Sixers v Stars betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL Game 15 Preview

Scorchers v Renegades BBL10

Welcome to our Sydney Sixers v Melbourne Stars betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Match 15 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Metricon Stadium, Gold Coast, on Saturday, December 26.

This is a rematch of last season’s grand finalists, with the Sixers of course winning that rain-affected game to deny the Stars their first title.

Melbourne Stars have started the season in great form and are the only team not to have lost so far, though their most recent clash was washed out.

There is little chance of rain on Saturday at the Gold Coast, where Metricon Stadium is utilised for the first time in BBL10. It is generally a high-scoring ground and the team batting first won all three matches at the ground last season.

In early betting the red-hot Stars, who are outright favourites to lift the title with leading international bookies, are rated at $1.73 favourites with the Sixers at $2.10.

The Sixers have also started their title defence in good shape with two wins from their first three games, with their batting superbly led by dashing wicketkeeper-batsman Josh Philippe. Their well-balanced bowling attack has also provided some torrid spells for rivals in the early matches.

Sixers v Stars betting tips

Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Sixers v Stars tips for Saturday’s BBL clash.

Jason Holder man of the match

The West Indies star is with the Sixers for the only a three-match stint but he has show in other brief appearances that as a gun for hire he is real value for money. Holder nearly always brings his A game wherever he is playing and he is a force with bat and ball. We are tipping the Sixers to cause an upset and Holder could be the man to do much of the damage.

Sixers to win at $2.10

The Stars are a high-quality outfit, but then again so are the Sixers, who may have a slightly better bowling line-up this time. We see it as an even money bet so we have to go with the outsiders.

Sixers v Stars prediction 26/12/2020
