The Renegades meet the Sixers for the second time this week and after a big surprise win by the Sixers, Melbourne will be looking for revenge.
After finishing bottom for the past three BBL seasons, the Renegades have turned things around this season and been very consistent, while the Sixers have a great roster and are trying to climb the ladder.
Melbourne defectors: $1.92
Sydney Sixers: $1.84

Although Aaron Finch and James Vince are both in their 30s, they are still among the classiest batsmen in the BBL and their years of experience in the format means they still produce great cricket.
Finch is back on form and his raw power is helping him average 59 this season and lead the way for the Renegades.
He’s under a lot less pressure since he’s neither a starter nor a captain and is free again.
- Most Renegades runs – Aaron Finch: $4.05
Much like Finch, James Vince is a technically correct player whose drives can destroy any bowler.
He’ll like the pace on the ball typically generated on Marvel Stadium’s drop-in pitches and will lead the way for the Sixers runs here.
- Most Sixers runs – James Vince: $4.10

SPIN TO WIN
Mujeeb Ur Rahman and Izharullaq Naveed have been big mystery spinners in the BBL and this seat at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium usually keeps slipping and generating some spin.
Ur Rahman has been unlucky in the wickets column so far, but his spin, which can go either way, will confuse the hitter here against a Sixers side much better at responding to pace.
- 2+ Gates – Mujeeb Ur Rahman: $4.45
Naveed has been a great international pickup for Sydney, his fast spin comes a lot quicker than the batsmen realise, and he has two wickets or more in two of his three games.
- 2+ wickets – Izharullaq Naveed: $5.30
Until their loss to the Sixers on Wednesday, the Renegades looked like the most consistent team of the two. But with the form of Kane Richardson and Aaron Finch in recent years, they’re looking too strong under the Marvel Stadium roof.
THE CHOICE: Melbourne Renegades H2H: $1.94
