Hobart Hurricanes v Brisbane Heat – Latest Odds
Latest odds from 1XBet (India site)*
To win the match odds*
- Hurricanes 11/10
- Heat 4/6
Despite being lower down the league table Brisbane Heat are actually the favourites for this game! They have just 1 win from 3 and a net run rate of -0.540. Apart from the one win against the high flying Sydney Sixers, they have been generally poor in the other game.
Brisbane Heat scores so far
- 143 all-out v Thunder
- 145/8 v Stars
- 209/4 v Sixers (Won)
- 109 all our v Scorchers
As you can see in 3 of the games they have struggled to break 150 runs when chasing. Their only win has come when they batted first and in some ways were under less pressure.
The Hobart Hurricanes have been less prolific with the bat but we’d say they have bowled well in their games. They have bowled out both the Sixers and the Renegades in their four games so far. The two defeats were both at the hands of the Melbourne Stars and one was via the D/L method due to rain limiting the game to just 11 overs each.
With the bat, they have also failed to get over 150 runs, like Brisbane Heat, but they have made up for it with the ball.
We would have both teams at 9/10 to win this match if we were pricing it up rather than any clear favourite.

Hurricanes v Heat – Betting Tips
Three tips for today’s game.
Tip – 1 Hurricanes to win the match 11/10 – 22Bet
The price on the Hurricanes is too good to turn down. As mentioned above neither team is in great form but the Heat have only 1 win so far and have not looked great when we have watched them.
This is advised as a smaller stake bet than usual as both teams are poor and it is a tough game to call. If the Hurricanes bat first then we would be more confident of the win as Brisbane Heat has been poor chasers so far.
Tip – 2 Top batsman runs in the match under 64.5 5/6 – Betway
This is a market we can only seem to find on the Betway India site (See the latest India welcome bonus here).
Both teams are struggling to make runs and this line looks to be set at a high bar. We know there are quality players like Darcy Short or Chris Lynn capable of making these scores but the value here is on the unders. We were expecting the line to be around 57.5 in this market.
Tip – 1 Darcy Short to hit a six 17/20
What value for Shorty here! In Big Bash history he’s knocked 60 sixes in just 39 innings. He hits a six in the Big Bash every 18 balls.
