NOV 7: SPFL FIRST SCORER TIPS & CONTEST

GenericFootball_KickOff

THE only online bookmaker listing first-scorer prices on all SPFL games are McBookie.com – and Damian Walker is back with his popular first-scorer tips.

It’s a great service they provide and we’ve teamed up with the Scots firm to look at some of the best bets from the Scottish lower leagues.

Also leave your pick of first scorers at the end of this article for a chance to win a £10 free bet with McBookie.com. Last week there were four winners and after a random draw the prize goes to Neil Renton who tipped Celtic’s Leigh Griffiths at 16-5.

You can choose this weekend from the Premiership, Championship, League One and League Two games. One correct entry will be picked at random to win the prize. Quote player, team and his odds – and a reason if you like.

Here is McBookie.com man Damian Walker’s Saturday selections.

He says: In last week’s column we weren’t sure whether to take Livingston but they’ve now notched superb wins against Queen of the South and Livingston.

Since losing 1-0 away to Rangers in the Challenge Cup Livi have won two with seven goals for and just one against. So it is a little surprising to see them chalked up at 9-4 for their trip to Morton.

I tipped up prolific scorer Liam Buchanan last weekend but it was Jordan White who weighed in with the opening goal, quickly followed by another. White has now scored 15 times from 32 starts for Livingston, a similar strike rate to the one he had at Stirling Albion after signing for them after a loan period – 15 goals from 35 starts.

With Mark Burchill’s side and White in particular in such good form McBookie’s quote of 7-1 about him opening the scoring looks fair.

Staying in the Championship and the form of Hibs striker Jason Cummings has been nothing short of remarkable this season. Cummings has played in 17 matches and scored in 12 of them including his last six straight games.

And his amazing scoring run stretches back to the end of last season where he scored nine goals from the last 13 games. Adding the two spells together totals 21 goals from 30 matches.

Amazingly, during those 30 games Cummings has never scored more than a single goal which must have been torture for anyone backing him in the “to score two or more goals” market.

Anyway, Cummings is 4-1 with McBookie to score the opener against a St Mirren side who have won just one from their last seven Championship games but have Alex Miller at the helm after Ian Murray’s departure.

In League One it is worth taking a chance on a Peterhead first scorer against red-hot title favourites Dunfermline. The Blue Toon have been the most difficult side to get right in this league for the past two seasons but one thing they do is score goals.

In fact they have scored in 10 of their 12 League One matches this season and although they lie in seventh place in the table only Dunfermline and Ayr have scored more league goals.

So while Dunfermline may win it is worth chancing a first goal for Peterhead given they are a massive 9-1 for the win on Saturday and the Pars failed to score against the league’s leakiest defence last weekend in Cowdenbeath.

There is only one man to seriously consider for the first goal when it comes to Peterhead scorers and that is Rory McAllister who has 10 league goals already this season and 17 from 16 appearances in total. McAllister is 2-1 with McBookie to finish the season as League One’s top scorer and 13-2 to score the first goal on Saturday.

Can you find a winner!
