Sydney Thunder vs Sydney Sixers Betting Tips

The 2017/18 BBL gets underway with the all Sydney derby! Will it be the Sixers night? Or can the Thunder deliver an opening night upset?

Tue, 19 Dec, 12:13 AM


Head to Head


The seventh edition of the Big Bash begins tonight when the Sydney teams meet at Spotless. Despite losing the last match between the pair, the Sixers have won eight of their 11 games against the Thunder and will enter the fixture as favourite.


Key stat: The Sixers have only been beaten in two of their last six Big Bash outings.



High Bat


Jos Buttler didn’t enjoy a particularly successful campaign in the BPL for the Comilla Victorians, but don’t let that deter you from considering him in the High Bat market. The hard hitting Englishman has an average of 28.47 in T20 cricket at a very respectable strike rate of 144.11 and will be out to impress his new side in what will be his second stint in the BBL. For the Sixers, skipper Moises Henriques shapes as great value at odds up around $5.


Key stat: Moises Henriques scored an unbeaten 76 from 41 balls in the 2016 season opener against the Thunder.


Tip 1: Win Market - Sixers

Tip 2: Highest Opening Partnership - Sixers
