Harper & Lynn high-bat betting – Renegades vs. Heat BBL odds & tips

Renegades vs. Heat

The Renegades will hope to continue their mid-season revival on Sunday against the struggling Brisbane Heat at Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium.

The Big Bash League clash will be a crucial one for Brisbane, which is in desperate need of a win and at 2-4 and has its season teetering on oblivion.

Melbourne, in second place at 4-3 after two-straight victories, will be without its captain and star Aaron Finch, who is away on international duty for the Australian ODI team against India.

These teams duked it out just days ago and it was the Renegades who were victorious, convincingly winning by eight wickets after chasing 144 with more than two overs remaining.

While Brisbane captain Chris Lynn would be disappointed not to make the Australian side, his presence in this game is a big boost for Brisbane, which will need a big score out of him to register a positive result here.

GMHBA Stadium in Geelong has not yet been a happy hunting ground for the Renegades, but the odds favour a positive result for the home side.

Just three nights after splaying the Brisbane bowling line-up to all parts of the GABBA on Thursday night for a 40-ball 56no, Harper will come into this match confident and should enjoy the shorter Geelong boundaries. We expect the diminutive middle-order bat to have ample opportunity at the crease and continue his hot form.

It’s fair to say that Brisbane rely way too heavily on its skipper to score runs and if Brisbane are to revive its season and make the finals, Lynn will have to lead from the front here. Lynn should either open the innings or come it at first drop, providing ample opportunity at the crease and we’re tipping he comes good.

Renegades vs. Heat match tip

While the Renegades are running hot right now with two convincing victories, we think the unpredictable nature of this BBL season will continue and the Brisbane Heat will snatch a much-needed victory here.

Look for Chris Lynn to get amongst the runs and for the Heat to have learned from their Thursday night mistakes.
