Renegades v Stars betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 45 Preview
Welcome to our Melbourne Renegades v Melbourne Stars betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 45 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Marvel Stadium on Wednesday, January 20.
This is the second Melbourne derby of the season and the Stars will go in again as hot favourites after winning a decent scrap against the Renegades at the MCG on Sunday. The Stars hauled in the Gades’ total of 150 with five balls and six wickets to spare.
There should be little change to the teams for this match though the Stars are sweating on the return of powerful all-rounder Nathan Coulter-Nile. He would be an ideal addition with the finals looming.
The Stars are sitting fourth and a win here would take them to second, while the last-placed Renegades are playing for pride only.

Renegades v Stars betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Renegades v Stars tips for Wednesday night’s BBL clash.
Glenn Maxwell man of the match
It must be nearly time for the enigmatic Maxwell to put on a masterclass. This is only the second match at this ground for the tournament and it will be harder for batting than the MCG but Maxwell could do damage with bat and ball here.
Adam Zampa more than 1.5 wickets
We have had success tipping the classy leggie during this tournament. Zampa is a world-class T20 bowler and if the Stars are to finally break through and win a title he seems certain to be a key figure. Always a threat.
Renegades v Stars prediction 20/1/2021
We’d like to see a good contest and the Renegades should at least provide that. We have given up on tipping Aaron Finch to bounce out of his form slump with a big innings as he again failed at his latest outing, lasting just two balls and missing a straight ball from Maxwell, heaving wildly across the line. He needs to find touch or the calls for him to be dumped from the Australian limited-overs team will grow quickly. Our final Stars v Renegades prediction: Stars to win again.
