Melbourne Renegades vs Hobart Hurricanes – BBL Match Preview – Betting Tips, Latest Odds, Team News and Predictions – 21/01/2020
This is a clash between the BBL’s bottom two sides. Both will be looking to pick up much-needed points and salvage some pride as the season prepares to hit top gear.
Inconsistency has hit the Renegades this term and they have only been able to bag two wins all season.
However, those wins have come from their last two games and they head into this one in much better form.
Their previous game against Brisbane Heat saw them put in a much more positive showing. They will be looking to build on that against a side just three points above.
Hobart have suffered a similar season to Renegades and head into this one on the back of a 10-run loss against Adelaide.

Melbourne Renegades vs Hobart Hurricanes – Betting Tips and Prediction
Melbourne Renegades look to have finally clicked as a side over the last few outings and it’s hard to look past them to make it three wins on the bounce.
Harper to take the fight to the Hurricanes
Sam Harper has been in decent form of late and can be his team’s top run-scorer against Hobart.
He hit a sublime half-century against Sydney Thunder last week and backed that up with 21 during the victory over the Heat.
With Shaun Marsh heading the betting at 2.88 (15/8) it means there could be value to be had elsewhere.
Harper is available at 4.75 (15/4) with Betway to bad the most runs at Marvel Stadium.
Boyce to continue fine form with the ball
Cameron Boyce cause havoc against Brisbane to take four wickets for just 15 runs.
He will be keen to follow up that showing in front of his home fans and looks a good selection to be Melbourne’s top wicket-taker.
He is available at 4.33 (10/3) with Betway to be his team’s top bowler.
Best Bet: Sam Harper to be top scorer for the Melbourne Renegades at 4.33 (10/3) with Betway
