The Adelaide Strikers, on the other hand, have won just a single match so far and are clearly the weakest team this season.
No surprise then that the cricket betting sites are all favoring the Hobart Hurricanes.

ADELAIDE STRIKERS VS HOBART HURRICANES TEAM PREVIEWS
The Adelaide Strikers have just not been able to make an impact this season and that has largely to do with its ineffective batting. The batting lineup is quite severely underpowered and has been unable to set or chase down any sort of respectable totals. Just four fifties total have been scored by the Adelaide Strikers this season and we think betting against anyone from their team getting to a fifty-plus total in this match is a good strategy as well. We don’t have much faith in the Adelaide Strikers batting lineup at the moment and would rather profit from betting against its batsmen at all possible opportunities.
The bowling lineup has done quite well, especially considering the lack of support it has got from the batsmen. Rashid Khan has the most wickets to his name, 11, same as Peter Siddle. Wes Agar has also been quite effective in most matches that he has played. Betting on both Siddle and Agar to get a wicket (available as a BetYourWay market on Betway) is a good option to consider.
The Hobart Hurricanes have done quite well but they too would agree that inconsistency has been their biggest letdown this season. On paper, the batting is very strong and full of power but sometimes it has failed to live up to expectations. It is still much stronger than the Adelaide Strikers, though. Ben McDermott has scored two centuries this season and smashed 21 sixes! He is in great form but he is not the only one. Matthew Wade, Darcy Short, Tim David, and even Caleb Jewel have all made some very important contributions.
The one thing that stands out is the ability to hit sixes throughout the lineup. Bet on the Hobart Hurricanes to hit the most sixes in this match. We think that could be one of the best options for this match.
Rogers, Ellis, Meredith, and Lamichhane have all been in good form picking wickets. The bowling attack for the Hurricanes is not the strongest, however, it does have some good variation and specialists to bowl at different times of the inning. We back them to do well against a struggling Adelaide Strikers lineup.
ADELAIDE STRIKERS VS HOBART HURRICANES TOSS PREDICTION
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. There have been three matches played at the Adelaide Oval in BBL 2021-22 and all of them have been won by the team that has batted first.
PITCH AND CONDITIONS
The weather in Adelaide is expected to be excellent for cricket. Bright and sunny with no rain around. The pitch is normally very good for the batsmen. There are also a lot of sixes hit in most matches. We tend to favor the ‘Over’ in Over/Under being markets for Total Sixes, Total Fours, or even Total Runs but with the Adelaide Strikers in poor batting form, you should exercise a bit of caution.

HUR’s Ben McDermott has made quite an impact this season. The 27-year-old is currently the highest run-scorer of the tournament with 353 runs in a mere six innings. Given that he is batting at an average of more than 70, it comes as no surprise that he’s accumulated the most fantasy points (547) among all the players involved in the upcoming match between the teams.
TOP TIP: BEST BOWLER
HUR bowler Tom Rogers has picked 14 wickets in seven matches – the second-most by any bowler this season – while maintaining an economy of just 7.03. As a result, the 27-year-old has accrued 514 points and is the most picked bowler for this contest, making him a safe choice to go with in this contest.
TOP TIP: BEST ALL-ROUNDER AND WICKET-KEEPER
With 416 points in eight outings, HUR’s D’Arcy Short is the best pick for an all-rounder. The 31-year-old has made it to the Team in five of his eight appearances this season and has occasionally proved to be quite a coup for TEAM players.
For a wicket-keeper, Matthew Wade of HUR should be considered ahead of STR’s Harry Nielsen given the fact that the former has been slightly more consistent with the bat. As a result of this, Wade has accumulated 314 points while making it to the Team on three occasions this campaign.
MATCH PREDICTION: HOBART HURRICANES TO WIN THE MATCH.
