MLS vs BH Match & Dream 11 Prediction, Betting Tips, Playing 11, Pitch Report and Analysis - Jan 16, 2022

MLS vs BH Prediction - Jan 16, 2022

The Melbourne Stars were defeated quite comprehensively by the Adelaide Strikers and it absolutely must win its two remaining matches to try and make it to the BBL 2021-22 playoffs. Up next is the Brisbane Heat, a team whose entire season has been ruined by a COVID outbreak in the camp. A number of players are returning for Brisbane Heat for this match but with just three wins from eleven matches, its chances of qualifying for the playoffs are all but over.

The cricket betting sites have given pretty similar odds to both teams and they clearly expect a close match.

Match prediction and cricket betting tips for Melbourne Stars vs Brisbane Heat BBL 2021-22. The match is going to be played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on the 16th of January 2022.

MLS vs BH Team Previews

Melbourne Stars

The Melbourne Stars are almost back to full-strength with Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Joe Burns, and Adam Zampa all playing the previous match. Unfortunately for them, it was not enough to avoid defeat and leaves the Stars with a tough ask in their remaining two matches.

Joe Clarke and Hilton Cartwright have been batting quite well and certainly add a lot of depth to the batting lineup. It is tough for the Stars to keep adjusting with different players available for different matches but there is no doubt that it does have the talent on paper. We don't think you should judge it too harshly after one poor performance.

Adam Zampa and Glenn Maxwell are going to lead the bowling attack while Brody Couch, Sam Rainbird, and possibly Nathan Coulter-Nile are going to all be the seamers in the lineup. Marcus Stoinis did not bowl in his first match back but he too can chip in if needed.

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat played a couple of matches with a largely inexperienced team that tried its best but was unable to pull off an upset. It should have almost its entire first-choice team back for this match and be able to put up a much stronger fight. Fakhar Zaman, Chris Lynn, Jimmy Pierson, Max Bryant, Ben Duckett, and James Bazley are all going to be available for selection.

Heat will also welcome back Michael Neser and Mitch Swepson for this match, both of whom will strengthen the bowling attack and lengthen the batting lineup.

Brisbane Heat was just beginning to gain some momentum when it got struck by the COVID outbreak and it is a bit unfair to expect it to jump back at the same level once more. We do think, though, that this is a team that can quite easily match or even overpower the Melbourne Stars.

It has the power in the batting and now its bowling lineup is probably at its strongest as well.

MLS vs BH Toss Prediction

The team that wins the toss is going to want to bat first.

Pitch and Conditions

The conditions in Melbourne are expected to be quite good for cricket and no rain has been forecast for match day. The pitch is going to be flat with a nice amount of pace in it. The relaid surface of the MCG has lived up to the promise and been much better to play on this season. The par score batting first should be something around 150-160.

MLS vs BH Betting Tips

We are going to bet on Brisbane Heat to win this match. The Melbourne Stars just do not seem like a settled side at the moment and while they have a lot of very big names in their lineup, we don't think they are in the kind of form where paying a premium for them makes sense. Chase the odds.

    Ben Ducket Total Runs

    Over 21.5 (1.83)


Ben Duckett was having his best BBL before he had to miss a few games due to COVID. We think he is going to be able to pick off where he left off and score runs once more.

    To Hit a Six

    Hilton Cartwright (2.10)


Cartwright smashed four sixes in his previous match and has been scoring runs quite consistently for the Melbourne Stars. To get better than 2x odds on him for this match is too good to pass on.
