IT’S week two of the Scottish Premiership and day two of the lower-league season with some fascinating games to look at in Scotland.
William Hill’s Owen Scott did well with a series of winners with his stats last week and he’s back with some more gems.
Meanwhile, I tipped Dundee for the top six last week and after their 4-0 rout of Kilmarnock McBookie have cut them to achieve a top-six finish. Punters are confident they will finish higher in the table than their city rivals Dundee Utd and that is 2-1 from 3-1.
McBookie spokesman Paul Petrie said: “Dundee caught the eye on the opening day of the season and punters are convinced they will gain a top-six finish this season. There is every chance it will be at the expense of Dundee Utd and optimistic fans have been backing Dundee to finish higher in the table.”
Killie are 3-1 favourites to finish bottom of the pile while Gary Locke has been cut from 5-1 to 5-2 in the sack race.
Petrie added” “A big loss on the opening day of the season will always put a team under pressure but the fact Killie ended last season so badly makes it even worse.”
Meanwhile, here are some stats from Owen. Remember these are not tips.
