It’s a quick turnaround for the Heat following Tuesday’s match against the Thunder in Sydney. After earning their first win over the Scorchers last weekend, Brisbane will fancy themselves as they return to The Gabba, but as the odds suggest, the Heat are still a long shot against a Renegades side looking to make a push up the ladder.
Melbourne held on for a six-wicket win over the Hurricanes on Monday night, led by a huge three-wicket haul from Kane Richardson. The Gades have only lost two games against Brisbane in their nine meetings dating back to 2012, and have also enjoyed a handy six-game unbeaten run.
There’s no denying Melbourne aren’t too familiar with being the favourite in away matches, however. The Renegades are 1-1 in this scenario over the last 12 months, while Brisbane are 0-2 as the home underdog against Melbourne.
Tip: Melbourne Renegades at $2.15
