Well, the Big Bash League has always been quite competitive for the past nine seasons. There have always been different winners all the time. So it is quite hard to predict who will be the winner this time. All the teams have the same strength, but who will bag the trophy is quite unpredictable. As it is just the start of the Big Bash Leagues, it is better to keep an eye on the performances of all the six teams and then decide who would be the winner.
Even this year, you would see that Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers are considered among the top favorite teams as they were the finalists of the previous season and won the hearts of crickets fans.
Melbourne Stars is expected to win the BBL season 10 because they have great players like Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell along with big-hitting batting firepower Jonny Bairstow and Nicholas Pooran. According to Bet365 and Betaway, this team has been getting too much support.
Besides this, Sydney Sixers are also among the favorite BBL teams as they are also known for retaining their great players. To add strength to the team, Sydney Sixer is having Dan Christian. Beyond these two top favorite teams, the third one in the league is Sydney Thunders. This team will be having great cricket players like Daniel Sams, Usman Khawaja, Alex Hales. But they still need to put in more effort to stand equal to the Sydney Sixers and Melbourne Stars.
