Thursday’s Bet Of The Day: Go low on goals in Scottish showdown


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.

Having had a passion for football for as long as I can remember – I’m talking Shoot League Ladders here – one of my first “bets” is still my biggest win. After begging my mum to let me fill in her pools coupon so I could show off my knowledge, eight draws later and a cheque for £11,500 was soon in the post. As a Norwich fan it’s important to have a good grasp of what’s going on in the lower leagues and I also like exploring those less popular leagues to have a delve into any stats-based markets that are available. Right now, I’m particularly enjoying player bets. Outside of sport, I love eating and drinking - maybe a little too much - as well as listening to a varied spectrum of music, both from the comfort of my own home and at festivals.
