Dec 2: Scottish-English Betting Preview


I SAID at the start of the season it would be a two-horse race for the Scottish Championship title – and that’s the way it’s panning out.

Dundee United entertain Hibs tonight having closed the gap at the top to three points after eight wins and two draws in their last 10 games.

So for many they will look big at 2-1 with Betfair while Neil Lennon’s visitors are 8-5 at William Hill.

The last two meetings at Tannadice have been draws and a third in a row pays 5-2 at Marathonbet.

Crucially Hibs will be without star man John McGinn and I don’t see a confident United losing. Best bet could be United draw no bet at 21-20 with McBookie.

Hibs have stopped conceding cheap goals with two shipped in six games so if you fancy a low-scoring take under 2.5 goals at 4-5 with Stan James.

In England there could be a thriller between Nottingham Forest and Newcastle – the two highest-scoring teams in the Championship.

They’ve netted 68 goals between them at a rate of 1.88 per game. So the obvious bet is over 2.5 goals and I was surprised to see it paying as much as 5-6 with 188Bet.

Eight games at the City Ground have produced 32 goals but to counter that Newcastle have conceded just three on the road.

Rafa Benitez paid the penalty for resting players in the weekend defeat at home to Blackburn but should be back to full strength. I reckon Newcastle, a best 13-14 with 188Bet, will edge this but anyone who saw Forest batter Barnsley 5-2 last Friday will prefer to go for goals.

That’s the Super Single as I go for four in a row following Reading on Saturday, St Mirren to score 3+ on Tuesday and Hearts draw no bet on Wednesday.

    Yes, both sides netting freely for most of the season so far and goals look likely, with Forest firing only 3 blanks in 18 and Toon just 2 blanks. I’ve gone BTTS in my treble and also for bet two of the Challenge.
