Betting Tips

  • Sydney Thunder have a very strong batting line up and most of their batsmen are in top form.
  • The batting for Sydney Sixers looks a little vulnerable. Though most of their players have some runs behind them, they’ve failed to deliver collective performance.
  • Sydney Thunders have a very good bowling attack too which we think will create lot of problems for Sixers batsmen.

SYT vs SYS Prediction & Betting tips, BBL 2020-21

The two teams of the points table i.e Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers collide for the battle of supremacy in the 38th match of the Big Bash League. The match will be played at the Manuka Oval and is set to begin at 7:15 Pm local time.

If there was one match that the fans was eagerly waiting for, it’s got to be this epic encounter between Sydney Thunders and Sydney Sixers. Both teams have been top class in the tournament and settled at the first two spots in the points table.

Sydney Thunders lost their last match to Perth Scorchers but they boast of a very strong team and we expect them to bounce back in style against Sydney Sixers. 

Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales, Cullum Ferguson, Sam Billings, Alex Ross forms a strong batting line up. Ben Cutting has also been very good with the bat on occasions. The only issues we see in their batting is that they’ve a very long tail. However, the top order looks good enough to get them through on most occasions. 

The bowling has also been top class with Adam Milne and Naathan McAndrew leading the charge. Brendan Doggett picket up 4 wickets in the last match will also be a big threat. 
The spin duo of Tanveer Sangha and Chris Green will get a lot of purchase from this wicket and will pose a stern challenge to Sydney Sixers.

For Sydney Sixers, even though they won their last game against Brisbane Heat, we have few concerns about their batting.

For Sydney Sixers, Josh Philippe, James Vince, Daniel Hughes, Jordan Silk have been good in the tournament but haven’t been that consistent. Same can be said about the all rounders i.e Carlos Brathwaite and Daniel Christian. If all of them can perform collectively, they can be a hard nut to crack.

The bowling has been good throughout though with Jack Bird, Llyod Pope, Jake Ball, Steve o Keefe performing well in almost every game. The all round options of Daniel Christian and Carlos Brathwaite have been decent too.

So overall, both teams have performed well in the tournament but Sixers batting looks a little vulnerable to us. They’ve not been very consistent and can collapse against quality bowling unit. Thus, we’ll go in with Thunders as the winner of this match.
