The market is dead even between these two heavyweights in what is shaping up to be a fascinating rematch of last fortnight’s affair. We take a look at Friday’s (31/1/2020) BBL Big Bash 2020 match between Melbourne Stars and Sydney Sixers and give our tips and value tips for the match.
When: Friday, 31st January at 7:16PM
Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
Sydney defeated the Stars by 21 runs when these two sides met at the SCG, but they won’t hold particularly fond memories of their 44 run loss to Melbourne at the MCG back on January 12.
The Stars have looked the team to beat all year and punters are surely licking their lips at the current quote. David Hussey’s side has won three of their last five matches against Sydney and are also an impressive 6-2 as the home favourite over the last 12 months.
All that being said, the Stars have lost three games in a row leading into Friday’s match. Their most recent 71 run loss to the Heat certainly explains the even money on offer, but with the top spot on the ladder already wrapped up, it’s safe to say Melbourne was simply saving themselves for the finals.
The Stars have shown all season that they are capable of scoring runs in a hurry, so it’s almost impossible to ignore the value on offer here.
Tip: Melbourne Stars $1.83
