Big Bash League Betting
Since the origination of the BBL tournament in 2011, this Twenty20 Cricket tournament features eight teams from cities across Australia, including; Adelaide Strikers, Brisbane Heat, Sydney Thunder, Sydney Sixers, Melbourne Stars, Melbourne Renegades, Hobart Hurricanes and Perth Scorchers.
When it comes to the playing format, each team will match up against the other twice over the course of the tournament, deciding who will make it through to the finals. Those that qualify for the finals will take part in a series of knockout matches consisting of; Eliminators, Qualifiers, Knock-Outs and Challengers.
Eliminators - The Eliminator round is where fourth place matches against fifth.
Qualifiers - Here, first place will play against second to determine which team will make it to the final.
Knock-Out - For the Knock-Out round, third place will match up against the winner of the Eliminator.
Challenger - The winner of the Knock-Out will be matched up against the loser of the Qualifier to decide which other team will feature in the final.
Final - Bringing the tournament to a close, the penultimate final will consist of the Winner from the Challenger and the Winner of the Qualifier. These two teams will go head-to-head for the BBL title.
Of the eight teams that participate in the BBL, six have been successful in obtaining the title; however, the competition has only been running since 2011, which shows how competitive it can be. The finals format also provides a good chance for teams placing further down the table to qualify for the grand final.
