The 39th match of the Big Bash League will take place between Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on Thursday, the 14th of January.
The two teams are going to face for their first match in the season. Both Brisbane Heat and Melbourne Renegades are currently in the bottom half of the table and while Brisbane Heat are still in the competition with 16 points to their credit, Melbourne Renegades are currently struggling with only 9 points, getting 2 victories from 9 matches they are currently in the last place n the table and will be out of the competition soon if they don't manage to pull a few victories in. In past Seasons Renegades have a record of pulling off a victory against the Heat in 10 out of 13 games between the teams. This is going to be the first game between the teams at Manuka Oval, and I have picked the best team bets from the market, to win you money from the game.
This bet is a winner for sure and the performance by Heat shows that. Especially now that skipper Lynn is coming out to open with veteran Max Bryant. Chris Lynn and Max Bryant have only come to open in 2 games and have scored a total of 87 runs from their opening partnerships in the games. Bryant has been opening throughout the season and they have a pretty good track record. The Heat have scored a total of 314 runs (68, 37, 0, 73, 1, 11, 37, 68, 19) from their opening partnerships of 9 games, at an average of 34.88. The other factor that can be considered for the bet is how fast have Melbourne Renegades been able to take the first wicket. The Renegades have conceded a total of 306 runs from the opening partnerships of 9 games. This is an average of 34.0 which is pretty conducive for our bet. LeoVegas has offered odds of 1.87 for Brisbane Heat to score over 21.5 runs from their opening partnership.
I have another winning bet for you here, and while it correlates to the previous bet, it has its strengths in the bowling performance by Brisbane Heat. As I mentioned, Brisbane has an average opening partnership of 34.88 from 9 matches, what is also extremely relevant is, Brisbane have conceded only 147 runs at an average of 16.33 from their opponents in the 9 matches. This means they maintain opening partnerships at double the average that they concede, which is a remarkable feat. If we consider the same statistics for the Renegades, while they have tried a volley of different partners, they have only hit a total of 229 runs(70, 14, 2, 13, 75, 20, 4, 0, 31) from their 9 matches at an average of 25.44, which is on an average 10 runs per match less than the Heat managed from their opening partnerships and like I mentioned previously, they conceded partnerships at an average of 34.88 from the games, which is more than double of the average the Heat have conceded at. When we compare, we realize that not only does Brisbane Heat score higher on average from the opening partnerships, but they also concede fewer runs to their opponents' opening partnerships than the Melbourne Renegades. Sportsbet.io is offering odds of 1.90 for Brisbane Heat to be the team with the highest score at 1st dismissal.
I have another bet on Brisbane Heat here, that is a winner. In the 9 matches played by Heat, they have been pretty adept at hitting the big boundaries. In the 8 complete matches they have played, they have hit 49 sixes(7, 10, 3, 9, 3, 6, 7, 4 ) at an average of 6.13, while the Renegades have only managed to hit 24 big boundaries (2, 1, 3, 1, 4, 4, 4, 5) from their 8 complete matches, at an average of only 3.0. Brisbane Heat has even conceded Sixes at a lower average than the Renegades, with the Heat conceding 42 Sixes from 8 matches at an average of 5.25 sixes per match, while the Renegades conceded 55 sixes from 8 matches at an average of 6.88. Another statistic to drive the final nail in the coffin for the bet, Renegades have scored more sixes than their opponents only in 1 out of the 8 matches, while Brisbane Heat has managed to score more sixes than their opponents in 5 out of their 8 games. This is a very safe bet, with Sportsbet.io offering odds of 1.79 for Brisbane Heat to hit the most match 6's.
