Sixers v Scorchers betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL Match 41 Preview
Welcome to our Sydney Sixers v Perth Scorchers betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 41 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Manuka Oval, Canberra, on Saturday, January 16.
This match pits the top teams in betting to win BBL10 against each other. The Sixers are sitting pretty on top of the table after they defeated arch rivals Sydney Thunder in their most recent outing.
Meanwhile, the Scorchers have gone on a five-match winning streak and blitzed all rivals at their home ground in Perth. The difficulty for the Scorchers this time is they must bring their form on the road and must also cope without star all-rounder Mitchell Marsh (side strain).
Marsh is unlikely to bowl again in this tournament but the Scorchers hope to have him playing as a batsman before the finals start.
The Scorchers thrashed the Sixers at their only previous meeting this season 10 days ago but that was an aberration for the red-hot Sixers, who have been ultra-consistent.
Read on for our free Sixers v Scorchers tips ahead of their T20 clash at Canberra on Saturday, January 16.

Sixers v Scorchers betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Sixers v Scorchers tips for Saturday night’s BBL clash.
Daniel Hughes top-scorer for Sixers
The left-hander is a class batsman who likely will be the player designated to anchor the innings against a world-class Scorchers attack. Hughes is generally more comfortable against the pace bowlers and expect the Scorchers to bowl Ashton Turner and Fawad Ahmed as soon as Hughes comes into bat..
Lloyd Pope leading wicket-taker for Sixers
The young leggie has not had a great tournament but should find conditions to suit here. He can really turn the ball and the last couple of matches at this ground have been productive for the tweakers.
Sixers v Scorchers prediction 16/1/2021
This should be a great preview with the finals looming as both these teams should be major players. Marsh’s injury is a huge blow and fingers crossed he is back quickly as there are few more damaging batsmen in the game when he is firing. We think the Sixers deserve to be at least equal favourites for this game so are happy to be on them at the odds. Our final Sixers v Scorchers prediction? Sixers to win a close one.
