It's the Melbourne derby at the Big Bash as the Melbourne Renegades get ready to host the Melbourne Stars. BBL 202-122 has not been very good for either of these two teams and this match is an absolute must-win if they hope to have a shot at making the playoffs.
Coming into this match, the Melbourne Renegades have been struggling with their batting while the Melbourne Stars have had to combat a COVID outbreak in their camp that made most of their first-choice players unavailable.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Melbourne Renegades vs Melbourne Stars BBL 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Docklands Stadium, Melbourne on the 13th of January 2022.
Melbourne Renegades suffered yet another batting failure in their previous match and failed to compete once more. The Renegades have been extremely poor in this aspect of the game and it is difficult to see how they are going to be able to change that overnight. Sure, there are a couple of good players that can be dangerous like Aaron Finch, Shaun Marsh, or even Mackenzie Harvey but neither of them is dependable enough to bet on. The Melbourne Renegades have stuck with the same set of players that have struggled for quite a number of matches now and we have no reason to believe that they will suddenly start performing in a different fashion.
Among the bowlers, Kane Richardson is the one bowler that you can somewhat depend on. he has been taking wickets the most consistently and is almost always up there as one of the best for the Renegades. Still, we think he lacks the support needed to help win matches for the Melbourne Renegades on a consistent basis.
Shaun Marsh, Jake Fraser McGurk, Aaron Finch, Nic Maddinson, Mackenzie Harvey, Sam Harper, Jack Prestwidge, Cameron Boyce, Kane Richardson, Josh Lalor, Zahir Khan.
The Melbourne Stars have named Marcus Stoinis in the squad for this match once more and we expect him to start. However, there has been no confirmation about the same so far and he could end up sitting on the bench once more.
The Melbourne Stars welcomed back Glenn Maxwell to the starting lineup after recovering from COVID in the previous match. They are also likely to have Nathan Coulter-Nile available to them in the playing eleven. This means that the Stars are going to be significantly stronger than the Renegades, at least on paper.
They have more batting depth and their bowling lineup is definitely superior as well.
Beau Webster top-scored with 63 in the previous match, Joe Clarke has been in great form, and Joe Burns also seemed to be in touch in his brief knock. These are good signs for the Melbourne Stars batting lineup as they look to try and make the BBL playoffs.
The bowling lineup for the Melbourne Stars is going to depend on Adam Zampa, Glenn Maxwell, Nathan Coulter-Nile, and possibly Haris Rauf. That is a strong bowling attack and we certainly back it to do well against a struggling Melbourne Renegades lineup.
Glenn Maxwell, Joe Clarke, BJ Webster, Joe Burns, Hilton Cartwright, Nick Larkin, Qais Ahmad, Sam Rainbird, Brody Couch, Adam Zampa, Haris Rauf.
The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first. That has been the more advantageous thing to do at the Docklands Stadium this season.

The conditions in Melbourne have been quite good. A bit of rain is forecast for match day but nothing that should cause a complete washout. The pitch at the Docklands Stadium has been very good for batting this season. Scores of 200 or thereabouts have been reached more than once and it looks like something around 160 or 170 should be considered just par batting first. The surface does slow down a bit in the second half and makes chasing a bit more difficult.

We are going to bet on the Melbourne Stars to win this match. They have been the better team for sure and now with their best players returning, they should be able to win this contest nine times out of ten.
Bet on the Melbourne Stars to win.
We tend to bet against Aaron Finch in most cases and that has turned out to be a pretty profitable strategy. He in patchy form and tends to throw away his wicket trying to be a little too aggressive at the start of the inning.
The odds available to back the Melbourne Stars are very good. The Melbourne renegades are one of the weakest batting units in BBL 2021-22 and they hit far fewer sixes than the Stars. The rate available makes this bet well worth the risk.
