Perth Scorchers vs Sydney Sixers Betting Tips 28/01/2022

The final of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Perth Scorchers take on Sydney Sixers at Docklands Stadium, Melbourne on Jan 28 (Friday). The match is to begin at 2:10pm IST.

Teams Status

Perth Scorchers

Perth Scorchers breezed through the round robin stage, winning 11 of its 14 games and taking the easiest route to the final by besting none other than Sydney Sixers in the playoffs Qualifiers.

In all, they have beaten the Sixers in all three of their meetings so far this season and have pretty much avenged last year’s finals defeat. It would of course mean nothing if they don’t assert their dominance in the decisive, winner-take-all game here.

Their cause has received a massive boost, with news being that superstar Mitch Marsh has recovered from his hamstring injury and could be available for contention.

But even without him, the Scorchers have plenty of firepower in the tank to trouble the Sixers.

Sydney Sixers

Sydney Sixers were incredible hot at the start of the tournament, cooled off for a while but found their feet again and managed to make the final again. Their being in this position despite injuries and Covid-caused problems speaks of their winning pedigree.

The Sixers made the final on their second attempt. After losing to Perth, they beat Adelaide Strikers in the Challenger in a fiercely contested game – thanks to Hayden Kerr’s heroics (98* in run chase) and qualified for their third straight final.

However, they have a few problems ahead of this game. Steve O’Keefe (calf), Jordan Silk (hamstring), Daniel Hughes (ankle) and captain Moises Henriques (calf) all have injury problems whereas Josh Philippe has the virus. They’ve again asked Cricket Australia for permission to use Steven Smith but it remains to be seen if they will have their wish on the second time of asking.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Kurtis Patterson total runs over 21.5 @ 1.87

Kurtis Patterson has been in pretty good nick of late and has gotten runs in each of his team’s last three games. He got 64 in the previous game, which was against the Sixers too. His approach is also a lot more measured as opposed to fellow opener Josh Inglis’s gung-ho style. We back him to cover the spread here. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Tip: Hayden Kerr to score more than 16.5 runs @ 1.87

Granted that it’s still early days for Hayden Kerr at this level but the 25-year-old showed he’s got game in the last game, smashing a brilliant 98 to get his team home. It showed that he has a decent head on his shoulders and he can remain calm under pressure. Now we cannot expect him to repeat the same performance or get anywhere near, with so many injuries, it will be expected of him to provide a foundation. Besides, the 16.5-run spread is very modest for a man of his talent. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


The Sixers can never be ruled out in a final but Perth are just way too strong here. We don’t see any other result rather than a Perth win.
