BBL 10 Preview: Exchange Trading Insights

The Big Bash and its markets on the Exchange are some of the most dynamic on Betfair, which also means they present plenty of opportunities for Backers and Layers.

Ahead of BBL 10, check out our Exchange Insights from BBL 09 to help you get prepared for the avalanche of T20 cricket coming your way.

BBL 09 Exchange Insights

From the 61 matches scheduled for BBL 09, there were 2 matches with no result and one Match Odds market was voided due to a Tie on runs after 20 overs. The following stats are taken from the remaining 58 settled Match Odds markets:

  • In 51/58 matches, both teams traded as the favourite at some point during the game on the Betfair Exchange.
  • The favourite changed on average six times per game (based on minute Weighted Average Price)
  • An average of $71 million traded per game on the Betfair Exchange

BBL Games provide trading opportunities like no other and that’s represented in 88% of games last season having both teams trade as the market favourite.

In the table below, you can see the games where five teams traded at big odds to win their games:

Date Matchup Winner Max Price
2020-01-18 Brisbane Heat v Melbourne Renegades Melbourne Renegades $130.00
2020-01-20 Melbourne Renegades v Hobart Hurricanes Hobart Hurricanes $28.00

Outright Market

Above, you’ll find the outright market for BBL 10. In BBL 09, there were plenty of opportunities to trade the outright market. Check out the table on traded prices for teams last season:

Team Min Price  Max Price
Perth Scorchers $6.80  $600.00
Adelaide Strikers $3.05  $1,000.00
Brisbane Heat $4.40  $1,000.00
Sydney Thunder $4.10  $1,000.00
Melbourne Stars $2.00  $300.00
Melbourne Renegades $5.80  $1,000.00
Hobart Hurricanes $5.00  $960.00
Sydney Sixers $1.01  $14.00

Outright winners of BBL 09, the Sydney Sixers, traded at a high of $14 to win it all. On the flip side, every team except the Perth Scorchers traded below $6. The outright market is a great place to trade if you think you have an edge on the market. Think a team is going better than they really are? Lay them. Or think a team has had a slow start and will bounce back? Back them.
