DAILY Record tipster Mr Fixit joins us this weekend on WeLoveBetting. Here are his thoughts on Saturday’s Scottish games.
Rangers v Alloa | Saturday 15:00
Rangers are very short at home to Alloa, and although I expect them to win, I’m not interested in the 1/5 best price with William Hill. Lewis MacLeod is the key here, the Gers will be keen to have him available after his Scotland experience, and he might be the one to side with in the goalscorer markets.
Hibs v Queen Of The South | Saturday 15:00
Hibs have a hard match here as they host third-place Queen Of The South. You’ll recall that Queens beat them at Palmerston back in September, and although Alan Stubbs’ side have improved since then, I’ll swerve the 21/20 on a home win with BetVictor. Queens have scored 12 in their last four games so it’s Both Teams To Score for me at 4/7 with Bet365.
Falkirk v Hearts | Saturday 17:30 | BBC Alba
Hearts have been cruising this season, but mark my words, this will be a tough tie for them here. Robbie Neilsen’s side have been finding things harder on the road (scored just 11 goals, compared to 22 at Tynecastle) and I wouldn’t be shocked if Falkirk got something here. I’ll be avoiding the odds-on for Hearts and instead I’ll have a wee dabble on the 11/4 with Skybet that Hearts win by a one goal margin.
Airdrie v Morton | Saturday 15:00
Morton are flying just now and I’m confident they’ll oblige here at 7/5 with William Hill. They beat Airdrie midweek in a Scottish Cup replay and have now won their last four visits to New Broomfield. The sides have met four times this season with Jim Duffy’s side winning two and drawing the other games. I’m with The Ton here.
Stirling Albion v Stranraer | Saturday 15:00
Stranraer have been in superb form recently and have been banging the goals in as well. They’re eight matches unbeaten and with Jamie Longworth on their side they should be too strong for Stirling Albion on Saturday. The Bino’s have had two tough games in the Scottish Cup against Hurlford United and lost midweek to Brechin. New manager Stuart McLaren has conceded that his side look jaded and I expect Stranraer to take advantage at odds of 10/11 with Skybet. That’s my best bet of the weekend.
Elgin v Queens Park | Saturday 15:00
I’ve been watching a lot of Queens Park this season and I’ve not been surprised by their progress. Gus McPherson brought in a lot of players from the Junior ranks and it looks like it’s paid off. They took time to get going but now look like they’ve really gelled as a unit. They go to bottom of the table Elgin on Saturday and City look in a mess after getting knocked out the Scottish Cup by non-league Bo’ness United. 7/5 with William Hill looks a fantastic bet.
Hibs v Queen Of The South – Both Teams To Score (4/7 Bet365)
Falkirk v Hearts – Hearts win by one goal margin (11/4 Skybet)
Airdrie v Morton – Morton to win (7/5 William Hill)
Stirling Albion v Stranraer – Stranraer to win (10/11 Skybet)
Elgin v Queens Park – Queens Park (7/5 William Hill)
