The Big Bash League will soon return for another exciting season of Australian Twenty20 cricket. This time around, our 2020 Big Bash League betting predictions currently foresee a win for the Hobart Hurricanes. However, this won’t sit well with defending champions Melbourne Renegades who are also top contenders for the 2020 Big Bash League title.
Founded in 2011, the Big Bash League is an Australian Twenty20 cricket league which currently features 8 competing clubs. The upcoming 2019-20 season will run from 17 December 2019 to 8 February 2020. Currently, the Hobart Hurricanes top our 2020 Big Bash League betting predictions with favorable odds of winning. Let’s see how their winning chances stand against some of the other Big Bash League competitors on Bet365 Sportsbook:
- Hobart Hurricanes 5.50
- Melbourne Renegades 6.50
- Sydney Sixers 7.50
- Sydney Thunder 9.00
Hobart Hurricanes likely to claim title according to our 2020 Big Bash League betting predictions
Currently, the Hobart Hurricanes lead the 2020 Big Bash League title race with favorable Bet365 Sportsbook odds at 5.50. Unfortunately, Hobart Hurricanes have never claimed Big Bash League title win. However, the club achieved 4 appearances in the Semifinals and 2 appearances in the Finals. Additionally, the club has a good chance to make improvements this season after crashing out in the 2018-19 Semifinals.
Their players to keep an eye on this season are all-rounder D’Arcy Short, wicketkeeper Matthew Wade, and allrounder James Faulkner.
Melbourne Renegades look to successfully defend their 2018-2019 Big Bash title
Last season’s champions the Melbourne Renegades are currently 2nd favorites to win the 2020 Big Bash League on Bet365 Sportsbook. Fortunately, our 2020 Big Bash League betting predictions say the Renegades can retain their title with odds at 6.50. According to the online news in Australia, a key player from their 2019 season has confirmed his return to the club.
This is bowler Harry Gurney who will once again feature for the Renegades after playing for the IPL and PSL.
Sydney Sixers unlikely to add to their Big Bash League trophy cabinet this season
Unfortunately, after having claimed the inaugural 2011-12 Big Bash League season win, things have not been the same for the Sixers. Despite having achieved 2 Finals appearances since then, the Sydney Sixers haven’t been able to lift the BBL trophy. Consequently, our 2020 Big Bash League betting predictions don’t foresee a win for the Sixers with odds at 7.50.
However, having achieved a Semifinals appearance last year, the Bet365 Sportsbook could potentially achieve the same this season.
Sydney Thunder unlikely to claim the 2020 Big Bash League title win
Currently, Syndey Thunder has the worst odds on Bet365 Sportsbook of winning the 2020 Big Bash League. Consequently, our early 2020 Big Bash League betting predictions label Sydney Thunder as a risky bet with odds at 9.00. Despite winning the 2015-16 Big Bash League, their overall record is one of the worst in the BBL.
They’ve failed to advance to the Semifinals often finding themselves finishing at the bottom of the Points Table. Having finished 6th last season, it will be crucial for Sydney Thunder to make some significant improvements this season.
