These knockout finals are very unpredictable now especially with returning internationals and are just coin tosses. It comes down to which team has players fire on the night:
Carey/Weatherald/Head or Lynn/Labuschagne/Renshaw
then randomly on any given night a bowler is always a chance of taking a matchwinning 4/20 and triggering a collapse.

Brisbane +1 at home but then I think I trust the Strikers batting and bowling attack more which neutralizes that. Lynn is just as likely to go for a <10 as he is to go for 70 off 40 balls, again so unpredictable.

On the overall probabilities, I'd lean towards the Strikers having more answers with bat and ball and thus more chances for one of them to fire.

I think you will see Renshaw plays for Adelaide Strikers now and not Brisbane Heat.

Strikers all in on this opening pair, think they're at risk if they lose one early. They don't bat deep.
