Perth find themselves with nowhere to go on the bottom of the Big Bash ladder, and there’s no reprieve in sight with the third-place Renegades coming to town on Monday.
Melbourne have won three straight games heading into this one, also enjoying a handy six-day break. The Renegades won their most recent match over the Scorchers back in December, but before that they’d failed to record a single victory over Perth dating back to 2011.
With home-field advantage the Scorchers find themselves as favourites, a scenario they are 2-0 in against the Renegades. Considering Melbourne are 3-1 as the away underdog over the last 12-months however, you have to like the Gades at this price.
Tip: Melbourne Renegades at $2.14
