Sixers v Strikers betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL Game 11 Preview
Welcome to our Sydney Sixers v Adelaide Strikers betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 11 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Blundstone Arena, Hobart, on Sunday, December 20.
Both these teams are rated strong contenders for the BBL title and both bounced back from opening-game losses to win their second matches in great style.
The Sixers in particular were brutal in their 144-run demolition of the Melbourne Renegades, and they have been boosted for this clash with the arrival of West Indies skipper Jason Holder. Holder is signed up for only a three-match stint and joins fellow West Indies star Carlos Brathwaite and James Vince among the international trio.
The Strikers though are rated $1.80 favourites for this clash wtih leading international bookies, with the defending champion Sixers the $2 outsiders.
Adelaide Strikers look like a different team with Australian limited-overs keeper Alex Carey back at the top of the batting order, but they will need to be at their best against an attack featuring the likes of in-form Ben Dwarshuis, who leads the BBL top wicket-takers list.

Sixers v Strikers betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Sixers v Strikers tips for Sunday’s BBL clash.
Sixers to win the match at $2
It’s hard not to be impressed by the way the Sixers demolished their rivals with bat and ball last weekend. Their key players struck form and Holder only makes them stronger. We think the bookies have it slightly wrong this time and would have the Sixers as clear favourites.
James Vince top run-scorer for the Sixers
The Englishman has looked in great touch in his two knocks so far and he is alwayds a dangerous proposition. It has not helped openers greatly now that the opening powerplay is only four overs, but that sometimes also ensures they touch the brakes a touch and try to survive longer that ordinarily might.
Sixers v Strikers prediction 20/12/2020
We expect both these teams to be there late in the finals, but we will go with the outsiders Sixers for this one. Holder is a fine all-round player and they have plenty of firepower even before their Test players return late in the season. Our final Sixers v Strikers prediction: Sixers to prove slightly too strong.
