Melbourne Renegades look to end five-match losing streak
Perth Scorchers haven’t had the best of starts this season. In five games, they have one win, three losses and one no-result. In fact, two out of those three losses have been big defeats for the Mitchell Marsh-led side. However, after four winless games, including the no-result against Melbourne Renegades, the Scorchers finally got on board with a comfortable win over the Adelaide Strikers. They have the odds placed at 1.55 of winning this game.
On the other hand, Melbourne Renegades had a good start to this BBL 10 as they beat Perth Scorchers convincingly. However, since then, it’s been a slide. They have lost five games in a row and like last season, they are once again at the bottom of the points table. Hence, they are the underdogs in this game and have the winning odds of 2.20
Overall record favours the Scorchers
The overall head to head record is largely in favour of the Perth Scorchers. In the 13 games that Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades have faced each other, Perth Scorchers have won 10 games. In fact, it was only in the 2018-19 season that the Melbourne Renegades broke the jinx and recorded their first win over the Perth Scorchers.
RECOMMENDED BET: Perth Scorchers shrugged off their winless streak and got their first win of the tournament and will be looking to build some momentum. As such, they have the odds of 1.55 to beat the Melbourne Renegades
Earlier this year, Melbourne Renegades faced Perth Scorchers to start the season for the respective teams. Melbourne Renegades recorded a commanding win which was just their third over the Perth Scorchers.
Keep an eye on…
Jhye Richardson: The Western Australian fast bowler has flown under the radar a touch in the recent past. Jhye Richardson has picked up nine wickets in five games and has a very good economy rate of 6.38 this season. Moreover, in the five games that he has played, he has gone wicketless just once.
Shaun Marsh: The left-handed opening batsman has been the best player for the Melbourne Renegades so far in this tournament. Shaun Marsh has accumulated 233 runs and has three fifties in six innings. The onus will once again be on him to get the big scores.
TIP: Jason Roy is batting really well at the moment and has had a solid start to his BBL career. He has odds of 8.00 to be the Player of the Match.
