The Renegades are 2-0 to start the season thanks to some world class bowling from the likes of Kane Richardson and Daniel Christian.
The duo combined for six wickets during Melbourne’s four wicket win over Perth earlier this week, and with home field advantage against the Sixers on Saturday, the Renegades look tough to beat.
Sydney are 1-2 as the away underdog against the Renegades, although they have enjoyed the better part of this series winning four of their last five encounters.
Still, Melbourne’s bowling attack might sneakily be one of the best in the competition, and if veteran all-rounder Mohammad Nabi can continue to show form at the crease, they should take full advantage of this generous wicket.
Tip: Melbourne Renegades at $1.71
