The Stars top the betting ahead of last season’s finalists and $6.50 equal second favourites Hobart and Perth.
“The Stars went undefeated in the group stage last season and will no doubt be looking to make amends for that disappointing loss to the Hurricanes in the semi-finals,” Sportingbet’s Andrew Brown said.
“The team will once again be stacked with top class players and they are clearly the ones to beat.”
It’s shaping as a disappointing season for both Sydney clubs according to Sportingbet, who rate the Sixers and the Thunder as their $9 outsiders.
“We had the Thunder pencilled in at bigger odds but the signing of Jacques Kallis should help their chances.”
