Scottish Football: Hibs to make mincemeat of Lowland minnows, says Mr Fixit


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

Hamilton v Rangers | Saturday 8th February 2020, 12.30 | Premier Sports

Rangers rescued their title hopes with a late winner against Hibs in midweek but Steven Gerrard may see the Scottish Cup as his best hope for silverware.

A seven-point gap to Celtic isn't insurmountable with a game in hand and two Old Firm games to come but there's a growing feeling the champions won't slip up.

That piles the pressure on Rangers who simply can't afford any more mistakes.

Gers travel to Hamilton at Saturday lunchtime and it has the makings of a good one. The Ibrox side have won six in a row there with the matches producing 30 goals.

Accies have netted in five of them so go for Rangers and both to score at 21/10 with Bet365.

That's enforced by Accies scoring in last Sunday's defeat to Celtic – and they only caved in near the end after defending well with 10 men.

Falkirk v Hearts | Saturday 8th February 2020, 19.20 | BBC1 Scotland

There are five other ties on Saturday and all should be hard fought. I there's a shock it could come at Falkirk where Hearts are the visitors.

Hearts have followed their defeat of Rangers with a 3-3 draw at St Johnstone and 3-2 defeat at home to Killie and Daniel Stendel must be concerned at the number of goals conceded.

Keeper Joel Pereira has had nightmares and League One Falkirk could take advantage.

They are a biggest 9/2 with Bet365 but the best bet is both to score at 4/5 with William Hill with quality strikers such Liam Boyce, Steven Naismith and Declan McManus on show.

BSC Glasgow v Hibs | Sunday 9th February 2020, 12.00 | BBC1 Scotland

Sunday is the day of the underdogs with Clyde hosting Celtic and Lowland League minnows BSC Glasgow at home to Hibs – although “home” is in Alloa.

There's no reason for Premiership outfit Hibs to rest players so the best bet here is back them -2 at 11/10 with Skybet.

This could be a rout and I don't expect 11/10 to survive.

Best Bets

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

Falkirk v Hearts – Both Teams To Score (4/5 William Hill)

BSC Glasgow v Hibs – Hibs -2 handicap (11/10 SkyBet)
