Renegades v Strikers betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 29 Preview
Welcome to our Melbourne Renegades v Adelaide Strikers betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 29 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Adelaide Oval on Tuesday, January 5.
This is the first time the teams have played each other this season and the Renegades will go in as massive outsiders after slumping to another dismal defeat against the Perth Scorchers.
Aaron Finch’s Renegades have three times been bowled out for under 100 this season and are shaping as one of the worst teams in BBL history.
To add insult to injury, their best batsman this season Shaun Marsh will miss the next few games as he has stayed in Perth for the birth of his first child, while import Rilee Rossouw (hamstring) is also out for an extended period.
Renegades coach Michael Klinger will pin his faith in youth to try to turn around a dismal season that has yielded just one win before six consecutive losses.
Meanwhile, the Strikers are sitting mid table but have lost their past two matches against the Scorchers and Sixers. They can’t afford too many more slip-ups and certainly can’t afford to lose to the struggling Renegades at home.
Read on for our free Renegades v Strikers tips ahead of their T20 clash in Adelaide on Tuesday, January 5.

Renegades v Strikers betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Renegades v Strikers tips for Tuesday night’s BBL clash.
Aaron Finch to top-score for Renegades
It’s only $3 for this option but Finch is light years ahead of his teammates in terms of batting quality and experience. He has a lot of weight on his shoulders without Marsh there to lend a hand but he is one of the world’s premier limited-overs batsmen. Finch should lead from the front.
Rashid Khan man of the match
The Afghanistan ace has been running into some ominous form after an injury scare and he will prove a real handful as always. He is due to depart the BBL soon to lead his country against Ireland in the UAE. He will want to leave with some good form under his belt for his long-time BBL franchise. Unibet is offering a generous $11 about this outcome.
Renegades v Strikers prediction 5/1/2021
We want to see a good contest but I fear the best we can hope for here is a glimpse into the future for the Melbourne team, who have been abysmal of late. Paceman Kane Richardson can hold his head high as he has led the bowling attack with aplomb, while Peter Hatzoglou has impressed at times with his energetic leg spin. But the batting has let the Renegades down badly. The Strikers have too much at stake to be complacent. Our final Renegades v Strikers prediction: Strikers to win comfortably.
