Wellington Firebirds Vs Otago Volts Prediction 24/1/21
After defeat in their last match, Wellington Firebirds will be looking to bounce back immediately with a win.
Prior to the defeat to Canterbury Kings in Match 17, the Firebirds had won their opening five matches.
Wellington will be without Kiwi international Jimmy Neesham who injured his finger against Canterbury.
The Volts have a decent looking side on paper. And it’s a similar situation to yesterday’s match involving Auckland Aces – where you know at some point these players will perform and win, it’s just hard knowing when that performance will be.
I am tempted to go with the Volts, but I’ve made the mistake of backing against the Firebirds a couple of times already this season.
