REN vs THU Match 40 Predictions & Betting Tips

Melbourne Renegade will take on Sydney Thunder in the 40th match of the ongoing Big Bash League, 2021-2022. The match is going to be hosted at the Docklands Stadium in Melbourne on January 8, Saturday. I have the top betting tips from the REN vs THU match prediction picked out for you.

Covid-19 has brought in a lot of uncertainty in the Australian domestic circuit. As of today, a double fixture is set to be played on Saturday. The first of which is a fixture between the Renegades and Thunders as they meet for their first encounter in the ongoing tournament. Over the past, Melbourne Renegades and Sydney Thunders have gone head on in thirteen matches, out of which the Renegades won on nine occasions. However, the current campaign has a different story to tell. The Renegades will be joining this fixture after their second win of the tournament against Melbourne Stars in the Melbourne Derby. The Renegades have been in poor shape throughout the season and the side has just managed to win two games so far. They currently sit at the bottom of the table with just one point ahead of the Stars. On the contrary, Sydney Thunders have made some interesting changes and continued to impress us with their current form. The Thunders will be brimming their confidence after their back to back wins in the last three games. Meanwhile, take a look at the top three betting tips from the Melbourne Renegades vs Sydney Thunders head-to-head match collated for you.

Sydney Thunders are one of the best sides in the 2021-22 BBL campaign who will make a real contender for the title. We are going to bet on Thunders to win the match in the REN vs THU team betting tips./span>

Sydney Thunder To Win

After a convincing win against Adelaide Strikers in their previous match, the Strikers have made their way up to the third spot of the 2021-22 BBL points table. They currently have five wins from eight matches with a total of 19 points under their name. With the power and depth in their lineup the Thunders are already performing quite well. As for the Renegades, they have struggled to find any sort of rhythm in the BBL season. Surprisingly, they have managed to continue this poor form since the last season of BBL. As for the head-to-head matches between the Thunders and Renegades in their last five head on encounters, the Thunders have beaten the Renegades thrice. In fact in the last season they faced each other on two occasions, where both the matches were in favour of the Thunders. In one of the matches, the Thunders won by a massive margin of 129 runs, while in the second match they took home a seven runs win. The batting line up for Thunders look so much more stronger with the likes of Jason Sangha, who has taken this game to another level along with Sam Billings who is also in terrific form. The bowling attack has also been power packed with Daniel Sama, Nathan McAndrew and Saqib Mahmood all capable of scalping wickets at different times. Sydney Thunders will be our favourite going into this fixture. Pari Match has offered winner odds of 1.56 in favour of Sydney Thunder in the REN vs THU match prediction.
