Scottish Football: Easter Road encounter to excite, says Mr Fixit


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

Hibs v Motherwell | Saturday 16th March 2019, 15:00

There have been loads of big stories in Scottish football this year but right up there is the transformation of Motherwell.

Manager Stephen Robinson looked on his way out after a Scottish Cup exit at the hands of Ross County. But his side responded with five successive wins and their only defeat in eight was at Celtic.

From looking doomed Robbo's rockets can climb into the top six with victory at Hibs on Saturday. It's some turnaround and has been inspired by kids with David Turnbull and Jake Hastie in fab form up top.

Hibs have lost just one in five under new boss Paul Heckingbottom and battled to a point at home to Rangers last week.

It's a massive game at Easter Road and with so much forward talent on show there should be goals. Five of Motherwell's last six have gone Over 2.5 and Hibs under Heckingbottom are all about attack. Back Over 2.5 Goals for the fifth successive meeting at Easter Road at 6/5 with Marathon.

Dumbarton v Airdrie | Saturday 16th March 2019, 15:00

In League One, the best bets are Dumbarton, on a run of four wins and a draw in their last five.

Visitors Airdrie have just one win in nine and have lost four of their last five.

All three league meetings have season have ended in a draw but the in-form Sons can edge this one at 11/10 with Betway.

Forfar v Raith | Saturday 16th March 2019, 15:00

Also in League One, it's third v second as Forfar entertain Raith and I'm going for goals.

The last four at Station Park have seen Both Teams To Score and Over 2.5 Goals, as have eight of Raith's last 10 away trips.

Take BTTS and Overs again at evens at bet365.

Best Bets

Hibs v Motherwell – Over 2.5 Goals (6/5 Marathon)

Dumbarton v Airdrie – Dumbarton to win (11/10 Betway)

Forfar v Raith – Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score (1/1 Bet365)
