Big Bash League is a high-octane T20 tournament, which showcases some of the finest talents in the world. The sheer popularity of the tournament makes the BBL betting one of the most popular features on the leading betting websites.

Likewise, some of the thrilling encounters in the current edition have added sparkle to the glorious history of Big Bash. Nineteen league matches have been played so far and 27 are more to go. But the unexpected results are keeping the loyal audience captivated even during the coronavirus pandemic.

Hobart Hurricanes’ match against Brisbane Heat on Monday was one such encounter where the unexpected result sparked fans’ interest in struggling Heat.

Hurricanes entered the match with three wins in four matches. But Heat turned the tables on the rivals and their maiden BBL10 victory by four wickets with 16 balls to spare. Heat will face home team Hurricanes at the same ground — The Gabba — on Wednesday, where it had won the match just two days ago. Going into the fixture, Heat will certainly have a psychological edge. Hurricanes, however, can keep their loss aside, and play with a fresh perspective to retake the reins of the winning chariot.

As the momentum of the highly-awaited Hurricanes-Heat encounter builds up, the BBL betting is expected to be a sought-after affair on the match day. We take you through some of the best bets, which are getting high traction on the leading betting sites.

Hobart Hurricanes

Top batsman

All-rounder D’Arcy Short emerges the best bet for Hurricanes. Although his performance of 27 runs and 3/18 in the previous match against Heat couldn’t take his team to win, he is betting websites’ top choice. He is 3.25 favourite with 10cric and Funbet to be the highest scorer for his team. Betway is offering 3.0, while Bet365 has 3.50 for Short to play a big knock.

His English teammate Dawid Malan has odds of 3.75 each with 10cric and Funbet, while Betway and Bet365 are offering 3.50 and 4.00 for him, respectively. He scored just 15 runs in his first outing. All he needs to do is to play a big knock and prove his worth.

Top bowler

Hurricanes got a big jolt as their star bowler James Faulkner (8 wickets in 5 matches) suffered a hamstring injury against Heat on Sunday. In his absence, pacer Riley Meredith shoulders the responsibility of leading Hurricanes’ bowling attack.

Though 10cric and Funbet are still keeping Faulkner with odds of 3.25 each for the top spot, he is highly unlikely to play the match. Meredith is the top bowler with Bet365 and Betway, who have 3.75 and 4.00 odds, respectively.
