Both the Perth Scorchers and the Sydney Sixers will be competing for a spot in the BBL Final in the BBL Qualifier. There will be a second chance for either side to make it into this tournament after this coin toss, but only if they win this one.
It’s safe to say that Perth Scorchers are the favourite to win this match at every cricket betting website. While the Sydney Sixers have slowed down since their hot start, they are still a force to be reckoned with.

PER vs SYD Team Previews
The Perth Scorchers easily defeated the Brisbane Heat in their most recent match, ensuring that each of their players is in top form. In terms of their expectations, it was exactly what they were hoping for. Mitchell Marsh’s return to the Perth Scorchers ranks as the biggest positive for the team. He is in the best shape of his life and has scored runs nearly every time he has appeared in this year’s Big Bash.
A number of other Scorchers players are currently on a roll. Every player on the team is hitting the ball beautifully: Kurtis Patterson, Colin Munro, Ashley Turner, and Ashton Agar. It’s difficult to match the batting order’s strength and power.
Betting on the most sixes in this game should be placed on the Perth Scorchers.
The bowling attack will be led by Andrew Tye, Jason Behrendorff, and Peter Hatzglou. We expect Ashton Agar, whose bowling style should complement some of the Sixers’ batting, to receive some attention, but the Perth Scorchers have a strong batting lineup as well.
The team has no real flaws, so it’s no wonder it’s the front-runner.

As underdogs, the Sydney Sixers are unfamiliar territory for them. Their lineup is capable of defeating any team on most days, and they are the reigning champions. Despite this, we believe that they will have to perform at their highest level to overcome the Perth Scorchers on Saturday.
Moises Henriques, Josh Philippe, and Daniel Hughes appear to be the best hitters currently. Against an all-international bowling lineup and a young Jack Edwards, you may want to take a chance on the underdog in this match.
It appears that Jordan Silk has been overtaken by Dan Christian and Justin Avendano in the tournament lineup.
Although the team’s batting is strong, we don’t believe it is as strong or as deep as the Perth Scorchers’.
The Sydney Sixers have been fortunate to have Hayden Kerr as a player this season. As the Sixers’ leading wicket-taker, he is able to make an impact in most games. Sixers players Sean Abbott, Ben Dwarshius, and Steve O’Kayefe will believe they can keep the Perth Scorchers’ batting in check with their inclusion in the playing eleven.

Pitch and Conditions
We don’t expect any rain in Melbourne, thanks to the favourable weather forecast. Since the start of the season, Docklands’ pitch has been excellent. The small size of the field means that many sixes are likely to be hit. In the match betting market, you can look at the Over/Under line for the Total Sixes. It’s in everyone’s best interest to go “Over” when considering the talent on both sides.
Expect another high-scoring match where a total of 170 would be a reasonable expectation.
PER vs SYD Betting Tips
The Perth Scorchers are our pick to win this game. They appear to have the upper hand when it comes to batting power. Both teams, however, have a number of match-winners on their rosters. We expect this to be a close race between two evenly matched opponents. As a result, a game won or lost may come down to Mitch Marsh’s bat form and ability to perform under pressure.
Take the Perth Scorchers to victory.
