Melbourne Stars v Perth Scorchers – Betting Tips and Prediction
This looks like it could be another close BBL contest between two strong units.
Perth are flying high after a fine run of form and will be targeting another big scalp and more momentum to carry into the play-offs.
Melbourne need more points to secure their place in the next phase and this will be seen as vital to their chances.
Given how close this clash could be, finding value in other markets looks the best play.
Back Munro for More Runs
Colin Munro has been in the runs recently and his strength can help him force the ball away on a slowing pitch.
Jason Roy heads the top Perth batsman market but that gives some extra value for those siding with Munro.
The New Zealander smashed back-to-back half-centuries recently and 82 against Brisbane. He failed to fire in the last match but can be back in the runs here.
He is priced at 4.0 with 22Bet to be his team’s top run-scorer.
Zampa to Shine at the MCG
Adam Zampa has been really impressive this BBL and has certainly enjoyed his time back at the MCG.
He has 18 in 10 matches this season and can add to that tally in this contest. The leg-spinner bagged a five-for here three games ago and added another against the Renegades after that.
His price of 3.24 with 22Bet to be Melbourne’s top wicket-taker looks a great bet.
Perth to Have Highest Opening Partnership
Jason Roy and Liam Livingstone have been solid at the top of the Perth order recently and given their side the solid foundation for success.
For the Stars, Marcus Stoinis is a big danger but Andre Fletcher has struggled for consistency at times.
Backing Perth to have the highest opening partnership looks a good pick at 1.85 with 22Bet.
