Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Stars – Betting Tips and Prediction
It is hard to look beyond Melbourne Stars for this one after they quickly got into stride in their opening two matches.
Perth will have to improve in all departments to match them.
Melbourne’s short price isn’t appealing from a betting perspective so looking at other markets is the way to go.
Back Stoinis to Blast a Six
Big-hitting Marcus Stoinis looks to be back on form after his half-century against the Thunder.
These smaller boundaries and the quicker track will suit him in this game and backing him to hit more than 0.5 sixes is priced at 1.67 with 22Bet.
He hit two in his last innings and looks primed for more in this one.
Maxwell to Get Over 37.5 Performance Points
Glenn Maxwell batted higher up the order in the last game and has already been in the runs in the first two fixtures.
He hit 46 against the Heat and 39 against the Thunder.
Backing him to get over 37.5 player performance points looks an interesting bet, especially given he could well bowl at some stage too.
Remember, he gets one point for every run, 20 for every wicket and 10 for a catch in the field.
He is priced at 1.67 with bet365 to reach that target.
Stars to Hit the Most Sixes in the Match
As we have already touched on, this pitch has more pace and bounce. The dimensions of the ground are also smaller than many others in the BBL.
It all means that we should see quite a few sixes in this contest.
With Stoinis, Ben Dunk and Glenn Maxwell in the side, picking the Stars to hit the most sixes in the match looks a great bet at 1.9 with 22Bet.
