Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Renegades Betting Tips 13/12/2021

Teams Status

Brisbane Heat

Brisbane Heat remain the only side in the competition without a win or a point to their name. They started their campaign with a one-sided defeat to Sydney Thunder when a majority of their batters failed, with the exception of Ben Duckett and Sam Heazlett.

In the next game, a balanced bowling effort saw them restrict Perth Scorchers to 157 but the mess that is Brisbane’s batting once again failed to do what was required of them. Chris Lynn’s painstakingly and uncharacteristically slow 27 off 33 did the team no favours, just as the failure of four of their top six batters didn’t.

Even then the game could have been had as it came down to the Heat needing 20 off 12 balls. But then Andrew Tye’s excellent 19th oversaw Xavier Bartlett score just three runs and that left them a mountain to climb off the final six deliveries, which they couldn’t.

The batting is the main area where much and fast improvement is needed if the Heat are to shake off their poor start.

Melbourne Renegades

Melbourne Renegades have so far played two matches in the ongoing Big Bash League but against the same side: Adelaide Strikers.

In the first encounter, they beat the Strikers by a slim margin of two runs before being brushed aside in a 49-run defeat two nights later.

It’s clear that this has not been the best of starts as even their win was very close and could have gone either way.

Their bowling unit, which obviously packs a lot of talent and big names, has done pretty well but the batters were completely flat in that last game, with only their top four getting into double figures.

They are certainly missing Aaron Finch and Nic Maddinson, the former of whom has a knee niggle and the latter is away on national duty with Australia A.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Melbourne Renegades to win @ 1.93

Both these sides have their batting frailties but we think that their bowling unit comprising James Pattinson, Kane Richardson Reece Topley, and Zahir Khan has a clear edge. We back the Renegades in this race. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Sam Heazlett to score under 18.5 runs @ 1.87

Sam Heazlett has been in decent form of late, scoring 42 and 34 over the first two matches. He’s a decent batter but in our opinion, he’s done more than he was expected to. It’s time when things even out a little bit, which is why we’re shorting him. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Conclusion

This is a toss-up. Two equally powerful or equally weak teams are up against each other. We’re siding with Melbourne here because of the slim edge they have.
