Sydney Thunder vs Melbourne Renegades Betting Tips 19/01/2022

Zohaib Ahmed, Senior Author

The 55th fixture of the Big Bash League 2021-22 sees Sydney Thunder take on Melbourne Renegades on Jan 19 (Wednesday) at Melbourne Cricket Ground. The match is to begin at 10:40 am IST.

Teams Status

Sydney Thunder

Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers have an equal number of points ahead of their final round-robin fixtures but the latter sit second and former third due to net run rate difference.

With the Sixers scheduled to play Brisbane Heat earlier in the day, when this game begins, the Thunder would know what’s required of them to reclaim the second spot, which brings with itself a direct route to the final.

The Thunder’s hot run around the New Year has been somewhat dampened, thanks to twin defeats to Hobart Hurricanes and the Sixers in their last two games. 

That said, those defeats were against major sides, and the Heat are nowhere near their caliber.  

Melbourne Renegades

Melbourne Renegades let go of a big chance to cause an upset and vacate the bottom of the points table as they lost to Hobart Hurricanes despite being in a commanding position.

Chasing 183, the Gades were cruising at 138-1 in the 15th over, with 45 needed off 31 balls – an easy task when you have nine wickets in hand.

But in yet another reminder of why they are last and why they have been last the last two campaigns, Melbourne middle-order froze as they finished at 176-6.

They will get one more chance to swap places with Brisbane Heat on the points table but it won’t get any easier as the Thunder are a powerhouse.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Sydney to win @ 1.43

It’s more chalk than we’re comfortable with but we see no reason why the Gades should win this – not with the frail middle and lower order they have. Their only chance is if Aaron Finch can hit them into an extremely comfortable position from up top. Otherwise, it’s a mismatch. The odds have been sourced from Sportsbet.

Tip: Jason Sangha to score more than 21.5 runs @ 1.87

Both Jason Sangha and Alex Hales are consistent run-scorers for the Thunder but we like Sangha’s controlled aggression more. We go for him also because his spread is three runs lower than Hales’. The odds have been sourced from Parimatch.


The Thunder have won their last three games against the Renegades. We see a fourth straight win coming their way.
