The Stars and Sixers will kick off at 7:15pm local time on Wednesday at the MCG.

Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Sixers Betting Tips

Melbourne Cricket Ground, Wednesday, December 15th, 7:15pm AEDST

Sydney Sixers

Sixers Likely XI: Philippe, Vince, Henriques, Hughes, Silk, Christian, Curran, Jordan, Dwarshius, Kerr, O’Keefe

Both teams have all the markings of a true contender this BBL season. Of course the Sixers are the reigning back-to-back champs, but they were humbled somewhat on Saturday night by a blistering Hurricanes outfit. Matthew Wade, D’Arcy Short and Caleb Jewell thrashed the Sixers bowlers to all corners on their way to a massive score of 213. That was always going to be out of reach but Josh Philippe (72 from 46) continued his good form, while Moises Henriques also looks in excellent touch.

The concern is their bowling and how the Sixers can bounce back against another power-packed batting lineup. Tom Curran went at 15 an over while Chris Jordan was almost 13 an over - not exactly the returns you’d hope for from your overseas players. But they are experienced enough to get back to their best. Sean Abbott will also miss this game for the birth of his child, but that is balanced somewhat by the potential return of Ben Dwarshuis.

Melbourne Stars

Stars Likely XI:  Clarke, Stoinis, Larkin, Maxwell, Cartwright, Webster, Russell, Coulter-Nile, Zampa, Ahmad, Couch

It’s going to be tough for the Sixers if the Stars bat like they did the other night with Marcus Stoinis, Glenn Maxwell and Andre Russell all in ominous form with some massive blows against the Thunder. When you throw in the fact that Joe Clarke hasn’t fired at all yet, and we’ve yet to even see Beau Webster or Nathan Coulter-Nile with the bat, the Stars are in good shape.

The one area I’d suggest the Stars could be exposed is with their bowling. They have two quality spinners in Adam Zampa and Qais Ahmad, and Nathan Coulter-Nile is dangerous while he’s fit, but they are vulnerable after that. Brody Couch is still learning the ropes while Dre Russ is not the threatening bowler he once was. They do have part-time options from there if required, with Glenn Maxwell likely to bowl a few. Hilton Cartwright or Beau Webster can chip in, but Marcus Stoinis won’t be troubling that side strain at the bowling crease.

This is a cracking contest and a true coin flip match. I feel that if the Sixers can put pressure on the Stars bowling, then they may be able to expose their next-string bowlers, while the Sixers have more depth with their bowling options. There could be plenty of runs scored in this one!

Sydney Sixers to win

We’re going to back plenty of runs in this one with two formidable batting lineups. Our same game multi will combine both teams to score 145+ runs, with a couple of consistent run scorers.

According to our new BBL11 Data Tools, we can see that James Vince will reach 10 runs 83% of the time, and Marcus Stoinis will do so 82% of the time.

I like that consistency so let’s include both of those, or take 20+ if you’re feeling more adventurous!
