MLR vs MLS Betting Tips

  • Sam Harper has hit scores of 89 and 63 from his last two innings and is in excellent form. The keeper-batter is well worth backing as Melbourne Renegades’ highest run scorer against Melbourne Stars. Tom Rogers is the joint top wicket taker in the tournament and is our pick for Melbourne Renegades’ top wicket taker on Saturday evening.
  • Joe Clarke is the fourth highest run scorer in BBL12 and Stars’ keeper-batter is our tip for their highest run scorer in this derby fixture. Nathan Coulter-Nile has combined figures of 5-39 from his last two matches and we expect the pace bowler to be Melbourne Stars’ top wicket taker in this match.
  • With his current form, we recommend backing Sam Harper to score over 18.5 runs in this clash.

Melbourne Renegades are favorites to win

REN vs STA T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips, BBL 2023

Saturday evening brings a Melbourne derby as the Renegades take on the Stars at the Docklands Stadium in Match 41 of the 2022-23 Big Bash League. The Renegades come into this match in fifth place with 10 points from 10 games. The Stars are four points behind from the same number of fixtures. Read on as we preview this match. The game gets underway in Melbourne at 19:00 local time.

Melbourne Renegades dropped to fifth place after their defeat on Tuesday but are still level on points with the team in third. They have enjoyed a strong season and have form players with bat and ball who can win this game for them.

Melbourne Stars win over Adelaide Strikers was as impressive as it was unexpected. They will need to perform at a similarly high level in this derby if they are to prevent the Renegades doing the double over them.

Melbourne Renegades Team News & Playing 11

REN Team News

There are no new injuries for Melbourne Renegades who do not have any returning Test players to their team. Although they were beaten by Adelaide Strikers in the last game, they still posted 182-6 and we expect the same XI to be selected.

REN Key Players

  • Sam Harper - The 26 year old keeper-batter has been very tidy behind the stumps throughout this tournament. He is targeting his third successive half-century in BBL12 in this match. 
  • Aaron Finch - The stand-in skipper has seen his form drop off in recent matches but he is still the leading run scorer in the competition. He is a veteran of Melbourne derbies and will deal with the pressure of the game.
  • Tom Rogers - Although the 28 year old bowling all-rounder went wicketless against Adelaide Strikers he has been in exceptional form. He took 5-16 in the last game against the Stars.

REN Team Form

Melbourne Renegades lost their last match but had won their previous two games against Hobart Hurricanes and Melbouten Stars.

Melbourne Stars Team News & Playing 11

STA Team News

With Marcus Stoinis ruled out with a hamstring injury, the win over Adelaide Strikers was even more impressive on Thursday. The bowling attack, which, with the exception of Luke Wood, has underperformed all season, were exceptional against the Strikers.

STA Key Players

  • Joe Clarke - The English keeper-batter has scored 283 runs across the BBL 2022-23. He doesn’t have a high strike-rate compared to other high scorers but consistently makes good starts at the top of the order.
  • Thomas Rogers - The 23 year old left-handed opener scored 51 not out from 49 balls against Adelaide Strikers. He hit three fours and one six in the innings.
  • Nathan Coulter-Nile - the right arm fast bowler took 3-17 in the last game and picked up all three of the wickets during the middle part of the innings. He has an excellent range of slower ball variations.

STA Team Form

Melbourne Stars ended a run of three successive defeats with their convincing nine wicket win, with 33 balls remaining, in Match 38.

Who will win Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars T20 Match?

Both teams would think they have more potential than they have shown across this season but it is the batting line-up of Melbourne Renegades which looks to have the most runs in it ahead of this match.

MLR vs MLS Top Team Batsmen

Sam Harper, Aaron Finch and Martin Guptill are our batting tips for Melbourne Renegades. Finch and Guptill share the top odds but it is Harper who comes into this match in the strongest form. Guptill has had plenty of good starts and will want to kick on to 40 and beyond in this match.

We recommend Joe Clarke, Thomas Rogers and Hilton Cartwright with the bat for Melbourne Stars. Clarke has been consistent all season and is the favourite with the bookies to make the highest score for his side. Rogers has scored 99 runs across his last two innings in Melbourne.

MLR vs MLS Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Tom Rogers, Kane Richardson and Ruwantha Kellepotha with the ball for Melbourne Renegades. Only Andrew Tye has as many wickets as Rogers in the competition and the bookies expect Rogers to dismiss some more batters in this game. Kellepotha took two wickets in his first BBL appearance on Tuesday.

Nathan Coulter-Nile, Liam Hatcher and Luke Wood are our bowling recommendations for Melbourne Stars. Hatcher took the Player of the Match Award in the last game and has seven wickets from his last three games. Wood has 16 wickets in the tournament, one dismissal away from the top spot.
