Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Stars betting tips & predictions
Guy Giles has picked out four tips to consider for your #BetYourWay as Brisbane Heat face Melbourne Stars on Thursday.
Melbourne Stars to win
The Stars got back to winning ways against the Hurricanes on Saturday, following a run of three consecutive defeats.
Brisbane have won their last two matches, but Melbourne won the reverse fixture earlier this season with ease, and should have enough to repeat that victory on Thursday.
Andre Fletcher to score over 17.5 runs
Fletcher has struggled with the bat so far in his first BBL season, passing this mark just once in seven innings to date.
It feels like he might turn a corner soon, though, particular after his two stunning catches in the field against Hobart – a match-winning contribution.
Joe Denly to score over 20.5 runs
Denly showed his class in the Heat’s recent win against the Sydney Thunder, striking 50 from just 36 deliveries in their successful chase of 175.
The England international will be a consistent source of runs for the Heat from the middle order, and this mark looks well within his reach again on Thursday.
Mark Steketee to take over 1.5 wickets
Steketee has been a key factor in the Heat’s resurgence in recent matches, taking 11 wickets in his last five matches.
He has claimed at least two wickets in four of those five games.
