The bowling department consisting of Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, and Fawad Ahmed did not perform up to the mark against the Sixers in the last match, but the Scorchers could go into this match unchanged.

Our Tipster’s Angle

Lately, the Perth Scorchers have struck form this season. In the BBL history, these two teams have played 13 times against each other, the Scorchers have won seven of those matches. The Scorchers have an experienced bunch of T20 players in their lineup and the players are performing well as a team. Considering the current form, the Scorchers have an edge over the Heat.

Tip 1: Total Opening Partnership – Perth Scorchers – Over 23.5

The inclusion of Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone at the top of the order has proven to be a masterstroke for the Scorchers. In the last six innings together, the English pair have an average first wicket partnership of 55.33. The last three partnerships together for the pair have been 76, 123, and 12. In their previous innings together, Roy and Livingstone had a partnership of 76 against the Sixers. Livingstone has been in great touch, he has scored 190 runs with 13 sixes in just even innings so far this season. The Heat lack experience upfront in their bowling lineup, thus Roy and Livingstone are most likely to exploit this and score big at the top. Considering all these factors, the opening partnership for the Scorchers is most likely to be over 23.5 runs and 1.88 odds are available for the same on the Casumo sportsbook.

Tip 2: Top Run Scorer – Brisbane Heat – Chris Lynn

Chris Lynn back from his injury concerns has batted in six innings so far for the Heat. He has scored 273 runs with a strike rate of 145.99 and at an average of 45.50. Lynn, known for his boundary scoring skills has hit 21 sixes and 14 fours this season. His last three scores have been 50, 56, and 48. Lynn has an exceptional record against the Scorchers, he has played 12 innings against the Scorchers in the BBL and has scored 484 runs with a strike rate of 141.11 and at an average of 53.78. However, this would be the first time he would face the Scorchers this season, and will be looking to continue his form. So it is more likely that Chris Lynn will top score for the Heat at 3.00 odds available on the Casumo sportsbook.


The Perth Scorchers have been consistent in the last few games and are currently well placed in the points table. The Heat have performed well in patches but are yet to show some consistent form.
