Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Renegades match prediction

Hobart Hurricanes will take on the defending champions Melbourne Renegades in match number 11 at Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Tuesday.

Hobart Hurricanes are walking into this fixture after having handed a 52-run drubbing by Melbourne Stars. They got off to a good start in this edition of the Big Bash League after outshining Sydney Sixers but they were derailed by an in-form Stars side. On the other hand, the reigning champions Renegades have had a horrid start to the tournament as Aaron Finch and co. have ended up losing both their games so far. On paper, Renegades are a team to beat but they have not been anywhere near their best and therefore, this is THE game where they can turn things around and get them started in the points table.

In the meantime, while Hurricanes and the Renegades lock their horns, let me help you unlock the idea of making easy money by placing your bet on the right market, which I am going to tell you in this piece.

Melbourne Renegades expected to lose to the home team at the Bellerive Oval

Aaron Finch to light up Bellerive Oval

Finch has not fired yet for the Renegades in both matches they have played so far in this ongoing season of the Big Bash League. He got starts in both matches but unfortunately, he got out resulting in disappointment for the Renegades fans. I bet he is not going to disappoint you and your bank balance in the forthcoming fixture.

Finch has had a good run with his willow in 2019 having scored 215 runs in eight T20 International matches for Australia at an average of 35.83. He featured in the Vitality Blast T20 in England, and there too, he managed to rack up 398 runs in 13 matches at an average of 36.18. He even went on to score a century in that tournament.

Now comes the interesting part where I am going to convince you fully why he is going to make you money tomorrow. Finch is the highest run getter (372 runs) when Hurricanes and Renegades have clashed in the previous seasons of the Big Bash League and he averages 46.50. There is no one even close to his numbers as the second best has 237 runs (Ben McDermott - Hurricanes). Finch has scored 221 runs in six matches at this venue and has three half centuries under his belt against Hurricanes. Oh, you are still reading! I thought I had lost you while you were occupied placing your betslip on Renegades skipper to be the top batsman @ 3.40 for his team?!

Kane Richardson to run riot with the ball

Kane Richardson was recently roped in by Royal Challengers Bangalore for the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League and there must be a reason so as to why that happened. It is because of his current run of form with the ball with the Australian national side and as well as on the domestic circuit.

Richardson has already picked up four wickets in two matches at an average of 10.00 and an amazing strike rate of just 12.0. The match against Perth Scorchers saw the big fast bowler pick up four wickets for just 22 runs in his four overs. And he loves playing against Hurricanes it seems; He has six wickets in just three games, and I am quite sure he is famished.

Richardson has had a good run for the national side as well. In his last four T20 International matches for Australia, he has managed to add six scalps to his name. Finch is going to back him but are you willing to do the same? If you are, then Bet365 is offering odds of 3.20 for the Renegades seamer to be the top team bowler for the visitors.

Renegades to have the last laugh

Renegades have mostly had the upper hand when it comes to facing Hurricanes in the Big Bash League. The two sides have locked horns nine times in the previous seasons and Renegades has come out on top in six occasions.

What is even more interesting – the two teams have played six times at the Bellerive Oval and Renegades have had the last laugh on four occasions! As I have already mentioned that Finch and co. will be a team to beat on papers and I am sure the team has already looked into these statistics. It might give them that psychological edge over Hurricanes on Tuesday and come up victorious.

Many bookmakers' online are offering odds of 1.85 on Renegades to win the encounter.

Renegades to win - odds 1.85 and above

Clear value in this price according to me. Precicely what this match might bring to you as well - more money to stack to our bankrolls!
