IT’S a quiet Wednesday, that’s for sure. The only game taking place in the UK leagues is from Scottish League Two. We got Chris Graham (@chrisgraham79) to take a look.
Berwick v Montrose | 15th October 2014
Looking for a bet this Wednesday? Well, there’s always this Scottish League Two match between Berwick and Montrose.
Both sides are fairly evenly matched with only six points separating them last season in the mid-table of the Scottish fourth tier. Indeed in three of their last four match-ups the sides both picked up a solitary point.
It’s Montrose though who boast better recent form this season. The Gable Endies have won two of their last three games in the league and managed to take L2 leaders Arbroath to a replay in the Scottish Cup second Round. George Shields’ side are up in fourth in the table at the moment.
Berwick have had a different experience in recent weeks with just two points picked up from a possible 12 in the league. To be fair, they have been up against the likes of Albion and Queens Park within that spell, so it would be folly to write them off here. Colin Cameron’s side also managed a respectable 2-0 win over non-league Formartine United in the Scottish Cup.
After reading my opening paragraph on this article I’m sure you knew which way I was going here. The outsider of the three in the Match Prices is the draw and that’s where my money will be going. A few bookmakers including BetVictor are going 11/4 on that eventuality and that’s enough for me to take a small interest. Three draws in the last four meetings, very few points separating the sides, the away side in slightly better form, yeah it’s a draw at Shielfield Park for me.
