Brisbane Heat v Melbourne Stars – Betting Tips and Prediction
The Heat have recently benefitted from the addition of Joe Denly, Chris Lynn and Joe Burns to the side.
Melbourne, meanwhile, will be heartened by the recent win and the fact Stoinis and Maxwell look in decent nick.
It looks like we could have a close contest but preference goes to the Stars after putting a three-game winless run behind them.
Liam Hatcher and Adam Zampa both took wickets at this ground last time and Melbourne’s price of 1.675 with 1xBet looks a good bet.
Back Hatcher for Top Stars Bowler
Liam Hatcher is among the wickets this BBL. He has 10 in six matches for the Stars and looks a decent pick in the top team bowler market.
The fact he also bagged 3-33 at this venue against Sydney means he is even more attractive in a market that is headed by Adam Zampa.
Zampa also did well at this venue previously but Hatcher’s price of 4.33 with bet365 is the value play.
Maxwell to Get Over 42.5 Player Performance Points
Glenn Maxwell has really shone with the bat in hand so far. The Stars man showed his form with a sparkling 70 against Hobart recently and can add more to his tally here.
He is Melbourne’s leading run-scorer this season and backing him to get over 42.5 performance points looks a great bet.
Remember, he gets one point for every run, 20 for a wicket and 10 for a catch in the field.
Should his batting not get him to that score, his bowling might just add the extras. He bagged a wicket against Hobart and having that option makes this a good selection.
He is priced a 2.0 to get over 42.5 performance points with bet365.
