Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
Tied with the Sixers on points, this is a huge match for the Renegades as they look to steal second spot on the ladder. Melbourne have now won three-straight and four of their last five, while their six-wicket victory over the Hurricanes last month puts them in a good spot to secure an upset on Thursday.
The Hurricanes remain on top of the ladder, but they’ll need to win out from here to remain first. Hobart have looked a little unsteady over the last fortnight losing to the Sixers, and more recently, the Strikers. It’s also worth noting Hobart have won just three of their eight match ups against Melbourne dating back to 2012.
With home-field advantage it’s not surprising to see the Canes as the favourites, a scenario they are a measly 1-3 in against the Renegades. With Melbourne looking very tough to beat recently, take these upset odds while you can.
