Thunder are unbeaten in the competition but come up against a very strong Hobart team.
Hobart Hurricanes v Sydney Thunder
The Hurricanes have one of the best batting line-ups in the competition, however, they were skittled for just 91 in the first game before smashing 184 and 194 in the last couple of games. They’ve got it all, classy players up top then the fire power of Sammy and Christian at the death. Cameron Boyce has produced the goods for them with the ball, taking five wickets in his three games this season.
Thunder have been somewhat of a surprise package, topping the table after victories against the Sixers, Stars and Strikers. Old boys Hussey and Kallis have led the way with the bat showing age doesn’t matter in the Big Bash. Russell has been one of the stars in this years competition, the West Indian has taken seven wickets in three games. Even though the Thunder are unbeaten, I can’t ignore the $2.1 price for the Hurricanes at home. This game will be high scoring, we feel Hobart have the firepower down the order to chase any total.

Tim Paine Match Peformance - Spread Betting
Sporting Index makes predictions on a number of events and scenarios within a cricket match. The spread has two prices, a buy and a sell price. Our bet for this fixture is Tim Paine, Paine smashed 87 last time in Hobart and will always be in for a catch or a stumping with Boyce in the team. You can buy Paine at 45 points, You can buy points for any stake, but the more each point is worth, the bigger both your liability and potential return.
So, how does Paine get points? The following applies:
- 1 point per run
- 10 points per catch
- 20 points per wicket
- 25 points per stumping
If, for example, he takes three catches and one stumping, and nothing else, you’re in profit if you Buy as he’ll have scored 65 points (more than the 45 point spread). If Paine only scores thirty five runs he would get 35 points, leaving you on -10 points. Therefore if you staked $10 a point you’d lose $100.
But if Paine scores 45 runs and also takes two catches he’d score 65 points, which would result in a profit of $200 from a $10 stake. Hopefully this makes sense, but click through to the Sporting Index website for further information..
