Scorchers v Sixers betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 30 Preview
Welcome to our Perth Scorchers v Sydney Sixers betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 30 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Optus Stadium, Perth, on Wednesday, January 6.
This game marks near halfway in the 61-game BBL10 tournament, and it is a crucial one as far as the looming finals go.
Sydney Sixers are 5-2 and sitting top of the table with their best players in peak form. The Scorchers are 2-3 with one washout and sitting back in seventh place, but are starting to run into form.
The Scorchers’ two wins have come at their past two games against the Strikers and Renegades, but they will need to raise their game again to beat the high-flying Sixers.
A loss could spell disaster for the Scorchers, who have looked a lot better since gaining English pair Jason Roy and Luke Livingstone from quarantine. They have a high-class bowling attack but are feeling the loss of top-class limited-overs spinner Ashton Agar to injury.
The Sixers can just about lock away a finals berth with another victory here, and it’s going to be exciting to watch players such as Josh Philippe and James Vince on the quick Perth pitch.
Read on for our free Scorchers v Sixers tips ahead of their T20 clash in Perth on Wednesday, January 6.
