Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Sixers Betting Tips 17/01/2022

The 51st fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Adelaide Strikers take on Sydney Sixers on Jan 17 (Monday) at Adelaide Oval. The match is to begin at 11:35 am IST.

Teams Status

Adelaide Strikers

This will be Adelaide Strikers’ last round-robin match of this season. They currently occupy the fourth spot with one more playoff spot below them but their position is not as comfortable as it looks.

They hold the fourth position only because of a better NRR than the fifth-placed Hobart Hurricanes. That means that they are theoretically exposed to being usurped by not just Hobart but also Melbourne Stars and Brisbane Heat.

Adelaide are on a three-match winning streak that has propelled them in mid-table spots after slumbering on the lower echelons for so long.

They beat Melbourne Stars in their last game, thanks to a 73 by Jonathan Wells and a four-for by Henry Thornton, who has impressed in all three of his BBL outings so far and seems like shrewd recruitment.

Sydney Sixers

The Sixers are back to the second spot after being overtaken for a bit by their less illustrious city rivals Sydney Thunder.

What makes the usurping even sweeter is the fact that it came after the Sixers hammered the Thunder again in the second Sydney Smash of the season.

Coming into Friday’s encounter, the Sixers were told to be a bit concerned against a Thunder side that had impressed immensely over the past month. But they proved again that they are the bigger of the two Sydney sides by first amassing 197 runs before restricting the Thunder to just 137, which would have been even less if it wasn’t for returning Thunder skipper Chris Green’s 50.

The game also saw the return of Steve O’Keefe for the Sixers, with the left-arm spinner picking up four key wickets.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sydney Sixers to win @ 1.59

We are nearing the business end of the season, which is when the Sixers come alive. Adelaide have impressed but there is no way we’re going to bet against the Sixers, who just slew the Thunder. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Jordan Silk total runs over 16.5 @ 1.87

Jordan Silk has scored 36 and 38 in his last two outings against Adelaide Strikers. The number five Sydney batter seems comfortable finding runs against the Strikers. We’re going to back him to cover the spread here. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


Sydney Sixers have beaten Adelaide Strikers in each of their last five meetings. We do not expect this game to spring any surprises.
