Renegades v Thunder betting preview

Welcome to our Melbourne Stars v Melbourne Renegades betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 42 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at the MCG on Sunday, January 17.

This is the first Melbourne derby of BBL10 and there is a yawning gap in terms of performance between the Stars and Renegades this season.

The Stars are sitting in fourth place on the table but can’t afford a slip-up against the bottom-placed Gades if they want to launch a serious title challenge.

The Stars have lost Pakistan paceman Haris Rauf for the rest of the tournament after he was called up for a Test series against South Africa. But they have pace bowling all-rounder Nathan Coulter-Nile ready to resume after injury and he could be swung straight into the action.

This match screams danger though as the Renegades would loving more than the scupper the campaign of their great rivals, who have finished runner-up the past two seasons but have not won a BBL title.

Renegades captain Aaron Finch has already indicated he will return to open the batting instead of coming in at No.4 and will adopt a more aggressive approach as he attempts to overcome a personal form slump.

Stars v Renegades betting tips

Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Stars v Renegades tips for Sunday night’s BBL clash.

Aaron Finch man of the match at $9

We love the fact Finch has been talking tough in the lead-up to this match and he is certainly good enough and experienced enough to take down the Stars attack. The game could well rest on the bats of Finch and his opening partner Shaun Marsh.

Marcus Stoinis top-scorer for Stars

Stoinis is a dominant force in this form of the game. He was strangely out of sorts on Friday against the Strikers but his opening partner Andre Fletcher finally found form with the bat. We will back Stoinis to find peak form against the Gades.


Stars v Renegades prediction 17/1/2021

As we said this is a big danger game for the Stars even though the Renegades have been woeful at times this season. T20 is a funny game in that it a couple of outstanding individual performances can decide a match. We sense an upset brewing. Our final Stars v Renegades prediction: Renegades to cause a shock.
