LONGSHOT lover Gerry Taylor (@thefurlongpole) picks out a few big prices to cheer on this weekend.
Falkirk vs Airdrie | Saturday 12th March 2022, 15:00
This should be a cracking match with two attacking outfits. Airdrie sit in second place in League One, whilst Falkirk have play-off aspirations.
The Bairns are a strong corners outfit – averaging 6.57 flag-kicks. The Diamonds themselves typically earn 5.86 corners, so a high match total could be incoming.
Hence, I’m going to speculate that both sides can hit close to their corners average of 6 flag-kicks apiece. It pays 4/1 with Skybet.
Peterhead vs Montrose | Saturday 12th March 2022, 15:00
Similarly, there is an expectancy for a high corner tally at Balmoor. Their previous three head-to-heads suggest so:
- August ’21 – 13 corners
- October ’21 – 13 corners
- December ’21 – 16 corners
For that reason, Skybet’s 7/2 for 13+ corners could prove to be a nice price.
Kelty Hearts vs Albion | Saturday 12th March 2022, 15:00
The last time that The Wee Rovers rocked up to New Central Park, they were hit for six by The Maroon Machine. Indeed Kelty will be licking their lips at facing the opposition again here, as they also netted 3 earlier this season in Coatbridge.
Striker Nathan Austin will be champing at the bit, as he has bagged 5 goals already against the Lanarkshire strugglers. So, I’m going to take another punt here, on a Maroon 5 – which pays 8/1 at Skybet.
