Sydney Thunder vs Brisbane Heat Betting Tips 06/12/2021

Teams Status

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder have lived under the shadow of their far more illustrious city rivals Sydney Sixers, winning just one title so far compared to the Sixers’ three. But they can cut that deficit in half with a title this year. That’s easier said than done though.  

They were knocked out in the knockout game last year, which was a slight improvement on their showing the year prior.

To take that next leap, they’ve had a bit of an overhaul over the summer, with both coaching and captaincy changes. Shane Bond and Callum Ferguson are gone and have been replaced by Trevor Bayliss and Usman Khawaja. Several decent names such as Saqib Mahmood and Sam Billings have been added.

Khawaja will be unavailable for the opener and a few more games after that as he is with the national team preparing for the Ashes. Chris Green is to lead the side in his absence.

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat are one of four teams that are living off of a solitary Big Bash title. Theirs came in just the second season of the league way back in 2012-13. Since then, they’ve not even made a final.

They did show some improvement last year, reaching the challenger game after three years of utter mediocrity. They took out Adelaide Strikers and Sydney Thunder in the playoffs before falling to Perth Scorchers, with a place in the final just around the corner.

The team is under new leadership this season as Chris Lynn has been replaced by Jimmy Peirson.

One injury blow for the Heat is that they will be without star batter Oliver Davies due to an ill-timed broken finger.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Brisbane to win @ 2.05

Of the two teams, Brisbane did much better last year. They also beat Sydney in both their fixtures and that too, comfortably. They’ve also added Tom Abell and Ben Duckett, while Michael Neser has also returned to give their squad a nice look. We’re backing them at underdog odds, which have been sourced from 22Bet.

Tip: Alex Hales to score more than 24.5 runs @ 1.85

Alex Hales was in sensational form in the Big Bash last season, which isn’t a big surprise as he almost always shines in T20 tournaments, provided that all other things are right. A few weeks ago, he made headlines for the wrong reasons after an old picture of him in blackface caused a furor on social media. The Thunder kept their faith in him and so now is the time for him to repay them as well as erase the memories of that unwanted controversy. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.


It is the first match of the season for both these sides. There is little to choose between the two. We lean towards a Brisbane win but those wanting to just get a feel of the tournament can also play the waiting game for a bit.
