Tips for betting on the Melbourne Stars

There is a reason the Melbourne Stars have missed the finals only once – they’re always packed with talent. Here are some of the players to watch in the runscorer and wicket-taker betting markets this season.

Most wickets betting
Melbourne’s bowling lineup has changed significantly in the past few years, but Nathan Coulter-Nile and Adam Zampa are mainstays who should figure prominently in the BBL10 wicket tally. Billy Stanlake will look to make an impact after moving from Adelaide, while Zahir Khan adds another promising spin option.

Most runs betting
International call-ups have often left the Stars short on manpower at the heady end of the season, but the revamped schedule for the summer means the likes of Glenn Maxwell and Marcus Stoinis should be available for the entire BBL campaign. West Indian imports Andre Fletcher and Nicholas Pooran should offer plenty of entertainment.
