Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades Betting Preview and Tips

The Battle of Melbourne makes for an intriguing Saturday night BBL clash!

Fri, 5 Jan, 1:30 PM

Head to Head

The Stars and Renegades meet at the MCG tonight with the latter hopeful of snaring just their 4th win in 12 games against their more illustrious rival. Aaron Finch’s side has been in good form during BBL|07 racking up three wins and a loss, whilst their opponent has had an early season to forget, losing all three of their fixtures thus far. The Renegades start favourite whilst the Stars are at $2+ odds which may tempt a few given the men in green average 165 runs at the G against their neighbour.


Key Stat: The Stars have the worst Net Run Rate in the league (-1.317)

High Bat

Aaron Finch will be hard to back against in this. Cameron White does have claims, but the Renegades’ captain has the highest average (58.29) of any player in all games between the Melbourne sides, and in his 10 derby matches so far has racked up an impressive 408 runs. For the Stars, consider Glenn Maxwell who posted a 50+ score in his last game and will be out to prove a point to the Aussie selectors who left him out of their ODI squad to take on England.


Key Stat: Aaron Finch scored 51 in his last game (vs. Sixers, Jan 3)
