Big Bash Betting TypesA wide variety of Big Bash betting types are expected to be available upon the commencement of the tournament. Bet types will likely include both pre-match and live betting options. Some of the most popular ways to bet on Big Bash League matches include:
Match BettingMatch betting is the simplest of the Big Bash betting types. It refers to a bet on Big Bash matches in which a bettor picks one team to win over the other. Each Big Bash matchup provides another match betting option.
Outright WinnerOutright winner bets require punters to predict the overall winner of the Big Bash Tournament. The winner is decided by the Big Bash Final at the end of the season. The Big Bash odds for outright winner wagers can change drastically through the tournament based on the performance of teams. Outright bets are the only betting type available before the start of the season.
Tied MatchA Tied match bet on Big Bash League matches gives you the option of wagering on whether the match will end in a draw. A match that ends with level scores at the end of regulation is considered a tie. Although the match may be decided with a ‘Super Over,’ the result for betting purposes will still be a tie. Rained out or abandoned matches will also result in a tie.
Top BatsmenA ‘Top Batsmen’ bet is a prop bet which allows you to wager on which batsmen you think will score the most runs. The bet is available both for a single match and for the tournament as a whole.
Handicap BettingHandicap betting attempts to level out matchups by giving the favourite a handicap. The handicap can be provided two ways:
- the team batting first can win by a certain number of runs
- the team batting second can win by several wickets.
4 Big Bash Tips For 2019/2020As you’d expect, everyone is looking for a betting edge this coming Big Bash season. While there are no certainties, the following Big Bash tips can greatly increase your chance of winning:
In-Play ValueIn-play betting can be very profitable if done correctly and with patience. Since the markets tend to overreact, bettors can often take advantage of inflated odds. Most T20 matches can swing greatly based on the performance of a few players. Often a side can go from a heavy favourite to big dog within a few minutes. If you’re on the ball, you can hedge your bets and come out in the green no matter which team wins.
Research ConditionsConditions of the pitch and atmosphere can play an important role in the outcome of a match. Pitches can be conducive to certain bowling lineups; for instance, a pitch may provide fast bowlers with extra pace and swing. In such a case, the team with the better arsenal of fast bowlers will likely be favoured. Similarly, it’s important to research if a batting lineup tends to play better in certain conditions.
The TossMany matches may hinge on the winner of the toss in the Big Bash. Winning the toss can be a huge advantage, especially if the ground is easier/harder to bat or bowl first on. Some teams may also be considerably better at batting first or chasing down totals. Placing wagers after the toss can mitigate risk and play towards the strengths or weaknesses of a team.
Form Of Players/TeamsArguably the most important of the Big Bash tips is taking into account the form of players and teams. Any Big Bash prediction should consider the past performances of players against certain teams and their current form. Teams and players with momentum tend to play with confidence which generally leads to better performances. Before betting on any matchup be sure to check the past scores and bowling figures of top batsmen/bowlers.
