With four victories from their opening four games of the season, expect plenty to take the Scorchers at the very generous $2+ odds currently available. The team from Perth hasn’t suffered a hangover after winning last season’s grand final and have extended their win-streak to seven games, five of which have been by victories by six wickets or more. Although Brisbane can’t be ruled out and hold a decent record across their last six matches against Justin Langer’s side (3-3), it’s hard to turn an eye to the odds currently on offer for the visiting side.
Key stat: The Scorchers have won two of their three games against Brisbane at the Gabba
In seven matches against the Scorchers, Chris Lynn has amassed an incredible 328 runs at an average of 65.60. What’s more, he gathers those runs at a strike-rate just under 150. Paying $3.25, he must be considered. For the Scorchers, Michael Klinger once again tops the betting after his 61-ball 83 against the Sixers on New Year’s Day.
Key stat: Chris Lynn has three of the top five scores registered in games between Brisbane and Perth (98, 81 and 75*).
