BBL match 19: Sydney Thunder v Melbourne Stars betting tips, preview
The Renegades were hammered to the tune of 129 runs by the Sydney Thunder in their Boxing Day clash, despite captain Aaron Finch returning to the line-up.
It continues a worrying form slump for the Melbourne-based side, who after winning the BBL two years ago, finished bottom last year and suffered two record defeats this year.
While the T20 format is notoriously fickle when it comes to form reversals, it would take a huge change in fortune for the Renegades to be competitive here.
The Sixers look stronger in both batting and bowling and we strongly recommend including them in your multiples this week.
Read on for our free Renegades v Sixers tips ahead of their T20 clash at the Gold Coast on Tuesday, December 29.

Renegades v Sixers betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Renegades v Sixers tips for Tuesday’s BBL clash.
Sam Harper to top-score for the Renegades
Harper top-scored two matches ago for the ‘Gades and is offering better value than skipper Aaron Finch, who topped their runs against the Thunder with 20. Harper will bat at no.3 and is the type of player who will attempt to stick around for a few overs. If Finch fails, Harper is the logical one to anchor the innings. He is paying $6 to top-score with PlayUp Australia. .
Dan Christian man of the match
The veteran all-rounder is almost in career-best form and we’re confident he will give a strong showing in man of the match betting. We like that he stays involved throughout the game and the $11 on offer at Unibet is good enough for us.
Renegades v Sixers prediction 29/12/2020
The Renegades’ exposed form just is not good enough for us to show any respect here and we’re confident that the Sixers will salute and continue their strong form. Josh Philippe and James Vince are two of the more dangerous bats in the BBL, while Christian and Holder are two of the better all-rounders, which gives them depth that the Renegades cannot match. Unless Finch fires this could be another thrashing. Our final Renegades v Sixers prediction? Sixers to win.
