THE Daily Record’s very own Mr Fixit (@mrfixittips) gives us his best bets from this weekend in Scotland.
Dundee United v Ross County | Saturday 15:00
United boss Mixu Paatelainen didn’t mince his words last week when he described his side’s display in the 5-0 defeat to Celtic as “rubbish”. The new Tannadice boss was spot on and while the truth hurts he’ll realise he faces a fight to keep the Tangerines in the top flight. That’s two defeats and no goals scored since the big Finn replaced Jackie McNamara.
County head for Tannadice buoyed by their midweek League Cup defeat of Inverness and while their recent form has been inconsistent they look good in the draw no bet market at 8/9 with Marathonbet.
Cowdenbeath v Dunfermline | Saturday 15:00
Do you remember the last time Dunfermline faced Cowdenbeath? It was 7-1 to the Pars after 3-1, 4-1, 5-1 and 6-1 successes. They also thrashed their Fife rivals 5-1 with both beatings at East End Park.
They’ve won four of six at Central Park, including two 4-0s, and nine of their 11 league games this season have gone over 2.5 goals. Seven of Cowdenbeath’s last eight league matches have also had at least three goals so go for over 2.5 match goals at 8/15 with Marathonbet.
Ayr v Stranraer | Saturday 15:00
Ayr are eight games unbeaten and breathing down the necks of League One leaders Dunfermline who they trail by a point.
Stranraer are languishing at the wrong end of the table and head to Somerset Park on the back of consecutive 3-0 defeats, including last week’s thumping at fellow strugglers Cowdenbeath. Ayr beat the Blues on the road earlier in the season and can bag the points on home soil on Saturday at 8/11 with William Hill.
Dundee United v Ross County – Ross County Draw No Bet (8/9 Marathonbet)
Cowdenbeath v Dunfermline – Over 2.5 Goals (8/15 Marathonbet)
Ayr v Stranraer – Ayr to win (8/11 William Hill)
