Despite the absence of key batsman Chris Lynn, Brisbane start favourite against an in-form Hurricanes outfit that has recorded three victories on the trot. In that respect, there’ll be plenty snapping up the value on the away side especially as Hobart possess a decent record against Brisbane at the Gabba of 3-3. In any event, runs can be expected given both sides are coming off high scoring matches, the Canes have posted 170+ in each of their last three games, and the teams have only ever played in one game together that had a match total under 340
Key stat: Hobart has beaten Brisbane of five of the last seven matches between the pair.
Matt Wade was boosted up the batting order last game and appeared to enjoy the added responsibility, posting his first 40+ score of the season. On that note, the $7 currently on offer for the combative keeper to be the Hurricanes’ High Bat appears great value. For the home side, Joe Burns could be the man to back given his good track record against this opposition. In six games, the former Test player has banked over 160 runs at an average of 40.75.
Key stat: Matt Wade has reached double figures in four of his five games this season.
