Oct 1: Scottish Betting Preview


RANGERS have a bad experience of one Glasgow derby this season but will be hoping to enjoy it more when the city’s third club visit Ibrox.

Victory over Partick Thistle won’t be celebrated in the same way as one over Celtic but it will be just as welcome for boss Mark Warburton.

His side have gone four Premiership games without a win but have performed well in their last two – an unlucky 2-1 defeat at Aberdeen and 0-0 draw with Ross County.

Warbs needs a result and I believe he’ll get it against a Jags side propping up the table after one win in their opening six.

At a best price of 2-5 with Stan James Gers can be placed on accumulators and if you fancy a single what about the home win and both to score at 12-5 with 888sport.

You’re more likely to see a comet at Ibrox than a clean sheet with the Ross County draw Rangers’ only one in the league. While Thistle are struggling they have scored in five out of six with Chris Erskine their most likely marksman at 9-1 with bet365.

Erskine is 25-1 at bet365 and 10Bet to score first compared with 11-1 at Coral.

Martyn Waghorn is first-score favourite at 9-2 with Coral and hit a hat-trick in his last home game against Queen of the South in the Betfred Cup.

Meanwhile, how much will Man City have taken out of Celtic legs? That’s the big question as the Hoops head to Dundee for the lunchtime kick-off.

Celtic are no bigger than 1-4 at William Hill and Brendan Rodgers could rest some weary legs. They should still be good enough and I’m on them to win by at least two at 4-6 with Ladbrokes.

One player raring to go will be Leigh Griffiths and if he starts take him to score first against his old team at 7-2 with Betfred.

Aberdeen will be boosted by their last-gasp win over Rangers and should follow up with victory at a Kilmarnock side smashed 6-1 at Celtic Park.

The Dons are a best 4-7 and is maybe a bit short for an away. What about James Maddison to score for the third game running at 9-4 with Paddy Power.

Despite last week’s scoreline it was a memorable game for Killie striker Souleymane Coulibaly who beat Dorus de Vries from 44 yards. He is 3-1 at McBookie to net again.

Inverness are one of the form sides and can extend their unbeaten run to five with victory at Hamilton. Richie Foran’s men took time to get going but in recent weeks have held Celtic and Aberdeen and beaten Dundee.

Caley Thistle are 11-8 with McBookie and William Hill and you can keep the draw on side by backing them not to lose at 4-11 with Ladbrokes.

Ross County v St Johnstone isn’t an easy call but it could under 2.5 goals. County’s previous five matches have gone that way as have Saints’ last four. At Dingwall four of the last six meetings have gone under 1.5 goals.

Under 2.5 goals pays 5-6 at McBookie and under 1.5 is 5-2 with Marathonbet.

In the Championship best bets could be Falkirk at managerless St Mirren in the live teatime game – and I see Jean Tigana’s been touted as next boss – has he actually seen Paisley. It’s no Nice and it’s very nice either.

Falkirk have won five in a row in all competitions and while Saints were better last week at Dunfermline conceding four goals suggests major problems at the back.

Take Bairns at 11-10 with McBookie and William Hill and consider Falkirk and both to score at 16-5 with William Hill.

In League One I like Alloa at home to Airdrie and East Fife against Stenny although in the latter over 3.5 goals at 6-4 with Paddy Power. Stenny’s last four have gone over 3.5 – totalling 20.

Best bets in League Two are Forfar at 9-20 with McBookie and I like Cowdenbeath at home to Stirling and Elgin v Annan.
