The Strikers are steadily finding form at the pointy end of the season, but is it all too little, too late? I think so, particularly given they have to beat the Sixers tonight, who have opened very form $1.57 favourites in match betting.
Their inconsistency and apparent inability to get the W more often than not early in the campaign could ultimately prove their undoing, but given how open the competition has been in BBL11, they do actually step out today fourth on the ladder.
For the most part, the Sixers have been amongst the league’s two best sides again, and I think they will just win this clash.
The end of the season simply cannot arrive quickly enough for the Brisbane Heat, and things won’t get any easier for them when the ladder-leading Scorchers arrive in town tonight.
Their four-consecutive losses leading into this match really sums up their season, and while they were stuck with COVID outs for a couple of weeks, so too were nearly every other team.
The Scorchers do enter this match in losing form, but they are also quite clearly a class above this opponent.
