Billericay got the better of Belhus in their Essex League Division One meeting at North Stifford.
Home captain Danny Joyce chose to bat after winning the toss but fell to Adam Marchant for a duck.
Joe Joyce (65) and Roy Heffernan (28) combined well for the second wicket, but Ross Poulton (4-19) and Andy Smith (2-34) made inroads with the ball for Billericay.
Marchant (2-14) returned to end the innings on 183, but the visitors saw Nick Van Lint fall cheaply in reply.
It proved only a minor setback, though, as David Hinnigan and captain Lee Knight shared an unbroken second-wicket stand to see them to victory.
Hinnigan finished unbeaten on 85, while skipper Knight was 66 not out as Billericay reached their target in the 44th over.
A second league victory of the summer, with a third of the season completed, leaves Billericay in sixth place, one point behind Belhus and only two adrift of fourth-placed Woodford Wells.
