Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Stars Betting Tips

The BBL opened with an absolute nail-batter last night. Can we expect more of the same between the Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Stars this evening?

Tue, 19 Dec, 9:30 PM


Head to Head


A high quality affair is expected when the Heat and Stars get their respective seasons underway tonight at the Gabba. The Brisbane side has won three straight against their southern rival and four of six overall. Despite this record, Melbourne start favourite with the Heat a very tempting proposition at $2 plus odds.


Key stat: Melbourne has only beaten Brisbane once since 2012



High Bat


The bulk of the talk pre-game has focused on Chris Lynn’s return to the fold. In T20 cricket, the explosive right hand bat averages 36.72 at an impressive strike rate of 147.98 whilst in last season’s Big Bash he scored 309 runs in just five games. For the Stars, Glenn Maxwell is heavily supported to top the scoring after a bumper start to the Shield season.


Key stat: Glenn Maxwell has scored 96, 278 and 16 in his last two Sheffield Shield games.


Tip 1: Win Market - Brisbane Heat

Tip 2: High Bat - Glenn Maxwell
