Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Sixers Betting Preview and Tips

Can the Sixers record their first win of the season against a resurgent Hurricanes side?

Sun, 7 Jan, 9:51 AM

Head to Head

The Hurricanes have won two consecutive games, scoring 180+ runs in each fixture. The Sixers on the other hand are having a season to forget, losing their last five in succession. However, this may be the match the Sydney side turn things around given they have beaten the Tasmanian unit in three of their last four meetings and have recorded two victories from three games at Bellerive. If you are willing to take a leap of faith on the men in pink you’ll enjoy very juicy $2.40 odds.


Key Stat: Over 300 runs have been scored in four of the last five games between the pair

High Bat

Sam Billings topped the scoring for the Sixers the last time these sides met and the Englishman could be the man to back once again. The right-hand bat has been in decent form, racking up scores of 22 and 33 in his last two outings. For the home side, Ben McDermott is well worth consideration. Best known for his incredible century in last year’s tournament, the 23-year old has shown glimpses of his best this season with a 34 and 49* and appears only a slice of luck away from going big.


Key Stat: Ben McDermott averages over 30 in T20 cricket at a strike-rate over 150.
