Scottish Football: Best bets for Scottish Cup quarter-final weekend , says Mr Fixit


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) returns with his best bets from the weekend's Scottish Cup quarter-finals.

Hearts v Rangers | Saturday 29th February 2020, 17:30 | Premier Sports

Rangers' best chance of striking silver is by lifting the Scottish Cup and they can keep their hopes alive on Saturday evening. There are three decent ties this weekend with the Ibrox side's visit to Hearts the pick of the bunch.

Steven Gerrard's side will head to Tynecastle with revenge on their mind and with renewed confidence after a superb Europa League triumph at Braga. That result gives them a second chance of a trophy but they're one of the outsiders at 40/1 – while to win the Scottish Cup you can get 2/1 with sponsors William Hill.

It's been a strange season for Gers – consistently good in Europe but inconsistent in the Premiership.
The title's gone with Celtic 12 points clear and the writing was on the wall when Rangers returned from their winter break to lose 2-1 to the Jambos.

Incredibly that remains Daniel Stendel's only league win and his side remain at the foot of the table. Tynecastle will be rocking again and the home fans can be the 12th man but I'm on Rangers to get the job done this time.

Admittedly they're a bit short at a biggest 1/2 but a bet I like here is Rangers and Both Teams To Score at 21/10 with Bet365. Both teams have netted in the last six meetings at Tynecastle including two this season.

St Mirren v Aberdeen | Saturday 29th February 2020, 19:20 | Premier Sports

Later on Saturday night we have St Mirren v Aberdeen and the home side are on the up with one defeat in seven – although that includes five draws and a 0-0 at home to the Dons in the league.

Saints have found their scoring touch with six goals in two meetings, while their last six have seen both scoring.

After a run of low-scoring contests, Aberdeen's last four have brought up BTTS and Over 2.5 Goals. Back both to score at 19/20 with Bet365.

St Johnstone v Celtic | Sunday 1st March 2020, 15:00 | BBC Scotland

Celtic head to Perth on quarter-final duty on Sunday on a low after crashing out of the Europa League.

Saints drew with Rangers last week and are unbeaten in six since losing 3-0 at home to Celtic but haven't laid a finger on the champs this season with the other meeting a 7-0 defeat at Parkhead.

Celtic have won seven in a row at McDiarmid Park – five in a row to nil – and it's difficult to see past them.
The Bhoys are short at 3/10 so for value look at Celtic and Over 2.5 Goals at evens with Paddy Power.

Best Bets

Hearts v Rangers – Rangers to win and Both Teams To Score (21/10 Bet365)

St Mirren v Aberdeen – Both Teams To Score (19/20 Bet365)

St Johnstone v Celtic – Celtic to win and Over 2.5 Goals (1/1 Paddy Power)
