Scottish Football: Saints to fall under Stendel’s spell, says Mr Fixit


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

Hearts v St Johnstone | Saturday 14th December 2019, 15:00

Hearts pushed the boat out to tempt Daniel Stendel to Tynecastle and he has to deliver quickly.

The Jambos achieved the impossible by playing worse under Austin MacPhee than they had been when Craig Levein was in charge.

One point from 12 has left them off the bottom on goal difference and 10 points behind sixth-placed Hibs.

Make no mistake top six will be Stendel's target but first he'll need to banish the threat of relegation.

We all know Hearts should be higher up and while injuries have played a part their displays have been rank rotten.

Tynecastle used to be a fortress but the Jambos have the worst home record in the league with just one win.

Stendel will hope to make his mark right away and a home meeting with basement boys St Johnstone, who have lost five in a row at Tynecastle, gives him a great chance.

Saints haven't won away and new manager syndrome should come into play here and I'm happy to risk Hearts at evens with Ladbrokes.

Arbroath v Dundee United | Saturday 14th December 2019, 15:00

Dundee United stormed 10 points clear at the top of the Championship by winning their game in hand at Morton in midweek.

They're almost champions elect but face a tough test at Arbroath.

The Gayfield side are in contention for a play-off spot and have only lost one of eight at home, where they've taken 10 points from the last 12.

United's seven-game winning streak features three straight away victories and I like both teams to score here at 47/50 with Marathon.

Airdrie v Peterhead | Saturday 14th December 2019, 15:00

In League One I'm taking Airdrie to return to winning ways at home to Peterhead.

The Diamonds' run of six straight victories ended in defeat at Raith, who replaced them at the top.

Peterhead sit seventh and their away form is dreadful with six defeats in seven in league and cup.

Back Airdrie at 11/10 with Betfair.

Best Bets

Hearts v St Johnstone – Hearts to win 1/1 (Ladbrokes)

Arbroath v Dundee United – Both Teams To Score (47/50 Marathon)

Airdrie v Peterhead – Airdrie to win (11/10 Betfair)
