Stars v Sixers betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 56 Preview
Welcome to our Melbourne Stars v Sydney Sixers betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 56 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at the MCG in Melbourne on Tuesday, January 26.
This match is the third in a triple-header on the day and the second at the MCG, with Melbourne Renegades playing Hobart Hurricanes in the preceding match.
It’s important to check the lie of the land before placing a bet on this match. It’s possible that even a win for the Stars won’t be enough to get the into the finals, depending on the earlier results on the day.
The Stars have been a little unlucky this season after stating the tournament high up in bookmakers’ ratings to break through for their first title. But they also have disappointed markedly at times. For a team packed with such classy and experienced players they have underperformed.
If they still have a chance of making the finals, they will be up for this but they are also the sort of team that could produce a wonderful performance when all hope is lost and the pressure is off.

Stars v Sixers betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Stars v Sixers tips for Tuesday night’s BBL clash.
Glenn Maxwell man of the match at $8
Maxwell is an enigma at times but we fully expect him to put on a show at his home ground. There are few more damaging batsmen as Maxwell when he is up and going and he is well overdue for a good one.
Daniel Hughes top score for Sixers
The veteran left-hander has been a little quiet the past few weeks but he is a textbook batsman and can anchor the innings if required, as well as picking up the tempo as needed.
Stars v Sixers prediction 26/1/2021
This is the final match before the finals and features a team which will certainly have a big hand in the finals. The Sixers have been good right throughout and could even get stronger for the finals if they manage to get Mitchell Starc into the line-up. But the Stars are at home and they still have the like of Stoinis, Maxwell and Zampa and we expect them to cause an upset. Our final Stars v Sixers prediction: Stars to win.
