Adelaide Strikers vs Melbourne Stars (7:10pm AEDT)
Stars to Win ($1.80)

An interesting match looks like materialising in Adelaide tonight when the Strikers, who have returned to excellent form recently, take on the league-leading Melbourne Stars, who are fresh off a rare loss.

The Strikers dip in form earlier this month now appears to be a memory and they are seeking a third win in succession when they step out tonight. The return of prodigal son Travis Head has clearly had an enormous effect, and the side will be confident of taking the W and ultimately keeping pressure on at the top of the table.

The Stars were potentially undone by the inclement weather and the shortening of their match with the Sixers on Monday, but a loss is a loss and they will need to regroup immediately to overcome this formed opponent. I think they will.
