AUG 8: SCOTTISH FIRST SCORER TIPS & CONTEST

Goal

THE only online bookmaker listing first-scorer prices on all SPFL games are McBookie.com – and Damian Walker is back with his popular first-scorer tips.

It’s a great service they provide and we’ve teamed up with the Scots firm to look at some of the best bets from the Scottish lower leagues.

Also leave your pick of first scorers at the end of this article for a chance to win a £10 free bet with McBookie.com.

You can choose this weekend from the Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two. One correct entry will be picked at random to win the prize. Quote player, team and his odds – and a reason if you like.

Meanwhile, here is McBookie.com’s Damian with his Saturday selections.

He says: After the Premiership kicked off their League programme last weekend now it is the turn of the lower leagues in the SPFL to get underway following a couple of weekends of cup action.

In the Championship Dumbarton are McBookie’s 9-4 joint favourites with Alloa to finish bottom while Livingston are 5-2 and Morton 3-1.

I would personally have Morton as clear favourites from Alloa, Livi and then Dumbarton but my views count for very little. And it is just the same with my wife.

Ton landed the League One title last season but it was probably a below-standard year in that division as so many teams could have won the title at various stages and there was no stand-out side.

Their squad hasn’t really been strengthened in the summer and in their game against Championship opposition in the Challenge Cup they were beaten 3-2 at home to Dumbarton.

Morton entertain Falkirk in their opening League fixture and I expect the Bairns to take all three points.

Falkirk signed Motherwell’s Bob McHugh in the close season and the striker has scored a goal in each of his first two games as his new side beat lower league opposition. McBookie make McHugh 6-1 to score the opening goal against Morton.

Another team I will be looking to take on this season and already have in the cups and ante-post betting are Brechin. The loss of their manager Ray McKinnon to Raith was a huge blow and the squad looks like one that is going to struggle this season.

I have already taken the SPFL sponsors’ initial offer of 8-1 for them to finish bottom of League One. McBookie are just 4-1.

Brechin are already out of the Challenge Cup and the League Cup after 3-0 and 2-0 defeats to League One opposition in the form of Peterhead and Ayr.

And on Saturday they face 5-2 title favourites Dunfermline who have cleared out most of the squad that let them down so badly last season.

New boss Allan Johnston did well at Killie before the Robbie Muirhead sale soured things and the Pars have begun with two comfortable victories.

The early quote of 11-8 about Dunfermline for this game has all gone and the Pars and now odds on at 20-21. That might still be on the big side though given the relative starts to the season of the two sides and their respective squads.

Dunfermline striker Fayssal El Bakhtaoui has been well backed with McBookie at 12-1 to be the League One top scorer this season and has already bagged four goals in the two cup games. The Moroccan is 9-2 with McBookie to continue his good start to the season with the opening goal of the game.

In League Two there’s a good chance we could be seeing the two teams who might fight out the title later on in the season when Stirling host Clyde on Saturday.

The Bully Wee are McBookie’s 11-4 title favourites ahead of 7-2 second favourites Stirling.

Both have strengthened their squads in the summer, especially Clyde, and manager Barry Ferguson really should be lifting the title with the players he now has at his disposal.

Auchinleck striker David Gormley was Ferguson’s ninth signing of the summer and the frontman’s goals helped his former side lift the Junior Cup last season. Gormley is 6/1 with McBookie to get off the mark in the League this season with the game’s first goal.

Can you find a winner!

    Martyn Waghorn got two goals against Hibs in his opening game for club but last week in league cup he could not find the net so will be looking for goal tonight as all strikers need goals to keep their confidence up

    That El Bakhtaoul fellow sounds good at 9-2.

    McBookie will refund a losing £5 bet as a free bet, so I think I’ll have a wee investment.
