Thunder v Hurricanes betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 43 Preview
Welcome to our Sydney Thunder v Hobart Hurricanes betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 43 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Manuka Oval, Canberra, on Monday, January 18.
These teams clashed at Optus Stadium in Perth just 11 days earlier, with the Hurricanes struggling in their run chase and reaching only 8-128 in reply to 5-167.
The Hurricanes have slumped badly since their barnstorming start to the campaign and another loss here could just about cruel their chances of playing in the finals.
The Hurricanes are sitting second-last in the standings and have farewelled South African T20 specialist Colin Ingram so really need a lift from their top three batsmen of D’Arcy Short, Ben McDermott and Dawid Malan.
The good news for the ‘Canes is they are only four points off the second-placed Thunder. A win here would likely send them to fourth place for the time being.
Meanwhile, the Thunder have also hit a mini-slump with two successive losses to the Scorchers and Sixers, though they were unlucky against the Sixers in a rain-affected match.
Read on for our free Thunder v Hurricanes tips ahead of their T20 clash in Canberra on Monday, January 18.

Thunder v Hurricanes betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Thunder v Hurricanes tips for Monday’s BBL clash.
Hurricanes to win at $2.10
We will go for the Hurricanes to cause a minor upset and win this match simply because they have to. Their top order is full of class and they are due to run hot after a couple of disappointing displays with the bat.
D’Arcy Short man of the match at $8
The left-handed opener has been in better form with the ball than he has with the bat but it’s only a matter of time before he runs hot with the willow. When he gets going there are few better strikers of the ball. We will back him in that this will be the night.
Thunder v Hurricanes prediction 18/1/2021
This should be a fascinating contest and with the finals so close each point is like gold dust. The Thunder have opener Alex Hales in damaging form along with Usman Khawaja. In fact, the early battle between Hobart express bowler Riley Meredith and that pair will go a long way to deciding the match. If they can remove, especially, Hales early it will be a huge blow. Our final Thunder v Hurricanes prediction: Hurricanes to win the match.
