Strikers v Renegades betting tips, prediction & odds; BBL match 33 Preview
Welcome to our Adelaide Strikers v Melbourne Renegades betting tips, winner prediction and odds analysis for Game 3 of the 2020-21 Big Bash League at Adelaide Oval on Friday, January 8.
These teams clashed on Tuesday at the same venue, with the Strikers barely breaking a sweat as they consigned the Renegades to a seventh consecutive defeat.
Bookmakers have made the Strikers around $1.50 favourites to win the match and consolidate a spot in the top four, which is an extremely short quote given the unpredictable nature of T20 cricket.
The Renegades will no doubt catch fire in a match soon but are playing at the moment without Shaun Marsh, back in Perth for the birth of his first child, and South African import Rilee Rossouw (hamstring).
Their goose was cooked in their run chase on Tuesday when superstar skipper Aaron Finch was dismissed first ball. It’s hard to see them turning it around though they can play unfettered by the pressure of striving for a finals spot as it would take a miracle for them to get back in the running.

Strikers v Renegades betting tips
Our cricket tipsters have examined the odds and found several Strikers v Renegades tips for Friday night’s BBL clash.
Aaron Finch to top-score for Renegades
We tipped Finch to top score on Tuesday night so we might as well go down swinging after he let us down. We will back up as Finch is a quality player and his team needs him more than ever.
Rashid Khan in Most Wickets (3-way)
Unibet is offering groups with three bowlers and you need to select which of the three players will take the most wickets. We will go for Khan at $2.55 in a group against pacemen Kane Richardson ($2.85) and Peter Siddle ($2.95).
Strikers v Renegades prediction 8/1/2021
We just want to see a close contest but the Renegades are so far off the pace at the moment it’s hard to see that happening unless Finch makes a big one. While we expect Finch to shine on the good Adelaide batting pitch on a clear day, the Strikers have plenty of batting and bowling firepower to deal with whatever the young Renegades can muster Our final Renegades v Strikers prediction: Strikers to make it eight straight losses for the Gades.
