Brisbane Heat vs Perth Scorchers Betting Tips 17/01/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The 52nd fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Brisbane Heat take on Perth Scorchers at Docklands Stadium, Melbourne on Jan 17 (Monday). The match is to begin at 2:45 pm IST.

Teams Status

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat are out of the competition following their defeat to Melbourne Stars on Sunday. They scored 149-6, thanks to Ben Duckett’s 51 and modest contributions from elsewhere but the Stars openers just took over the game in the run chase.

A 104-run stand for the opening wicket effectively killed the game and the Heat’s slim hopes of staying alive in the tournament.

The defeat came despite the Heat squad getting late reinforcements in the form of Michael Neser and Mitch Swepson.

The incentive now for the Heat ahead of their final two games is to avoid the bottom spot and with it the dreaded wooden spot, which Melbourne Renegades have taken home the last two years and are again the favourites for.

Perth Scorchers

Perth Scorchers got a jolt in their last game as they were beaten by the resurgent Adelaide Strikers in a rare unimpressive display.

However, they still occupy the top spot and are the favourites to finish as league leaders. A win here would put them out of reach of Sydney Sixers.

They are also being bolstered at the right time, with Josh Inglis, Colin Munro, and Mitchell Marsh all returning, although Laurie Evans is still out injured.

Marsh’s return, in particular, would be massive as he was in scintillating form before being called up to the Ashes squad.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Perth Scorchers to win @ 1.60

The upset in the last game aside, Perth have been the team to beat the entire tournament. They are also getting key players back. It’s a no-brainer to back them over a side that has no real reason to stay competitive. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Chris Lynn to score more than 23.5 runs @ 1.87

This hasn’t been a memorable tournament for Chris Lynn, who has a single half-century to his name this BBL. That said, he often gets starts but does not manage to get far. We’re backing him to try harder – now that the pressure of qualification is over – and see him get to 20s or 30s before fizzling out again. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


Perth have beaten Brisbane in all but one game in their last five meetings. That shows dominance, which we think is likely to continue again.
