Adelaide Strikers vs Hobart Hurricanes Betting Tips 05/01/2022

The 35th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Adelaide Strikers host Hobart Hurricanes at Adelaide Oval on Jan 5 (Wednesday). The match is to begin at 12:35 pm IST.

Teams Status

Adelaide Strikers

Adelaide Strikers have now lost six straight matches, with a majority of them not even close, which tells you how dire the situation has been for them thus far.

The “thus far” hints that the future could potentially be better and we base that on the fact that the Strikers have not been hit by the Covid outbreak in BBL yet.

While several others of their rivals have temporarily lost several players to the virus, the Strikers walk scot-free, although they are set to lose England’s George Garton to national duty, but then again he wasn’t setting the world alight anyway and was dropped in the last game.

Any Covid advantage will have to wait though as their opponents Hobart Hurricanes also do not have any virus absentees and will be at their full strength.

Hobart Hurricanes

It’s no secret that Hobart Hurricanes pack a lot of talent and have arguably the best and the most explosive front two in the entire league. 

They’ve had some splendid results but at the same time have also produced some dismal performances, one of which came in the last game when they failed to chase down 151 — a target quite modest due to their form until then. 

For once, neither of their openers performed, contributing just a single run collectively. That opened up the soft belly of their middle order, most of whose members either failed or batted at snail’s pace.

With the team wobbling at 93 for 7, tail-enders showed some resistance but in vain.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Hobart to win @ 1.65

Hobart Hurricanes have had their jolt with an upset loss in the last game. They can be inconsistent and susceptible to surprises but they are also far stronger than Adelaide, which is why we are backing them here. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Ben McDermott to score more than 26.5 runs @ 1.87

In his last two matches against Adelaide, Ben McDermott has scores of an unbeaten 110 and 46. The man clearly has a liking for the Strikers, and when that’s the case, what’s another 26.5 runs for him. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


One team is strong, the other team is not. What’s more to discuss here? Hobart are the stronger side and they should get the W if all goes according to plan.
