Heat look to build on recent form
Brisbane Heat have made some late progress to their season to give a fledging year some big boost towards the end. They have won each of their last three matches and have gathered some momentum although it’s still tough for them to fight their way to a place in the next stage. Their odds against a strong Sydney Sixers stand at 1.83, equal to their odds of losing this game, perhaps a reflection of how they have resurrected their season, even if only partly.
The Sixers, meanwhile, have lost two of their last four matches and have squandered their start to the season which saw them placed at the pole position. That right belongs to another Sydney franchise now. In their recent ill run, the Sixers also lost to the Heat and their odds of winning this game stand at 1.83

Overall record makes Sixers overwhelming favourites
Overall record gives Sixers a major edge against the Brisbane Heat. They have won 10 and lost just three head to head games against a Brisbane Heat side that has perennially underperformed in the Big Bash League’s history. However, it’s worth noting that two of those three wins came in the last two seasons.
RECOMMENDED BET: Sydney Sixers have a strong squad and good form with them and have odds of 1.83 to beat the Heat.
When these teams met earlier this season, the Heat triumphed with a late cameo from Lewis Gregory and Jack Wildermuth. It’ll take some effort from the Heat to repeat those heroics again.
Keep an eye on…
Brisbane’s batting: Brisbane Heat have picked up their late order batting in the last few games and have looked adept at chasing. Their middle to lower middle-order has helped them stay in the game and it’s something the Sixers might want to counter with wicket-taking bowlers in the middle overs.
Josh Philippe: Silencing Josh Philippe will be quite a task for the Heat. The Sixers opener is in ridiculously good form and has recent record against Heat also going his way. The Australian wicket-keeper batsman will be touted to go big on Sunday.
TIP: Chris Lynn is the highest run-scorer in BBL history and has odds of 7.00 to win the Player of the Match award.
