BBL08’s final match of the regular season will be between two of the top four sides in the competition.
The fourth-placed Melbourne Stars will host the second-placed Sydney Sixers at the MCG this Saturday.
Sydney is guaranteed a position in the finals, but whether they will face the Hurricanes in Hobart or one of the Melbourne sides will be determined in this match.
A win would secure a home Semi Final for the Sixers, something that will be on top of their agenda heading into this heated clash with the Stars.
With the opportunity to overtake cross-town rivals, the Renegades, the Stars will also enter the match expecting the best from their players.
Back in December, when these sides faced for the first time, it was the Stars who celebrated the victory, winning by 5 wickets with five overs left to play, a true belting.
The contest will be more even this time around as the Sixers will have access to Australian Test spinner Nathan Lyon, who could be a valuable asset if they decide to let him play.
Best BBL Bets for Marcus Stoinis

|Top Stars bowler||–||–||$4.20|
Renowned throughout the competition as the best all-rounder there is, Marcus Stoinis is a sight to behold when he’s up and about.
The powerful 29-year-old is a machine with the bat, capable of clearing the boundaries against both spin and pace.
Not only does Stoinis know how to hit a big ball, he also has the ability to find gaps, rotate the strike and play along the carpet.
With ball in hand, his ability to hit a good length with enough speed to swing or bounce the ball is an under-appreciated skill, one that Marcus typically executes at the death.
Seeing as this match is at the MCG in front of the healthy local crowd, Stoinis should thrive in the conditions.
Stars vs. Sixers betting predictions
With the crowd on their side and the chance of making the finals on offer, the Stars are more likely to win this match.
The Sixers have a good chance at winning, but due to the better batsman playing in the Stars sheds, they will simply outplay the Sixers bowlers.
