Perth Scorchers vs Melbourne Renegades Big Bash League Betting Tips
The BBL moves to a full-length home-and-away format for the first time this season, with all eight teams to play each other home and away. Last season, each team was drawn to play three teams twice, and as luck would have it the Scorchers and Renegades met in Perth and Melbourne. The Scorchers won on both occasions, prevailing by three wickets at Etihad Stadium on the back of opener Michael Klinger’s 37 and by five wickets at the now-disused WACA thanks to Ashton Turner’s 70 runs from 32 balls.
Turner had a superb BBL|07, averaging 27.67 with the bat at a strike rate of 162.58 – the third-highest strike rate in the league. Unibet is paying 1.87 for him to score 21 or more in Melbourne. Bet365 is paying 3.25 for Klinger to be Perth’s top scorer and 3.25 to score a half-century. For the Renegades, a lot of pressure will fall on stand-in captain Cameron White, who Bet365 has at 3.50 to score a half-century.
