AFTER another winner last week, Willie Duncan (@Willie_Duncan) returns with another Scottish pick for us.
Montrose v Arbroath | Saturday 15:00
I hope you followed me in last weekend and backed Hearts -1 v Dumbarton. No worries eh?! Talking of Hearts, they’re not the only side running away with their division in Scotland this season, let’s not forget about Arbroath. The Red Lichties have picked up 24 points from their opening nine matches in League Two.
This weekend they travel to Links Park to face their arch-rivals Montrose and I think we could be in for a cracker. With Montrose without a win in three, the natural pick is the 6/5 with BetVictor for an Arbroath win but I reckon I’ve found an even safer bet for you. You see in seven of the last eight meetings between these sides saw more than three goals were scored and I expect a similar outcome on Saturday. They’ve already met three times this season with 12 goals scored in these clashes.
Montrose have been struggling to keep the goals out in recent matches with at least two leaked in their last five games while Arbroath are scoring goals for fun. I get the feeling this could be an open, exciting affair as Montrose will be desperate to beat The Lichties. For that reason it’s Over 2.5 Goals for me at the 10/11 on offer from BetVictor.
