Mar 26: SPFL First Scorer Tips & Contest


THE only online bookie that lists SPFL and Scottish Cup first-scorer prices for every game are McBookie.

McBookie‘s Damian Walker gives his first-scorer tips every weekend and challenges punters to pick their own.

From all the entries the only winners were sa1nt and mal c who both picked Elgin’s Craig Gunn at 16-5. That mean a toss of the coin and it was sa1nt who won. Email [email protected] to claim your prize.

Leave your tip as a comment and quote player’s club and first-scorer price with McBookie – Scottish games only – for a chance to win £10 this weekend. Here is Damian with this week’s selections.

He says: The Pars have played 15 League One games at East End Park, winning 10 and drawing or losing the other five.

You’d be a poor man if you kept backing 1-4 shots with that profile. And when you consider their visitors this weekend are a Brechin side who are going for their fifth straight win how on earth can the Hedgemen be 10-1 for this match?

That price is laughable so once again I’m weighing in with an overpriced Brechin player and sticking with their man-in-form, Robert Thomson, who is 15-2 with McBookie to score first.

My other two selections are in the basement and I’ll start with a question: Would you like to take 4-7 about a team who lost their last league match 6-0, have lost three on the bounce and won just three of their 15 games since Boxing Day?

The answer ought to be no even if the opposition happens to be bottom club East Stirling. I’ve mentioned before that League Two has a compressed look about it and half of the 10 teams are still 10-1 or less to win the title with just six games remaining.

There has been no stand-out team and whenever I have felt the odds have been too short about a side I have stepped in and backed the outsiders. The Shire have already done me two big-priced favours this season and Saturday could be the third as they are 9-2 to beat Stirling.

Don’t get me wrong East Stirling are not a good side but they shouldn’t be as big as 9-2 and their striker Thomas Orr probably shouldn’t be 15-2 with McBookie to score the first goal.

Finally, it is not often I go for short-priced first scorers but East Fife are in such good form I thought they would be shorter than 9-10 at home to Queens Park.

The Fifers have scored 13 goals in their last three games including winning 6-0 last weekend and have won five of their last six taking them to the top of the table.

Sadly for personal, financial reasons (my ante-post bets) that run hasn’t done me any favours with a portfolio including second-placed Clyde (8-1) and third-placed Elgin (20-1) but not leaders East Fife.

Nathan Austin has been the man inflicting most of the damage on myself and other teams with his 21 league goals this season. Austin is 19-5 with McBookie to open the scoring on Saturday.

Can you find a winner this weekend?

    Thank you very much for the free McB bet.

    Quick point on your above picks….write up is fantastic but in selections yoy have the main man Nathan Austin (Clyde) <—Yuck
    Nathan Austin is black and gold for life….or until he joins Falkirk next year.

    I fancy my own team again this week but its a tough call to name who the two stickers will be starting (Austin, Insall, Smith)

    *after all that I check McBookie for odds on all above strickers and Kyle Wilkie and no 1st goalscorer available…….

    My selection;

    Kenny Miller
