Jul 26: Betfred Cup Betting Preview


RANGERS booked their place in the last 16 of the Betfred Cup and will be seeded after winning their group.

There are another 12 ties tonight with several sides looking to book their

East Fife have been the surprise team of the Betfred Cup and can clinch a last-16 place by winning at Forfar.

They beat Dundee on penalties then triumphed over Dumbarton and Peterhead so there’s no reason why they can’t complete the job and top Group A. The Fifers are 8-5 at William Hill.

Dundee are targeting one of four best second places and can’t afford any more slip-ups. Deadly duo Greg Stewart and Kane Hemmings shared five goals as they bounced back to dump Dumbarton 6-2 and Dee are 8-13 with Skybet to win at Peterhead.

Stewart hit a weekend hat-trick and was branded “irreplaceable” by boss Paul Hartley. Try Dundee and over 2.5 goals at 13-10 with Paddy Power.

St Johnstone have been pitch perfect in Group B and can all but seal top spot with a win at Brechin. They are 8-15 at Betfred and Ladbrokes.

Dundee Utd, Dunfermline and Inverness are involved in a titanic tussle in Group C and tonight the Highlanders travel to face the Pars.

Both sides need a win and while it’s tough to call there should be goals with over 2.5 paying 9-11 at 888sport.

Cup holders Ross County are in danger of an early exit in Group D and must beat Alloa who have won both their ties. I’m not keen to back County at 7-10 but I like both teams to score at 4-5 with bet365.

Group E looks like a straight shootout between Partick Thistle and QoS. With Queens not playing tonight the Jags can take a big step to the last 16 by winning at Stenhousemuir and are 8-15 with Betfred.

Motherwell should revive their hopes in Group F with a comfortable win against East Stirling. They are no bigger than 1-7 at Betfred so take Well minus one at 4-11 with Ladbrokes.

Livingston v Ayr should be close in Group G and this is one that could go to penalties. Take the draw at 14-5 with bet365.

And finally in Group H Killie have a must-win game at Berwick and are 4-9 with William Hill to beat a young side.

      Ross County need to win but it’s a tricky one on Alloa’s plastic pitch.
      County weren’t great at the weekend either.
