AUG 11: SCOTTISH FOOTBALL TIPS

genericfootball

AT the start of the season I predicted a Celtic, Aberdeen, Hearts 1,2,3 in the Scottish Premiership and that’s exactly how it stands after the opening two rounds.

That trio are the only teams with 100 per cent records and while there is a long way to go I’ve seen no evidence to change my mind about those three predictions.

I’ll be backing wins for Celtic and Hearts on Wednesday while the Dons are not action this midweek.

Another of my big antepost calls was Dundee to finish in the top six at the expense of Dundee United.

Both have started with one win and one defeat and tonight clash head on in the first big game of the Scottish season.

Paul Hartley’s side were sucker punched by Hearts at the weekend but if Rory Loy is fit to form a front three with Greg Stewart and Kane Hemmings I’ll be on the visitors at 13-5 with McBookie.

Being the underdogs you can take over evens on draw no bet (11-8, Skybet).
United were happy to get off the mark at Motherwell but look a young team in transition and having finally won a derby last season a more experienced Dundee can take the first bragging rights of the new campaign.

Stewart netted a double in the opening-day rout of Killie and looks the club’s biggest threat. He is 15-2 at boylesports to score first.

Loy is the same price at McBookie while Hemmings is 17-2 with bet365.

Tonight’s other Premiership game sees St Johnstone tackle Ross County at home. Saints have suffered a stuttering start – including a disappointing Euro exit – but did manage to steal a last-gasp point at home to Inverness on Saturday.

County look in better shape and bounced back well from their opening-day loss at Celtic to beat Hamilton.

The Dingwall men possess a decent twin threat up front in the shape of Craig Curran and Liam Boyce and look big at 31-10 with Betfred. Again taking the insurance of draw no bet you can have 2-1 at Skybet.

A double on Dundee and County pays 12-1 at Ladbrokes and could tempt me inot parting with a point.

Meanwhile, there was more talk on the site about Dunfermline yesterday. They’ve been my Super Single the last two Saturdays, beating Cowdenbeath 5-1 and Brechin 6-1, and I advised backing them against Beath this Saturday as soon as prices were revealed.

The good news is you can still get 4-5 at Betfred and 2-1 with boylesports on Dunfermline minus one. All their three wins this season have also saw both teams score and a Pars win plus btts pays 2-1 at Paddy Power.

I’m on all three but the main bet must be Dunfermline to win.

    Can’t disagree with any of them Mr F

    We travel to Dundee on Saturday – I do fear for us based on what I’ve seen of dundee so far! If they win tonight I’ll definitley be backing them to beat us on Saturday

    Going for over 2.5 goals at 1.8 in the Dundee game, got a history of high scoring games.

    Have to say I saw Dundee United at fir park on sat and I thought although we played well United still beat us , not sure Dundee can beat them at Tannadice. Hearts / Motherwell both to score could be the shout, we’ll still don’t look to clever at back but with ainsworth back a play off type performance hitting hearts on the break could see goals , your thoughts Mr F?

    I haven’t been convinced by Hearts yet. They are very susceptible at the back and but for inexcusable misses by McGowan and Harkins on Saturday they could have been 3-0 down. They got back into the game courtesy of a dodgy penalty and then a ucker punch from Juanma.

    The week before that they barely squeezed past a poor Saint Johnstone side who are yet to find their feet it seems.

    Motherwell were excellent at Inverness on the opening day and Fletcher up front looks a real handful. They could(should) have won that game by 3-0 minimum. John Hughes made 3 subs by HT (one an injury) which shows how ineffective INverness were.

    Marvin Johnson then turned it on against Dundee Utd and if reports are to be believed The Arabs were lucky to take the points away.

    Annoyingly Motherwell were 5.4 with McB yesterday and I didn’t take it. They are now into 4.1 which is closer to where I think they should be although I still think there is value in that price.

    You can still back them at 4.75 with Coral or 3.5 Draw No Bet. Their price for +1.5 team goals is also 3.5 and possibly the most worthy bet.

      Of course +2.5 match goals at evens takes the win aspect out of it and looks really likely with any game involviing Hearts at the moment

    Will Dunfermline be this weeks Arsenal
    Everything says they will win
    But looks a bit to obvious
    And it’s always the obvious one that lose
    Last weekend Arsenal v West ham
    Every one said Arsenal to win
    Result 2-0 to West ham
    Good luck Mr F but I will be leaving
    Dunfermline off my list this weekend

      AGD, Arsenal weren’t playing Cowdenbeath. Dunfermline have already beaten them 5-1 and think they should be okay.
