May 14: 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. There was only one correct entry last week and that was budgies bravehearts with Patrick Roberts at 6-1 for Celtic. 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 weekend’s selections – and this time it is last effort of the season.

He says: This will be the last column of the season (cue the cheers) and there’s been some decent winners along the way and some “value losers”.

We had a nice winner last weekend with Greig Spence and hopefully we can go out with a bang rather than a whimper unlike Aberdeen’s title challenge. I’m starting this weekend with Stranraer who I have been really impressed with of late.

Manager Brian Reid has done a tremendous job this season taking over from Stephen Aitken at this time last year and is just one win away from taking them into the Championship.

I watched the first 90 minutes of their play-off final with Ayr on BBC Alba in midweek and felt the Stair Park side were incredibly unlucky to finish level having dominated for most of the game.

Steven Docherty’s 94th-minute equaliser for Ayr gives the advantage to the Honest Men but the bookies have overreacted once again in making Ayr 8-11 favourites in the 90-minute market.

For my money you can’t get a cigarette paper between these two teams yet having bossed the first leg Stranraer are available at 19-5.

I have already backed Stranraer to win this game and for a first scorer I’m going to stick with Mark McGuigan, who I tipped up last weekend, only for him to score first on Wednesday night.

McGuigan has nine goals from his last 14 games and bagging a 15th with the first goal of the game is a 7-1  chance with McBookie.

In the League Two play-off final second leg I can’t quite get my head around the fact Edinburgh City are favourites to win at East Stirling.

Both sides finished the game with 10 men and while Edinburgh City had the lion’s share of the chances but should they really be favourites to win the second leg?

I obviously think they shouldn’t and I’ll be going for David McKenna to open the scoring at 5-1 with McBookie.

McKenna started on the bench for the first leg but I suspect he will start for this home tie now the Shire are looking for goals that will take them through.

Can you find a winner this weekend?
