Renegades hope for a turn of fortunes
The Melbourne Renegades have had the worst possible start to a season, losing seven of their eight games and languishing at the bottom of the Big Bash League points table. They made quite a few handy recruits in the off-season, but the returns never showed and the results have been mediocre. Their odds against a strong Adelaide Strikers stand at a miserly 2.35
The Strikers, meanwhile, started the season with a bang, but have lost two of their last three matches. They, however, come into this game with a confidence-boosting 60-run win against the Renegades themselves in their very last fixture. Their odds of beating a rather underpar Renegades stand at 1.47

Overall record favours the Strikers

Since then, the Strikers have won three matches on the trot including the fixture between these two teams this season.
RECOMMENDED BET: Melbourne Renegades are sorely out of form, giving the Strikers odds of 1.47 to beat them
These two sides come into this game having played each other just few days back with the Strikers strolling to a comfortable win. Much will hinge on how well Renegades can bat to keep the Strikers at bay.

Shaun Marsh: The sole shining light for the Melbourne Renegades has been their new recruit in the experienced Shaun Marsh. The former Perth Scorchers opener is the fourth highest run-scorer this season with 247 runs at an average in the mid-30s. Can he take on the Strikers big threat in Rashid Khan?
Adelaide’s bowling: With Rashid Khan, Wes Agar, Harry Conway and Peter Siddle in good form, the Strikers have a brilliant bowling group. Add in the uncanny Danny Briggs, who produced an impressive show last game against the Renegades, and you have a complete bowling attack,
TIP: Rashid Khan has been in top form for the Strikers in the last few games and has odds of 7.00 to win the Player of the Match award.
