Perth Scorchers v Melbourne Renegades Betting Preview and Tips

Can the Scorchers do the double over the Renegades when they face off tonight at the Furnace?

Sun, 7 Jan, 9:51 AM

Head to Head

The Hurricanes have won two consecutive games, scoring 180+ runs in each fixture. The Sixers on the other hand are having a season to forget, losing their last five in succession. However, this may be the match the Sydney side turn things around given they have beaten the Tasmanian unit in three of their last four meetings and have recorded two victories from three games at Bellerive. If you are willing to take a leap of faith on the men in pink you’ll enjoy very juicy $2.40 odds.


Key Stat: Over 300 runs have been scored in four of the last five games between the pair

High Bat

Brad Hodge has racked up 276 runs in nine matches against the Scorchers at an average of 55.20. Although the former Striker hasn’t had a great deal of time at the crease this season, he may be required here given the potential impact Johnson and Tye can have on a top order. For the home side, we’re once again tipping Michael Klinger to top the scoring for Perth. In his last match at this venue the evergreen right-hand bat scored a 61-ball 83.


Key Stat: In four matches against the Renegades for the Scorchers, Michael Klinger has scored 304 runs and averages over 150.
