Bet: Bet On This Match HERE
Despite winning their last two games, things are getting a little testy for the fourth-place Stars. Melbourne can feel Sydney breathing down their neck on the ladder, and with five-straight losses to Brisbane dating back to 2014, it’s hard to feel confident in the Stars’ chances.
Fortunately for Melbourne, the Heat remain unpredictable. They’ve won just two of their last five-games, but their three wins on the road this year makes them a serious chance on Sunday.
The market is in favour of the Stars in this one, but their 0-3 record as the home favourite looks ugly. Brisbane, on the other hand, are 3-0 as the away underdog over the last 12-months, which makes the upset a pretty nice bet.
Tip: Melbourne Stars at $1.65
