BBL Preview - Every match. Every day.

Updated: Jan 16

Every game previewed, every day.

BBL is starting, there's always tremendous excitement each year before it happens and then it seems to just drag on.

Let's hope that doesn't happen this year and we're still in love with the BBL come late January.

Each day, we will preview the BBL and provide you our selections.

We're going to start with a BBL bank of $200.

Let's get started.


Starting Balance: $400

Current Balance: $800

Ouch - that hurts.

I didn't see much of the game and a bit of blurry eyed this morning I check the results the Sixers seemingly have done it pretty comfortably. I'll stick fat with the Scorchers but, still keen on them.

17th January - Melbourne Stars $1.54 vs Melbourne Renegades $2.48

How could you possibly back the Renegades? Surely they move Finchy back up to the top of the order.

Perhaps it's the Melbourne Derby that'll get them going - they need some tonic.

I'll be sticking with the Stars, big victory the other day and batting line up just seems too deep for the Renegades bowling line up.

Despite the Renegades form - think this'll be a good one - but I'll back the Stars in a Sunday night classic.

$100 on the Stars @ $1.54.


Starting Balance: $400

Current Balance: $929

Stars thumped the Strikers - that was nasty and never in doubt.

How about that balance now - fark we're rolling. Some people definitely dropped off when we were doing our cash early in the competition but now we've got our back up!

Blockbuster clash tonight, here we go!

16th January - Sydney Sixers $2.02 vs Perth Scorchers $1.78

How can I possibly tip against the Scorchers? They've been very good to us over the past fortnight or so and whilst the confidence takes a bit of a hit with Mitch Marsh ruled out - I'll still be piling in.

This could be final, although I don't know if the Sixers will make it in the end, the Scorchers on the other hand are my tip to take it all out.

Josh Philippe and Dan Christian have found some form and are leading the Sixers batting unit well - they'll have to contend with the Scorchers very strong bowling line up.

This'll be a good one!

Tipping the Scorchers to get the job done.

$129 on the Scorchers @ $1.78.


Starting Balance: $400

Current Balance: $794.67

Don't look now but the Heat have moved into 5th - they're not far off 3rd in fact. Here we go!

Always looked in control last night - what about Aaron Finch batting @ 4! What a wierd move!

15th January - Melbourne Stars $1.69 vs Adelaide Strikers $2.16

No Rashid Kahn, no Strikers. That's the way I am looking at it - even though the Stars have treated me poorly this year.

The focus will of course be on the test match in Brisbane today but this is a pretty good game to look forward to afterwards.

Glenn Maxwell is due - he's been seeing them like Finchy lately. Expecting the Big Show to go BIG tonight.

The Strikers, to their credit, do have a fairly underrated batting line up, but I just think those 4 overs and helicopter style batting they lose from Rashid is going to dent the confidence.
