Thunder v Sixers betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 38 Preview
Welcome to our Sydney Thunder v Sydney Sixers betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 38 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Manuka Oval, Canberra, on Wednesday, January 13.
The first Sydney derby of the BBL10 season is to be played in Canberra, with the fact the Sixers and Thunder are sitting one and two on the table adding extra spice to the contest. They have identical 6-3 records but the Sixers are two points clear thanks to securing more bonus points.
A win for the Sixers would really give them some breathing space at the top of the table, with stars such as Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Starc and Sean Abbott due back late in the season after Test duty.
Thunder all-rounder Daniel Sams is ready to return after concussion to lead the bowling attack as well as lend some heavy hitting to the middle order.
But the Sixers’ bowling spearhead Ben Dwarshuis (groin) is expected to miss one more more match, although he has been named in the squad.

Thunder v Sixers betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Thunder v Sixers tips for Wednesday’s BBL clash.
Sixers to win at $2
There should be precious little between these two teams, in which case we would have to favor the outsiders in betting this time around. The Sixers also have a couple of all-rounders in Dan Christian and Carlos Brathwaite who have hit form at the right time of the season.
Daniel Hughes man of the match at $11
The Sixers skipper has looked rock solid this season and if he can overcome his occasional early problems against quality spin bowling we expect him to be a key player in this match. Hughes is one player who can go on with the job once he gets a start. So many T20 players can hammer a quick 30 but Hughes tends to push on, as he is more a classic style of batsman.
Thunder v Sixers prediction 13/1/2021
This will be a beauty with some real feeling between the teams and a lot on the line in terms to BBL ladder positions with the finals looming. The weather forecast is clear so we should have no problem getting in the full match and it should be one to savour for cricket fans all over. While they will miss Dwarshius, the Sixers have been able to respond to most challenges this season in grand style. Our final Thunder v Sixers prediction: Sixers to win and skip clear atop the table.
