A big Adelaide Oval crowd will be on hand to watch the spectacle that should be the Strikers vs. Heat. These teams have met on six occasions with honours shared at three apiece. Interestingly, 300+ runs have been scored on five of those occasions and 350+ runs have been racked up in the last two games between the pair. On that note, backing big runs once again might be the way to go given both franchises have posted totals of 150+ on two occasions already this season.
Key stat: The Heat has won all three of their matches against the Strikers at the Adelaide Oval.
Alex Carey of the Strikers appears tremendous value at odds nearing the $4 mark. The keeper-batsman has been in fine touch banking scores of 83*, 44, 139 and 20* across his last three matches (all competitions). After four games in the short form of the game, Carey has an average of 74.00 at a strike-rate of 135.77. For the Heat, Joe Burns is impossible to ignore at very juicy $5.50 odds.
Key stat: Joe Burns last six scores (all formats) are 45*, 50, 202*, 4, 81 and 103.
Heat to win and have the highest opening partnership.
