Brisbane Heat vs Melbourne Stars Betting Tips

As it stands, the Brisbane Heat hold a slight upper hand over the Melbourne Stars, primarily due to the home advantage they enjoy. With an average score of around 166 runs in domestic T20 matches at the Brisbane venue, captains would prefer batting under the lights.

While the batting line-ups of both teams appear equally robust, their on-field performance will ultimately determine the outcome.

Moreover, the Brisbane Heat boast an advantage in the head-to-head record, leading 11-7 in favor of the hosts. Considering these factors, we lean towards placing our bets on the runners-up of season 12 of the BBL, the Brisbane Heat.

Maxwell is in tremendous form and scored a century as well in the last T20 game he played.

The betting tip is...

Glenn Maxwell to score 39.5+ runs.
