Melbourne Stars vs Hobart Hurricanes Betting Tips 19/01/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

Teams Status

Hobart Hurricanes

Hobart Hurricanes were close to being upset by the other Melbourne side on Tuesday but they somehow managed to get three points and sealed their playoff qualification.

Having posted a pretty decent 183-run target, Hobart must have been confident, thinking they have enough to beat the side currently hugging the foot of the table

But then the bat of Melbourne captain Aaron Finch (75) started talking, powering his side to 138-1. This is when Sandeep Lamichhane dismissed Shaun Marsh (51) and the Melbourne’s marauding ship got beached. The Gades finished just six short as the Hurricanes earned qualification, which also means their tally is now beyond the reach of the other Melbourne Stars, whom they face in this game.

Melbourne Stars

Melbourne Stars would have no love lost for city rivals Melbourne Renegades after the latter surrendered a comfortable position in their latest loss to Hobart, effectively ending the Stars’ BBL journey.

This now becomes a dead rubber for the Stars, who have nothing to play for except their pride.

All the Stars can do now is try out new talent in hope that they can be used in the future.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Hobart to win @ 2.072

Surprisingly, Hobart are the underdogs here despite making the playoffs, and Melbourne is the favourites even though they have crashed out. This is a dead rubber but Hobart, we think, would want to try harder considering you don’t want to enter playoffs on a losing note. The odds have been sourced from Paripesa.

Tip: Team with the highest score at first batsman’s dismissal – Melbourne @ 1.79

For Melbourne, it’s Joe Clarke and Glenn Maxwell who have been opening the innings while for Hobart it’s been, Caleb Jewell and Ben McDermott. As great as McDermott has been, the pairing of Clarke and Maxwell instills more confidence in us. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


This could be a close match and go either way but at underdog odds, we’re always going to pick the better side, even if it’s by a small margin. The better side here are Hobart.
