Scottish Cup: Steelmen to seal progress on Saturday, says Mr Fixit


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) returns with his best bets from Saturday's Scottish Cup card.

There are 16 Scottish Cup ties this weekend but in reality only two sides have a chance to win it.

The Old Firm are so far ahead of the rest this season it's hard to see them losing a testing one-off tie.

It's even more unlikely they'll fall to a lower-league side. Rangers, who host Stranraer on Friday night, are set to the first name in the last 16 yesterday and Celtic are massive odds-on favourites to join them when they face Partick Thistle.

If you think I'm being unfair on the likes of Aberdeen, Motherwell and Hibs then look at the outrights. Celtic are 11/8 favourites at William Hill with Rangers 11/4 – and the latter looks big considering there is so little between the sides. Third in the book are Aberdeen at 14/1 with Motherwell 22-1, Hibs 25-1 and Killie 33/1.

St Mirren v Broxburn | Saturday 18th January 2020, 15:00

The romance of the Scottish Cup takes seventh-tier Broxburn to top-flight St Mirren for what will be a great day out for their fans – and a heavy but not embarrassing defeat.

Saints should cover the -2 handicap without much hassle at 5/6 with Sky Bet.

Dundee v Motherwell | Saturday 18th January 2020, 19:20 | BBC Scotland

Dens Park is the place to be for Saturday night's late show and I'm on Motherwell at 4/5 with Betfair.

The Fir Park side are flying high in third spot in the Premiership, while Dundee are hanging on to a top-four spot a division below.

Dundee's home form is poor – three defeats in their last four – and the Steelmen can take full advantage.

Best Bets

St Mirren v Broxburn – St Mirren -2 handicap (5/6 Sky Bet)

Dundee v Motherwell – Motherwell to win (4/5 Betfair)
