Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder Betting Tips 10/12/2021

Teams Status

Sydney Thunder

This will be the first of back-to-back matches to be played between these two teams within three days, with the second meeting scheduled for Sunday.

Sydney have made a winning start to the season, quite easily beating Brisbane Heat by seven wickets to collect four points in the generously rewarding Big Bash League.

The architects of their victory were their trio of pacers namely Gurinder Sandhu, Daniel Sams, and Nathan McAndre, with the former two claiming a pair each and the latter finishing with three.

In the run chase, the Thunder had their hiccups initially but then Sam Billings and Alex Ross got together for a 109-run partnership for the fourth wicket to get their side home.

The Thunder thrashed the Stars the last time they met but had lost four straight to them before that. Could they turn that win into a spree or a run? They can if their bowlers remain on song again.

Melbourne Stars

Melbourne Stars could not have imagined a more horrific start for themselves in this Big Bash League. In their opener against Sydney Sixers, they were thrashed by 152 runs.

Literally, nothing worked for the Stars in this game. They first let the Sixers amass 213-4 and were then bundled out for a mere 61.

Only two batsmen managed to get into double figures as the Stars imploded, managing to last a little more than half of their allotted 20 overs.

They finished seventh last year and missed out on the playoffs, and judging by their performance in their first game, it seems as if this year is not going to be any different.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sydney to win @ 1.91

Sydney were impressive in their opening game of the Big Bash League, while Melbourne were depressive. It’s easy to see why we’d want to side with a side that won their opener by seven wickets as opposed to the other that got hammered by 152 runs. It’s the easiest of choices. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Alex Hales total runs over 23.5 @ 1.87

Sydney won their opening game despite Alex Hales suffering a rare failure. The Englishman was Sydney’s best player last year but could not get off the mark and lasted only two balls in the win over the Heat. He’s too good a batter to fail twice in a row. It may seem like a gambler’s fallacy or us trying to chase a loss but it’s not that. Hales, on his day, can be a world-class batter. It’s a shame that his international career seems to over prematurely and he has to be content with playing T20 tournaments only. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


As explained above, the Thunder were dominant winners in these teams’ last meeting. The margins can change but we again expect Sydney to come out on top and erase the pain of prior defeats to Melbourne.
