THE DAILY RECORD’S Mr Fixit (@mrfixittips) gives us his three best bets in Scotland this weekend.
Stranraer v Alloa | Saturday 15.00
When will Alloa’s bubble burst?
That’s the big question. The Wasps have started the season in super style with six wins in a row including the scalps of Ross County and Inverness on their way to the Betfred Cup quarter-finals.
The perfect run has to end but hopefully it’s not this weekend as bookies are offering better than evens in a win at Stranraer.
While Alloa have excelled the Blues have lost three in a row and conceded 11 goals.
A pair of 3-0 defeats to Rangers and Motherwell in the Cup was followed by an even heavier 5-1 thumping at Livingston in the League One last week.
Alloa’s perfect record has to end but hopefully it’s not in this one and I’m taking the Wasps at 23/17 with marathonbet.
Dumbarton v Dundee United | Saturday 15.00
United dazzled at Partick in the Cup and should dump Dumbarton – whose 4-3 defeat at Dunfermline was flattered by potting two late penalties.
The Sons are leaking goals – nine in three games – and if the Tannadice men repeat their cup display they look good for the three points at 8/11 with William Hill.
Queen Of The South v Ayr | Saturday 15.00
Another side I like are Queen Of The South.
Boss Gavin Skelton tried to nick the headlines from sister Helen with a shock 3-1 Cup win at Hibs in midweek and having also drawn with Dundee United they should take full points when Ayr visit.
Queens are a best 3/4 at Coral.
Stranraer v Alloa – Alloa to win (23/17 marathonbet)
Dumbarton v Dundee United – Dundee United to win (8/11 William Hill)
Queen Of The South v Ayr – Queen Of The South to win (3/4 Coral)
That’s right. We’re giving away £10 instant cash if Alexis Sanchez touches the ball in Sunday’s game against Liverpool at the Emirates.
