Melbourne Renegades v Perth Scorchers betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL|10 Preview
Welcome to our Melbourne Renegades v Perth Scorchers betting tips, prediction and odds update, ahead of their Big Bash League season-opener at Blundstone Arena on Saturday night.
The Scorchers have been installed a $1.75 favourite for the clash, while the Renegades are outsiders at $2.08 in the betting. The weather is expected to hold up in Tasmania, where this clash is being played, because of the strict covid-19 protocols put in place for the 2020-21 BBL season.
The Renegades have a drastically different team to last season, with six imports and a bevy of new local faces joining the squad as they attempt to crawl off the bottom of the ladder. But the Heat will only be able to call on South Africa Rilee Roussow and England’s Benny Howell for the opening fixture, with the other still negotiating the tricky quarantine periods
The Scorchers will be without boom imports Luke Livingstone and Jason Roy until their December 28 fixture, which makes the early rounds of this tournament a great time to face the talent-laden Perth outfit. The good news for Scorchers fans is Kiwi all-rounder Colin Munro is available for the entirety of the season. The recruitment of Cameron Gannon from the Heat strengthens their already formidable pace-bowling stocks that includes fit-again Jason Behrendorff, Jhye Richardson and AJ Tye.

Noor Ahmad (Afg), Cameron Boyce, Brody Couch*, Zak Evans, Aaron Finch (c), Jake Fraser-McGurk, Sam Harper, Marcus Harris, Mackenzie Harvey, Peter Hatzoglou*, Jon Holland, Benny Howell (Eng), Josh Lalor, Shaun Marsh, Mohammad Nabi (AFG), James Pattinson, Mitch Perry, Jack Prestwidge, Kane Richardson, Rilee Rossouw (SA), Will Sutherland, Imran Tahir (SA), Imad Wasim (Pak), Beau Webster.

Renegades v Scorchers betting tips
Our Big Bash League expert has scoured the odds and found some value Melbourne Renegades v Perth Scorchers tips:
Aaron Finch to top-score for Melbourne Renegades
The Australian short-form captain is a picture of consistency at the top of the order and looms as a key to his teams chances. Finch really values his wicket even in T20 and rarely gets out playing a bad shot. He’s a serial cash cow for our BBL bets and we’ll stick with him here at $3 to top-score for his team.
AJ Tye most wickets for Perth Scorchers
Tye has long been regarded as one of the top bowlers in the BBL, which was highlighted by his last minute inclusion in the Australian T20 team for their recent 2-1 loss to India. Tye was the pick of the paceman in the last outing, which they won, claiming the key wicket of Virat Kohli in the dying overs to finish with 1-31 from his four overs. His ability to keep the run rate down in the dying overs was sorely missed at Perth last season, because of injuries and we think he can bounce back strongly here. Tye is paying $3.75 to take most wickets.
Renegades v Scorchers prediction 12/12/2020
The Scorchers deserve their favouritism in this clash, but we are bullish on the prospects of the Renegades causing an upset. The Scorchers are lacking a little bit of firepower in their batting line-up, in the absence of Livingstone and Roy, and a fair bit of pressure is on controversial English recruit Joe Clarke at the top of the order. If Renegades skipper Aaron Finch can get his team off a to a flyer against the talented pace attack of the Scorchers we think they can cause an upset in a game that looks a 50-50 proposition in this early stage of the season. Our final Renegades v Scorchers prediction? Melbourne Renegades by 22 runs or four wickets.
