Big Bash League Stars

The Big Bash League (BBL05) continues to enthral audiences as BBL Round 4 fixtures will ring in the New Year. The teams are ready to continue their quest for knock-out berths and this alone should make these matches worth watching, so make sure to read on as we offer our Big Bash Round 4 Betting Tips!

Dec 30, 7:10 PM local: Melbourne Renegades vs Perth Scorchers, Etihad Stadium

Two teams with quite similar starts to the season will kick off Round 4. Renegades have a star studded line-up which gave them the required impetus in the last round. The presence of Aaron Finch and Chris Gayle is slowly coming to life, as are the all-round skills of Dwayne Bravo. Watch out for another explosion from this side.

The double-defending champions the Scorchers also came to life in the last match with a convincing win over Heat. Michael Klinger shrugged off the absence of international stars by lifting his own performance, and he’ll be thankful for the return of Shaun Marsh for this match. David Willey continues to be frugal with the ball and is proving to be a key player. But, will he be able to keep the Renegades at bay?

Verdict: Renegades look primed to win this match – $1.90 at Sportsbet (money back if they score 160 runs and lose)

Dec 31, 6:40 PM local: Adelaide Strikers vs Sydney Sixers at Adelaide Oval

Strikers started the season brightly with a couple of wins but their momentum was halted by Thunder in the last match. The performance of Brad Hodge and the surprise form of youngster Alex Ross is shaping their surge. Can they pull their campaign back on track?

Sixers had an up and down campaign so far with two wins sandwiched by twin losses. Michael Lumb and Brad Haddin are very crucial at the top of the order but more important is the all-rounds skills of their captain Moises Henriques who went down witha season-ending calf injury. Can they cover his loss?

Verdict: The absence of Henriques will be a big blow for the Sixers. Back Strikers – $1.62 at Sportsbet (money back if they score 160 runs and lose)

Jan 1, 7:10 PM local: Hobart Hurricanes vs Sydney Thunder at Blundstone Arena

Hurricanes have a 2-1 record following back-to-back wins against the Heat. Was it a soft kill? It is vital for them that Kumar Sangakkara fires at the top of the order. Along with his runs, the Hurricanes would love to see Dan Christian continue his all-round impact.

The Thunder are the in-form team of this season with a hat-trick of wins starting their campaign. The wise heads of Michael Hussey and Jacques Kallis are complemented by the explosive skills of Andre Russell. Can they continue their march to the knockouts?

Verdict: Thunder should get it done – $1.70 at Sportsbet (money back if they score 160 runs and lose)

Jan 2, 6:10 PM local: Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades at the MCG

The star studded lineup of the Stars will try to continue their momentum in this Melbourne derby. The return of Kevin Pietersen after the birth of his child could boost the home team. Will they be able to stitch a run from here and prove their all-star worth?

Renegades have the most explosive line-up of this year BBL and will come into the game after their Scorchers match on 30th December. Much will depend on Chris Gayle who seems to enjoy whacking the balls out of the park. Will he defuse the Stars at the MCG?

Verdict: Derbies are not easy to predict, but we favour the Renegades – $2.00 at Sportsbet (money back if they score 160 runs and lose)
