Australia’s Big Bash League is set to get underway and bring weeks of top-class T20 cricket action. We have worked to find some of the best BBL betting tips for the tournament. Check out our predictions below, as well as outright odds and best places to bet.
Outright winner odds are available with Australia’s best bookies. We looked at how bet365, Unibet and Palmerbet all compared in the winner futures market.
The Perth Scorchers are the favourites the lift the trophy this year, closely followed by Sydney Sixers and Adelaide Strikers.
It is always important to back a selection at the best price you can get. For example, as you can see below, if you want to back the Sixers to win BBL 13 then you’d be better off backing them with bet365 compared to Unibet or Palmerbet in this instance.
These odds will change as the tournament progresses, but this is how it stands before the action gets underway.

Here you will find our best bets for BBL 2023/24, also known as BBL 13. We have highlighted the team we think can do well this season, as well as players that could do well in other markets. As ever, we always look to find some value and won’t shy away from highlighting bigger-priced picks. As well as these top tips, read on to see a more in-depth look at the 2023/24 tournament.
BBL 13 gets underway with Perth Scorchers the favourites to defend their title in 2023/24 and become the first side to make it a hat-trick of Big Bash League championship victories.
Perth have added England’s Zak Crawley and Laurie Evans to their ranks in the overseas player draft and the bookies are backing them to make history. However, Sydney Sixers and Adelaide Strikers, who are next in the market, will be keen to push them all the way this time around. Tom Curran and James Vince have bolstered the Sixers, while the Strikers bagged Rashid Khan, Jamie Overton, and Adam Hose in the draft.
Last season’s beaten finalists, Brisbane Heat, used the draft to add Colin Munro, Sam Billings, and Paul Walter to their ranks. They are considered outsiders by the bookies to go one better this time up. Another factor worth considering when betting on the BBL this season is how much of a factor home advantage was last term. Visiting teams only won on 18 occasions from the 55 regular season fixtures.
