Sydney Sixers vs Melbourne Stars Betting Tips 05/12/2021

Teams Status

Sydney Sixers

Two-time defending champions will be in action on the opening day of the new tournament. Their agenda for this year will of course be to go for a three-peat, a task that is never easy in any sport and has never been accomplished in the BBL.

While the chasing pack’s focus during the off-season was to add new and exciting players to their roster, the Sixers merely tried to retain what they had and so there was a spree of re-signings.

To make matters worse for others, the Sixers have added veteran allrounder Dan Christian as well as England’s Chis Jordan to an already talented and champion squad. However, they’ve lost West Indies’ Carlos Brathwaite to an injury.

Melbourne Stars

While the Sixers will be gunning for their fourth BBL title this season, Melbourne Stars have never even won it once and are still sitting on the proverbial duck. Three final appearances, however, show that they are capable but have just seen their luck betray them.

That said, luck had nothing to do with their poor campaign last season. They had made the BBL final the prior two seasons and were again expected to be among the top dogs but finished second last, above only the league-worst Melbourne Renegades.

They’ve added a few decent names to their rosters such as Joe Burns, Joe Clarke, and Qais Ahmed but it remains to be seen if that will be enough.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sydney to win At 1.78

There is no way we are going against two-time defending champions anytime soon. Not when they have retained most of their title-winning squad and even added a few more gems. The play and odds have been sourced from 22Bet.

Tip: Glenn Maxwell total runs more than 23.5 @ 1.87

Melbourne Stars’ Glenn Maxwell is among the top five run-getters at the Sydney Cricket Ground. He averages 33 runs at the venue, which is much more than we want him to do here. A mere 24 runs are what we’re backing him to score. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.

Conclusion

Look, Melbourne Stars were poor last year but the form does not carry forward from tournament to tournament in this format – not when the new tournament takes place a year later and you can literally revamp a huge chunk of the squad. Melbourne will/can be better this season but we are sticking with Sydney for now.
