Melbourne Stars vs Sydney Thunder
SGM: Stars Win/Stoinis Stars Top Runscorer ($6.53)

The Melbourne Stars were given a real touch-up by the Sixers on Sunday, and they will be eager to reverse their fortunes at the expense of the Sydney Thunder tonight.

The big hitting Marcus Stoinis was ruled out of the contest late, but even his inclusion could hardly have slowed the rampant Sixers, and there’s little doubt that their crosstown rivals pose a far bright prospect of success for the Stars.

The Thunder began their BBL11 campaign in style with a comfortable win over the Heat, and they’ll be eager to keep alive their unbeaten start to the season.

I can’t imagine the Stars turning in another lacklustre performance like their first, and I think that they can sneak home tonight.
