So going back the last 15 years of GF results between BS and MS, I count, batting first;

BS - 9 losses, 5 wins, 1 no result
MS - 6 losses, 8 wins, 1 no result

15 losses, 13 wins and 2 no result grand finals in recent history between them for teams that bat first. I'm calling that difference between results insignificant, thus it does not matter if you bat or bowl first.

Win the toss and bat.
Yes we don't live in a perfect world and it doesn't always go to plan and get taken advantage of.
In footy, would you win the toss and kick with the wind or kick into it?
For me it brings a weak mindset. Rather win the toss, bat and lose than win the toss, bowl and lose.

Still irrelevant. Of the 28 times a team has won the toss and batted in the last 15 years, its 13 wins and 13 losses with 2 no results. 2 times a team has won the loss and fielded they have lost.

Oddly enough you might be a slight favourite if you actually lose the toss.
