What are the hot tips and best bets for the Melbourne derby as the play-off picture clears up in WBBL?
<div><h2>Melbourne Stars vs Melbourne Renegades WBBL</h2><p><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/cricket/au/big-bash-league-women/melbourne-renegades-vs-melbourne-stars-3937580/" target="_blank" title="Game Odds"><strong>Friday 29 November, Junction Oval</strong></a></p><p>This is not quite the crucial contest that both teams would have envisaged at the start of the WBBL campaign. The Melbourne Renegades are bang in the mix with an even money record so far but the Stars have fallen. They sit bottom of the league table with their hopes of a play-off over.</p><p>The Renegades are buzzing. Last time out they made history by completing the highest chase in the competition against Brisbane Heat. Set 184 to win, the Renegades hunted it down with ease. They still had six balls to spare. The stars of the show were Danni Wyatt and Jess Duffin, who both struck half centuries with strike rates in the 180s.</p><p>Not surprisingly, the Renegades are hot favourites against cross-town rivals who have won only twice all season. William Hill go as short as 1.62 (8/13). The Stars are as big as 2.5 (6/4) with Unibet.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=168&a=4417b7df-a48f-47f3-9b45-f79858bc083a&f=3" target="_blank"><img alt src="https://images-production-euw2-753931602578.s3.amazonaws.com/5d582dcf927b95968483da5f/original-10-bet-new-customer-welcome-bonus" style="width:100%" /></a></p><p>There might be a touch of value in the latter price if – and only if – the toss goes their way. The Renegades have not shown themselves to be defenders worthy of such skinny prices. It’s 18 defeats out of 26. The Stars also prefer to chase so the gap could be narrowed if the flip goes their way. On the nine head-to-heads, Renegades have won five and lost four.</p><p>Renegades are averaging 13.5 fours per match in matches starting this year. Over the same study period Stars average 11.8. That could mean Unibet’s 2.1 (11/10) about the latter scoring most fours appeals. The worry is that in three games this term they have hit only 6-3-3. The Stars also average 1.7 sixes per game compared to Renegades’ two. Bet365’s 2.3 (13/10 about the Renegades looks a bet on most sixes, then.</p><p>Wyatt, by the way, gets favourite status for most runs in the match (both teams). Betfair and Paddy Power go 3.25 (11/4). The hitter is the same price with Hills to score a fifty. The latter would probably be the shrewder wager.</p></div>
