Melbourne Renegades v Melbourne Stars – Betting Tips and Prediction
The Stars will be looking for back-to-back derby wins to take them a step closer to the BBL play-offs.
More batting woes were evident for the Renegades last time out and it is going to be difficult for them to hit back against a Stars team in confident mood.
The Stars’ price to get the outright win isn’t appealing from a betting point of view, so looking at other markets looks the best way to find value.
Back Richardson for Top Bowler
Kane Richardson has been the standout bowler for the Renegades so far.
He now has 15 in 11 matches after bagging another two in the previous meeting between these city rivals.
He hasn’t had much competition from his fellow bowlers this tournament except for Pete Hatzoglou who has 13.
Richardson looks a good bet to be the Renegades’ top bowler and his price of 3.25 with LeoVegas is appealing and offers some value.
Stoinis to Shine for the Stars
Marcus Stoinis might have taken a while to get going in BBL 10, but he is certainly back at his best now.
He has fallen short of a few half-centuries recently but has still looked in impressive form. He hit 43 in the last meeting between these sides and can go bigger here against a bowling attack that looks too lightweight.
Stoinis can be backed at 3.0 with bet365 to be the top run-scorer for the Stars.
Stars to Hit the Most Sixes
We like the look of backing the Melbourne Stars to hit the most sixes in the match.
While the pitch at Docklands is slower than it used to be, there should be plenty of pace and bounce off the surface for the batsman to take advantage of.
With the likes of Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell in their ranks, the Stars look a good bet to win blast the most maximums.
They can be backed at 1.77 with bet365 to do just that.
