Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder Preview
Melbourne Stars will be playing their second game in as many days when they take on Sydney Thunder at Manuka Oval.
The Stars fell narrowly short of winning the final last year and head into this game as clear favourites.
The odds could change dramatically following the Stars first BBL match though so it might be worth waiting to bet on this match but I’d be surprised so see the Stars lose this match.
