Scottish Football: The Smokies may come unstuck in the City, says Mr Fixit


THE DAILY RECORD'S Mr Fixit (@mrfixitstips) picks out his three best bets in Scotland this weekend.

Morton v Dumbarton | Saturday 15:00

Until the Premiership resumes the focus is on the Championship.

Dumbarton's response to being humiliated by Bonnyrigg in the Scottish Cup has been impressive and they are unbeaten in three. In that spell they've defeated Falkirk and Dundee United and drawn at Ayr with 10 men.

They face another tough test at Morton and I reckon the Greenock men will edge it.

Jim Duffy's side snatched a last-gasp point at St Mirren last week with 10 men and have lost just one in 10.

Take Morton at 19/25 with Marathon.

Stranraer v Alloa | Saturday 15:00

In League One Alloa's title charge has faltered with a string of slip-ups featuring plenty of goals.

Their last eight games have seen both teams score and six of those have gone Over 2.5 Goals.

Stranraer have been similarly leaky – they've conceded at least twice in four of their last five – so Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score is the choice here at 9/10 with Stan James.

Edinburgh City v Arbroath | Saturday 15:00

Edinburgh City look best bets in League Two as they entertain Arbroath.

City beat their rivals away and drew at home and are on a run of one defeat in 12 – 11 of those games went Under 2.5 Goals.

Arbroath are in decent form too, unbeaten in four, so keep the stalemate onside by taking City draw no bet at 131/100 with Marathon.

Best Bets

Morton v Dumbarton – Morton to win (19/25 Marathon)

Stranraer v Alloa – Over 2.5 Goals and Both Teams To Score (9/10 Stan James)

Edinburgh City v Arbroath – Edinburgh City draw no bet (131/100 Marathon)
