Scottish Football: Dons can deliver big win, says Mr Fixit


DAILY RECORD star Mr Fixit (@mrfixittps) shares his best bets from Saturday's action.

Aberdeen v St Mirren | Saturday 16th February 2019, 15:00

St Mirren's number looks up and when they play Aberdeen that number is usually four for forlorn. The Dons have won three meetings this season including 4-0 and 4-1 home victories. In fact they've netted four in the past three against the Buddies at Pittodrie and to score 4+ again are 9/2 with Coral although -3 pays much bigger at 7/1 with 888.

Those are speculative bets but Saints have lost five in a row and looked doomed so take Dons -1 at 20/21 with Bet365. Derek McInnes' men have netted 12 in four including that favourite number against Queen of the South last week in the Cup.

Sam Cosgrove has turned into their main man with 14 goals in 13 games including doubles in his last two outings and he could run Saints ragged.

Rangers v St Johnstone | Saturday 16th February 2019, 15:00

Rangers missed Alfredo Morelos last week but should beat St Johnstone despite his continued absence. Fellow frontmen Jermain Defoe and Kyle Lafferty are also doubts so Steven Gerrard will have to use someone in an unfamiliar role – such as pushing winger Ryan Kent up top – to get the job done.

Saints' confidence has been rocked by a run of five defeats, albeit three were against Celtic, and they've netted just once in that spell. Tommy Wright's men hardly laid a glove on the champions as they crashed 5-0 in the Scottish Cup but should at least be harder to beat here.

The visitprs look to keep it tight and frustrate striker-less Gers and I like a home win and Under 3.5 Goals at 23/20 with Ladbrokes.

Montrose v Forfar | Saturday 16th February 2019, 15:00

Last week's Super Single was Forfar and bookies are again underestimating them with Marathon offering 19/10 at Montrose.

Forfar are level on points with Raith in second in League One and in fine form with five wins and a draw in their last six while Montrose have one victory in four.

Go for Forfar draw no bet at 21/20 with Marathon.

Best Bets

Aberdeen v St Mirren – Aberdeen -1 handicap (20/21 Bet365)

Rangers v St Johnstone – Rangers to win and Under 3.5 Goals (23/20 Ladbrokes)

Montrose v Forfar – Forfar draw no bet (21/20 Marathon)
