Feb 27: Scottish Football Betting Preview


MORTON pulled off one of the biggest shocks of the season in midweek when they beat Hibs 3-0 away.

The Greenock men were as big as 16-1 so you can imagine the price they were -2.

McBookie now go 2-1 that treble-cashing Hibs end the season empty-handed. The Easter Road side have rightly been picking up plaudits by reaching the League Cup Final, last eight of the Scottish Cup and sitting second behind Rangers in the Championship.

McBookie.com spokesman Paul Petrie said: “After such a brilliant season there is a chance they can end up with no trophies and another season in the Championship.”

Hibs lost at Dumbarton in August but should bounce back against a side who have failed to score in four. The away is no bigger than 2-5 with bet365 and McBookie so again under 2.5 goals at 23-20 with McBookie is the call.

Rangers are now eight points clear of Hibs who crashed to a 3-0 defeat at Morton in midweek. Mark Warburton’s men are closing in on the title but will face a test against improving St Mirren today. Buddies boss Alex Rae returns to one of his former clubs having guided his side to three wins in four.

All of those were at home though and in between there was a 1-0 defeat at Queen of the South. Without top scorer Martyn Waghorn Gers won 1-0 at Queens with Kenny Miller’s wonder goal and I can see another low scorer.

Rangers should win but are no bigger than 1-5 with Stan James but best bet could be under 2.5 goals at 13-8 with Ladbrokes.


What’s been the most exciting fixture this season? Think long and hard and tell me if Aberdeen v St Johnstone was your answer.

The sides have met twice with the aggregate score Dons 5, Saints 8. It’s incredible to think last time they faced each other at Pittodrie the visitors ran out 5-1 winners.

The Dons gained some revenge with a 4-3 victory at McDiarmid just three weeks ago – but they almost blew it after leading 4-1.

Going by those games there should be goals galore today and it’s likely Aberdeen will score more than their fair share.

Saints have lost five of their last six, conceding 14 goals, and Tommy Wright’s men have forgotten how to keep clean sheets.

So back the Dons to win at 8-13 with Skybet while a home success and over 2.5 goals pays much better at 13-8 with Paddy Power. Both meetings this season have gone over 5.5 goals. Could it happen again – if you believe take 16-1 at Coral.

At the opposite end of the scale both Dundee v Inverness meetings have finished 1-1 and a third pays 6-1 at McBookie.

A draw is possible at 9-4 with bet365 and I wouldn’t put anyone off backing Kane Hemmings to score at 19-10 at McBookie. Hemmings has rattled home 13 in his last 11 games.

Hearts have struggled against Killie this season with a win and two draws – and in all three both teams have scored. A repeat of that coupled with a Jambos victory pays 12-5 at William Hill.


In League One Dunfermline and Peterhead are setting a hot pace. The leaders have won three in a row and scored three goals in both of their victories against Stranraer this season.

Dunfermline are 3-10 at Stan James and 6-4 at Stan James to score three or more goals. Peterhead have won five out of six and conceded in all of them – the other match was a 0-0 draw against Dunfermline.

They are 21-20 with Coral to win and concede while a double on Pars and Peterhead pays 4-5 at McBookie.

In League Two best bet could be over 2.5 goals at Berwick v Montrose at 13-20 with bet365 . Eight of the last nine meetings at Shielfield have gone this way and both meetings this season.

Berwick’s last four have averaged four a game and there have been 24 goals in Montrose’s last five. Over 3.5 could even be on at 13-8 with McBookie.
