Scottish Football: Back Cove to conquer the Binos, says Mr Fixit


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) returns with his best bets from Saturday's action in Scotland.

Stirling v Cove Rangers | Saturday 24th August 2019, 15:00

There are no standout out games in the Premiership on Saturday but there is a standout team in action lower down the leagues.

Cove Rangers have been an excellent addition to the SPFL and their games have been thrill a minute. As soon as they hammered Berwick in the play-offs I tipped them to win League Two at 6/1 then at 7/2 on the ante-posts. The Highland League champions are now no bigger than evens at BetVictor ahead of second favourites Edinburgh City at 6/1 with Paddy Power.

Cove started with a 5-0 rout of Edinburgh and were held 4-4 at Albion Rovers before beating Cowdenbeath 3-2. They top the table with seven points and this weekend face pointless basement boys Stirling Albion who have lost all their league games 1-0.

Cove look banker material and an away win and Over 1.5 Goals looks good at evens with Paddy Power – and those odds are dropping.

Ross County v Livingston | Saturday 24th August 2019, 15:00

In the Premiership, Ross County could be Saturday's best bets at home to Livingston. They've started well with a 3-0 home defeat of Hamilton then missed a penalty in a draw at Hearts.

Last week's League Cup defeat at Partick was a setback but Ross can stay unbeaten by beating a Livingston teams that's drawn their openers.

County are 6/5 at Betfred.

Dunfermline v Dundee United | Saturday 24th August 2019, 15:00

The Championship's going to plan with the Dundee clubs unbeaten but both face tough tests on Saturday.

Dunfermline pushed Celtic all the way in the League Cup last week and on that performance look big at 2/1 with Ladbrokes at home to Dundee United.

However, United are unbeaten in eight trips to East End Park and arrive with some firepower so the best bet is both to score at 19/20 with Sportingbet.

Best Bets

Stirling v Cove Rangers – Cove Rangers to win and Over 1.5 Goals (1/1 Paddy Power)

Ross County v Livingston – Ross County to win (6/5 Betfred)

Dunfermline v Dundee United – Both Teams To Score (19/20 Sportingbet)
