye form the nucleus of what is an international-standard pace attack for the Scorchers. Throw in veteran leggie Fawad Ahmed and Mitch Marsh, and the Scorchers have clearly the best bowling line-up in the BBL. That is going to make life difficult for the the Hurricanes top order, though they have real class, too. The Scorchers batters are also a quality line-up. We think the Scorchers are the team to beat for the title. Our final Scorchers v Thunder prediction: Scorchers to make it five straight wins.
