Melbourne Renegades betting

Melbourne RenegadesFor the first few seasons of the BBL, the Melbourne Renegades have been the city’s ‘little brother’ team.

While the Melbourne Stars hog much of the limelight, the ‘Gades have built a working-class reputation and attracted fans who love an underdog.

That all changed in BBL08 when the Renegades stunned the Stars in one of the most memorable Big Bash finals yet, but now they have reverted to type and look set for a tough season in 2023/24.

We’ll look at the Renegades’ odds, their squad, the BBL fixture and the best betting markets in our full team preview.

Melbourne Renegades players to watch

Quinton De Kock

Quinton De Kock

Quinton De Kock is one of the best additions to the BBL competition in recent years and will be an even more important figure for the Renegades. The South African wicketkeeper-batter’s form throughout the Men’s ODI World Cup in India was breathtaking and Renegades fans will be optimistic this continues when he suits up for game two at the SCG against the Sixers.

Jake Fraser-McGurk

Jake Fraser-McGurk

Jake Fraser-McGurk could become one of the brightest young stars in the BBL if he brings some of his form from the South Australian Redbacks to the Renegades. The 21-year-old had tongues wagging on October 8th when he belted 125 runs from just 38 balls with 13 sixes and 10 fours and tried to chase down 436 in 50 overs. If Fraser-McGurk brings form half as strong as that to this summer’s BBL13, he will be brilliant to watch.

Adam Zampa

Adam Zampa

The loss of West Indian Akeal Hossain has been thwarted by the addition of Adam Zampa to the Renegades bowling stocks. Now the single best-performed Australian spinner at a Men’s ODI World Cup, Zampa will be keen to show his former franchise that trading him was a big mistake. Zampa’s addition to the Renegades with De Kock could make them a title contender.

Melbourne Renegades odds and betting tips

$10 with the top Australian bookmakers for the Renegades to win BBL13 is brilliant value given the additions of De Kock, Zampa, and Joe Clarke to go with Kane Richardson, Will Sutherland, and Mujeeb Ur Rahman. The power, skill, and x-factor in this squad have been greatly undervalued, and the Renegades will show plenty of doubters how wrong they are in time.

Melbourne Renegades all-time XI

The Melbourne Renegades have had no shortage of superstars, T20 hired guns, and absolute show-stoppers in their six years in the BBL. Some have flown, while other have flopped. This is the all-time Renegades XI based on performances in the BBL:

  1. Aaron Finch
  2. Chris Gayle
  3. Cameron White
  4. Tom Cooper
  5. Ben Rohrer
  6. Dwayne Bravo
  7. Sam Harper
  8. Cameron Boyce
  9. James Pattinson
  10. Kane Richardson
  11. Muttiah Muralitharan

The Melbourne Renegades have one of the most talented All-Time XI’s with Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, and Muttiah Muralitharan all having stints at the franchise. Combined with Aaron Finch, Cameron White, and Tom Cooper, this is an incredibly dangerous batting order.

Bravo and Muralitharan lead a bowling attack with Cameron Boyce, James Pattinson and Kane Richardson who have all excelled for the franchise and gone on to represent their country.
