Hobart Hurricanes vs Melbourne Stars (7:10pm AEDT)
Stars to Win ($1.75)

The action takes us back to the Apple Isle on Monday night for an intriguing fixture between the Hobart Hurricanes and Melbourne Stars.

The ‘Canes are two from three heading into this match, but they are probably luck to have beaten the Sixers first-up and really did only just get over the line against the Renegades last time out. They face another rise in class against the Stars, who themselves are wounded after suffering their first loss of the season.

The Stars look to be a genuine title threat this BBL season and enter this one with a similar 2-1 record. Their big offseason signing spree looks like paying dividends and they will be eager to bounce back with a win here. There’s still plenty of meat on the bone for them to win at $1.75 and I’m happy to back them at that price.
