JUST six regular season fixtures remain in BBL07 and it is our pick to win the competition, the Melbourne Renegades, who will dictate the makeup of the top four this season.
Most teams have played eight or nine of their ten fixtures already but the Renegades have stepped out just seven times, meaning they hold all the aces heading into the playoffs.

Currently fourth with four wins, the Renegades play the second placed Strikers, fifth placed Thunder and sixth placed Heat in the coming week. Wins over either of the latter two would end their respective seasons.
Three wins would catapult them to seven in total, level with current top-placed side the Scorchers. Their clash with the Strikers in Perth on Thursday looms as the other key fixture this week.
But the Renegades won’t have things all their own way. Without captain Aaron Finch and number three Cameron White, the Gades’ batting depth looks likely to be tested against three sides with plenty to play for.
One thing that won’t change is the body of work being put into our FREE daily BBL07 selections service, which at time of writing (Monday 22/1) was sitting on a 17.74 unit profit at 28.85% POT for the tournament to date.
