We take a look at Sunday’s (13/1/2019) BBL Big Bash 2019 match between the Melbourne Renegades and Brisbane Heat. The Renegades go in as favourites after a comprehensive win over the Heat during the week and we think they can do that again.
When: Sunday 13 January, 6:35pm

The Heat fell by eight-wickets to the Renegades on Thursday night in a disappointing performance in front of their hometown fans. The two will do battle for the second time in Melbourne on Sunday, but after a huge three-wicket haul from Usman Shinwari in the first meeting, the Heat have their work cut out for them.
Following Thursday’s win the Renegades have now won seven straight over Brisbane, and with a two-way tie between themselves and the Sixers for the second spot on the ladder, a win this weekend is crucial.
Melbourne are 3-2 as the home favourite against the Heat, while the Heat’s 2-6 record as the underdog makes them almost impossible to back.
Tip: Melbourne Renegades at $1.80
