JACK Wright's (@JackWright_BSB) new Bet of the Day continues on Thursday as we head to Scotland…
Dumbarton vs East Fife | Thursday 8th April 2021, 19:00
Scottish lower league clubs have been dealt a horrific playing schedule to contend with, one which would take a toll on the fittest of professional athletes but when you consider both these clubs are only semi-professional the main goal must be to make it through without serious injury.
This will be Dumbarton’s EIGHTH game in just 20 days having played since the 20th of March Saturday-Tuesday-Saturday-Tuesday-Thursday-Saturday-Tuesday-Thursday – for their part East Fife will be playing their seventh fixture in the same time frame.
Jim Duffy’s side have failed to score in eight of their last 10 league games and in 11 of their last 14 in all competitions which includes a Scottish Cup win over Highland League side Huntly.
Incredibly in the 11 competitive games played at their YOUR Radio 103FM Stadium this season not one has featured both teams scoring – ZERO!
Of The Sons' 20 competitive games so far this campaign only THREE have featured both teams scoring (15%) with the same percentage in their overall league games – implied odds of around 2/11.
Although East Fife games have seen plenty of goals recently their overall record is a fairly even split of games having both teams score – away from home in the league it actually exactly half but with odds of 10/11 with Sky Bet I can’t help put this forward as my Bet of the Day given Dumbarton’s troubles in front of goal and their likely fatigue.
Dumbarton vs East Fife – Both Teams To Score ‘No' (10/11 Sky Bet)
