Renegades hope for better results
Melbourne Renegades were one of the strongest teams on paper ahead of BBL 2020/21. With Aaron Finch at the helm and the likes of Rilee Rossouw and Shaun Marsh in the mix, the Renegades were strong enough to be considered title contenders. However, the season hasn’t gone to plan for the franchise. They find themselves at the bottom of the points table with two of their three wins coming in the last four games. The Renegades have odds of 1.90 to win this game against the Heat.
The Brisbane Heat, on the other hand, were expected to struggle this season with the lack of resources at their disposal. However, in a few youngsters, the Heat have found reliable players and they have done reasonably well to escape the wooden spoon so far. This contest, though, could decide where they go from here. Their odds of a win in this game stand at 1.74

Overall record favour the Renegades
Overall record gives Renegades a major edge in their clash against the Brisbane Heat. However, the Renegades lost earlier in the season to the Brisbane Heat. Overall, the Heat have won only four times against the Renegades. Since 2017, the teams have a lopsided record backing the Renegades. They have won 4 and lost 2 of the games between these sides in the Big Bash League.
RECOMMENDED BET: The Renegades have better recent form running into this game and have odds of 1.90 to beat the Heat
The last time these two teams met, the Heat won by five wickets after a late cameo from Joe Burns from no.5. The Renegades, who had a strong grip on the game, lost it in the last few minutes. That result aside, the Renegades have looked better than the Heat this season although it hasn’t shown up in terms of wins.
Keep an eye on…
Kane Richardson: With 15 wickets in 11 matches, Kane Richardson is the highest wicket-taker for the Renegades in the season. The Melbourne Renegades pacer is someone who can take wickets upfront and topple the top-order of the Brisbane Heat and is one to watch out for in this fixture.
TIP: Lynn has made a big impact in the last few games and has odds of 7.50 to win the Player of the Match award.
Chris Lynn: The highest run-scorer in the BBL, Chris Lynn has been destructive in the eight matches he has played, racking up 317 runs at a strike-rate of 149.53. Lynn could once again be used as an X-factor player and be subbed in, especially if the Heat are looking to use him flexibly.
