While lagging miles behind other sides, Melbourne Renegades have improved their form winning 2 of their past 4 encounters. Brisbane Heat is the bookies' favourite due to their higher position in the standings but they have managed just 1 win in the previous 4 matches.
Value Bets for India Bet
Top Brisbane Heat Batsman - Chris Lynn at 2.70
Chris Lynn is in fine form and he is the top run-getter for his side despite missing a chunk of the season through injury. The Brisbane Heat skipper has 3 fifties in 8 matches and will be eyeing a big knock after missing out in the last couple of games.
Top Melbourne Renegades Bowler - Peter Hatzoglou at 4.00
The emergence of Peter Hatzoglou has been one of the few bright spots in an abysmal campaign for Melbourne Renegades. Playing in his maiden BBL season, Hatzoglou is the joint top wicket-taker of his team with 8 dismissals in the past 4 matches.
Top Brisbane Heat Bowler - Mark Steketee at 3.50
With his 18 wickets placing him among the top-3 bowlers of the BBL, Mark Steketee is the standout bowler for Brisbane Heat this season. Steketee has been consistent right through the campaign and he could bag a couple more in this match.
Safe Bookmaker Bets
Aaron Finch Total Runs - Under 23.5
Aaron Finch is having a remarkably poor season which has mirrored the disastrous form of his team. The Melbourne Renegades captain's slump has aggravated after being dismissed for less than 15 runs in the last 6 outings including a couple of ducks.
Bet on Under 23.5 with 22Bet
Marnus Labuschagne Total Runs - Over 21.5
Marnus Labuschagne has made a quick transition into T20 cricket from Test matches with a solid knock at the top of the order. Marnus could be the lynchpin for the rest of the explosive Brisbane Heat batting-card to provide the damaging blows.
Bet on Over 21.5 with Betway
Sam Harper Total Runs - Over 17.5
Sam Harper is currently the leading-scorer of the Melbourne Renegades batting line-up which has mostly disappointed as a unit. Harper has got 2 fifties to his name in this BBL and has added more than 30 runs in 3 of his previous 5 innings.
